Dr. David :

This is Dr. David

Dr. David :

your penis most likely grew in size when you went through puberty at age 15 or 16 when you developed pubic hair and under arm hair and a growth spurt.

Dr. David :

did you have problems with puberty growth?

Dr. David :

that is when testosterone levels rise in boys and boys turn into men.

Dr. David :

you can always see a doctor and get your blood levels checked for testosterone.

Dr. David :

but most likely your penis length is normal.

Dr. David :

hello?

Dr. David :

do you have questions?

JACUSTOMER-gth9le51- :

No didn't have any problem during puberty

Dr. David :

that is good.

Dr. David :

what is the length of your penis?

JACUSTOMER-gth9le51- :

No don't think it is cause it can be very small at times like I was still going through purberty it's changes size da whole time

Dr. David :

yes, it is normal for the penis to change size from time to time.

Dr. David :

when you are cold or nervous, you can have shrinkage of your penis and peripheral blood vessels

Dr. David :

this is normal.

JACUSTOMER-gth9le51- :

Small it's changes sizes the whole time

Dr. David :

when you are more relaxed, you can have more blood flow to your penis and it can become larger.

Dr. David :

so the penis doesn't stay the same size all the time.

JACUSTOMER-gth9le51- :

No cause I'm relaxed now and it's tiny

Dr. David :

well, that can be its normal size.

Dr. David :

are you having problems urinating or having an erection?

JACUSTOMER-gth9le51- :

No never does keeps changing and sometime I feel my balls haven't drop as well and I'm quiet embrassed about it

Dr. David :

are you willing to see a doctor about it?

JACUSTOMER-gth9le51- :

No to both of those

Dr. David :

are you willing to see a doctor about these concerns?

JACUSTOMER-gth9le51- :

Haha I'm really embrassed about it

Dr. David :

you shouldn't be embarassed about it.

JACUSTOMER-gth9le51- :

Would u recommend getting it checked out

JACUSTOMER-gth9le51- :

Just the way I feel about it

Dr. David :

yes, you should get it checked out

Dr. David :

and see a doctor about it

Dr. David :

and let your doctor know how you feel about it

Dr. David :

you might be more reassured when the doctor examines the area and says everything is normal.

Dr. David :

and also your thyroid hormone levels

Dr. David :

and B12 levels and vitamin D levels.

Dr. David :

low levels of any of these can cause lack of energy.
