My question is regarding the classification of micropenis. As I understand it, a micropenis is defined as a penis with a length that is less than, or equal to, 2.5 standard deviations below the average penis length. I have not, however, found any information regarding classifying a penis as a micropenis relative to girth, or volume.

Is a penis considered to be a micropenis if the girth is less than or equal to 2.5 standard deviations below the average penis girth?

Or volume?

Thank you

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. Yes , 1.5 inches or less than that is micropenis when erect. Usually 3 to 4 inches is the penis length when erect. Rest of the penis sizes are overrated and camera illusion.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
