urologist talks about PE
Hello everyone, I am new here and this is my first and only message. I am a MD currently in my urology residency. I tried PE for three years in college and medical school before I learned about the possible dangers involved.
Before I get into this, I will speak shortly about the mechanisms of penile erection in layman’s terms. The penis is able to sustain an erection because of one-way valves which allow blood in, but do not allow blood to flow out. If these valves are damged, they often do not grow back very well, and if damaged severely enough, may cause permanent decrease in erection rigidity.
PE may damage the penis in such a way as to destroy these valves. When PE participants report that they need to take breaks due to a decrease in ability to achieve healthy erection, this is possibly a direct result of this valve damage. Although the penis can often repair itself adequately enough to restore good function after such damage has occured, this is not always the case. Permanent damage is very possible.
As far as the excercises noted for enlargement, manual stretching is probably ok, and may even produce some length gains. (In three years I gained .2 inches) The girth excercises such as jelqing and squeezing, however, are probably not a good idea. To obtain the necessary engorgement to stretch these delicate tissues, would require a degree of force which is likely to cause damage to the penile valves. (I gained no girth and permanently decreased my erection rigidity)
I am posting this message because I wish I would have known what I do now so many years ago. Don’t make the same mistakes I did. If you read this and decide that I am full of shit, I would advise that you find some urology and radiology jounals and do some reading on your own before you making any further desicions regarding these methods.
