Jelqing Injury Help Please
Summary: I hurt myself jelqing. I saw a urologist after a month and he told me he didn’t think I did any permanent damage and to leave my dick alone mostly but test sex out gradually until fully healed. I am still having some pain over a month later and want advice.
I apologize that this isn’t in the injury forum, I haven’t posted enough to post this there.
At the end of October 2015 I injured myself jelqing by squeezing too hard and likely doing sessions that were far too intense. I felt kind of a jolt in my glans and then the sensation subsided. I had been doing manual exercises since April of 2015.
Over the next couple of days, one specific spot on the underside of the head felt sore in a way that I should have listened to and stopped all PE until it went away. I did not. I kept jelqing, stretching, and edging regularly for another two weeks before I listened to the pain in the head, which by that point was rather persistent and distracting, this is mid November.
I stopped having sex with my partner and stopped masturbating. At the beginning of December, I saw a urologist who I told that I had been PEing and asked him to help me with my injury. He immediately told me PE is a scam and that he hopes I didn’t pay any money for anything etc. I didn’t want to get into an argument with him about the gains I have had myself, let alone all the reports on here, so I said “ok sure doc, just fix me up alright?”
The urologist inspected me and pointed out one spot on the glans, where the discomfort occurs, and said it looks a little inflamed but other than that he thinks I am fine. He told me to try having sex and see how I feel after. If it hurts, he said wait two weeks and try again. Repeat until fully healed.
It has now been 6 weeks since I saw the doctor. I am usually pain free or just experience some slight irritation, but the pain does come and go sometimes throughout the day. It feels like a dull ache or an intense itchiness on one small, slightly reddish spot on my dick head maybe the size of a sesame seed. I get plenty of night time erections and I can have sex with my partner without discomfort. Any irritation seems to come on without correlation to whether or not I had sex. Tight pants or my dick getting crushed into the side of my leg when sitting seem to cause the most discomfort.
Has anyone experienced anything like this before? Does anyone think I should see another doctor since the pain is still there, or is this a type of injury that may just take a frustratingly long time to heal? The doctor didn’t give me an actual diagnosis for what I did, any idea what I actually did to the tissue in the glans?
Thanks in advance, especially if you read the whole story. I know this injury is my fault, especially because I was not using appropriate caution with respect to my intensity and grip. If I return to PE when healed I will be much more careful. But first I just want to have my dick feel 100% normal again.
