Hello

Welcome and Thank you for your query posted.

My name is***** and being a Skin, Hair and Nail specialist I would be able to provide you with an appropriate solution to your concern.

Please note that my Goal is to provide you with an Excellent Service .

Before I answer your question I would like to get some more information:

The size of the penis is considered a hormonal issue if the other features like lack of voice break at puberty , no hair in underarm and pubic areas , central truncal fat distribution.

If you have any of the above mentioned issue then it is a hormonal issue.

Otherwise it is just an anatomical / structural issue.

Please do remember that you can please any woman even with a 3 inch erect penis and you do not have to worry about the size . Do not be embarassed about the size of the penis . It is a very common to have a 3 inch erect penis in men.

Please note that the answer provided is for information purpose only and does not substitute a Doctor - Patient Consultation in Clinic

I guess its structural then...is there anything i can do to enlarge it though?
Dermatologist: Dr. Pravin, Dermatologist replied 2 years ago

Enlarging penile size is possible by regularly exercising the muscle of the penis ( masturbation ) , or directly through surgical ( plastic surgery )

Well my girlfriend usually masterbates me on a daily basis

Please note that pills and creams for penis enlargement do not work and are mostly a hoax ( you may have seen advertisements over the internet )

Do you Agree with what I have mentioned ?

Dermatologist: Dr. Pravin, Dermatologist replied 2 years ago

Repeated stroking of the penis from the base to the corona ( glans ) so called " milking " the penis can help in some cases . This again can be a part of masturbation that involves exercising the muscle.
