hello, I'm a 20 year old man, I'm not sexually active I've been with 2 woman only those 2 times. 3 weeks ago I measured my penis by lack of confidence I guess, since I didn't have a ruler I measured it with an online ruler by drawing the measures on a piece of paper it turns out I was only 5 inch long so then I went out to buy an official ruler per say, it turned out I was measuring it wrong, the measures on the paper were longer than the ruler, I was a little over 5.5 inches puting the ruler beside the paper. Since then I started getting really nervous and wanted to get the official measurement with the actual ruler. Now everytime I measure I get nervous and anxious, my penis lenght now varies from 4.5 inch to 5,(not fully erect) I can tell because I remember I could put both my hands in my penis and the top would show up, now it does not! I'm woried my penis has shrunk, is this possible? Cam a viagra pill help? Btw I'm only 2.5 inch flaccid. Answer honestly and objectevily please.
Please note if you have the following :
1. Proper development of the pubic and axillary hair.
2. size of the erect penis > 3.5 inches (at least)
3. Testicular size ( length) > 1 inch (at least)
4. Ejaculation of semen when you masturbate.
In case you have all of the above findings, then you are completely normal and the things which you have mentioned are of no concern so stop worrying.The size of the flacid penis varies a lot and depends on many factors as stress,environment condition,blood supply etc.There is no need to take viagra or any other pills.Stop worrying.Remember a penis can never shrink in size.
