The most important hormones involved in the male reproductive system are testosterone, Gonadotropin-Releasing Hormone (GnRH) and Follicle-Stimulating Hormone (FSH) and Luteinizing Hormone (LH).
As a male child grows, it is testosterone that is primarily responsible for the growth and development of the male genitalia. However, as human growth hormone (HGH) is critical to all the processes that allow a child to grow into a mature adult of full stature, HGH is also involved in the growth of the penis and male sex organs to some degree.
Even once a man is fully grown, HGH continues to play an essential role in your ability to obtain and maintain an erection.
How Does Human Growth Hormone Affect Penile Growth?
There is a belief that HGH injections can be used to increase penis size in men that are unhappy with the size of their penis. This is for the most part untrue.
HGH along with testosterone plays a role in the maturity of the sex organs. But HGH only influences penis size as a child grows from a boy to a man. Once a child is fully grown and he has achieved his full height, HGH injections can no more make his penis any bigger than it could make an adult man grow taller.
Can HGH therapy Increase Penis and Testicle Size in Adults?
The myth that HGH can be used for male enhancement or to increase penis size is because it is used to treat a condition known as a “micropenis” in children that are growth hormone deficient.
In children that are undeveloped due to growth hormone deficiency (GHD) growth hormone helps them to achieve full stature. Often children who are failing to reach developmental milestones due to GHD will have underdeveloped sex organs, in boys a so-called “micropenis.” In such boys, injections has allowed their penis to “grow” and mature normally — but only to the normal “adult size” it was meant to be. HGH only has this effect on the penises of children that are still growing — it cannot and does not increase penis size in a full-grown man.
Because HGH injections are used to treat “micropenis” in children this is how the myth that HGH can improve penis size got started.
HGH and Erectile Dysfunction
While the claims that HGH can increase penis size are for the most part false, there is a connection between HGH and erectile dysfunction.
Erectile dysfunction, or ED, is defined as “the persistent inability to achieve or maintain an erection that is satisfactory for sexual intercourse.”
Statically speaking, 50% of all men have experienced erectile dysfunction at some time or another. After age 40, nearly 40% have to deal with the condition, and by 70 years old, about 70% of men experience some form of ED, usually accompanied by a loss of libido or sex drive.
The good news is that ED, especially “age-related” ED, can be helped by growth hormone replacement therapy. HGH has been shown to both improve libido and help men with ED. Human growth hormone has been clinically proven to be a safe and effective solution for many men who are suffering from ED. When properly prescribed by your doctor, HGH therapy can be a proven alternative to oral ED medications and other ED treatments in helping many men with ED enjoy their sex lives once again.
It is not entirely understood how HGH can improve erectile function. One theory suggests that raising HGH levels increases nitrous oxide production. Nitrous oxide is instrumental in getting and obtaining an erection. Studies have also found that growth hormone therapy can increase testosterone. Low testosterone is a known contributing factor to ED.
Are There Proven Ways to Really Increase Penis Size?
There are a lot of claims made about “male enhancement products” or pills and things that claim to increase penis size. Most of these claims are dubious at best and some of these products can actually be dangerous.
Despite recent headlines about the dubious, and in some cases, dangerous nature of many of these products, advertisements for countless, pumps, pills, and powders offering to add inches to your penis continue.
Do any of them work? Basically, no. Beyond surgery, there are few if any medically proven devices or products that can provide any kind of permanent male enhancement or increased penis size.
Penis Pills — you have seen the ads, or gotten the emails for supplements with hundreds of names like Extenz, Maximus, Erex, etc, etc. These are all complete waste of money. They cannot provide anywhere near the results they claim, and some can be downright deadly.
Penis Pumps — A penis pump works by forming a vacuum seal around the penis and pulling more blood into the penis. In this regard, they can help somewhat in some cases of Erectile Dysfunction, but any increase in size is temporary, and prolonged use without medical supervision, could lead to damage to the penis.
Penis Surgery — There is a technique called phalloplasty, or penis enlargement surgery, but it should not be used for purely cosmetic reasons, and even then, only in cases of extremely small penis, as in 3 inches or less.
Non-invasive, Non-surgical ways for Penis Enlargement
In recent years there have been some medical proven, non-invasive techniques that have been introduced that can actually increase penis size without the use of painful and invasive surgery. One of the most effective of these it’s the Priapus shot, also known as the “P-shot.”
The P-shot uses platelet rich plasma, or PRP.
PRP uses stem cells and the growth factors in your own blood to increase blood supply to the penis and to stimulate the growth of new penile tissue. PRP, as used in the P-shot is administered in a simple pain-free injection. The results are almost immediate and can last for over one-year.
The results of the P-shot are almost immediate. Within just days, or weeks, patients should see:
- Better erections. Doctors use a 25 point erectile function scale to evaluate erections. Men who have taken the P-shot have gone up as much as a 5-points on the 25 point erectile function scale.
- Enlargement of the penis. The P-shot usually results in increases of at least a half-inch in both length and girth of the penis. Increases in penis size of up to 2 inches are not uncommon!
- Better overall sexual performance, and a feeling of being “a young man again.”
In fact, to achieve the same increases in length, as well as overcome ED as with PRP, you would have to have penile implant surgery.
