Erection in older children is a normal physiological state. There should be no reason to panic. They talk to the boy, talking about all the intricacies of growing up. Mothers are advised not to discuss intimate matters with their child. This leads to embarrassment on both sides and the development of psychological trauma in the child. The first signs of arousal are not associated with puberty, their appearance can be the norm or the result of developed pathologies.
The first signs of puberty
At what age does the penis rise in boys, not all parents, especially mothers, know. Normally, the process begins at 11-12 years old, but there are small deviations.
The first thing a teenager notices is an enlarged penis.
- uncontrolled erections;
- nocturnal emissions;
- sexual attraction for girls;
- erotic dreams and other signs.
Adulthood lasts about 5 years. Testosterone, a male hormone, enters the bloodstream, which leads to a change in a teenager's character and appearance. The change in behavior is not surprising. Hormonal changes often make a young person aggressive and short-tempered.
The final formation of the reproductive system occurs at the age of 18, although many boys have their first sexual intercourse much earlier. On average, this occurs between the ages of 13 and 16.
Teen erections lead to the desire to experience the first pleasure in life, so most teenagers masturbate.
After capturing a child in an obscene activity, parents are confused: they read morality, ridicule the child. You can't do this, you can ruin the relationship and cause serious damage to the guy's psyche.
How does a young person change?
Moms and dads often wonder why a child's behavior is changing, and often not for the better. The boy makes scandals, runs away from home, closes in on himself.
Parents suspect that their child uses drugs, links with bad company. Regular interrogation does not lead to good relationships and angers the growing child even more.
You can recognize grow from hair growth:
- on the chest and face;
- in the genital area.
During the hormonal adjustment period, the voice becomes coarse and the sexual organ grows.
Of course, the boy will not show his mother's penis, adult males will be able to notice such changes.
In the process of growth, sperm begins to accumulate in the testicles. It can already lead to conception. Before this opportunity presents itself, the boy must be aware of the intimate nuances and consequences of an unwanted pregnancy.
A grown man, preferably a father, should update the young man. If this is not possible, the boy studies the information himself - in books, magazines, the Internet.
You have to be careful with the latter. A growing boy will definitely want to watch an intimate video. The textures of the images are different. By focusing on a particular video, a boy can radically change his views on adult life.
Erection in teenagers is often accompanied by erotic dreams. A sufficient amount of sperm accumulates in the testicles, comes out. The first wet dream scares the boys. They are afraid of parental criticism, they feel guilty about the dirty sheet.
Parents note that the child himself removed the bedding and loaded it into the washing machine. Neither mother nor father should ask unnecessary questions, putting the boy in an awkward position. If an intimate topic hasn't been opened yet, it's time for the father to take a moment to explain the situation. It is important to know at what age kids get up in order not to miss important changes.
Young people often do not remember their dreams and do not understand why ejaculation occurred. Some consider it pathological.
Nocturnal emissions in boys are a normal physiological state in which sexual tension is relieved. The accumulated excess sperm leads to discomfort. While a man is not yet sexually active, his body empties his testicles.
This happens in adulthood, but unlike a teenager, an adult understands what is happening to him and does not feel embarrassed.
This is fraught with:
- the emergence of a sense of guilt in a teenager;
- psychological distress;
- loss of prestige;
- hostile relationship.
The young man will certainly appreciate the lack of interest in the appearance of erections and involuntary ejaculation.
Advice for moms and dads
You have to deal with growing up. This is a natural process that had to begin. During this difficult period, one must be kind and friendly, because one wrong word can ruin relations with blood for a long time.
Moms and dads shouldn't sentence their child for:
- uncontrolled erection and ejaculation;
- viewing of intimate magazines;
- mood swings.
Finding a teen masturbating, you need to remain silent and pretend that nothing has happened, giving the child the opportunity to clean up himself. Also, you don't have to focus on yourself. Doctors do not have a single point of view on this matter. Some consider emptying the testicles physiologically normal, others say it is immoral and unacceptable.
Parents will not be able to influence this process, if a teenager wants to do it, she will always find an opportunity to retire.
The concepts of morality should be inculcated from early childhood; during the period of growth, this will be perceived as an invasion of personal space.
Erection at an early age
The signs of growth in boys up to 6-8 years old confuse parents. Sometimes they appear in children of the first year of life. Often you don't have to worry. It happens.
Harmless reasons include:
- tight underwear or an uncomfortable diaper;
- overflow of the bladder;
- mechanical impact.
- Congenital malformations of the genitourinary system.
- Inflammatory processes in the intestines, bladder, testicles.
- Worm infestations.
- CNS disorders.
- Circulatory problems.
- Infection of the foreskin and others.
Often the diagnosis is made during the pediatrician's initial examination. Less often, it is necessary to conduct an ultrasound of the genitourinary system, pass smears, blood tests, and so on.
Treatment is selected based on test results. Most often, the child needs antibiotics, physiotherapy and other things.
