The Penis Does Not Enlarge?
Doctor, I have a child, now I am 15 years old. The penis is only 7 cm in size, not enlarged, but has released sperm and the body is not fat, thin. Is this normal? Or is there a problem?
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Conditions where the penis size is smaller than normal, called the micropenis. Although this does not affect a person's ability to have children, this condition can affect a person's confidence in their partner. But before continuing, please first know how to determine the normal and abnormal penis.
The penis is normally measured when he has an erection. Indonesian penis normally when erect length between 11.5-16.5 cm, with measurements from the base of the penis, to the tip of the penis. When weak, the length is about 5-10 cm. In addition, the penis will experience growth during puberty, which starts from the age of 13-18 years, and usually stops at the age of 21 years. The so-called micropenis condition, is when the penis is less than 7.5 cm long when erect.
In the case of your child, there are two things that need to be observed. The first is whether you measure your child's penis when erect, or when not erect. If when not erect, then 7 cm is the normal length, and you don't need to worry.
Second, even if 7 cm is long when an erection, the process of penis growth will continue until he is 21 years old. So if the obstetrician who helped with the birth of your child first did not immediately see and say that your child has micropenis, chances are your child was born with a normal penis size, and will become normal with age. However, 15 years is a very young age to expect maximum penis growth, especially when compared to adults.
So indeed you do not need to worry too much, because even at the age of your child he would be embarrassed if you are too frontal in discussing about his genitals. All you have to say is that if his condition still persists for the next few years, he should check with the doctor of Andrology. But once again if 7 cm is the condition of the penis when it is limp, it means there really is nothing to worry about at all. So, hopefully answering your question.
