My effects of PE thus far good, bad, and neutral
I’m into my third week of PE. I’m doing the newbie routine more or less. I started out not seeing any swelling after PE except for one time during the first week. I was concerned about my jelqing technique, my lube situation and the fact that I could not stay semi erect for more than 10-15 jelq reps at most.
More recently right after PE my flaccid hang has a noticeable amount more of girth (about .15 inches more than my starting EG and about .4 inches more than my starting FG). It stays this way for about 20 minutes or so and then it subsides a bit and I retain some slight swell for the next day or two. I also notice that I tend to have a harder erection right after a PE exercise. I have switched my warmup technique from a hot wash cloth to a rice sock and I’ll never look back. I bought some personal lube KY jelly knockoff and it stays lubed up for much longer. When it does seem to wear out I have a container of warm water at my side to quickly dip my hands to to re-lube since it is water based. I have also gotten much better at keeping my erection up longer and incorporated kegels when I felt like I needed to get some extra blood in there.
I have a spot or two on my shaft from getting too rough one session but its been going away. When I do stretches my glans turns purple, my shaft shrinks and when I get my erection right after to do jelqs, it looks shorter at first. Also when I am jelqing, I really only feel good pressure when I’m about half way up my shaft and I believe explains why after a session I get the “baseball bat” effect where my base looks normal and from midway up is all swelled. After the initial swell it seems to distribute more evenly but I still am pretty sure I am only working out the top half and will only see girth gains on that part. Now yesterday something new happened. I developed that “donut” or “spare tire” right at the top of the shaft below my glans. It lasted as long as the initial swell and went away.
I had to take a few days off in a row more than once and I noticed that I did not have any permanent gains from what I could tell. I’m guessing it’s still too early to expect that.
My point to all this:
I think I may be on the right path but I need to figure out how to stop the discoloration in my glans and figure out how to better target the base of my shaft. Any suggestions welcome!
A side note: I’m really trying to focus on girth.
