At what age does a man’s penis stop growing?

Despite the fact that no study can show that origin and ethnicity have an influence on penis size, in reality, the average length of a male’s penis varies very often from one country to another. In addition to the final size of penises, it is clear that in all men there is one day when a penis stops growing.

It is difficult to give an exact and universal age of when a penis stops growing. This is because penis growth varies from one person to another. What is certain, however, is that penis growth directly relates to hormonal production, lifestyle and food. In other words, the higher the hormone production in a male, the bigger the penis. Boys who tend to suffer from hormonal problems will often, on the contrary, have a smaller penis.

Studies published on this subject explain that the average size of a penis reaches approximately 10 centimeters at rest and between 12-17 cm in erection. But then, you may wonder, at what age does a male penis stop growing? Well, in truth, the growth of a penis advances at the same rate as the growth of other body parts, which can develop up to 19-20 or 21 years. At these ages, the penis can grow between about 1/2 cm. For more, we recommend reading our article where we discuss how to measure a penis correctly.

At what age does a penis stop growing: penis sizes

As we explained earlier, a penis grows together with the rest of the body, which means that when a body is completely developed, so is the penis. Penis growth excels during puberty when hormonal production is high. In order to fully understand the growth stages of a penis, they must be divided into two stages:

At the age of around 12-13, at the beginning of puberty, hormonal production intensifies enormously and it is at this time that a penis grows the most. This stage lasts until about 16-17 years. When this first stage of penis growth comes to an end, the evolution of the penis size will be much less obvious. But as we mentioned, even if just a little, a penis can still grow up to 21 years. During these 3-4 years, the penis grows bigger in width and becomes thicker.

If you are not 20 years old yet, you do not have to worry about the size of your penis since it is still in period of growth and has not yet reached its maximum size or width. If, on the contrary, you are 21 years old and your growth has proceeded without too much trouble, then it is very likely that the your penis has stopped growing.
