It turns out that when it comes to the size of a male’s manhood, size really does matter.

A new study has now revealed that men with smaller penises tend to be less fertile.

The study says that those with fertility problems tend to have penises around a third of an inch shorter when erect, on average, than men without any issues.

The study researched 815 men going to a sexual health clinic over a span of three years.

As per the study men who were infertile had an average length of 4.92in compared to fertile men with 5.27in.

Speaking about it study leader Dr Austen Slade of the University of Utah, Salt Lake City, said, “It may not be a striking difference but there was a clear statistical significance.”

She further added that it remains to be determined if there are different penile length cut-offs that would predict more severe infertility.

Dr Slade said shorter penises could hint at problem with fertility but added it was nothing to be worried about.

He said that men with shorter penises don't need to worry about fertility.'

The findings were presented at the world's biggest fertility conference in Denver, Colorado, US.
