How to measure penis length, is my penis too small/ too big?

Image

Penis Size: What’s Normal, What’s Not

You might think that as long a man’s penis works, he would have no problem with it. You would be wrong.

Penis size is a key element of a man’s self-image. Yet when he’s not boasting to other men, the average man significantly underestimates the relative size of his penis.

Here’s an example: Over a two-year period, 67 men asked an Italian hospital for surgical correction of a small penis. All turned out to have normal-size penises.

“A few days ago, I had a patient who spent an hour taking measurements of his penis and thinking it is too small,” Gilbert says. “Yet it was normal.”

That man isn’t alone. About 45% of his brethren want a bigger penis. Never mind that 85% of heterosexual women say they are satisfied with their partners’ penis parameters.

How to Measure a Penis

Men may be surprised to learn that penis length isn’t measured on the erect penis. Too many variables are involved.

Instead, the most reliable penis measurement is called SPL — stretched penis length. The longer a man’s SPL, the longer his erect penis length, according to studies done on brave young men who volunteered to have erection-stimulating penis injections.

To learn your SPL, measure the penis while it’s flaccid. Press the ruler tight against the pubic bone at the base of the penis. Don’t just measure from where the penis separates from the scrotum, or you’ll lose precious centimeters. Now gently, but very firmly, stretch the penis as far as it will go. Measure from the pubic bone to the tip of the stretched penis.

Did you get five and a quarter inches? If so, you are exactly normal. Most adult men are within about a half inch of 5.24 inches, according to statistics Palmer has compiled. Nearly all studies of penis length come up with a similar measure.

If you’re a little smaller than that, you’ve got lots of company. Just as many men are below average penis size as above it.

How big is big? According to Palmer’s statistics, only 0.6% of men have an SPL of 6.8 inches or more. But too big isn’t what men tend to worry about.

MICROPENIS: WHEN A PENIS REALLY IS TOO SMALL

There is, of course, such a thing as a very small penis. The medical term “micropenis” applies to the 0.6% of men with the smallest penises. According to Palmer’s statistics, an SPL of three and two-thirds inches or less indicates a micropenis.

Even then, U.S. doctors hesitate to recommend surgery for a man whose SPL is longer than three inches. That’s because surgery is controversial and risky.

Micropenis isn’t usually something a man discovers when he’s an adult. It’s usually caused by genetic or hormonal abnormalities that cause other, more serious health problems early in life.

That’s because the penis starts to develop when a fetus is just 8 weeks old. By week 12, the penis has developed and begins to grow. During the second and third trimesters, male sex hormones cause the penis to grow to normal length. Factors that interfere with hormone production and hormone action stunt penis growth.

When discovered in infancy, micropenis can be treated with testosterone, which can stimulate penis growth in childhood, even after puberty. While the safety and long-term efficacy of this treatment remains to be proved, available data suggest the treatment does not affect normal development during puberty.

For adults with micropenis, the options are few.

“For true micropenis, there is not much you can do that is adequate for the adult patient, except for putting in a penile prosthesis,” Gilbert says.

Fortunately, micropenis is a rare condition. Far more common is what Palmer and colleagues call “the constellation of conditions that make the penis look diminutive and small” — inconspicuous penis.

Many men worry about the size of their erections. Many more worry about how their penis looks when it’s limp, studies find.

So how can a man know if he’s normal, super-sized, or small? Not by his shoe size, a common and disproved myth about estimating penis length. Like so much else in life, direct measurement is the key.

Can Devices Make a Small Penis Larger?

Traction devices that stretch the penis may actually add an inch or so to penis length, based on small studies and anecdotal reports. Gilbert says he is following two patients who are using these devices in an effort to make their penises longer.

“These devices have to be worn for several hours a day, for many months,” he says. “Most people, even if they are highly motivated, don’t have that kind of time. So I’m not sure a lot of patients have the time or energy or perseverance to do that.”

Vacuum devices may help men with erectile dysfunction achieve an erection — but they do not make the penis larger.

Can Regenerative Medicine Make a Small Penis Larger?

