There are many websites (both manufacturer and ‘review’ sites) that claim that you can permanently enlarge your penis by several inches simply through the use of ‘penis pills’. I have bought and taken many of the leading brands and I can categorically state that this isn’t the case.
The better brands of penis pills do have some very positive effects – but used on their own you will not see a permanent increase in penis size.
Now that we’ve cleared that up, let’s take a realistic look at what they can do.
What you can expect is:
- Stronger erections – which will look bigger that usual
- An increase in sex drive
- They’ll speed up the permanent size gains you can achieve through penile exercise.
Next…I’ll explain how penis pills work and how you can exploit their effects.
Penis pills have two physiological effects:
- They contain compounds known as vasodilators which expand the penile arteries, allowing increased blood to enter the penis both when flaccid and erect.
- They naturally increase the body’s production of the male sex hormone testosterone, therefore increasing sex drive and promoting more frequent, firmer and longer lasting erections.
The upshot of these two effects is that after a couple of weeks of use you’ll experience significantly improved erectile function. Due to the surge of blood flow to the penis, together with an elevated sex drive, you’ll achieve extremely powerful erections – like those usually reserved for when you’re extremely sexually aroused.
My own experiences with VigRX Plus pretty much sum up what you can expect – massively swollen, statuesque like erections…and lot’s of them. And yes, they look bigger too – maybe ½ – 1 inch bigger in length and girth. And even when you’re flaccid, your penis looks the same sort of size as if you’d just had an erection.
BUT THE IMPORTANT THING TO REMEMBER is that these effects will last for only as long as you keep taking the pills.
What’s the Use Then?
If you’re not under any illusions that male enhancement pills will permanently add several inches to your penis, then there’s no harm in taking them at all.
In fact, the effects will in all likelihood impress both you and your partner.
But to achieve permanent penis enlargement of several inches takes a little bit more work than just popping a pill each day.
However, the good news is that penis pills can be used to speed up the process of a proper enlargement routine.
Combining Penis Pills with Exercise
Penile exercises work pretty well when done properly and methodically – but it can be a moderately slow process to achieve significant gains. With exercise it takes around 3 – 6 months of ‘working out’ 4 – 5 days a week to develop your penis to it’s full potential – which for most men ultimately equates to a gain of between 1 ½ and 2 ½ inches in length and 1 – 2 inches in girth.
A lot of men though, simply do not have the commitment or patience to follow this regime through to the end. They tend to give up after a couple of weeks before any noticeable improvements have been made, which is a real shame.
This is where penis pills seem to really help. They boost the effectiveness of exercise, producing the same results as exercise, but in a much reduced time frame.
So instead of achieving the average increase of around 2 inches in erect length in 3 – 6 months, you can probably expect to achieve the same in half the time – 1 ½ – 3 months – just by combining the two.
So…how do penis pills have such a powerful ‘synergistic’ effect when combined with exercise?
Put simply, whilst exercise provides the necessary physical stimulus for growth, penis pills help you to recover between each exercise session – which therefore, speeds up the growth process. It’s when you rest between workouts that gains are made (as the stressed penile tissues ‘repair’ themselves) and penis pills help this recovery process.
They optimise recovery through several mechanisms:
- By enhancing blood flow to the penis, penis pills ensure that the stressed penile tissues receive sufficient oxygen and nutrient rich blood to accelerate recovery.
- The enhanced blood flow also stretches your penis to its current maximum capacity during erection. This ensures that the steady gains you make through exercise don’t recede.
- Increased levels of testosterone also enhance recovery. Testosterone is an androgen hormone that increases protein synthesis and growth of tissues within the male reproductive system – most prominently during puberty. Of course, if you’re reading this you’re probably not going through puberty, but with the physical stimulus of penile exercise, protein synthesis within the stressed penile tissues is again encouraged by higher testosterone levels – resulting in additional growth.
- The psychological factor: Because penis pills can promote a moderate albeit temporary increase in penis size after a couple of weeks of use, this tends to give a huge motivational boost to your exercise efforts. You see your penis get bigger…and you develop a kind of, ‘I want it even bigger’ attitude.
Of course, exploiting this effect is dependent on three things:
- Using a well structured exercise routine.
- Using one of the better penis pills.
- Being prepared to stick with the program for at least a couple of months.
But if you do, you’ll be surprised at the significant size gains you’re able to realize much more rapidly than you’d be able to achieve through exercise alone.
The two most reputable penis pill manufacturers, VigRX Plus and Male Extra (reviews below) actually include very good exercise guides with their pills so that you really can maximize the effectiveness of this ‘dual combination’ approach – as you’ll learn below.
Which Pills Should You Choose?
There are a lot of competing brands and I’ve tried quite a few of the better known ones.
Quite frankly, most have zero effect – they do absolutely nothing to improve erection quality and therefore, will do nothing to boost the results you achieve through exercise.
There are a multitude of reasons most of these formulas don’t work – poor quality ingredients, ineffective doses of each ingredient, incorrectly combined ingredients…the list is almost endless. That’s why you’ll find competing brands with seemingly similar ingredients, some of which are useless, whilst others are effective.
