Non surgical methods for penile enhancement There are several conservative measures that if used properly, might help in gaining some length and possibly strength during erection.
Penis stretching refers to using own hands or a device to increase the length or girth of the penis.
Although there’s evidence to suggest that stretching can increase penile size, the results are usually minimal. In some cases, they may even be temporary.
It’s important to remember that much of the evidence around penis stretching is anecdotal, as there are no randomized trials with its effects to draw a valuable conclusion.
Manual stretching exercises involve using own hand to massage the tissues along the length of the penis. This is intended to stretch the skin and create “micro-tears” in the tissue.
The tissues may appear engorged as they heal, making the penis look longer.
Some exercises also claim to increase girth. Girth exercises, such as jelqing, are also centered around tissue massage.
Consistency is key to maintaining either of these purported effects. However, excessive use of such exercises might lead to more tissue damage leading to harmful outcomes.
Penile Enhancement Exercises
This is carried out by grasping the penis just behind its head. Don’t hold it too firmly or too loose. The penis is then gently stretched initially downwards for 20-30 seconds followed by upwards stretch for another 20-30 seconds
2. Rotational stretch
This is achieved by grasping the penis just below its head and pulling it outwards firmly. It is normal to feel a stretch in the shaft but not any pain. Then the penis is moved in circular motion maintaining the stretch and grip. Each rotation should take around 30 seconds. For each direction, at least three rotations are to be performed.
With the penis being partially erect and using a lubricant, the penis is held at the base with the thumb and index finger. Slow movement of the hand up the penis maintaining the pressure.This is one jelq and it should take you 2 to 3 seconds to do 1 jelq. This help in pushing the blood towards tip of the penis and will not cause any pain. Repeat this process.
The key is to identify the Pubococcygeus muscle by stopping the flow of urine. Once recognized, the muscle is held in contraction for about five seconds and then released. This method is then repeated as many times as desired, ideally for about 30 minutes every day to see an improvement in erection.
5. Opposite stretch
After folding the tip and base of the Leno’s with each hand respectively, both hands are then pulled in opposite direction, without causing any pain. This position is held for about 30 seconds and then relax. This method is repeated as required and after enough number of stretches let your penis relax.
Research on penis stretching techniques is limited. None of the studies that have been done point to any one technique as an effective way to permanently lengthen the penis. However, a temporary increase in size may be possible.One 2010 review reported that men who used the Andropenis stretching device saw an increase in size with extended daily use. Participants used the device for six hours per day over the course of four months. They gained anywhere from 1.8 to 3.1 centimeters (cm) in length.
Stretching with a device
To use a penis pump:
- Place your penis inside the air-filled chamber.
- Use the pump mechanism to suck the air out of the chamber. This pulls blood into your penis, causing it to become erect.
- Attach the included ring or clamp to your penis to keep it erect for up to 30 minutes. It’s safe to have sex or masturbate during this time.
- Remove the ring.
To use a traction device:
- Insert your penis into the base end of the device.
- Secure the head of your penis within the two notches at the opposite end.
- Fasten the silicone tube around the shaft of the penis.
- Grip the ends of the silicone tube on the bottom of the device and slowly pull your penis outward. Stop pulling if it starts to feel painful or uncomfortable.
- Leave the penis in the stretched position for 4 to 6 hours a day.
Potential risks and complications
Being too rough with your penis can cause large tears in the tissues or damage to the ligaments that connect your penis to your body. These injuries can potentially hinder your ability to get or maintain an erection. When wearing a traction device, follow your doctor’s instructions for how long to wear it. Wearing it any longer can cause injuries that affect the penis function. After using a pump, don’t let the blood stay in your penis for more than 30 minutes. Having an erection for more than a few hours can permanently damage your penis. Stretching exercises or devices may cause:
- minor bruising or discoloration
- red spots along the penile shaft
- vein rupture
See your doctor if your symptoms last for more than a couple of days or are severe. Your doctor can assess your symptoms and advise you on any next steps.
Your results will depend on the approach you take and how consistent you are with use. Traction devices, for example, must be used daily — often for months at a time — in order to achieve any noticeable effects. Anecdotal reports suggest that using a penis pump can produce much faster results, but there isn’t any research to support this.It’s also unclear how much time will pass before you see results from manual stretching exercises.