However, there is one area of research with intriguing possibilities: regenerative medicine. Scientists have been able to grow animal penises in the laboratory by seeding scaffolds with the animals’ own cells. These penises then were successfully transplanted.

Already a group of researchers in Beijing, China, have reported using a similar technique to treat 69 patients with what they called small penis syndrome. In this case, the tissues were grown from the patients’ own scrotal skin and grafted to their penises to increase their girth.

“With regenerative medicine, the sky is the limit,” Palmer says. “We might have this as an option down the line.”

“Regenerative medicine is still not ready for prime time,” Gilbert says. “These things have a lot of potential, but nothing we can offer to patients in the near future.”

Hormonal Male Contraception, by: Prof . Dr. Nukman Moeloek, dr, SpAnd

Kontrasepsi Hormonal Pada Pria

Abstrak

Penelitian Kontrasepsi pria akhir-akhir ini di arahkan pada penggunaan hormon dengan kombinasi antara androgen dan progestogen. Dari hasil beberapa penelitian terakhir, hasilnya cukup menjanjikan, meskipun masih terus disempurnakan untuk dapat diaplikasikan pada masyarakat luas. Androgen yang diberikan berfungsi untuk menekan hormon gonadotropin, sehingga dapat menekan spermatogenesis dan juga untuk mempertahankan kadar testosteron darah sehingga tidak menimbulkan efek yang tidak diinginkan seperti halnya penurunan libido pada pria. Sedangkan progestogen diharapkan dapat lebih menekan hormon gonadotropin sehingga semakin menekan spermatogenesis. Seperti yang dinyatakan oleh Lam et al, (2005), bahwa regimen kombinasi androgen+progestogen adalah pendekatan sangat menjanjikan untuk pengembangan regimen kontrasepsi hormonal pria.

Segala upaya riset yang dilakukan tentunya berujung pada diterapkannya kontrasepsi hormonal pada pria yang bertujuan untuk mengatur jumlah penduduk Indonesia atas peran aktif pria dengan harapan dapat meningkatkan kualitas hidup manusia indonesia. Serta mengurangi beban wanita yang selama ini lebih banyak “menderita” akibat KB.

Penelitian kombinasi androgen dan progestogen jangka panjang yang dilakukan oleh Moeloek dkk, 2002, menggunakan Testosteron Undekanoat (TU) dan Depot Medroksi Progesteron Asetat (DMPA), pada 40 pria Indonesia, di Jakarta dan Palembang, menunjukkan semua pria mencapai azoospermia.

Moeloek dkk, saat ini telah berhasil melakukan penelitian membuat TU dan DMPA menjadi satu emulsi yaitu mikroemulsi TU/MPA sehingga lebih mudah diterima masyarakat karena untuk aplikasinya akseptor hanya perlu satu kali disuntik setiap datang.

Selain itu, WHO/CONRAD sedang melakukan penelitian multisenter kombinasi androgen dan progestogen jangka panjang, TU dan Noretisteron Enantat (NET-EN) dengan penyuntikan tiap 2 bulan sekali untuk melihat keampuhannya (ketidak hamilan pada pasangan sang pria) di beberapa negara. Di Indonesia, penelitian ini sedang dilakukan oleh Moeloek dkk, pada 65 partisipan dengan hasil yang sangat menjanjikan. Sampai saat ini tidak ada istri pasangan pria yang hami;, dan telah memasuki fase reversibilitas serta diharapkan akan selesai 3 bulan mendatang.

Tentang Peneliti:

Prof . Dr. Nukman Moeloek, dr, SpAnd adalah seorang dr Spesialis Androlog yang telah berpartisipasi dalam banyak penelitian nasional dan internasional. Tentang kurikulum beliau yang lebih lengkap silakan lihat di sini.

INDONESIA: Healthcare system failing millions

Indonesia’s decentralised healthcare system is in need of reform
Reference: http://www.irinnews.org/Report.aspx?ReportId=85600

JAKARTA, 6 August 2009 (IRIN) – Indonesia’s health system is failing to provide even the most basic care to vast swathes of the population, say specialists. Many who cannot afford doctors’ fees often receive no treatment at all, while the wealthy fly abroad for a check-up.

