There's got to be a way to strengthen the suspensory ligament

There's got to be a way to strengthen the suspensory ligament

I’m losing weight (went down a full pants size in a month+ :D ), I feel great, but I see absolutely no difference in erectile quality. Not even a tiny indicator that there could be a correlation with weight. I still can’t get or maintain an erection without touching my penis. I can easily see myself attempting to have sex again and losing my erection shortly after penetration begins. I have a ton of Viagra, it works just ok (even at 200mg), and it’s causing me a trauma of dependence already. The fact I would need a chemical boost everytime I engage in sexual activity is bothering me.

The only thing I can come up with as to what my problem is.. is that I have extensive suspensory lig damage. I’ve done the reading and my problem matches problems I’ve read about. My penis is barely anchored by the body, only raises to about 4 o’clock the brief period I can get hard (low erection angle), and it’s flexible/loose at the base. I’ve tried everything I possibly can on my own to correct my ED woes except for one thing. I think if I stop my masturbating/edging, I may get some sensitivity back…but how long would I have to wait to see a change? Even with that, I forsee only mild improvement. It seems without a constant rush of blood to the shaft, I’ll always be in penile purgatory when it comes to wood.

Anybody have any suggestions? Collagen injections into the lig? Ultrasound therapy? Some special kind of topical ointment? A radical type of surgery that exists?

Suggestion = go see a urologist. I would guess that surgery is the only way to correct a damaged ligament. You are on the right track with losing weight though… the most common cause of ED is vascular, thus decreasing weight/ blood pressure/ lipids should have a positive effect.

Penile ligaments may have something to do with erection angle, but they are not involved when it comes to erections. Having ligament surgery would not fix this. There are all kinds of other reasons for ED and if you haven’t seen a urologist already, you should follow fourofakind’s advice.

Cutting back on masturbation would probably help, but that would depend on what the problem is. Doppler flow studies or other tests would likely give you a definitive diagnosis. Until you have that, it’s really difficult to say what actions would help.

Congratulations on your weight loss, but the only thing that might help with is allowing more of your erection to show. Losing weight won’t cure ED.

See a physician. Good luck.

The bottom line is to see a doctor. To clarify, I was not suggesting it was a cure. Decreasing risk profile is however, a positive step. At the very least it may decrease further damage and at best it is possible to reverse some of the effects of vascular disease. Of course it is possible that another mechanism is causing the ED, I only mentioned the most common. Back to the bottom line —> urologist.

“Pathophysiology of erectile dysfunction

ED is essentially a vascular disease. It is often associated with other vascular diseases and conditions such as diabetes, hypertension, and coronary artery disease. Other conditions associated with ED include neurologic disorders, endocrinopathies, benign prostatic hyperplasia, and depression. Conditions associated with reduced nerve and endothelium function, such as aging, hypertension, smoking, hypercholesterolemia, and diabetes, alter the balance between contraction and relaxation factors. These conditions cause circulatory and structural changes in penile tissues, resulting in arterial insufficiency and defective smooth muscle relaxation. In some patients, sexual dysfunction may be the presenting symptom of these disorders.

Additionally, ED is often an adverse effect of many commonly prescribed medications. Some psychotropic drugs and antihypertensive agents are associated with ED.

Trauma that affects the neurologic or vascular components can also lead to ED. Men with severe Peyronie disease, an inflammatory vasculitis, may have enough scar tissue in the corpora to impede blood flow. Men with sleep disorders commonly experience ED.

Another important consideration is the hormonal status of the patient. Hypogonadism that results in low testosterone levels adversely affects libido and erectile function. Hypothyroidism is a very rare cause of ED.

Most patients with ED have multiple etiological factors; thus, assessing how much each is contributing to the problem is difficult. Because most men with ED have an organic cause, a thorough evaluation is necessary to correctly identify the specific etiology in any given individual.”

Maybe power yoga will help.

You learn breathing techniques and you have to flex your arse when you have breath out.

Yesterday I did it and I woke up with a rockhard erection and I think the effects of yoga caused it.

It gets you superrelaxed which can help with your erections.

(Real man dare to do poweryoga ;) )

I, can, I can, I can not, can not compute..

Just because you went down a pants size and nothing has change doesn’t rule out that its due to weight. One month is not enough time for the body to have repaired the damage to the vascular system that be over weight can cause. Loosing the weight was the easy part.

Forget the ligs - nothing to do with ed imo.

Later - ttt

If they’re able to help you, so that you can get and maintain a full, hard erection, and after that your angle is still low. Then it would be appropriate to suspect ligament damage/stretching.

Dead link :-(

Don’t guys get lengthening surgery that completely cuts the ligs, yet they still get erections? I have to agree with TTT and Westla. Lig damage could effect angle, but not erection hardness.

Horny Bastard

I agree, but I think that ligament strength (and angle) are still very important
