View Full Version : Is this size OK???
:o :o I know this sounds very personal but I wanted some other opinions.....my 2nd little boy seems to have a very small penis (my husband would be horrified if he knew I was posting this!!) I have spoken with my doctor who seems to think it's very normal but to me it's not. My first son's was much bigger by this stage and was having little erections sometimes whereas my 2nd hasn't had one that I have seen and compared with other friends little boys his penis almost inverted.
I was wondering if anyone has heard of this type of problem or if I am just being crazy?? I just feel that if there is a problem it's better to get it fixed (if possible) earlier rather than later)
id Make sure U dont fuss over around him So he dont get a complex
An him been very younge u wouldnt know what size its goin to be
An we are all dif sizes regardles i wouldnt be worried
If your doctor says there isn't cause for concern, then there isn't cause for concern!
As Jaz'sMum said, everyone is different, and he's only young.
A friend of mine had the same sort of concerns, her first boy had an average sized penis (what ever that is, but basically it looked average) her second son had the tiniest one imaginable, I mean tiny!. She had heaps of problems trying to toilet train him (ended up using a potty) But as all the other posts have said each child/man is very different from the next and the worst thing you can do is point this out as a problem. You'll give your son a complex for the rest of his days :eek:
Just relax and dont worry about it, if it functions properly then leave it alone, thats the way god made him so love him like he is.
I'd think about getting another medical opinion, even if it's just for your peace of mind. It's no fun having those niggling concerns, it might end up not even being a problem. Hopefully this is the case.
Thanks Wattle for not making me feel like a bad Mother for just being concerned.
To the other replies.....don't worry I would NEVER point out something like that to him or make him aware of it in anyway. All I am worried about it that he might have a medical problem with it like infections due to it being tucked up inside of him and not being able to clean it properly or even getting teased at school by other boys. I realise that he is still only so young and I would not be worried in anyway but for the difference between his brother and him at the same age is HUGE. And as if this would make me love him any less!!
I'm sorry I posted this question.
There's no such thing as a silly question...... just silly answers. Go with what feels right, trust your Mothers intuition. We're all here to support you, really :)
I debated over posting this because I don't want to worry you. There is a condition called "micropenis". I have it on good authority from a friend that her hub had it and he was the size of her little finger when erect. After we finished laughing I felt pretty bad. But anyways, I think it's pretty rare and not really something that can be treated until after puberty probably, but if you do a general web search you may find some discussion of the condition and any associated medical issues.
hi WillandMattsMum -
if you are worried then ask around. there is no harm in getting a couple of opinions. You are a concerned mum and that is understandable. I myself, research anything I do not know about and second opinions can give you some reassurance. It may be nothing to be concerned about but the reassurance might give you a bit more peace of mind. :)
To WILLANDMATTS MUM
Im sorry if my post upset you I didnt intend it to be rude or insinuate(sp) that you didnt love your son.I simply wanted to point out that if theres nothing medically wrong with your sons penis then try not to worry about it.....I know thats easier said then done and a mothers intuition is very powerful so if you feel like theres a problem there probably is, get a second, third opinin if you feel strongly about it.
Please dont think I was being mean or anything by writing what I did.
Dear willand matts mum,
I just wanted to say as a mum I think it's natural to be concerned about everything! I know I am, and also have thoughts about same problem. I always think it's better to get things checked out if you have any doubts as that good old mums intuition is a pretty powerful thing!
Keep smiling and keep posting, don't be put off, as everyone's got different opinions but you gotta do what feels right for you!
I agree with Wattle - if you are seriously concerned (and you certainly sounded like you are) I would get a second opinion.
What a pity you ended up feeling that you should not have asked this question. I say; good on you for asking it ! As mums, I think we were almost programmed to think of the whole 'penis' thing as being something dad can deal with. Clearly, you saw something that worried you, and you acted in a way that you hoped would help !
Trust your instinct as a mother ! I don't think we do that enough ! If you are worried, then you should follow up ! You will always be glad that you did !
Chin up ! I understand that this must be really difficult for you.
Best of luck !
