Growth and development is continuous. Every individual is different, and there is no specific timeframe that puberty to end , at which point complete adulthood is attained.
But in general, If you are concerned that you have a small penis, then you need to measure your penis size properly.
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
If you think that you have a small penis, and still have doubts, it would be recommended that you consult with your doctor and seek counselling. This can help you become more confident with your sexuality.