The only brands you’ll find mentioned below are the ones I know from personal experience to have exceptionally positive effects – VigRX Plus and Male Extra.
Not surprisingly, these products are produced by reputable manufacturers who are well known not to cut corners on the development or production of their formulas.
Some of the things these two brands have in common are that:
- They are produced in pharmaceutical grade facilities to ensure total ingredient purity.
- The manufacturers use high quality ingredients – those that contain high levels of the ‘active compounds’ that make the ingredient effective in the first place.
- They contain ingredients in sufficiently high doses to make them effective
- The formulas have been properly researched and developed to include the correct quantities of each ingredient based on the results on independently conducted clinical trials.
VigRX PLUS – is manufactured by one of the most trusted companies in the male sexual health industry – Leading Edge Health. Their original VigRX formula was for over a decade the most popular male enhancement supplement available – simply because it worked extremely effectively. The formula was well known to have a very powerful mix of male sexual health boosting ingredients – which really did promote skin bursting erections.
With the introduction of the new VigRX PLUS the manufacturers have supercharged the original formula. They’ve left all the original ingredients intact in their original quantities and have added even more penile blood boosting and testosterone enhancing ingredients – producing a product that has an exceptionally potent mix of ingredients.
But it’s the addition of one new compound in particular, Bioperine, which really puts the VigRX PLUS formula at the cutting edge.
Bioperine is a newly patented compound that has been clinically developed to enhance the absorption (and therefore, the effectiveness) of the formula. In recent clinical trials researchers noted that the ‘absorption of nutrients increased dramatically when administered with Bioperine’ – in fact, clinical results showed that Bioperine enhances absorption by over 60 percent.
Without getting too technical, the addition of Bioperine means that your body is able to utilise significantly more of the formula – which multiplies its potency and effectiveness. At present, VigRX PLUS is the only male enhancement pill to include this unique ‘bioavailability enhancer’ – which is one of the reasons the product remains ahead of the competition.
In fact, a recent double-blind placebo controlled medical trial (independently conducted by Vedic LifeSciences) showed that the positive effects of VigRX PLUS are comparable to the pharmaceutical drug Sildenafil (the active compound in Viagra) – but without any of the negative side effects.
The 12 week clinical trial involving 75 men between 25 and 50 years of age (half of whom were given VigRX PLUS, the other half a placebo) showed that those given the supplement experienced significant improvements in erectile function, sexual desire and sexual satisfaction.
Amongst its findings, the study reported that the participants given VigRX Plus experienced:
- A 62.82 percent improvement in their ability to maintain an erection.
- A 71.43 percent increase in sexual and intercourse satisfaction rates.
- Positive effects on sexual health became more pronounced throughout the entire course of treatment.
- 90 percent of participants taking VigRX PLUS stated that they would continue using the supplement.
VigRX PLUS is actually the only male enhancement supplement to have been subjected to the scrutiny of medical trials – one of the many reasons I recommend it before all others.
You can learn more about these newly conducted medical trials on this page of the official VigRX Plus website.
But of course, if you’re looking to achieve more than just massively swollen erections, you’ll have to combine the use of VigRX Plus with a good penile exercise program.
If you buy four or more months supply of VigRX Plus, the manufacturer offers lifetime membership to their new ground breaking exercise program – Erection Fitness. As you’d expect from one of the leading male health companies, their exercise program is extremely well researched – offering a very concise and powerful 120 day intensive penile enlargement regime – which is a perfect supplement to VigRX Plus. Although its money well spent, the only down side to this deal is that it will set you back $267.99.
BUT if you go directly to the Erection Fitness site (you can read my review of Erection Fitness here) you get access to the exercise program and a FREE month’s supply of VigRX Plus for just $97 – which is ideal if you don’t want to make such a large investment.
Either way though, the combination of VigRX PLUS and Erection Fitness is a sure fire way to add 2 or more inches to your penis in just a couple of months; and with the addition of a genuine 67 day money back guarantee, there’s very little to lose but a lot to gain.
- The only male enhancement pill to have been subjected to human clinical trials.
- Clinically shown to dramatically improve erection quality.
- Unique absorption enhancing compound for increased effectiveness.
- Combined with the Erection Fitness exercise guide (read review), will produce permanent gains of 2 – 3 inches in erect penile size within 2 – 4 months.
- Full 67 day money back guarantee.
- High customer satisfaction rate – according to the manufacturers, less than 1 percent of customers request a refund.

Male Extra is another ‘next generation’ male enhancement pill, pharmaceutically produced with an advanced, clinically developed formula.
Male Extra is in fact, a relatively new supplement on the market and as such, doesn’t have the same proven track record as VigRX PLUS. But from my own experiences with this new pill, I can say that it produces very similar positive results – way ahead of the rest of the competition.
I’ve had the opportunity to try Male Extra for a month and the improvements to my erection quality were every bit as good as VigRX Plus. Like VigRX Plus, it does take a couple of weeks for the full effects to kick in – but once they do there’s no doubting the powerful penile blood boosting properties of Male Extra. These pills stretched by erection size to its absolute physical capacity; producing erections that were the best part of 2/3 of an inch longer and a good inch fuller – pretty impressive stuff.