The system is plagued by under-funding, decentralization, lack of qualified staff, rising medical costs and outdated medical equipment, say insiders.

“The health system desperately needs improvement,” said Kartono Mohammad, a senior doctor and former chairman of the Indonesian Medical Association (IDI), adding that it is hard to even speak of a healthcare system since there is no regulation or quality control.

“There are no laws that protect the patient,” he said.

Misdiagnosis

In June, the system’s failures were the focus of nationwide debate when a patient was sued by a hospital after her complaints about poor treatment were published on the internet.

In 2008, Prita Mulyasari checked into the Omni International Hospital in Tangerang, a satellite city of the capital Jakarta, where she was misdiagnosed with dengue fever and given injections that made her hands and neck swell and made breathing difficult. Later, it emerged that the mother-of-two had mumps.

Omni sued Mulyasari for damaging its reputation, but after an outpouring of public support, including from parliament, the lawsuit was dropped.

“Doctors are very protective of each other. It is a conspiracy of silence,” says Mohammad. “Doctors here don’t want to testify against their own colleagues.”

And though it is unclear how many patients are misdiagnosed each year, many disputes are believed to be settled under the table.

Those who have a choice fly to Singapore, Australia, Malaysia and even the United States or Europe in search of better care.

According to Fahmi Idris, chairman of the IDI, at least one million Indonesians are estimated to seek medical care oversees each year.

Access and cost

But for most of Indonesia’s more than 250 million inhabitants, even the lowest quality healthcare is often inaccessible. Access to health facilities across Indonesia’s 6,000 inhabited islands varies greatly.

While cities usually offer a range of services for most medical problems, in remote areas such as the easternmost province of Papua it can take several days to reach a doctor.

Some islands or remote mountain villages can be inaccessible for months at a time during the monsoon season.

In addition, many low-income earners or the unemployed avoid going to a doctor, explained Ajriani Munthe Salak, from the Legal Aid Institute for Health (LBH). “They stay at home, hoping the illness will disappear. They are afraid of bills and the bureaucratic system.”

According to the World Bank, about 100 million Indonesians live on less than US$2 a day.

Government efforts

Critics say a new health insurance scheme for the poor, Jamkesmas, launched by the government in early 2008 is too complicated, requiring a patient to provide documentation on income, identity, hospital registration, family records and a doctor’s referral notice.

The Health Ministry has spent seven years drafting an ambitious new universal healthcare bill, but it has faced delays, budget problems and technical hurdles, such as a lack of a common definition for malpractice, said Mariani Akib Baramuli, a member of parliament.

“The country still faces significant challenges in developing and implementing effective and sustainable health-financing reform,” according to Joachim von Amsberg, World Bank country director for Indonesia.

Lawmakers hope the bill will pass during the current term that expires in October, but there is a huge backlog of other work.

Meanwhile, as politicians debate the bill, the problem of affordable care is becoming more entrenched.

Indonesian hospitals are even known to keep patients “hostage” until family members can settle their bills.

Since 1999, Salak’s organisation has handled almost 500 cases, mostly in Jakarta.

“But that is just the tip of the iceberg. There are probably millions of people who don’t have real access to healthcare,” she said.

The country’s geography makes access difficult. Of Indonesia’s 17,000 islands, just 6,000 are inhabited. With the vast distances involved, it is impossible reach everyone, she said. “We get calls from Papua, but we don’t have money to fly over there, it is just too costly,” she added.

How Indonesia’s Health Care System Let Me Down

By Jason Tedjasukmana / Jakarta Wednesday, Feb. 17, 2010
Reference: http://www.time.com/time/world/article/0,8599,1964611,00.html

I never thought I would let the grim stories I’d heard about Indonesia’s health care system turn me into one of those expats who left the country at the slightest hint of a sore throat. I may have been skeptical of undergoing any major procedure in the country where I’ve been living since 1994, but I was pretty confident local doctors could handle a run-of-the-mill condition like vernal conjunctivitis. I was wrong.

