What Is Shrinkage Dysfunction?

By Smarty More Blogs by This Author

Shrinkage Dysfunction refers to an unexpected decrease in penis size. There are several regular causes, such as embarrassment, surprise, and dissatisfaction.

The Average Size

The average human penis size is between five and six inches, with a circumference of four and a half inches. In spite of this, a vast amount of men (a recent study reported less than sixty percent) aren't happy with the size of their penis and wish for something bigger. The last thing a man wants is to lose any of the size he already has.

The Causes

Shrinkage can be caused by many things, some of which are unavoidable. For example, when the body is exposed to excessively low temperatures, it moves to protect its most delicate parts. This is known as the cremasteric reflex. Unfortunately, this same reflex may also occur when experiencing nervousness or anxiety, such as during intercourse with a new partner, or when worried about pleasing a partner. In times of anxiety, it can also be next to impossible for a man to sustain or even achieve an erection. Shrinkage can also be caused by a lack of testosterone, making it more difficult for a man to develop a full erection. This comes into play as a man ages, when the testosterone levels naturally begin to decrease. Alcohol can also have a negative effect on the penis. It is more difficult to hold or reach an erection after alcohol consumption, and prolonged alcohol use can cause shrinking in the penis. The same is also true of tobacco, poor diet, and anabolic steroids. 50% of men with diabetes reported shrinkage dysfunction.

How can I avoid shrinkage?

Your sexual health is a reflection of your overall health. To experience pristine sexual performance, it's important to get your body in working order. Pay special attention to your diet, and consume plenty of anti-oxidants (such as cultivated blueberries, strawberries, and russet potatoes ) to help your blood flow easier. Also, a regular exercise regimen will help your stay strong while assisting blood flow to certain special regions of your body and helping to increase your stamina. Remember, a great sex life revolves around good health.
