Dear Sir, Few things to consider, Pregnancy is never a problem because of the volume of your sp.. Treat it as a seed. If you put hundreds of seed in 1 hole, may be 1 or few will take a shape of plant and may be one or none will survive. Even for that you need a seed which has potential and qualities. If you put a dead seed, will never grow. For the plantation you need a fertile land as well. Otherwise it's same as wasting sweet water into ocean. I would suggest you to see an specialist who will test both of you and will find the issue. Based on issue any treatment can be suggested otherwise improper usage of herbs may land you in bigger health problems.

Mostly enlargement or shortness is the state of your mind. Mostly people in your country sizes 4-5 inches even if they say they have 6 inches or more. If you are that range or even a little less that does not effect your sex life. Large like a donkey is also not going to please your wife. So be moderate, think moderate and be happy.
