Hey I am 13 turning 14 in a week,

I am 5 foot tall and wear a size 6(UK) 7(US) shoe. From the bottom of hand to the tip of my middle finger it measures 6 inches. And I weigh 35Kg.

My penis is 2-3 inches flaccid and 4 inches erect. girth is 9cm.

I just wanted to know if it will still grow

if so could it grow to like 8-9 inches ?

If not how big can it grow ?

Measurements of your hand and your weight really can't tell us anything about how your genitals will be. Genetics are responsible for things like that.

You're still quite young, and there's a chance you have not quite begun puberty yet. Growth spurts are good indicators of whether or not puberty has begun. During puberty, which can go throughout all your teen years, will be when you notice changes in your genitals.

We can't tell you exactly how much your genitals will grow because your body will determine that as you grow older. But right now, for your age you are perfectly normal. And do keep in mind that bigger does not necessarily mean better-- a normal functioning penis is just as good as any.

Actually, you don't need to worry at all, as penis size has nothing to do with how well it functions. Not to mention that, with 4 inches, you're already pretty darn close to average anyway.

Well, not really, Johny. Many, many women really don't care about penis size. (Not to mention not every woman even WANTS to have a penis inside them- what about women who aren't interested in men or who aren't interested in male-female intercourse?)

Nope: there really is nothing that a large penis does that a small penis couldn't. The vaginal canal itself is only about 5 inches long on average, and has the vast majority of nerve endings right around the entrance. Any sensation that goes on further back is more of a general feeling of full-ness, rather than anything else. Plus, most women don't even get the most pleasure from intercourse alone - it's clitoral stimulation that tends to do the trick. So, there is no reason at all to fret about penis size.

I wouldn't worry about it - I know plenty of boys who didn't really hit puberty until 9th or 10th grade...I obviously don't know the size of their genitals, but I remember reading somewhere that 5-6 inches (erect) is average for a fully grown adult (8-9 would be an anomaly), so it sounds like you are developing at about an average pace for your age.

As was I...as a fetus! [Razz]

But on a serious note, you're still young, give it time. I didn't start my growth spurt until the summer ( I turned 14 last summer, that's when), so I'm guessing you'd start your height spurt and penis size spurt soon!

Honestly, I went from about a 5 to an 8 all in one summer.

Fun - It'd be nice if you could not make jokes about penis size. This isn't a locker room, mkay? Why don't you take a look at the new article Heather just put up?

So penis growth is unpredictable so I could grow to 11" or just to 5" ?

Yep. There's no way for you to know when you'll grow, and how much. But if you read the entire article, you'll also know that it doesn't really matter. So, no reasons to worry.

Again, do look at that link. All that information is in there.

And really? No one is very likely to grow an 11 inch penis. Most penises are within the 4-8 inch range. 11-inch penises are getting close to world records.

If got another question

Will your penis only start growing once your body does ? Like Im only 5 foot and I really haven't grown that much (neither has my penis) ! So do you think once I start growing fast , will my penis as well ??

It's possible. When you reach a growth spurt, it's safe to say that puberty is kicking in, and you will see changes on all parts of you-- including your genitals. So your penis may grow then, but there is no guarantee to how much, and likewise, no need to worry about it very much. [Smile]

Thanx but I have puberty hair but no hair under my arms so does this mean I have hit puberty yet ? And if so does it mean my penis won't grow anymore ??

If you've started growing pubic hair, then you've probably entered puberty. However, puberty is a process and it takes a few years, so your penis may or may not still grow. Again, as we've told you many times in this thread: there is no way to predict penis growth, and it's also a bit pointless as penis size does not matter, and you're already close to average anyway.

Thanx so I guess I'll just have to wait and see what comes my way.

Is it possible for somebody not to hit the growth spurt ? Like you just stop growing before you even get to that spurt ?

I don't believe there are too many, if any at all, boys who don't hit a growth spurt. How much taller you get in that spurt may be variable, however.

i would agree with everyone else... there is no set way your penis will grow. but ya usually when you hit a growth spurt is when it will happen( not always) but most of the time. with me i started to grow height wise as well as penis around the same time.

In most cases, though, a growth spurt will come first, and often enough, penis growth will happen after that first starts, not at the same time.

From my experience people have told me that your testicles grow before your penis does.

So,

Does testicle size differ from person to person. Or is there like a close range of sizes (9-11) ?

Testicle growth usually does begin before penis growth occurs. And of course, the size of testicles are going to vary from person to person. Testicles can vary from male to male, and from age to age, but not too incredibly greatly, especially when puberty is finished.

So is it possible for someone to have a small penis and small testicles ?

Like their penis still looks like that of a child even after puberty.

But you aren't done with puberty, Johny. Not even close.

But for someone who IS done with puberty, their genitals will tend to reflect that. Size does vary (so yes, some adults have smaller penises and testes than others), but size isn't the only difference we see to genitals after puberty: pubic hair and descended testicles, for instance, are not something we see with the genitals of male children. Really, the genitals of an adult and the genitals of a small child look very different, and not just because of size differences.

My testis is just over 1 inch (1.1 inches) and I haven't noticed any growth in my penis or my testis. Because I heard that once your testis grow to 1 inch you have started puberty but now mine have reached that stage but don't want to grow any further !

Will my testis/penis still grow ?

Why did my penis grow to 1 inch and stop ?

Likely because, as Heather pointed out to you earlier, you are nowhere near done with puberty yet. Heck, you've only just started. Give your body some time! There is no need to stress over these things at all, and certainly not when you're only in the beginning stages of puberty.
