Erection in older children is a normal physiological state. There should be no reason to panic. They talk to the boy, talking about all the ins and outs of growing up. Mothers are not recommended to discuss intimate matters with their child. This leads to embarrassment on both sides and the development of psychological trauma in the child. The first signs of arousal are not associated with puberty, their appearance may be the norm or the result of developed pathologies.
The first signs of puberty
At what age the penis increases in boys, not all fathers, especially mothers, know. Usually, the process starts at 11-12 years old, but there are small deviations.
The first thing a teenager notices is an enlarged penis.
- uncontrolled erections;
- nocturnal emissions;
- sexual attraction to girls;
- erotic dreams and other signs.
Adulthood lasts about 5 years. Testosterone, a male hormone, enters the bloodstream, which leads to a change in a teenager's character and appearance. The change in behavior is not surprising. Hormonal changes often make a young person aggressive and irascible.
The final formation of the reproductive system occurs at 18 years of age, although many boys have their first sexual intercourse much earlier. On average, this occurs at 13-16 years of age.
Teenage erections lead to the desire to experience life's first pleasure, so most teenagers masturbate.
Having caught a child in an obscene activity, parents are confused - they read morality, ridicule the child. You can't do that, you can ruin the relationship and cause serious damage to the guy's psyche.
How does a young person change?
Moms and Dads often wonder why a child's behavior is changing, and often not for the better. The guy makes scandals, runs away from home, shuts himself up.
Parents suspect that the child is a drug user, ties to bad company. Regular interrogation does not lead to good relationships and further irritates the growing child.
You can recognize growth by hair growth:
- on the chest and face;
- in the genital area.
During the period of hormonal adjustment, the voice deepens and the sexual organ grows.
Naturally, the boy will not show his mother's penis; adult males may notice such changes.
In the process of growth, sperm starts to accumulate in the testes. It can already lead to conception. Before such an opportunity arises, the boy must be aware of the intimate nuances and consequences of an unwanted pregnancy.
An adult male, preferably a father, should update the young man. If this is not possible, the guy studies the information on his own - in books, magazines, on the Internet.
You have to be careful with the last one. A growing guy will definitely want to watch an intimate video. The frames of the photos are different. By focusing on a specific video, a guy can radically change his views on adulthood.
Erection in teenagers is often accompanied by erotic dreams. A sufficient amount of sperm accumulates in the testicles, comes out. The first wet dream scares guys. They are afraid of criticism from their parents, they feel guilty about the dirty sheet.
Parents notice that the son himself has removed the bedding and put it in the washing machine. Neither mom nor dad should ask unnecessary questions, putting the guy in an uncomfortable position. If an intimate topic hasn't been opened up yet, it's time for the parent to take a moment to explain the situation. It is important to know at what age boys get up so as not to miss important changes.
Young men often do not remember their dreams and do not understand why ejaculation occurred. Some consider it pathological.
Nocturnal emissions in boys are a normal physiological state in which sexual tension is relieved. Excess accumulated sperm leads to discomfort. While a man is not yet sexually active, the body itself empties the testicles.
This happens in adulthood, but unlike a teenager, an adult understands what is happening to them and doesn't feel ashamed.
This is full of:
- the emergence of a feeling of guilt in an adolescent;
- psychological discomfort;
- loss of prestige;
- hostile relationship.
The young man will certainly appreciate the lack of interest in the appearance of erections and involuntary ejaculation.
Advice for moms and dads
You have to accept the fact that you grow up. This is a natural process that had to begin. During this difficult period, tact and friendship must be exercised, because a wrong word can spoil blood relations for a long time.
Mothers and fathers should not condemn their child for:
- uncontrolled erection and ejaculation;
- see intimate magazines;
- mood swings.
Finding a teenager masturbating, you need to be silent and pretend that nothing happened, giving the child the opportunity to clean up after himself. You also don't have to focus on yourself. Doctors do not have a single point of view on this matter. Some consider emptying the testicles to be normal from a physiological point of view, others say it is immoral and unacceptable.
Parents will not be able to influence this process, if a teenager wants to do this, he will always find an opportunity to retire.
The concepts of morality must be inculcated from early childhood; during the period of growth, this will be perceived as an invasion of personal space.
Erection at an early age
Signs of growth in 6-8 year olds confuse parents. Sometimes they appear in children of the first year of life. Often you don't have to worry. That happens.
Harmless reasons include:
- tight underwear or an uncomfortable diaper;
- bladder overflow;
- mechanical impact.
- Congenital malformations of the genitourinary system.
- Inflammatory processes in the intestines, bladder, testes.
- Worm infestations.
- CNS disorders.
- Circulatory problems.
- Foreskin infection and others.
The diagnosis is often made during the pediatrician's initial examination. Less often, it is necessary to perform an ultrasound of the genitourinary system, pass smears, blood tests, and so on.
Treatment is selected according to test results. Most of the time, the baby needs antibiotics, physical therapy and other things.
