My penis size is too small and flashid.how can i increase my penis size and also erectile dysfunction.
Dr. Deepak Kumar Soni
Skin Specialist
Size doesn't matter of sexual satisfaction: The smaller organ has a much greater erectile capacity than the larger one. The size of the flaccid or erect penis has absolutely nothing to do with its pleasure-giving qualities. The vagina has a great deal of elasticity and it can adapt to any size of the male organ, be it large or small.https://www.1mg.com/otc/himalaya-confido-tablet-otc90667One ?one tablet morning & evening after taking food , use at least 1-2 months
