The average girth is 3. Girth is the circumference of the penis at its widest section. What does the research say? The BJUI research used data from 17 studies, and the study participants totaled more than 15, men.
Results Fourty-four patients Only one patient 1. Fifteen men The mean length estimated by the patient was 12 cm range 10— Figures 2 and 3 shows the distribution of patients in our nomogram according to the penile length as assessed with our method.
Erect lengths in the included studies were measured by pushing the pre-pubic fat pad to the bone, and flaccid or erect girth circumference was measured at the base or mid-shaft of the penis. The same phenomenon affects cyclist and exercise bike users, with prolonged pressure on the perineum from the bicycle saddle and the straining of the exercise causing the penis and scrotum to contract involuntarily. An incorrect saddle may ultimately cause erectile dysfunction see crotch pressure for more information. Stretched Neither age nor size of the flaccid penis accurately predicted erectile length.
Am I normal? The findings in BJU International may be helpful when counseling men who are worried about their size, or when investigating the relationship between condom failure and penile dimensions. Some men are concerned about their penis size, and those who are preoccupied and severely distressed with the size of their penis may even be diagnosed with Body Dysmorphic Disorder. There have been no formal systematic reviews of penile size measurements and no attempts to create a graphical diagram, or nomogram, that depicts the distribution of the size of a flaccid or erect penis. A search of the medical literature revealed 17 studies with up to 15, males who underwent penis size measurements by health professionals using a standard procedure.
