    Hi I'm new here. I really struggle with depression lately because for 6 years my penis has been shrunk 1.5 inches from its length when I was a teen. I don't
    masturbate at all anymore now that I have a gf. I constantly research online and believe this is permanent because I haven't gotten morning wood in years either. I'm so depressed I just want my
    regular penis back and what I did in my early teen years was absolutely not worth it now at 21. Hoping u can provide insight and Imk if I can fix this if anyone has been through anything similar.

    Hello there. I am sorry to hear your story.

    If you can, I suggest stopping having sex with your gf and go for hard mode until you recover (preferably after marriage, so you have healthy sperms for reproduction). You may need to talk to her and see if she's okay with it. Also, try adopting a healthy lifestyle, this would speed up your recovery. I hope you will get well soon!

    The lack of morning wood makes me wonder if you have low testosterone levels. Contrary to popular perception, you can not tell who is low based on appearances. I know a guy who is a tall bodybuilder in his 30s with clinical low levels, but you would never guess it. You could get your levels checked.

    OMG, really boys?

    Masturbation has absolutely nothing, nada, zero, zilch, to do with the size of one's penis. Know what does? Genetics!

    The only effect testosterone has is in development stage during puberty, and even then it has little to do with penis size. Go ahead and get your damned testosterone checked. Be sure to tell your urologist you jerk off all the time, and see what kind of amusing response you get out of him. The point is, it's a waste of time and money for both of you.

    Oh, and if you do decide to abstain from having sex with her for a period of time, make sure you back it up with real hard scientific data...something you're not going to get in here obviously.

    Stop being so preoccupied with the size of your junk. We don't care anyway. Congrats on not masturbating anymore BTW. Well done.

    The OP states that he is 21 years old and that he "haven't gotten morning wood in years." This would mean that he was not getting normal involuntary erections during his years of puberty development. If he was not so young then I would not say anything. We are talking about a lack of erectile activity during puberty.

    That makes the correlation between "morning wood" and "sex" when there isn't one. Neither has anything to do with the other.

    OP never stated that they could not have sex. They did say that they are not getting "morning wood"

    This is not 100% true. Too much masturbation will shrink their penis. I had been married 10 years when I looked at my husband and said” it really looks like your penis has shrunk, it looks so much smaller “ to which he replied” that’s what I thought, but I thought I was imagining it”. We both chalked it up to an illusion because he had gained 10 pounds so we thought it only looked smaller, because you know a penis can’t shrink right? Except that one year into recovery not only did his penis get larger, it changed to a healthier color! His penis is much larger when he isn’t masturbating, it’s softer to my touch, and the color is completely different and it looks so much healthier. Just like pied, some people will experience a change in size and some people may not. Not all addicts get pied. My husband also had a change in his fingernails. They have always been deformed and disgusting . Doctors kept sending him to specialist.. no one knew what was wrong. One year into recovery I noticed they were looking so much better, now 3.5 years later they are perfect. Told my csat ( because this looks, sounds, and feels crazy) and she said they are actually trying to study this! That my husband is not the only one who experienced it. And no, he didn’t change his diet, lol and he’s always worked out. My husband also never had chest hair-guess what? He’s got a lot of chest hair now. I mean he’s 54! Never had any.His voice got deeper ( and sexier), his jaw line much more masculine. Since I’ve been with him 35 years, 32 of which he was an addict, I can see the physical changes.

    The shrinkage that you are experiencing is a direct result of you not getting morning wood/nocturnal wood. So you need to figure out why you aren't getting MW/NW, it could be because of PMO(most likely) or maybe there is another reason like low T or prescription medications.

    What you need to do is completely abstain from PMO/MO for at least 4-6 months and once you start to get major/raging MW/NW you will start to see your size get back to normal. It will also help if you eat healthy and naturally increase your T levels through exercise and supplementation.

    One other thing, if you are on any prescriptions for depression that might effect your ability to get MW/NW, so if applicable you might want to talk to your doctor about that.

    Isn’t telling your husband that his penis has shrunk kind of like him saying Jesus babe you look really fat at the moment!
    Perhaps I’m too sensitive, I’m glad he’s packing again though and it probably gave him a kick up the ass to stop playing with it:) Weirdly I do notice if I’ve over done it masturbating or too much sex it will turtle up. It also takes much more stimulation to get fully engorged and it’s full potential when low on sperm and testosterone. Blood vessels must retract and yea I will get less girthy and my flaccid size will be tight along with my balls. I wouldnt say it’s permanent and masterbation as a teenager will have damaged it. But I would say having time off porn and emptying regularly makes it a more full and me more revved up to get a stonk on. It’s more fun going into the mission fully loaded anyway.

    I didn’t tell him it had shrunk, I said it looked like it had, because it looked shockingly smaller . I’d equate that to him commenting that my breast looked smaller after nursing the kids- because they were! Idk, I guess you could equate it to him saying I look fat lol. And no it didn’t give him a kick up his ass. He had no idea that pmo was an addiction or could cause anything. It was another 17 years before he learned otherwise and started recovery.

    “I just want my regular penis back and what I did in my early teen years was absolutely not worth it now at 21.” What did you do in your teen years that wasn’t worth it? Did you try to lengthen your penis? I think you should see a urologist.
     
  14. Mine is 4 1/2 inches when fully erect and sometimes it’s so small when flaccid that it just sticks straight out, maybe 3/4 of an inch. This can be really awkward at work when I realize that my flaccid penis is poking out a little bulge in my pants - in a very unflattering way! :oops:

    My solution has been to accept that I have a small penis. On the up side, by not fapping sometimes my flaccid penis looks to be almost a decent size and, get this, my balls are so full that my nut sack often hangs down a good inch or so further than my penis.

    So when he stopped pmo his size increased significantly? I notice this myself after 2 weeks of retention, but being single don’t feel I can go for ever never cumming. I’m told masterbation is totally healthy from a psychologist and I just do it to fantasy on occasion in between escorts I need to quit too. It’s turtled up this week after doing this and it’s annoying, it goes skinny flaccid. I wasn’t sure if this is all subconscious because I feel guilty/bad for playing with it. After sex it’s usually more relaxed and can hang nice and full but if I MO it always shrivels up. What are the patterns you and him noticed with pmo and size? Thanks

    No I just MO 3-4 times a day and it started losing blood flow and getting smaller but I didn’t stop even when I lost morning wood. I was 15 and didn’t know what I know now and it sucks.

    Something else caused your penis to shrink but it had absolutely nothing to do with jerking off a lot. As a teenager I jerked off 3 to 5 times a day every day and was having sex several days/week. Several friends wanked 3-5x/day also (an all-boys boarding school) and NO shrinkage. All through my 20s I had sex 5 days/week, often more than 1 partner AND I jerked off. No one had shrinkage.

    Please talk to your urologist.
     
  18. Sex is different from jerking off. And it has a different effect on testosterone levels which absolutely affects penis size.
    I have a small penis and have had several (female :eek:) doctors confirm that I have low testosterone and one of the things they do is check penis size (because there’s a correlation).
