Well-known medical journal, BJU International, reveals a new study of the effectiveness of the penile-extending device, Andropenis. According BJU International journal released this month, men who wore a penile extender every day for six months were able to increase the flaccid length of their penis by up to 32% and their erectile function by up to 36%.




Did we just hear a big relief sigh?

Researchers from San Giovanni Battista Hospital at the University of Turin, Italy, claim that the constant use of Andropenis could provide a viable alternative to surgery, as the results were significant and patient satisfaction with the technique was high.

“Twenty-one highly motivated patients, with an average age of 47, were enrolled and 16 completed the 12-month study,” says consultant urologist Dr Paolo Gontero.

Psychosexual counselling is necessary before starting using Andropenis, as to make sure that the treatment would be beneficial. According to Dr. Gonteor, men who wear the Andropenis device for between four and six hours a day for six months will see the result, as proven by his recent study.


What's Andropenis Like?

Andropenis comprises a plastic ring, two dynamic rods that produce the traction and a silicon band to hold the penis in place. The men were told to increase the traction from 600g in month one to up to 1200g in month six.


Talk Numbers

Below data was gathered within months one, three, six and 12. Key findings included:
  • Men who took part in the study wore the device for an average of five hours in the first month, five hours in the third month and four hours in the sixth month.
  • The men’s average flaccid penile length was 7.15cm (2.82 inches) at baseline and had increased by 32 per cent to 9.45cm (3.72 inches) in month 12.
  • The men’s average stretched penile length was 9.62cm (3.79 inches) at baseline and had increased by 18 per cent to 11.32 cm (4.45 inches) in month 12.
  • No significant increase in penile girth, which averaged 10.4cm (4.09 inches) at baseline, was reported.
  • Average erectile function scores improved by up to 36%, from 19.9 out of 30 at baseline to 27.1 out of 30 at 12 months.
  • Four patients discontinued the treatment for four different reasons: pain and penile bruising, satisfactory results after three months, lack of efficacy and inability to follow the protocol. Another was lost to follow-up.
  • High satisfaction levels were reported in all categories except penile girth. The average score for overall satisfaction was 2.8 on a scale of zero to four, where four represents the optimal result.
  • Flaccid penile length scored 2.31 on a scale of zero to three, where three represents significant improvement. Penile length during erection scored 2.37 out of three and sex life 2.3. Penile girth scored 1.1.

Do You Need Help?

It should also noted that the majority of men who seek help for a small penis fail to meet the clinical criteria for surgery. For example, only one of the men in our study had a flaccid penis length of less than 4cm and American guidelines strongly discourage surgery if men exceed this measurement. So before you decide whether or not you need help, you should consult the matter with a doctor first.

As Dr. Gontero points out, the use of Andropenis is much less confrontational to your body. The result too, as the authors believe, are quite significant.

“Our study showed that the penile extender device produces an effective and durable lengthening of the penis, both in the flaccid and stretched state,” concludes Dr Gontero.

“If these results are confirmed by further research, we propose that the device should be used as a first-line treatment option for men seeking a penile lengthening procedure.”
