When Do Penises Start and Stop Growing?


Most penis growth occurs during puberty, though there may be continued growth into a man’s early 20s. Puberty usually begins between the ages of 9 and 14 and lasts up to five years or so, depending on the age at which it starts. However, by the time you reach 18 or 19 years old, your penis isn’t likely to grow much longer or thicker.

The growth rate during puberty varies from one male to another. A 2010 study found that the average rate of penis growth is less than half an inch per year from ages 11 to 15, after which the growth rate continues, but at a slower rate until the age of 19 or so. You also start producing semen during puberty. Erections and ejaculation become more common during this time, as well.

What is the average penis size?
