Are there any options for natural male enhancement?
Do vacuum pumps increase size?
The vacuum pump is often advertised as a method of quickly and permanently increasing the size of your penis. However, this product is a false claim. The vacuum pump is a treatment for erectile dysfunction. While it can help you achieve and maintain an erection, it has no lasting effect on the size of your penis.
There are also various stretching techniques, such as "jelqing", which involves repeatedly pulling on the flaccid penis in order to increase the size when erect. These techniques do not work and there is no scientific explanation why they could possibly work.
Using penile extenders involves hanging a weight off the penis for hours at a time, which doesn't increase size. To the contrary, this can cause tissue damage and there have been reports of it causing Peyronie's disease (curving of the penis). Rather than resulting in enlargement, using penile extenders could cause injury and have a negative effect on your ability to get an erection.
There are also traction devices which have been observed to cause small increases in length (1-2 cm overall) in some men. However, these devices are highly impractical, as they need to be worn for several hours every day in order to have an effect. You should consult a doctor before experimenting with any device to enlarge your penis, as there is a risk of side effects and injury if you don’t use it correctly. Evidence that using a traction device works is still limited.
How weight loss can help
Often, men who find that their penis looks small to them notice that they perceive their penis as larger when they lose weight. If you are overweight, losing weight around the abdominal area may reveal more of the shaft and cause your penis to appear larger in relation to your body.
