Micro Penis can be defined as an unusually small penis, featuring a stretched flaccid length of less than 2 centimeters for a newborn male child and less than 4 centimeters for a grownup. The condition can be diagnosed shortly after birth, just as the rest of the perineum, scrotum and penis are fully formed and there could be no doubt about size. The rate of occurrence is 0.6% of the male population.
The causes of this condition are commonly thought to be a low production of prenatal androgen. The male fetus does not receive the normal amount of androgen and so the penis does not reach the average size. This condition has a powerful impact on a man's self esteem and self-image. While a man suffering from micropenis can still have children, intercourse could be a problem. Even the male custom of urinating from the standing position is not easy for a man with a micropenis.
However, there are ways to treat micropenis. One of the best approaches is to treat it during infancy by supplementing the male hormones. A number of surgical techniques aimed at enlarging the penis have been devised, but are rarely performed in such cases since the results are not good enough. A better method is to use a traction device in order to enlarge the penis in a natural way.
If you don't suffer from the condition, but simply have a small penis and want to enlarge it in a natural way, you can always try penis enlargement exercises. Exercises are probably one of the safest and healthiest ways to increase the length and girth of the penis in both the flaccid and erect states.
