Is it really possible to enlarge your penis?
To answer this question we need to look at what actually happens during an erection.
When the penis is erect, the spongy chambers that run along the inside of the penis (the Corpora Cavernosa) fill with blood, increasing the length, girth and rigidity of the member.
The amount of blood the Corpora Cavernosa can hold directly impacts the size and hardness of the penis when aroused. Suffice to say, the more the blood it can hold, the bigger the penis will get!
Successful enlargement can depend on two things – increasing blood flow to the area, and if possible, increasing the size of the chambers and surrounding penile tissue. This is commonly achieved using a combination of supplements and strengthening devices.
Penis Enlargement Pills
Q. How do penis enlargement pills work?
A. The main function here is to encourage penile tissues to regenerate as well as increasing the blood flow into the corpora cavernosa (the spongy chambers which run along the inside of the penis). Inadequate blood flow in this region can cause shorter erections, and in some cases, the inability to achieve a full erection. A quality supplement should strengthen, as well as build and support the tissues that are necessary for the enlargement of the penis.
Q. How effective are Penis enlargement pills?
A. There are so many enlargement pills available on the market but not all of them are known to be effective. It really is a case of buyer beware, making sure that whatever you are buying has effective ingredients which can actually help. One of the best ingredients is pomegranate extract which has been dubbed “natures viagra”.

Devices Used for Penis Enlargement
Q. Which devices enlarge the penis and how do they work?
A. Also called penis extenders, these are mechanical devices which exert traction or simply a stretching force to the penis that lengthens and enlarges the penis permanently.
These devices break down penile tissues as well as cells in the tissue of the penis, triggering cellular repair, multiplication and growth. This exact method is commonly used by doctors for treatment of stunted limb growth and pyronies disease.
Although this sounds a rather crude way of making the penis larger, there are numerous clinical studies which shows the procedure is in fact effective. So much so, that a select few extenders – such as the best selling SizeGenetics, have been classified as a Type-1 medical device.
Q. Can a curved penis be rectified?
A. A curved penis can be fixed through penis stretchers and penis enlargement exercises. The curve is usually caused as a result of the penis being tighter on one side, but through stretching, this curve gets straightened out.
Penis Enlargement Patches
Q. What are penis enlargement patches?
A. Though this is a slightly new product on the market, it promises to give similar results to a pill. Patches basically deliver their ingredients directly to the penis and claim to improve blood flow and strengthen an erection. However, the technology is still in its infancy and customer feedback has not been as encouraging as first hoped. Maybe one to watch in the coming years!
What can I expect?
How much longer can my penis get?
A. The number of inches one gains varies from individual to individual. Those who do combine a quality supplement with a device (used both correctly and regularly) can add between two to three inches, reports of any more than that are rare.
Can older people enlarge their penis too?
Why not? As a matter of fact, there is a theory that seems to suggest that it’s much easier to gain more length and girth in older folks than the other way round. The main theory behind this is that it’s much easier to get the penis to stretch!
