If you have 5 inches (hard) you're totally within normal range, brother, regardless of how small you are soft. It's not a bad idea to talk to your doc to get some individualized feedback, (although I doubt he or she is going to ask to see your erection). There's so much variation in what is "normal." For every guy out there with a 7-incher, there's also a guy out there with a 5er, so you've got lots of company. A couple of suggestions: If you're overweight, you can lose weight to maximize appearance. Get in good shape to bring attention to other aspects of your physique. In fact, I have a theory that most bodybuilders are guys with either a short penis complex or a complex about their height. Unfortunately the penis has no muscles to exercise, so all the stretching you read about and pills advertised don't really do jack. They just play on every man's wish for a bigger one. It's part of our competative nature, I think. Don't waste your youth and energy worrying about what some girl with a raggedy stretched-out vagina doesn't like. Don't make it your problem. Good luck! ----EugenioView Thread
All the things you're trying or thinking about trying may never make a hemorrhoid "go away."
If it continues to bother you after all this time, I'd consult a doctor. Sometimes a hemorrhoid can be banded to cut off the blood supply and it will fall off by itself in a short time. Sometimes it takes surgery.
Good that you made the diet changes (high fiber, high fluids, etc.).View Thread
My first recommendation would be to stop masturbating 1-2 times a week. When you're TTC, it's wasteful and may be depleting your supply.
As guys we are accustomed to being in total control of the rhythm, speed, and pressure that brings orgasm when we masturbate. During intercourse, not so much. If masturbation is more stimulating than intercourse for you in terms of getting to orgasm, you may need to re-train your penis (and your brain) to orgasm/ejaculate with less direct pressure, etc. In other words, with sensations more like actual intercourse. I think it's do-able, but requires breaking certain habits you've likely had for a long time.
From what you posted, most likely guesses are a UTI, kidney stone, or prostatitis. Blood in the urine should be checked out if it happens more than once or twice. Inability to urinate can be very serious from a couple of standpoints. Hope he's OK now, whether he got checked or not...View Thread
If they're not abscesses (a skin infection) they could be swollen lymph glands, which can be from an active recent illness or infection, or rarely, a sign of something more serious with your immune system. Young guys (I have no idea your age) can experience gynecomastia which can manifest as a tender lump near a nipple. It's usually nothing serious, but might bear checking out by your doc.View Thread
Are you on any medicine that would deplete your potassium? Are you on some sort of extreme diet or exercise program? If none of these, I'd just try to drink lots of fluids and a potassium-rich diet for a while.View Thread
It sounds like an inclusion cyst, which is the result of a blocked oil gland. It might have dissolved on its own eventually. Kind of risky to be cutting down there; lots of nerves and blood vessels, and risk of infection. If any continued pain, redness, swelling, fever, I'd say yes, go see your doc.View Thread