The secret to Male Extra’s powerful effects seems to be due to its primary ingredient – Ellagic acid (a compound derived from pomegranates).
In fact, Ellagic acid has recently received a great deal of media attention because of its reported Viagra like properties; and Male Extra is the first ‘penis pill’ to incorporate large doses of this compound into its formula.
Ellagic acid actually promotes extremely powerful erections through the same physiological mechanism as Viagra. The compound increases levels of a molecule called nitric oxide in the penile tissues, which causes the penile arteries to expand wider than normal, which in turn allows higher volumes of blood to surge into the penis.
Researchers at the University of California recently published a medical study in the journal of Impotence Research that showed that just one glass of pomegranate juice a day was an effective treatment for mild to moderate erectile dysfunction and concluded that the active ingredient (Ellagic acid) was a natural but extremely powerful alternative to Viagra.
When you consider that a daily dose of Male Extra contains a highly concentrated level of Ellagic acid equivalent to 500 glasses of pomegranate juice, you get a good idea why this new pill is so effective at promoting Eiffel tower like erections.
Amongst its numerous ‘pro-sexual’ ingredients, Male Extra also includes high doses of another Viagra like compound – L-Arginine. Not surprisingly, the combined effect of Ellagic acid and L-Arginine puts this formula into overdrive – real volume turned up to 11 stuff!
But as I’ve mentioned several times on this page, the real benefit of Male Extra, or any other good quality penis pill for that matter (in terms of promoting permanent penile growth) can only be achieved by combining them with a high quality penile exercise program.
This is where Male Extra becomes a really good choice in my mind because every purchase (even just one month’s supply costing $75.95) includes a membership to the Penis Health exercise guide.
The reason I think this is a good bet is simply because I know from personal experience how powerful the Penis Health program is.
When I was starting out on what seemed like a very confusing journey to enlarge my penis, Penis Health was the guide that simplified everything and showed me exactly how to achieve my goals.
Before I used this guide, I’d experienced months of zero gains despite putting in a huge amount of effort, but within a few months of using this program I managed to achieve some pretty serious gains – an increase of about 1 ¾ inches in erect length and an increase in girth of over an inch. It really was the best investment I ever made; and considering that the guide now comes free with Male Extra, it’s an offer I would jump at if I was just starting out again. (If you want to read more this exercise program, you can read my brief Penis Health review here.)
So with Male Extra, you’re undoubtedly getting one of the most powerful pills available (producing results I’ve only ever experienced previously with VigRX Plus) as well as access to a really well structured exercise program.
Combine the two and I would think you’re going to make some really noticeable gains pretty quickly.
The only reason Male Extra is ‘ranked’ second here is simply because it’s pretty new on the market and as such, hasn’t built up the same long-term reputation as VigRX Plus. But I’d put my head on the block and say that it won’t be long before it catches up.
- Extremely powerful formula – as good as VigRX Plus
- All purchases come with the Penis Health exercise guide (if you’re only buying one or two boxes this makes it exceptionally good value).
- Comparable results to VigRX Plus when used in conjunction with Penis Health: 2 – 3 inch gain in erect penis size within 2 – 4 months.
- Better money back guarantee than VigRX Plus – try the product for 90 days and if it doesn’t live up to its promises you have up to 180 days to claim a full refund. (VigRX offers a 67 day money back guarantee in comparison.
- Manufactured by a well established company who are known to honour their money back guarantees.
- Similar refund rates reported as VigRX Plus – Less than 1 percent of customers request a refund.
Not Sure Which One to Choose?
So above I’ve detailed the two brands of penis pills that in my opinion you should choose between. But which one’s the best?
The simple answer is: They’re both equally good:
- They’re both far ahead of the competition
- They’re both provided with really good exercise guides
- They’re both produced by reputable companies.
I would say:
The things to consider when choosing VigRX Plus:
- VigRX Plus is the only male enhancement pill to have been tested in independent medical trials; and the results of those trials medically prove that it is effective.
- VigRX Plus has built up a very strong reputation and has a long track record of success.
- BUT VigRX Plus requires a purchase of 4 months supply before you get the Erection Fitness guide thrown in for free. If you’re only thinking of buying one month’s supply of VigRX Plus – make sure you buy through the Erection Fitness website because you’ll get both for just $97 at the moment.
- The ‘money back guarantee’ is a little tight on time – you have to use the product for 60 days and then return within 67 days.
The things to consider before buying Male Extra:
- Male Extra comes with a better guarantee – Try the product for 90 days and then return within 180 if you’re not satisfied (as opposed to just 67 days with VigRX Plus).
- Male Extra comes with the Penis Health exercise guide with ALL purchases – making it a much better deal than VigRX Plus if you’re just going to buy 1 – 3 months supply.
- BUT Male Extra is relatively new on the market. Although it is every bit as effective as VigRX Plus (I’ve tried it and can vouch for that) it hasn’t built up the same log-term reputation.
