Downwards bend in erection
My erect penis has a fairly substantial downwards bend. I’ll try to post a pic soon. I’ve searched thoroughly, read a few threads, and seen pictures here, of people with similar downwards-pointing erections. It’s slightly comforting to know I’m not alone, and great to finally have a few answers, but I still have a few questions to ask in order to better understand my situation.
I’m 21 now, and remember having this bend as early as age 12. The strange thing is, I also remember *not* having it when I was 11. It used to be fairly straight, with a slight upwards curve (maybe 15 degrees above horizontal). I told this to a urologist who I saw when I was 17. He said it would probably take a fairly major injury to cause a ‘sudden’ change, and that I would clearly remember such an injury. This made sense to me. Since I couldn’t recall such an incident, and was already very embarrassed about the whole thing, I decided I’d just live with it, and didn’t pursue it further.
But since I clearly remember my erection being different a short time before I first noticed the bend, my mind has never truly been at ease. The urologist only examined my penis while flaccid, which I was relieved about at the time, not wanting to have to get an erection in the presence of a total stranger. But now that I think back, how could he have had any idea of how bent it actually was, or been able to tell if I had something like Peyronies or Chordee?
Could my wearing briefs (as I still do) while growing up, and being overly eager to hide my erections as a kid, have been factors? I know a lot of guys here with downwards curves blame briefs, but I can’t see how that alone could have transformed my erection from almost-straight and upwards-pointing to bent (fairly sharply) and downwards-pointing. (Surely lots of other guys grew up wearing briefs without this result?) Could I have bent it too hard in an attempt to hide an erection, and noticed the pain but not understood the significance of what I was doing at the time?
It seems to function fine, but I have never had sex before. I’ve often worried that it’s ‘too flexible’ when erect, in that I can move it around in all directions without any discomfort. It seems to be a bit less ‘rigid’ at the base than what I have seen in porn, if that makes any sense. I understand that, to a certain extent, it needs to be able to go in all directions for different sex positions (right?), but I’m concerned that it might not be ‘hard’ enough for sex. It seems a bit prone to ‘folding’ at the bend when I ‘simulate’ vaginal penetration.
Should I see a second urologist and insist on a more thorough examination? Any advice is appreciated. Thanks!
