I would appreciate if this could be moved to the injuries section, if that’s allowed. If not, cool.
So, I stupidly bought a cheapo pump with no gauge and used it 4-5 times over the course of a couple of weeks. Never for more than 5 minutes at a time or so but I don’t know what the pressure was. The last time I used it - 8 days ago - I planned on having sex later in the day. I was able to get an erection, but just before sex went completely limp. Later that night I jerked off to test things but it took a bit to become anywhere near hard, and it wasn’t easy - stupid part #2. The next day I was sore, but there were no broken blood vessels or bruising or anything like that. I have been pretty much hands off since then thanks to the advice I have read here.
Since then, I have not been able to get an erection. I have gotten a few erections while sleeping in the past few days but they are like 60-70%. It feels good and there is no pain. It’s just not in the slightest bit interested in getting hard while I am awake.
I have never had any troubles like this before. Does this sound like a serious injury? Is the fact that I was able to get hard later in the day after pumping a sign that I have not injured myself permanently, I hope? I know I probably sound like a neurotic fool to anyone who has been doing this for awhile, but I have never dealt with something like this before. Thanks to anyone who can help.
