Firmer flaccid but better erections?
I’ve been jelqing on and off for several years and until 7 months ago have never committed to a routine. During these 7 months things have been going great, made some gains ( I don’t measure mostly doing this for EQ) and had fun learning about techniques and experimenting with my own routine. I am however experiencing some weird side effects that started to appear a few weeks ago.
The first thing is that my flaccid has been much firmer, sort of feels like a small rubber garden hose- not rock hard but also not squishy like it usually is. This isn’t that big of a deal by itself, but it makes jelqing much harder as my penis seems rigid and doesn’t want to stretch. Second, my erections have been the biggest I can remember and so hard it almost hurts sometimes. This is very odd for me as usually my EQ is poor and only improves when I haven’t masturbated for about a week. I searched “hard flaccid” but this doesn’t seem like my case because my erections have actually improved and my penis seems bigger than before.
There are two things that I’m looking at for a possible cause for the changes. #1 I’ve been jelqing at a higher erection (but still not %100) and with more pressure for the last few weeks. #2 I’ve been diagnosed with low magnesium/high calcium through a hair mineral analysis and have been taking a magnesium supplement since around the time this all started.
Maybe I injured myself with higher erection jelqs and the firm rigid flaccid is my penis going into protection mode, but then shouldn’t my erections be worse? Or maybe my body is reacting to finally getting adequate amounts magnesium and my penis is going through changes of some sort, but shouldn’t magnesium relax my flaccid more? What do you guys think of my situation?
