If you have been smoking or thinking of picking up the habit, you might want to reconsider it, especially for all the men out there. Although smoking cigarettes can be calming to many, you might be stressed even more after finding that out it might lead to the shrinkage of your penis.
Marc Laniado, urologist from Harley Street, said: “I see erectile dysfunction a great deal. To have a firm erection, you need sufficient blood flow. Smokers have a higher incidence of atherosclerosis in all blood vessels, including those in the penis, which can reduce blood flow.” Laniado further noted that nicotine triggers narrowing of the blood vessels. Although this is often temporary, there is also a high possibility that it will be a permanent thing, which no man would want to ever happen.
Laniado explained that smoking stops blood flowing through the man’s penis. He then summarized that “smoking can make your penis appear shorter or in fact become shorter.”
