Erection is a normal physiological condition in older children. There should be no reason to panic. They talk to the boy, they talk about all the subtleties of growing up. Mothers are not advised to discuss intimate matters with their son. This causes discomfort on both sides and psychological trauma to the child. Early signs of awakening are not associated with puberty, their appearance may be the result of normal or advanced pathologies.
The first signs of maturity
Not all parents, especially mothers, know the age at which boys develop genitals. Normally, the process begins at the age of 11-12, but there are small deviations.
The first thing that catches the attention of a teenager is an enlarged penis.
- uncontrolled erections;
- night emissions;
- sexual attraction to girls;
- erotic dreams and other symptoms.
Maturity lasts about 5 years. The male hormone testosterone enters the bloodstream, causing a change in the character and appearance of the adolescent. The change in behavior is not surprising. Hormonal changes often make a young person aggressive and irritable.
The last formation of the reproductive system occurs at the age of 18, although many boys have their first sexual intercourse earlier. On average, this happens at the age of 13-16.
Adolescents' erections cause them to want to enjoy life for the first time, which is why most teenagers masturbate.
By engaging a child in obscene activities, parents become confused - they read morals, make fun of the child. You can't do that, you can break up the relationship and seriously damage the boy's psyche.
How does a young person change?
Mothers and fathers often wonder why their child's behavior has changed and is often not for the better. The boy makes scandals, runs away from home, closes himself.
The parents suspect that their son is using drugs and having a bad company. Regular interrogation does not lead to a good relationship and makes the growing child even angrier.
You can recognize growth by hair growth:
- on the chest and face;
- in the genital area.
During hormonal regulation, the voice becomes rougher and the genitals grow.
Of course, the boy will not show his mother's penis, and adult men will be able to feel such changes.
During growth, sperm begin to accumulate in the testicles. It can already lead to conception. Before this opportunity arises, the boy should be aware of the intimate nuances and consequences of an unwanted pregnancy.
A mature man, preferably a father, must bring the young man to a modern state. If this is not possible, the boy learns the information himself - in books, magazines, on the Internet.
You have to be careful with the latter. A growing boy will definitely want to watch an intimate video. The plots of the pictures are different. By paying attention to a particular video, a boy can radically change his outlook on adult life.
In adolescents, erections are often accompanied by erotic dreams. Sufficient sperm accumulates in the testicles and comes out. The first age sleep scares boys. They are afraid of criticism from their parents and feel guilty for the dirty paper.
The parents see that their son has taken out the bedding and loaded it into the washing machine. Neither the mother nor the father should ask unnecessary questions, leaving the son in an awkward position. If an intimate subject has not yet been opened, it is time to take a moment to explain the father's situation. It is important to know the age at which boys are raised so as not to miss important changes.
Young men often do not remember their dreams and do not understand why ejaculation occurs. Some consider it pathological.
In boys, nocturnal emissions are a normal physiological condition in which sexual tension is relieved. Excessively accumulated sperm is a concern. Although the man is not yet sexually active, the testicles empty themselves.
This happens during adolescence, but unlike a teenager, adults understand what happened to him and are not ashamed.
It is full of the following:
- feeling of guilt in the teenager;
- psychological anxiety;
- loss of reputation;
- hostile attitude.
The young man will no doubt appreciate the lack of interest in the appearance of erections and forced ejaculation.
Tips for moms and dads
You have to come to terms with the fact of growing up. This is a natural process that must begin. In these difficult times, a person needs to be polite and kind, because one wrong word can ruin a relationship for a long time.
Mothers and fathers should not blame their sons for:
- uncontrolled erection and ejaculation;
- look at intimate magazines;
- mood swings.
Finding a teenager who masturbates, to remain silent and act as if nothing happened, it is necessary to give the child the opportunity to clean up after himself. And there is no need to pay attention to yourself. Doctors do not have a single view on this issue. Some consider testicular discharge to be physiologically normal, while others say it is immoral and unacceptable.
Parents will not be able to influence this process, and if the teenager wants to do so, he will always have the opportunity to retire.
Moral concepts must be instilled from early childhood, and in adulthood it will be perceived as an occupation of personal space.
Erection at an early age
Signs of growth in boys aged 6-8 years confuse parents. Sometimes they appear in children in the first year of life. You don't have to worry too much. It happens.
Harmless reasons include:
- tight underwear or uncomfortable diapers;
- bladder overflow;
- mechanical impact.
- Congenital defects of the genitourinary system.
- Inflammatory processes in the intestines, bladder, testicles.
- Worm invasions.
- Central nervous system disorders.
- Circulatory problems.
- Circumcision skin infection and others.
Often the diagnosis is made during the initial examination by a pediatrician. Less frequently, ultrasound of the genitourinary system, smears, blood tests, etc.
Treatment is selected based on test results. Often the baby needs antibiotics, physiotherapy and other things.