Acting alone is prohibited. Heat and cold compresses can seriously harm a child, and taking medication will distort clinical signs and prevent a quick diagnosis.
"To what age does the penis grow? "- this question is asked by many parents, who are concerned about whether everything is in order with the health of their children. Similar questions arise in adult men who are dissatisfied with the size of the penis - they hope that growth does not stop until old age, the main thing is to follow certain rules.
How is the situation in reality: at what age does the penis grow, why does the organ stop growing, what determines the size and how to increase the penis in an adult man? We will now give the answers to these questions.
Stages of child development
- Stage one, intrauterine. The penis and scrotum are formed in the fetus around the 16th week, at which point it is already possible to determine the sex of the unborn child.
- Stage two, prepubertal. Before the onset of puberty, the boy's genitals are underdeveloped (infantile, that is, children's). In a child, the penis is only 1. 5-2. 5 cm, the head of the penis is not visible, the foreskin is narrow (infantile phimosis). The additional growth of the penis is proportional to the growth of the boy.
- Stage three, puberty. With the onset of puberty (for different men it occurs in different ways - at 12-15 years old), the growth of Organs genitals becomes more intense. There is an increase in the testicles, there is an increase in the penis. Every three years, the organ adds an average of 3-4 cm. Growth is accompanied by other signs of puberty - an Adam's apple is formed, a voice fails, hair appears on the face and body.
Intensive penis enlargement is noticeable in the first three years (up to about 15-18 years). In addition, the growth of the penis slows down (the maximum penis increases by 1 cm per year), and, as a rule, by the age of 19-21 the penis reaches its maximum thickness and length.
If a teenager is not doing well
What if a young man who has just started puberty doesn't have the expected penis growth? There is no need to panic, the fact is that everyone changes at different times. If the maturation symptoms do not occur by the age of 15-16 and the genitals still remain in an infantile state, this is already a serious cause for concern - hormonal disturbances could be a possible reason for the lack of adequate growth of the penis.
Another question - what sizes are considered normal? As a teenager, you shouldn't panic about size - growth can be slow at first, and in a year, the penis can stretch 5-6 cm in one go. The following is considered the minimum length of the penis in children and adolescents:
- age 11 years - 4-6 cm (with a height of a boy 142-148 cm);
- age 14 years - 6–9 cm (with a boy's height of 158–168 cm);
- age 16 years - 7–9 cm (with a boy's height of 165–172 cm);
- age 20 years - 9. 5-12 cm (with a height of 174 cm).
An erect penis of a sexually mature man whose size reaches 9 cm or more is considered normal from a medical point of view. With sizes from 3 to 9 cm, there is a small penis. Less than 3 cm is an anatomical anomaly called micropenis.
What affects length
What determines the size of a man's penis? First, genetics. The presence of various diseases during the development of the boy's body also has a great influence. If in childhood a man had complicated diseases of the reproductive or endocrine system, then with a high probability this will negatively affect the genitals. So, for example, with a 60% testosterone deficiency, there is a decrease in the intensity of penis growth.
Another important factor in penile development is lifestyle. For example, nutrition can influence - for the normal construction of the body, a sufficient amount of building material is needed. Among the products for a developing boy's body, nuts (walnuts, almonds, pistachios), herbs (parsley, dill, cumin), garlic, asparagus, pomegranate, figs, dairy products, beef are especially useful.
Parents should carefully monitor that their child does not develop bad habits: if a teenager starts drinking alcohol and smoking before puberty, a slowdown in the development of his body is guaranteed.
And the adults?
Natural growth of the penis in men after puberty (18-21 years) does not occur. The only thing is that some have a delay in the development of the reproductive system and maturation can end as early as 25 years old - these cases are rare, but they still happen. If there are no delays, after the age of twenty, it is not worth counting on the fact that the penis will grow a little more.
It is true that there are artificial methods of penis enlargement for men who cannot accept the length of their dignity. It is necessary to resort to these measures in situations of complete despair, after all, each of these methods has its own contraindications and side effects.
Of the most common methods for enlarging the penis of an adult man, it is worth noting:
- Hormonal drugs for penis growth (so-called growth hormones).
- The use of extenders (an orthopedic tool for stretching soft tissue). It gives an increase of 1-2 cm.
- Installation of the implant in the intracavernous space of the penis.
- Ligamentotomy is a surgical enlargement of the penis by reducing the perineum.
- vacuum increase. The penis is inserted into the cylinder, from which air is drawn from the other end by means of suction.
- Saline injections. The change in size is only observed for a few months, then the saline solution gradually resolves
It is worth noting that the listed procedures are quite unpleasant, since the intimate zone of a man is very sensitive. All these methods are recommended not for cosmetic purposes, but when there are medical indications for penis enlargement (for example, in the case of a micropenis, when a normal sex life is not possible).
If you still want to increase manhood, you can try special sprays and ointments, the composition of which produces an irritating effect. As a result of the increased blood flow and the resulting swelling, the penis visually appears to be a few centimeters larger. The effect obtained with these funds is short-term - usually a few hours.
