Need advice due to gains-loses
Hey Everybody. I”ve been lurking for almost 3 months and have decided I need to post to find a better direction concerning my PE. I started PE when I came across another website with stretching and jelqing (can’t remember the name of the site). Finally, I came across this site which offered allot more detailed information on PE. I did PE for about 3 weeks before starting the actual newbie routine. First, I started just jelqing when I was bored or felt like masturbating. I noticed a pretty good increase in erection status and this is what excited me to continue because I’m not well hung and like every other man I wanted a larger penis. Once I started the newbie routine (3 weeks after my masturbation/jelqing) I noticed I was coming with even better gains (around 1/2 length and 1/4 girth). *This is where the problem begins. As a newbie, I was confident that I had conditioned my penis enough and should try clamping ( 5 weeks after starting PE). I continued with the newbie routine 3 days on/ 1 day off, with adding 3x 5-8min. Clamping sessions while clamping every other day( maybe clamping 3 days a week tops). At that point I had seen even bigger gains and a massive erection. I was confident with where PE was taking me and happen to just meet a new girl in my life. *This is where the problem comes to surface. I noticed one evening we were together and I couldn’t get an erection. I thought maybe this was due to the heavy consumption of alcohol ( I’m sure the booze had some impact). I brushed it off that evening with only to find the next time we where together it happened again! WTF I thought, this chick probably is getting turned off by my limp penis. Finally, I realized the alcohol was playing a small role in this erectile dysfunction problem because we managed to have pretty good sex a few times after this while I was not intoxicated. All the while, I’m still doing the newbie routine, clamping, and started ballooning after a few a my newbie sessions. So I clamped last weekend and noticed somewhat of a uncomfortable pain down on the left side of my penis near the base. Not really painful, but enough for me to take the clamps off in fear. Then, my next jelqing session I felt this pain again. It’s not really pain, It’s more of a lingering uncomfortable feeling between my scrotum and base shaft on the left side ( left side me looking down at my penis). Also, I noticed mid-shaft on the left side there is somewhat of a bump. I can’t tell if this is skin or possibly thrombosis vein. That part doest hurt though, just the area between the scrotum and base shaft ( almost feels like the spermatic cord area?). Anyway, now I’ve stopped clamping and jumped back to the newbie routine in the last week. *The Problem* This last week I’ve been observing my penis and have noticed my erections are somewhat weaker, I can’t hold my erections long at all (possible erectile dysfunction or impotence), the pain is still lingering on my left side(** I notice the pain more when doing kegels sometimes), and I’ve lost about half my gains. Now I’m scared that I have damaged my penis. Do you guys think it’s possible to have permanently damaged my penis in this short of time? I was only clamping for a month. I know I should take a break definitely from PE until my member is feeling strong and erectile again. How long should I break? Is there any methods to help my penis heal quicker? How long should I wait to see a doctor? I am a 23 year old male and should be at my prime sexually and am willing to give up PE as long as it takes to feel strong again. Also, is it normal for my erections to feel this way since I’ve conditioned my penis? The reason I stuck with clamping is because I noticed my penis erections where ultra strong in the beginning and there was great gains. Now it seems I can’t even hold the erection for more than 10 seconds without being continually stimulated. Should I still do kegels to cure the impotence even though I notice the uncomfortable pain more while doing kegels? I know this is a long post and I hope some of you experienced members can guide me to getting better. Ultimately, I wish for my erections to get strong and hope to continue PE (with the newbie routine only for starts) when everything seems normal again. Any feedback appreciated.