It is forbidden to act alone. Hot and cold packs can severely harm a baby, and taking medication will distort clinical signs and prevent quick diagnosis.
"Up to what age does the penis grow? " - this question is asked by many parents, worried if everything is in order with the health of their children. Similar questions arise in adult men who are dissatisfied with the size of their penis: they hope that growth does not stop until old age, the main thing is to follow some rules.
How is the situation in reality: up to what age does the penis grow, why does the organ stop growing, what determines the size and how to enlarge the penis in an adult man? We will now give the answers to these questions.
Stages of development in children
- Stage one, intrauterine. The penis and scrotum are formed in the fetus by the sixteenth week, at this point it is already possible to determine the sex of the unborn child.
- Phase two, prepubertal. Before the onset of puberty, the boy's genitals are underdeveloped (infantile, that is, children). In a newborn, the penis measures only 1. 5-2. 5 cm, the head of the penis is not visible, the foreskin is narrowed (children's phimosis). The further growth of the penis is proportional to the growth of the boy.
- Stage three, puberty. With the onset of puberty (for different men it occurs in different ways - at 12-15 years old), the growth of the genital organs becomes more intense. There is an increase in the testicles, there is a growth of the penis. Every three years, the organ adds an average of 3-4 cm. Growth is accompanied by other signs of puberty: an Adam's apple forms, a voice breaks, hair appears on the face and body.
Intense penis enlargement is evident in the first three years (up to about 15-18 years). In addition, the growth of the penis slows down (the maximum penis increases by 1 cm per year) and, as a rule, at the age of 19-21 the penis reaches its maximum thickness and length.
If a teenager is unwell
What if a young man who has entered puberty does not have the expected penis growth? There is no need to panic, the fact is that everyone changes at different times. If the symptoms of maturation do not manifest at the age of 15-16 and the genitals still remain in a childish state, this is already a serious cause for concern: hormonal disorders can be a possible cause of the lack of proper penis growth .
Another question: which sizes are considered normal? In adolescence, you shouldn't panic about size - growth can be slow at first, then in a year the penis can stretch 5-6 cm at a time. The following is considered to be the minimum length of the penis in children and adolescents:
- age 11 years - 4-6 cm (with a boy's height of 142-148 cm);
- age 14 years - 6–9 cm (with a boy's height of 158–168 cm);
- age 16 years - 7–9 cm (with a boy's height of 165–172 cm);
- age 20 years - 9. 5-12 cm (with a height of 174 cm).
An erect penis of a sexually mature man, the size of which reaches 9 cm or more, is considered to be medically normal. With a size of 3–9 cm, there is a small penis. Less than 3 cm is an anatomical abnormality called a micropenis.
What affects the length
What determines the size of a man's penis? First of all, genetics. The presence of various diseases during the development of the boy's body also has a great influence. If in childhood a man had complicated diseases of the reproductive or endocrine system, then with a high probability this will adversely affect the genitals. So, for example, with a 60% testosterone deficiency, there is a decrease in the intensity of penis growth.
Another important factor in penis development is lifestyle. For example, nutrition can affect: for the normal construction of the body, a sufficient amount of building material is required. Among the products for a developing boy's body, nuts (walnuts, almonds, pistachios), herbs (parsley, dill, cumin), garlic, asparagus, pomegranate, figs, dairy products, beef are especially useful.
Parents should carefully monitor that their child does not develop bad habits: if a teenager starts drinking alcohol and smoking before the completion of puberty, a slowdown in the development of his body is guaranteed.
And what about adults?
Natural penis growth in men after puberty (18-21 years) does not occur. The only thing is that some have a delay in the development of the reproductive system and the maturation can end as early as 25 years: such cases are rare, but they still occur. If there are no delays, after the age of twenty, it is not worth counting on the fact that the penis will grow a little more.
True, there are artificial penis enlargement methods for men who can't come to terms with the length of their dignity. It is necessary to resort to these measures in situations of complete desperation, after all, each of these methods has its contraindications and side effects.
Among the most common methods of penis enlargement of an adult male, it is worth noting:
- Hormonal drugs for penis growth (so-called growth hormones).
- The use of extenders (an orthopedic instrument for soft tissue elongation). Gives 1-2 cm rise.
- Implant installation in the intracavernous space of the penis.
- Ligamentotomy is a surgical enlargement of the penis by reducing the perineum.
- vacuum increase. The penis is inserted into the cylinder, from which air is removed from the other end by suction.
- Saline injections. The change in size is observed only for a couple of months, then the saline solution gradually resolves
It is worth noting that the listed procedures are quite unpleasant, since the intimate zone of a man is very sensitive. All these methods are recommended not for cosmetic purposes, but when there are medical indications for penis enlargement (for example, in the case of a micropenis, when a normal sex life is not possible).
If you still want to increase virility, you can try special sprays and ointments, the composition of which produces an irritating effect. As a result of the increased blood flow and subsequent swelling, the penis visually appears to be a couple of centimeters larger. The effect achieved by such funds is short-term, usually a couple of hours.