In April 2009, my right eye started to itch and turned red. My vision turned blurry, and I couldn’t figure out why I was losing sight in that eye, so I went to see a general practitioner, who suggested I see a specialist as it looked as though the problem might be in the cornea. I followed his advice, and after enduring a merry-go-round of eye doctors in Jakarta, my eye continued to get worse. Weeks later, I decided to leave the country to seek treatment, but by then it was too late. The condition had already damaged my cornea. Doctors in Singapore, where many Indonesians go in search of better care, suggested a number of treatments, including a corneal transplant if the others failed to restore my sight. I opted for another opinion back in the U.S. (See the most common hospital mishaps.)

For me to say that Indonesia’s health care system is inadequate is, well, far from adequate, so let me quote a former head of the Indonesian Doctors’ Association. “We have no health system,” Dr. Kartono Mohammad recently told a group of journalists. “There is no quality control.” At a time when Indonesia is striving to reach the ranks of the BRIC countries, strong fundamentals and an economy set to grow around 5% this year have yet to boost the hopes of millions in need of basic, reliable health services. For 2010, the health ministry has been allocated $2.2 billion, which is a slight increase over last year but still half of what is generally spent by the defense department. Overall, spending on health comes in at less than 2% of the year’s total fiscal expenditures estimated around $110 billion. “It’s still not enough,” admits Health Minister Endang Rahayu Sedyaningsih. “Of course it is not right yet, but a national health system is there.”

That might come as a surprise to the hundreds of Indonesians that still die each year of tuberculosis, malaria, dengue fever and other treatable illnesses. As for myself, I wondered how something as treatable as vernal conjunctivitis, which generally afflicts allergy sufferers, could lead to blindness. I had to go back to the U.S. to find out what at least six doctors here couldn’t decipher; a doctor in Michigan diagnosed my problem in five minutes. “You have a case of vernal conjunctivitis,” the cornea specialist told me. “If your doctors over there had looked under your eyelid they would have caught it, or at least they should have.” (See “The Year in Health 2009.”)

In fact, they did look. A fairly senior doctor hastily flipped my eyelid but failed to notice anything, despite the development of bumps similar to cobblestones that were scraping my cornea every time I blinked. A simple steroid would have reduced the swelling (as it did once I was prescribed one in the States) but I was told over and over that steroid drops would make it worse. Instead, in addition to dozens of antibiotic and antiviral drops, the doctors in Jakarta “cleaned” my eye by scraping off a layer, hoping a new layer would grow over the damaged center that was now exposed like a scraped kneecap. The pain that ensued once the anesthetic wore off was like having shards of glass driven into my eye, yet it could have been mitigated with a bandage lens — a protective contact lens with no power, which I also never received.

Naturally, I thought about suing the doctors, an avenue which Kartono and other health care experts have warned me rarely pays off. “It is a very gloomy picture,” says Ajriani Munthe Salak, a researcher from the Legal Aid Foundation for Health. The chances of winning a malpractice suit in Indonesia are slim, she said, and the chances of damages being paid even slimmer.

I had already told myself that I was fortunate to have the means to seek treatment overseas, and that I would not pursue legal action if my vision was restored. After nine months, thousands of dollars and a procedure performed by an American doctor, about 50% of my vision has been restored. The imbalance between the right and left eye, which has normal vision, causes routine dizziness and discomfort, but I remain optimistic that I will get my right eye back.

If I don’t, though, I feel compelled to do something, not so much for myself as for the millions of Indonesians who are much less fortunate and have nowhere else to go. The more I ask about the doctors I saw in Jakarta, the more horror stories emerge. One person I contacted reached a settlement in a similar case, though it cost her an eye. Others feared the prospects of a legal battle similar to one endured by Prita Mulyasari, a working class Jakarta woman who dared to criticize a local hospital and spent months facing down its lawyers. She has become something of an icon for all that is wrong with Indonesia’s health care system. I don’t know what I’ll do yet, but I commend Mulyasari for having the courage to challenge a system that has let so many people down.
