User :   why is it that I'm 18 years old but my genital area hasn't kept up with my growing like the rest of my body?
Doctor :   Hi Dr
Doctor :   let me read ur query
User :   ok
Doctor :   May i confirm your gender, height, weight before i proceed ?
User :   male. 5'7" 200 pounds
Doctor :   ok
Doctor :   now, can u tell if you have developed pubic hair and axillary hair ? and if so, do u remember when you first started to have them ?
Doctor :   also can u tell me the size of the penis in inches, both when flaccid and erect ?
User :   yes i developed pubic hair. around the age of twelve to thriteen. I dont really remember
User :   and well flaccid is barely 2 inches and when erect it hardly reaches 4 inches
Doctor :   ok
Doctor :   have u gained height over the last year ?
User :   not really. I stopped growing like 2 years ago
Doctor :   ok,
Doctor :   do you work out , and do u take any medicines ?

User :   and no i dont take medications
Doctor :   also, do u have any medical condtions like asthma ?
Doctor :   ok,
User :   yes I have asthma
Doctor :   so do u take steroids etc like prednisone ?
User :   no
Doctor :   so is it controlled by itself ?
User :   well I went to an astham specialist and he had me in tratment and now it's controlled on its own
User :   i meant treatment. sorry
Doctor :   Now, genital growth is gained upto the age of 20 yrs even after growth has stoped vertically
Doctor :   since you are still 18, i expect the penis to gain length over the next 2- 3 yrs
Doctor :   also, the normal penis size in adult men - ranges from 3 inches to 5 inches when erect
Doctor :   also, for sexual satisfaction a penis of 2 inches is medically enough to excite and cause orgasm to a female
Doctor :   as the first 1 & 1/2 inches of the vagina - is the most excitable areas in the female
Doctor :   also the clitoris is easily available on the surface
Doctor :   so once you master the techniques and using a prper sex position, you will not have any issues for sexual performance
Doctor :   the idea of a large penis is overated
Doctor :   the basics of a great sex life - is about the attitude and the using the mind to excite the female
Doctor :   have u understood my advice
User :   Yes I understand
User :   but it's because I seriously haven't seen any growth in my penis since my early teens
Doctor :   since you are just 18, i hope you will gain in length over the next 2-3 yr s
Doctor :   as i said, are u having trouble maintaining a hard penis ?
User :   well. Not really
Doctor :   there are a lot of guys with a penis size less than yours
Doctor :   and you have a average sized penis at your age
Doctor :   so dont bother about it
Doctor :   just be confident and use techniques than the lenghth to sexual satisfactio
User :   ok
Doctor :   Do u have any other wuery
Doctor :   also for a largeer penis, during sex, try penile rings , which may help you
Doctor :   i hope i have solved your query
