According to a new study conducted by US researchers from the University of Utah, Salt Lake City, men with small penises are more exposed to infertility. The study, conducted on about 900 men revealed that those who suffer from infertility presented shorter penises in comparison to those who had no fertility issues.
As reported by the scientists, the infertility risks increase in men with penises by about a third of an inch shorter than the average measurement in those with no reproductive issues.
“It may not be a striking difference, but there was a clear statistical significance. It remains to be determined if there are different penile length cut-offs that would predict more severe infertility,” explained the study’s leading author, Dr. Austen Slade, a researcher at the University of Utah, Salt Lake City.
While it’s a well-known fact that sexually there’s no significant difference between a shorter penis and a longer one, besides the size itself, the new study revealed that the men with small penises might be infertile.
Men With Small Penises Are More Exposed To Infertility, According To A US Study
The recent research was carried out on about 900 men from a facility clinic in Denver, Colorado, USA. The participants accepted the doctors to measure their penises. However, the whole process was very sluggish, the scientists achieving the number of measurements they required for their study in almost three years.
According to the researchers from the University of Utah, in Salt Lake City, those who presented infertility have penises of 4.92 inches, on average, while in those who had no reproductive issues the average penis size was of 5.27 inches.
The study is, however, only statistical as the scientists found no clinical link between small penises and infertility. However, the review it’s interesting, and the researchers admit that further research might be needed to confirm the results.
