You may take vitamin like DHEA cap, L arginine and herbal ashwagandha capsule. Apply Himcolin gel. Concentrate on Yoga and meditation and also take help from your partner. Use these for couple of months if not improved do few blood tests like thyroid, sugar and testosterone and let me know.

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
