Ever heard someone at the gym talking about steroids? Have they ever claimed that their penis got larger after beginning a steroid cycle? It’s important to know that these claims are untrue. Steroids will not help with penis lengthening or widening and can come with some serious risks, including testicle shrinkage and long-term health issues.
Do Steroids Offer Penis Lengthening Properties? The Answer is Definitely Not
Let’s make this perfectly clear: steroids will not make your penis larger. It won’t help with penis lengthening or penis widening. Steroid use also won’t make your penis smaller. It really has nothing to do with penis size. So, any rumors you’ve heard about penis size and steroids are completely false.
Remember, anabolic steroids are an illegal form of the hormone testosterone, so steroids won’t do anything for your penis size. Testosterone helps your penis grow in utero and during puberty, but won’t do anything for you later. Also, increasing your testosterone levels with anabolic steroids is not only illegal, it can be incredibly dangerous.
Steroids are Associated with Many Dangers
Taking steroids not only won’t help with penis lengthening, but it can put your health and even your life at risk. Steroids are illegal, and therefore you have to get them from seedy sources, meaning the steroids may be fake, tainted, or even made for animal use instead of human use. Also, increasing your testosterone levels with illegal steroids can lead to serious health complications.
One side effect of illegal steroids is testicle shrinkage. Since you’re adding testosterone to your body, it will stop producing its own naturally. This causes your testicles to shrink, often permanently. Not only does this affect how you look, it may also lead to testosterone deficiency, which can cause side effects like low sex drive and erectile dysfunction.
Other risks of anabolic steroid use include:
- High blood pressure
- Blood clots
- Heart attack
- Artery damage
- Hepatitis infection
- HIV/AIDS infection
- Liver tumors
- Liver damage
- Enlarged breasts
- Male pattern baldness
- Testicular cancer
- Tendon injuries
How Penis Enlargement Surgery Can Help if You Want a Larger Penis
Now you know why steroids are out (beyond them being illegal drugs), let’s talk about how you can actually increase the size of your penis. Penis enlargement surgery is an option if you want your penis longer or wider.
For penis lengthening, we separate the suspensory ligament, which holds a significant amount of the penis inside the body. Once the ligament is released, more of the penis hangs down and it can result in gains of one to two inches in the flaccid state.
Penis widening generally involves fat transfer, where we take fat from another part of your body, like the pubic fat pad or the love handles, purify it, and inject it into the penis to increase penis width. This can result in up to 35% increase in penis girth.
