What Makes Your Penis Smaller?

What Makes Your Penis Smaller?

The amount of testosterone in the body does and will effect your penis and its function. Hormonal production is tied to your genetics. Consequently, your predetermined genetics correlates to your individual testosterone production. This varies from person to person, resulting in different shapes and lengths of penis. But what makes your penis smaller?

Loss of Penile Length

  • The main and most common reason for penis shrinkage is radical prostatectomy. About 70% of men who undergo prostate removal see a shrinkage in penis size.
  • Gaining weight not only shrinks your penis size to the eye (excess skin can cover significant areas), but radically reduces blood flow to the penis. Without proper blood flow, men have difficulty achieving a stiff erection.
  • Those men who have abnormal curvatures of the penis might suffer from Peyronies disease. Peyronies Disease can cause shortening and loss of girth in the penis for two reasons: one is scars and plaque, and the second is the corrective surgery.
  • Due to the decline of testosterone levels caused by aging, atrophy can reduce your sexual activity and frequency of erections. The less you get erect, the smaller your penis can contract. This happens gradually over time, but for many men can be a cause of shrinkage.
