The psychological belief that one’s penis is smaller than normal is known as penis size anxiety. This particular belief can stem from various psychological factors, the depiction of men in modern media. Some men often feel unable to satisfy their partner in bed due to penis size anxiety. In fact, a lot of men misjudge their penile size, even if they are above average.

Owing to various reasons, it is believed that the width of the penis is sexually stimulating for women. The width of the penis is more satisfying to the opening of the clitoris.

Penile enlargement options like pills, lotions, penile stretcher, vacuum pumps, and surgical extensions are available but they come with their own set of side effects and complications. Also, it is important to note that there is no 100% guarantee that these methods work. The average size of the penis is between 5-6 inches. This treatment can be done with the help of hormones. Male hormone replacement, growth hormone therapy, IGF-1 therapy, DHT therapy, and gonadotropin therapy etc are some of the common hormone therapies.
