Even though most women acknowledge that penis size is not usually one of the most important attributes they look for in a man, this topic continues to be an obsession for many men - and not just those whose penis size might be considered on the smaller side of things. Many men with perfectly decent-sized members still desire more, either in length, girth or both. It’s well known that skill and penis health are more important in practical terms, of course; but something in the makeup of many men craves a physical sign that they are exceptionally virile. And that often leads to attempts, such as raising testosterone levels, in a quest to achieve a larger penis size.

But does testosterone actually make a guy’s penis bigger? An internet search will turn up articles - some from respected newspapers - about men who did use testosterone to achieve penile growth. But these articles come with a catch.


Most of the time, reports that claim something along the lines of a man doubling his penis size by using testosterone are misleading. They’re not necessarily false - often the man in question has indeed seen his penis become larger. But they give the false hope that any man who wants a bigger package can get it just by raising his T levels.

Typically, reports of a man’s penis enlarging due to testosterone involve a case in which the person in question suffered from a condition known as hypogonadism, which occurred early in life. Hypogonadism basically is a deficiency of testosterone. When it occurs before or during puberty, it has the effect of diminishing a man’s sexual development. Without sufficient testosterone, a boy will see little or no development in terms of growth of facial and pubic hair, lowering of the voice, and growth of the testes and penis.

In extreme cases, a grown man may have a penis that is essentially the size of a pre-pubescent boy’s. In many cases, having testosterone supplementation over an extended period of time - sometimes months or years - will correct this. In such cases, a grown man may indeed have the size of his penis double, just as he would have if his testosterone had kicked in during puberty.

Typical men

However, there seems to be no real evidence that a man who has successfully gone through puberty with no hypogonadism-related issues would see an increase in penis size from testosterone therapy. Also, although some men do acquire hypogonadism post-puberty, the complications typically associated with it (low sex drive, erectile dysfunction, decrease in muscle and bone mass, etc.) do not typically have an impact on penis size. When prescribed by a knowledgeable physician, testosterone therapy can have an impact on these adult symptoms, but not on penis size.

Some men may want to experiment with testosterone therapy anyway, despite the lack of evidence for its effect on penis size. However, there is controversy concerning possible long-term effects of testosterone supplementation. Most physicians suggest using it under a doctor’s care to treat legitimate issues (such as erectile dysfunction) instead.

Whatever the testosterone levels and penis size, a man needs to be sure that his manhood is in its best possible state of health. Regular application of a top notch penis health crème (health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin) can help achieve that admirable goal. Definitely look for a crème that contains both L-arginine and L-carnitine. The former is an amino acid which plays a role in the development of nitric oxide; this in turn helps to keep penile blood vessels open and receptive to increased flow. The latter is a neuroprotective ingredient which protects against peripheral nerve damage and the subsequent loss of sensation that can result.
