It is common for young men, who indulge in masturbation, to have such issues. But this common issue of lack of proper erections is transient and is mostly due to stress.
You should relax for now, and stop masturbating for a while, and indulge in other activities to take your mind off the matter. After some time, you will begin to have proper normal erections.
With regard to the size of the penis, I would like to let you know that unless you are in possession of a âmicropenis - a rare condition in which a manâs erect penis is shorter âthan 2 inches in length - size does ânot and should not matter. â
When measuring the penis dimensions, you need to consider the following :
â1. length (the measurement from the base of a manâs penis to the tip) and
â2. girth (the distance around a âpenis, usually measured at the middle of a manâs penile shaft).
The average penis ranges between 3.5 and 6.2 âinches in length and between 3.7 and 5.1 inches in girth âwhen erect.â
In case, you still do think that your penis is very small, then consulting a urologist for a proper âevaluation and discussion of surgical elongation of penis can be considered.
