First Post - Looking for Advice on 9 Day Old Injury
I’ve been doing stretches for a few months now and never really spent any serious time jelqing. I decided to give jelqing a shot over a week ago using a silicon based lube. I made sure that I wasn’t fully erect and did 3-4 second slow jelqs. At the time I did not think my grip was too tight but I’m starting to think I was mistaken. The next morning I woke up with weak morning wood and started having sex with my girlfriend. I’m usually a very horny guy and my penis being very sensitive, never had an issue finishing before. After about a minute or so I just noticed that the sensation really wasn’t there and my erection was weak. It’s been about a week or so and I haven’t done any stretching or jelqing. I have masturbated on occasion but with a very light grip and only stimulating just under the glans (I know I shouldn’t even do that).
It’s been a little over a week or so and I did a little more research into the possible causes of my injuries. I came across reports of venous leaks which seem to match up very similarly to my own experiences thus far. It wasn’t really affecting me that much but today it really hit hard. The possible outcome that an injury like this would have on my psyche and relationship is a pretty scary thing. I’ve told my girlfriend that I just masturbated too hard and she has been understanding (I’ve been getting her off other ways) but I can’t escape the thought that her being an attractive and younger (26) year old woman would lend to her wanting to move on if I can’t get an erection (somewhat understandably).
Anyways, I was going to wait a few more days before going to my GP and possibly getting a referral to a specialist but in the meantime I was hoping I could get some input from other members on the forum who have had a similar experience. Regarding the physical symptoms of the injury, there were virtually none. I had small read dots on the shaft and glans but they cleared up by the end of the day. The penis does seem to be a bit darker than usual but it is hard to say. I have not had a spontaneous erection since the incident although I have gotten it up after kissing although the erection didn’t last long and wasn’t that hard. When erect the penis is generally much smaller than usual until just before ejaculation when it gets pretty close to full size, although not quite as hard. Morning wood has been inconsistent (only 2-3 times over the past week or so). I am able to pump blood into the head and keep it there if focused but it takes a lot of focus. I noticed that on the base of my shaft itself there seems to be numbness for an inch or two, and even slight numbness if I follow the shaft down past the scrotum.
Has anyone had these types of symptoms and had it not be venous leakage? If so please give me some input because I’ve found myself having some dark thoughts at a few points today and I’d like something to keep my thoughts positive. Thank you in advance and I apologize for posting it to this section, it’s just that I’ve been a lurker for too long.
