Hoping PE helps me
I’m hoping that PE exercises will help me.
About three years ago, at the age or 35, I had a urinary tract infection. It’s rare in men, but when they do happen they are pretty bad. Mine got completely out of control and spread to my prostate. The first doctor prescribed sulfa and then went on vacation. It turned out that I was allergic to sulfa. I went from bad to worse, had severe fever and hives. I went to the emergency room, and they just gave me some pain killers and the bum’s rush.
By the next day, I couldn’t even pee any more and my fever was at 104f . A family member who is a nurse in another state convinced my wife over the phone to call a urologist and tell them that we had an emergency and needed to see them immediately.
We got in with him right away. By this time, I was semi-delirious and don’t remember much of the visit. They gave me an injection of antibiotics and a prescription for Levaquin and some alpha blocker. They were going to put me in the hospital, but we persuaded them to let me go home instead; with the caveat that if I didn’t improve, I’d go to the hospital.
We went home and the fever broke about 4hrs later. I got the first good sleep I’d had in a couple weeks.
By the next day I could finally pee, but not without a lot of discomfort.
Slowly, the infection went away and I was left with a painful case of prostatitis that lingered for a year and still flares up occasionally.
During the first year, I was just happy to be able to pee. Sex was out of the question since I couldn’t perform, but I managed to masturbate a couple times a month (doctors orders were; “.. As often as possible”).
Up until about six months ago, nocturnal erections and morning wood simply didn’t happen. I would dribble after urination, and sex was a chore.
My health has finally returned to the point that I get morning wood, and sex is a lot more interesting to me. I have noticed that my penis has shrunk. It used to be 6.5” long (without pressing the ruler against the bone) it is now 6” (ruler pressed tight).
I’m thinking that if it can shrink, it can also get bigger. So here I am.
I found this site by searching the web. I had seen articles before about jelqing and had even tried it a little in the past, but wasn’t dedicated enough to get anywhere.
My goals now are to:
1.Try to improve health, fitness, and erection quality.
2.Regain, if possible, my previous size.
3.If I find that I can make progress, I will happily try to make it bigger than before.
I started PE a couple days ago, and found that the newbie routine is a bit much for me. My unit wants to turtle up at all but the most gentle force. So I am just trying to be very easy on it. Eventually it will get better.
I have seen benefits from Kegels already. It must be improving circulation.
I have spent hours reading on this site so far, and to say that I am impressed would be an understatement. What a great site.
