I know erection quality comes into play here. Myself at 30 years of age has realized I\'ve lost about an inch. Thru out my 20\'s I was about, 7 1/4 inches. Today I\'m 6 to 61/4 on a good day. Should I be concerned? Or is this something I\'m not hearing about that is common. My girth is still strong and I\'m not getting any complaints from the wife. But it does a number on my ego. I should add recently was hospitalized with atrial fibrillation ( arrhythmia) and taking beta blockers to slow the . And I have asked if something like this was common. My cardiologist simply gave me a blank stare and said no.
Sorry if posted in wrong forum didn\'t know where else to post it.

I gained an Inch to what some argue was an improvement in my EQ when I used to do manual stretching & Jelqing. My theory was that it was a combination of stretched ligaments & Erection quality, but it\'s entirely plausible the Erection quality alone could have been the key. Since I did not maintain that regimen, I no longer have that length. I\'ve also noticed a visual (not measured) difference in length when having used a Cialis, since it gets me that much harder.
I\'ve read that men can have the appearance of shrinkage with age, but I\'ve always suspected weakening EQ as a culprit. Hard to say for sure, but your best bet would be to focus on improving your EQ as much as possible, not only for better sex, but to help determine to what extent a poor EQ plays on your length.
Any other members care to chime in? Any have experienced this? Any articles worth linking/citing?
EQ certainly plays a role in length lost due to aging. I turn 40 this year and my length is longer than ever. I attribute this to my diet, exercise and testosterone boosting. The traction device I\'ve been wearing seems to increase my EQ somewhat as well. I do not take any PDE-5 inhibitors such as Viagra, Levitra or Cialis.
Would lower T levels contribute to lower EQ? I was sent to give some blood to check if my T levels were low, but never made it to my appointment. Having three young children, working two jobs and going thru a nasty seperation makes it hard to find time to jerk off let alone get to an appointment. Oh and i was saying my age is 30. Not 30 years ago. Just cursed with a bad . Just from the time of my first post to now having to get back into dating scene im more motivated to get to the bottom of this.
Low T can certainly contribute to reduced EQ. I have three young children (2, 4 & 6 ... all boys) and a very stressful job. Also, I\'m 39 which is a huge difference from when I was 30! When the penis does not become erect for a period of time (lack of nocturnal tumescence, masturbation, intercourse, etc), the elastic tissues of the tunica and the corpora cavernosum/spongiosum do not receive the critical stretching and nourishment from the rapid filling of blood. This is a problem. If you are still having morning wood (technically nocturnal tumescence), then odds are you are okay and that perhaps stress/psychological issues are the source of your issue. When you are stressed, your levels of cortisol increase. Cortisol fights testosterone. I would advise against taking any PDE-5 inhibitors (Viagra/Cialis/Levitra) especially with coronary issues. I would suggest beginning topical magnesium oil. It will help you relax, strengthen your and increase vasodilation. Contrary to what some so-called \"medical experts\" say, the penis does not shrink with age. Lack of testosterone, increase aromatization into E (particularly the horrid Estradiol), increased SHBG and prolactin which decreases libido and EQ are responsible for the \"shrinkage\". T also plays a part in the development and musculature of the pelvis. Not having quality erections causes the penis to become inelastic and thus... smaller. While it is true that internal organs atrophy and become fibrotic with increasing age (thus incapable of working efficiently), this can be avoided with pharmaceutical grade recombinant human growth hormone. From an endocrinological view of the aging male/female, hormones and the loss/imbalance of hormones is at the front line of the downfall. If you optimize T, E, E2, DHT, prolactin, DHEA, DHEA-S, progesterone, androstenedione, etc, you can virtually eliminate the symptoms of aging. I feel like I did when I was 21 years old... Strong, Energetic and super HORNY. I also have experienced a remarkable sense of well being. If you have questions, please PM me BUM. I\'m happy to help.
