Guys Are Right: Size Matters, When It Comes To Fertility
Discussions surrounding the penis size and whether it matters are never ending. On one hand, women claim not to give a hoot about the size of their partners’ penises. However, it has become almost impossible to convince men otherwise. They remain firm in their belief that the size of their manhood is imperative, as it represents their masculinity. They associate penis size with their ability to sexually satisfy their partners. This explains why there is a lot of fuss about penis enlargement and why a good number of men are willing to do the impossible to lengthen and/widen their organs.
Turns out that are guys are right after all. Penis size does matter, at least as far as fertility is concerned. First things first – penis size doesn’t affect fertility. In any case, men with different penis sizes ranging from small to medium and large ones have become fathers. There is something else, though; you can rely on a particular measurement to determine your fertility chances. A study published in the Journal of Environmental Health Perspectives revealed that the AGD (ANOGENITAL DISTANCE) might have more importance compared to the penis size.
What is AGD?
It is defined as the distance measured from the anus all the way to the nearest point where the scrotum attaches the body. On average, the said distance measures two inches although some men exhibit shorter or longer lengths. Is there an ideal anogenital distance? Rather than pay any attention to the size of your penis when it comes to fertility issues, determine your AGD. Unfortunately, measurements of less than two inches should be seen as a sign of reduced fertility – and the opposite is true.
Accuracy of AGD values and fertility
The accuracy of the said connection between the anogenital distance and fertility in men is a little bit questionable, and there are good reasons for this. For instance, the original research involved 126 college students who weren’t trying to start families. The researchers measured their anogenital distance and sperm counts, after which a comparison was made.
Apparently, lower measurements of AGD were linked to lower sperm counts – in some cases. At the moment, all the fertility doctors aren’t convinced that anogenital distance plays a significant role in the fertility diagnosis. Some of them believe that this type of conclusion is a bit premature.
There are numerous other studies that are shedding light on the penis size matter (AGD) and fertility. For example, multiple research studies carried out at the Baylor college of Medicine, and a separate one at the University of Rochester found a connection between fertility and the anogenital distance. Results from the study conducted at the University of Rochester suggested that men with shorter AGD not only have lower sperm counts, but also lower sperm quality, lower sperm motility, as well as lower concentrations of sperms.
It is worth noting that the studies at Baylor College of Medicine also brought penis length into the equation – apart from the anogenital distance. Apparently, participants who were struggling with fertility also had shorter penis lengths.
Bottom line: the strongest indicator of fertility was anogenital distance. As such, it would be safe to conclude that penis length is a less dependable measurement of fertility compared to the AGD.
