Yeah, I remember a semi-humorus joke about life lessons drawn from baseball. Of all the different things that you can learn from playing the game over the years perhaps the most important one is this: always wear your cup!!View Thread
You know, probably going to a doctor would be a good idea. We're all different and maybe you're on a slower timetable than you'd like -- that's a possibility. Sometimes everything isn't fully grown by age 18. I know that in my early 20s my facial hair was very light in color even though I have dark hair. I had a moustache but you couldn't see it. I was in the service at the time and took a lot of ribbing from the other guys because I would go to the PX and buy an eyebrow pencil (made for women) to darken my moustache up so it could be seen. By the time I reached my late 20s all my facial hair darkened and I didn't need the pencil any more.
Maybe your penis is still growing (in it's soft state, that is!); may be it's at its full length now. If that's the case maybe the doctor could recommend a counselor to help you work with that. But let me assure you: no matter how big your dick is, just about every guy wishes his was bigger. I do, too, but actually women have told me they were glad that it wasn't! And having a bigger dick really doesn't make your life any better.
It's good that you weren't too embarrassed to get in touch with us here; don't be too embarrassed to talk to someone who could help you! Good luck, and let us know how it goes.View Thread
While my thought is in no way a professional opinion I wonder if you might be having some sort of dermatological problem or fungus. To find out and get it treated you would need to see a doctor to have an exam and evaluation. Doctors are good at giving things names and us things we can do to care for whatever it is.
Your penis certainly deserves care -- and it is depending on you to take care of it! Hope you have some treatment soon.
What you're asking is probably beyond what most of us in the user/poster community here are able to comment upon. An endocrinologist -- an MD specializing in how your hormones work -- would probably be the best place to take your concerns and find out if what you're doing is best for you.
It can be hard when you're not the same as other people around you -- in your family -- and you would just as soon be like them. We all have ways in which we are unlike others and need to find ways to improve our contentment with what we do have. Good luck in your pursuit of good health and happiness!View Thread
One of the great services which doctors perform is helping us to stop worrying about all the possibilities something could be. I usually find it's better to be concerning knowing that something is something rather than worrying that something could be any of a whole bunch of possibilities, some unpleasant.
Guess I'm suggesting that you stop by your MD or an Urgent Care office to be checked and get your questions gone over. Hopefully that would make you feel better -- in addition to whatever they may be able to give you.
When the old bod isn't acting the way we think it should it's usually best to see what we can do to help it heal itself.View Thread
Hi Workoutjunky22 -- there aren't any pills out there which will make the penis any bigger. Basically we need to learn how to enjoy what we have more. That said, there is an old practice called the jelq; and jelqing as a manual method of stroking the penis in a semi-hard state so that larger and longer version is how one hangs when soft more of the time. There's a thread either here or on the Man-to-Man Topics board of WebMD -- or you could look it up on a search engine. It costs nothing, only take some time and you already have the equipment you need to jelq.
The jelq primarily consists of gently pulling, stretching or milking your penis when it is in a semi-hard state -- you could always make your exercise time a true full body work-out if you were able to do some of these exercises as part of your wind-up cool down time.
And I'd ask you why you want a bigger penis, but that's a stupid question. I know, we all do, don't we!View Thread
You're 19 and are having problems with your the wrist of what appears to be your dominant hand. You have a long time ahead of you when you're going to be wanting to have that wrist functioning well for you to get the maximum enjoyment from life. I'm not a medical type but to me it sounds like you have a repetitive stress injury from gaming as well as trauma from having punched solid objects. I believe such problems would need to be treated by a doctor to get improvement and to keep from further problems developing.
One problem at at time: get some medical help for your wrist. Then you can tackle such things as your weight -- and that is something which you can handle at home with certain diets.
Take care of yourself, and good luck! Let us know how it goes.View Thread
Ooops -- think I have been confused by the previous post as to who said what; I now think that WilAtl had cut-and-pasted Dr Marks comments into his response. In any case -- thanks to all for opening up and sharing. It's something we guys may have a hard time doing but we can get a lot of benefit by doing that. And thanks to Dr Marks for providing professional thought and guidance where needed.View Thread
Dr Marks -- thanks so much for opening up and showing us a piece of your private side. I know that after my first wife died a few years ago I had some emotional issues to deal with but fought against being a recluse. I knew that for me I needed to develop some support groups to get through it. For starters I began to have morning workouts so that I could shave and shower with the guys at the gym instead of doing it at home alone. Then I went on from there. Along the way my PCP found that I could benefit from Androgel after having my testosterone checked, something which I hadn't had done before. Fast frame to today and I'm happily re-married and am continuing to find good things in life -- the discussions here on WebMD have certainly been one of them! My thanks and good wishes to you and the other guys for good days ahead.View Thread
