Erection in older children is a normal physiological state. There should be no reason to panic. They talk with the boy, talking about all the intricacies of growing up. Mothers are not recommended to discuss intimate topics with their son. This leads to awkwardness on both sides and the development of psychological trauma in the child. Early signs of arousal are not associated with puberty, their appearance may be the norm or the result of developed pathologies.
The first signs of puberty
At what age the penis rises in boys, not all parents, especially mothers, know. Normally, the process begins at 11-12 years old, but there are minor deviations.
The first thing a teenager notices is an enlarged penis.
- uncontrolled erections;
- nocturnal emissions;
- sexual attraction to girls;
- erotic dreams and other signs.
Adulthood lasts about 5 years. Testosterone, a male hormone, enters the bloodstream, which leads to a change in the character and appearance of a teenager. The change in behavior is not surprising. Hormonal changes often make a young man aggressive and quick-tempered.
The final formation of the reproductive system occurs at 18 years of age, although many boys have their first sexual intercourse much earlier. On average, this occurs at 13–16 years of age.
Teenage erections lead to the desire to experience the first pleasure in life, so most teenagers masturbate.
Having caught 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 man change?
Moms and dads often wonder why a child's behavior is changing, and often not for the better. The guy makes scandals, runs away from home, closes in on himself.
Parents suspect their son of drug use, ties with a bad company. Regular interrogation does not lead to good relations and angers the growing child even more.
You can recognize growing up by hair growth:
- on the chest and face;
- in the genital area.
During the period of hormonal adjustment, the voice coarsens and the sexual organ grows.
Naturally, the boy will not show his mother's penis; adult males will be able to notice such changes.
In the process of growing up, sperm begins to accumulate in the testicles. It can already lead to conception. Before this opportunity arises, the boy must be aware of the intimate nuances and consequences of an unwanted pregnancy.
An adult man, preferably a father, should bring the young man up to date. If this is not possible, the guy studies the information on his own - in books, magazines, the Internet.
You have to be careful with the latter. A growing guy will definitely want to watch an intimate video. The plots of the pictures are different. By focusing on a particular video, a guy can radically change his views on adult life.
Erection in adolescents is often accompanied by erotic dreams. A sufficient amount of sperm accumulates in the testicles, it comes out. The first wet dream scares guys. They are afraid of criticism from their parents, they feel guilty for the soiled sheet.
Parents notice that the son himself removed the bedding and loaded it into the washing machine. Neither mother nor father should ask unnecessary questions, putting the guy in an awkward position. If an intimate topic has not yet been opened, it's time for the father to take a moment to explain the situation. It is important to know at what age boys get up so as not to miss important changes.
Young men often do not remember their dreams and do not understand why the ejaculation occurred. Some consider it pathological.
Nocturnal emissions in boys are a normal physiological state in which sexual tension is relieved. Excess accumulated sperm leads to discomfort. While a man is not yet sexually active, the body empties the testicles itself.
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 discomfort;
- 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 come to terms with the fact of growing up. This is a natural process that had to start. During this difficult period, one should be tactful and friendly, because one wrong word can spoil relations with the blood for a long time.
Moms and dads should not condemn their son for:
- uncontrolled erection and ejaculation;
- viewing intimate magazines;
- mood swings.
Finding a masturbating teenager, you need to remain silent and pretend that nothing happened, giving the child the opportunity to clean up after himself. You also don't need to focus on yourself. Doctors do not have a single point of view on this matter. Some consider the emptying of the testicles to be normal from the point of view of physiology, others say that it is immoral and unacceptable.
Parents will not be able to influence this process, if a teenager wants to do this, he will always find an opportunity to retire.
The concepts of morality should be instilled from early childhood; during growing up, this will be perceived as an invasion of personal space.
Erection at an early age
Signs of growing up in boys up to 6-8 years old baffle parents. They sometimes appear in children of the first year of life. Often you don't have to worry. That happens.
Harmless reasons include:
- tight underwear or an uncomfortable diaper;
- bladder overflow;
- mechanical impact.
- Congenital malformations of the genitourinary system.
- Inflammatory processes in the intestines, bladder, testicles.
- Worm infestations.
- Disorders of the CNS.
- Circulatory problems.
- Infection of the foreskin and others.
Often the diagnosis is made during the initial examination of the pediatrician. Less often, it is required to conduct an ultrasound of the genitourinary system, pass smears, blood tests, and so on.
Treatment is selected according to the results of the tests. Most often, the baby needs antibiotics, physiotherapy, and other things.
Acting alone is prohibited. Heat and cold compresses can seriously harm a child, and taking medication will distort the clinical signs and prevent a quick diagnosis.
"Until what age does the penis grow? "- this question is asked by many parents, concerned about whether everything is in order with the health of their sons. 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 certain 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 answers to these questions.
Stages of development in children
- Stage one, intrauterine. The penis and scrotum are formed in the fetus by the 16th week, by this time it is already possible to determine the sex of the unborn child.
- Stage two, prepubertal. Before the onset of puberty, the boy's genitals are underdeveloped (infantile, that is, children's). In an infant, the penis measures only 1. 5-2. 5 cm, the head of the penis is not visible, the foreskin is narrowed (children's phimosis). 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 is formed, a voice breaks, hair appears on the face and body.
Intensive penis enlargement is noticeable in the first three years (up to about 15–18 years). Further, the growth of the penis slows down (the maximum penis increases by 1 cm per year), and, as a rule, by the age of 19-21 the penis reaches its maximum thickness and length.
If a teenager is not doing well
What if a young man who has begun puberty does not have the expected growth of the penis? There is no need to panic, the fact is that everyone changes at different times. If the symptoms of maturation do not occur by the age of 15-16 and the genitals still remain in an infantile state, then this is already a serious cause for concern - hormonal disorders may be a possible reason for the lack of proper growth of the penis.
Another question - what sizes are considered normal? In adolescence, you should not panic about size - growth can be slow at first, and then in a year the penis can stretch 5–6 cm at once. The following is considered 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, whose size reaches 9 cm or more, is considered normal from a medical point of view. With sizes of 3–9 cm, there is such a thing as a small penis. Less than 3 cm is an anatomical anomaly 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 negatively affect the genitals. So, for example, with a testosterone deficiency of 60%, 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 influence - for the normal construction of the body, a sufficient amount of building material is needed. Among the products for the body of a developing boy, nuts (walnuts, almonds, pistachios), herbs (parsley, dill, cumin), garlic, asparagus, pomegranate, figs, dairy products, beef are especially useful.
Parents should carefully monitor that their son does not develop bad habits: if a teenager starts drinking alcohol and smoking before puberty is completed, then a slowdown in the development of his body is guaranteed.
And what about adults?
The natural growth of the penis 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 maturation can end as early as 25 years old - such cases are rare, but still happen. If there are no delays, then 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 cannot come to terms with the length of their dignity. It is necessary to resort to these measures in situations of complete despair, after all, each of these methods has its own contraindications and side effects.
Of the most common methods for 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 tool for stretching soft tissues). Gives an increase of 1-2 cm.
- Installation of the implant 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 means of a 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 sexual life is not possible).
If you still want to increase manhood, then you can try special sprays and ointments, the composition of which produces an irritating effect. As a result of increased blood flow and edema, the penis visually seems to be a couple of centimeters larger. The effect obtained from such funds is short-term - usually a couple of hours.
