Health: Top Reasons why your manhood will reduce in size

This might be some piece of bad news to all boys out there. Your manhood can be on a risk of shrinking by up to one inch due to different reasons. Though you can’t do much about some of the causes, others are completely avoidable if you just change a few simple things.

According to health researchers, an average penis size is 13.12cm long with a girth of 11.66cm when erect. Today, we would like to share with you some of the things that could lose you some of those precious centimetres.


This is the top reason for the shrink of manhood. Scientists say that some of the toxins in cigarettes can damage the blood vessels in your nether member and this can also lead to a struggle of getting an erection thus a poor perfomance during the ‘game of throws’.


The prostate grows naturally with age, usually without problems. However, in some men, the enlarged prostate compresses the urethra, making urination difficult and causing benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) which has symptoms like Urinating frequently, especially at night

The medicines used to particularly treat such prostate problems tha also include prostrate cancer can cause the manhood to shrink. This can be as a result of the side effects of some antidepressants and antipsychotics.



It is a fact that the nether member plus the testicles can loose some centimetres and size respectively as men get older. This is because the build-up of fatty deposits in the arteries reduce blood flow when you need it.

Prostate surgery

Though doctors claim they don’t really know why this happens, it has been confirmed and agreed by health researchers that about 70 per cent of men who have had this kind of surgery experience shrinking.

In this operation which is done most often because of cancer, the surgeon removes the entire prostate gland plus some of the tissue around it, including the seminal vesicles.

Peyronie’s disease

This disease is caused by repeated penile injury, typically during sex or physical activity and it causes the penis to curve when erect.
Though these members vary in shape and size and having a curved erection isn’t necessarily a cause for concern, In Peyronie’s disease, the bend is significant, and may occur along with pain or interfere with sexual function.

This leads to scar tissue which can block blood flow and make it smaller while erect