It is forbidden to move alone. Heat and cold compresses can cause serious harm to the child, and taking medication will distort the clinical signs and prevent a quick diagnosis.
"How old is the penis? " Is a question asked by many parents who are concerned about whether their son's health is all right. Similar questions arise in adult men who are dissatisfied with the size of their penis - they hope that growth will not stop until old age, the main thing is to follow certain rules.
In reality, what is the situation: at what age does the genitals grow, why does the body stop growing, what determines its size, and how to enlarge the penis in an adult man? We will now answer these questions.
Developmental stages in children
- The first stage, intrauterine. The penis and scrotum are formed in the fetus at 16 weeks, by which time it is possible to determine the sex of the unborn child.
- The second stage, prepubertal. Before the onset of puberty, the boy's genitals are not developed (baby, ie child). The size of the genitals in the baby is only 1, 5-2, 5 cm, the head of the genitals is not visible, the foreskin is narrowed (pediatric phimosis). The further growth of the penis is proportional to the growth of the boy.
- The third stage, puberty. With the onset of puberty (occurs in different ways for different men - at the age of 12-15 years), the growth of the genitals becomes more intensive. There is an enlargement of the testicles, there is an enlargement of the genitals. Every three years, the body adds an average of 3-4 cm. Growth is accompanied by other signs of puberty - Adam's apple appears, the voice is broken, hair appears on the face and body.
Intensive penis enlargement is noticeable in the first three years (up to about 15-18 years). In addition, penis growth slows down (maximum penis grows 1 cm per year) and, as a rule, the penis reaches its maximum thickness and length by the age of 19-21.
If the teen is not well
What if an adult does not have the expected growth of his genitals? No need to panic, the fact is that everyone changes at different times. If signs of maturation do not occur until the age of 15-16, and the genitals are still in a state of infancy, this is already a serious cause for concern - hormonal disorders can be a possible reason for the child's lack of proper growth. penis.
Another question - what dimensions are considered normal? During adolescence, you should not panic about the size - growth may be slow at first, and then after a year the penis may lengthen by 5-6 cm at a time. In children and adolescents, the minimum length of the penis is considered to be:
- age 11 years - 4-6 cm (boy height 142-148 cm);
- 14 years old - 6-9 cm (boy height 158-168 cm);
- age 16 years - 7-9 cm (boy height 165-172 cm);
- age 20 years - 9, 5-12 cm (height 174 cm).
It is medically normal for a sexually mature man measuring 9 cm or more to have an erect penis. There is something like a small penis with a size of 3-9 cm. Less than 3 cm is an anatomical anomaly called micropenis.
What affects the length
What determines the size of a man's penis? First of all, genetics. The presence of various diseases also has a great impact on the development of the boy's body. If a man has complex diseases of the reproductive or endocrine system in childhood, it is likely to adversely affect the genitals. Thus, for example, with a 60% testosterone deficiency, there is a decrease in the intensity of penis growth.
Another important factor in the development of the penis is lifestyle. For example, nutrition can have an effect - you need enough building materials to build a normal body. Among the products for the developing boy's body, walnuts (walnuts, almonds, pistachios), greens (parsley, dill, cumin), garlic, asparagus, pomegranate, figs, dairy products, beef are especially useful.
Parents should make sure that their son does not develop bad habits: if a teenager starts drinking and smoking before the end of adolescence, his development will be slowed down.
What about adults?
In men, natural penis enlargement does not occur after puberty (18-21 years). The only thing is that some of them have a delay in the development of the reproductive system, and puberty can end at the age of 25 - such cases are rare, but still occur. If there is no delay, then it is not worth believing that the penis will grow a little more after the age of twenty.
It is true that there are methods of artificial penis enlargement for men who can not reconcile with the length of their dignity. In cases of complete despair, it is necessary to resort to these measures, because each of these methods has its own contraindications and side effects.
The following are some of the most common ways to grow an adult man's genitals:
- Hormonal drugs for penis enlargement (called growth hormones).
- Use of expanders (an orthopedic tool for soft tissue stretching). Gives 1-2 cm growth.
- Implant placement in the intracavernous cavity of the penis.
- Ligamentotomy is a surgical enlargement of the genitals by narrowing the perineum.
- vacuum increase. The penis is inserted into a cylinder, from which air is removed from the other end through a pacifier.
- Saline injections. The change in size is observed only for a few months, after which the saline solution is gradually dissolved
It should be noted that the listed procedures are very unpleasant, because a person's intimate area is very sensitive. All of these methods are not recommended for cosmetic purposes, but when there are medical indications for genital growth (for example, during micropenis, when normal sexual life is not possible).
If you still want to increase your manhood, then you can try special sprays and ointments, the composition of which has an irritating effect. As a result of increased blood flow and the resulting swelling, the penis visually appears a few centimeters larger. The effect of such funds is short-lived - usually several hours.
