Hey everyone, concerns with injuries and long term problems with jelqing
Hi, I am new to this forum and am very impressed with the quality and depth of info. I started out on a pay-site and I had been PEing for about one month before I injured myself. It resulted in severe ball soreness for a week and a few days almost uninterrupted. Also it felt as if there was a cut on my shaft and it was really painful to the touch.I put polysporin (antibiotic cream) on it, seems to be ok but still soreness. The day of injury I did 200-300 PC (or BC) flexes held for 3s sets of 25 throughout day, 40 wet jelqs fully erect, 40 horizontal movement, (reverse jelqs) 15 stretches each straight out, pulling to left and right, sit down stretch (BTC? Trying to sit down on the head of your penis so that it is partially under you) for 40seconds
1) Was this over-exertion?
2) How do I heal this problem?
Also, after this injury I did more research on potential problematic effects of long term PE.
I found lots of info:
” Another method widely promoted as both “natural” and “ancient” is called “jelqing” and involves stroking the penis. Proponents say you can gain up to four inches in length with this technique, but urologists attribute any change in size to swelling caused by bleeding under the skin triggered by the prescribed jelqing “exercise”. Urologists also warn that in time, this technique could cause formation of scar tissue in the penis, which could interfere with the ability to get an erection.”
“Caution: Jelqing is inherently dangerous, and even if done correctly can cause injuries, from irritated skin and burst blood vessels to scarring and impaired penile function, including partial loss of erectile function and inability to maintain an erection. It should not be attempted by anyone without a complete understanding of the risks involved. There have been warnings that one possible cause of the growth is the presence of scar tissue caused by the exercise, which may harm penile function.”
All of these people PEing cannot be wrong! Help me out!
Thanks, sorry for long post.
