Take a look out our latest infographic. It’s packed full of totally shocking facts about man’s private parts. For example, did you know that one teaspoon of sperm equates to seven calories!?


In our foetal state within the womb, men and women all start out with the same genitalia, until the male sex hormone kicks in and the group of nerve endings grows into a penis. This same group of nerve endings goes on to become the clitoris in women. 49.2 percent of the UK population may have one, but how much do any of us really know about the humble penis?

Here at TCM HealthCare we spend our days helping men to use their penises to do what nature intended: procreate. Fertility problems are incredibly stressful and certainly not to be laughed at, but every now and then it’s good to lighten the mood a little. Stress can compound the problem so take a step back from the situation for a moment and enjoy our fun and unusual facts about male genitalia…

For example, did you know that one teaspoon of semen contains seven calories? Or how about the fact that smoking can reduce the length of the penis by up to 1cm? If ever there were a reason to quit smoking, that’s it!

Physical health and penis health go hand in hand. If you’ve been having trouble getting or maintaining an erection recently then take a look at your lifestyle. Not getting enough sleep, not exercising enough, eating an unhealthy diet, and carrying too much weight all affect a man’s testosterone levels. Lower levels of testosterone can contribute to erectile dysfunction and fertility problems so it’s important to look after yourself if you’re trying to start a family.

TCM HealthCare is a specialist fertility clinic in London, with a great deal of experience helping couples to overcome their fertility problems and fulfil their dreams of parenthood. If you and your partner have been actively trying to conceive for a year or more without success then one or both of you may need a little help from our experts to boost your fertility.
