It would probably be fairly difficult to find a man who wouldn’t like to have a larger penis. Even those who have a decent sized penis can often feel a little self conscious about it and feel like having a little extra length or girth would give them that confidence boost that they need.
This has resulted in a growing number of men turning to penis enlargement pills in the hope of getting the larger penis they have dream of having. However, there is only so much that these pills can do.
If you have tried them then ask yourself, are you satisfied in using penis enlargement pills, or are you hoping for some more noticeable results?
Let’s take a closer look at penis enlargement pills and some alternatives.
What Are Penis Enlargement Pills?
Penis enlargement pills are basically supplements which are designed to increase blood flow to the genitals. The majority of these pills claim to use only natural ingredients making them completely safe to use.
if you are going to give penis enlargement pills a try then you do need to be aware that they are are not regulated and so it is always possible that there is something harmful in the supplement. A degree of caution should be exercised when going down this route in your quest for a larger penis.
The majority of these pills or supplements are made up of at least some of the following ingredients in varying ratios:
- catuaba bark extract
- cuscuta seed extract
- ginko biloba leaf
- asian red ginseng
- saw palmetto berry
- epimedium leaf extract
- muira pauma bark extract
- hawthorn berry
How Do Penis Enlargement Pills Work?
One of the biggest disappointments that men encounter when the use penis enlargement pills is that they are expecting the pills to enlarge their penis permanently. However, this is not the case. In fact, these supplement style pills can only offer temporary results and only while the penis is erect.
This is because of how penis enlargement pills actually work. They are designed to increase blood flow by triggering the dilation of blood vessels in the penis. This rush of blood make the penis larger, but only when it becomes erect – also triggered by the rush of blood.
The ingredients are also capable of increasing sexual desire by boosting testosterone levels. These effects combined give a temporary enlargement of the penis. When you understand how the pills actually work, it becomes clear that they should be taken prior to sex and will not offer any long term results.
They depend on arousal to be effective. Are you satisfied in using penis enlargement pills for a very short term effect? If the answer is no then you should consider some alternative options.
Considering The Alternatives
So if penis enlargement pills do not really work the way that they claim to, does that mean that there is no hope? Of course not. There are alternatives out there for men who are keen to have a larger penis. One of these options is to have surgery to enlarge the penis.
However, this is fairly expensive and complex process and many men see it as a last resort. It involves cutting the suspensory ligament to create additional length and adding additional skin to accommodate the added length.
There is a lack of information published regarding results but the operation will generally add between 0.25 to 0.75 inches. The cutting of the ligament means that the erect penis loses support which means that after surgery, the erect penis will point downward rather than upwards.
Surgery or using weights?
Some men also choose to have the girth increased surgically by injecting fat from the thighs and grafting skin around the shaft. However, this is not particularly successful with the results lasting for only a year.
- Given the inconsistent results offered by surgery, it is easy to see why the surgical option is a last resort for most men.
- Instead, these men are turning to traction devices that will help lengthen the penis without surgery.
- The easiest way to explain how this works is to think about a body builder lifting weights.
Over time, the body builder works with increasingly heavier weights in order to enlarge and strengthen his muscles. In doing so, tiny tears occur within the muscles triggering cell duplication in order to repair them. As the muscle heals it get bigger, firmer and stronger.
Now consider the fact that the penis is also a muscle. Traction devices are used to create that same process in order to enlarge the penis over time.
Within 3 or more months of using such a device, lasting increases in length can be seen.
