Am I normal ?

Hello,
I am a 23 year old male, that is sexually active. I believe I am a grower.  My penis is exactly 2.0 inches flaccid, sometimes less (1.5) depending on whether or not its cold outside. My erection is between 4.0 and 4.5 inches (4.5 if erection is pointing straight out) . I have a slight curve to right, very minor  . Also, if I push down toward pubic bone near base of penis , my erection measures 5.0 inches.  A couple questions.
Are these normal measurements ?
How do I properly measure an erect penis?
Will I be able to satisfy a woman with my erection? or even flaccid state
Should I feel embarrassed about my penis size flaccid/erect state ? Lastly, please answer promptly and I would prefer a medical response from a "doctor"/ Urologist.

(not a doctor) I believe normal is any functional, erect penis size that ranges from 1" upwards.  The North American average (over a wide range) is a bit less than 6" (yours sounds typical).  

Women can find long penises painful (as those can bump into their cervix), thickness (girth) is likely of more interest to them but technique counts greatly, too.  No one can or should say what you should be embarrassed about (certainly, not about anything that is outside your control).
