Penis-lengthening surgery is also an option for men, but it is a highly controversial procedure. The American Urological Association says a common form of lengthening surgery (involving cutting the suspensory ligament of the penis) has not been shown to be safe or effective. The group also refuses to endorse surgeries that inject fat cells in the penis with the goal of increasing penile girth.
Such breakthroughs call to mind the myriad of alternate products — some legit, many not — that men attempt to use before they take traditional erectile dysfunction medications or undergo erectile dysfunction surgery. So how do you discern the truth from the hype when it comes to non-medical erectile dysfunction treatments? We asked experts to weigh in on what works and what's a waste.

Richard, a mechanic from upstate New York, is a muscular, athletic guy. He has a loving wife who has always enjoyed their sex life. But ever since he was a young boy, Richard couldn't get over the feeling that his penis was too small. In public bathrooms, he'd use the handicapped stall. He felt embarrassed in gym locker rooms and when standing naked before his wife. "I didn't feel manly enough," he tells WebMD.
