Bruised area on glans from hanging.
I’ve hanged for around 1 month now. I started at 5 lbs (20min x 3) & moved up to 8 lbs (20min x 3) in two weeks, and to 8lbs for 2 hours/day prior to receiving my bib starter.
I just received my bib starter & moved up to 10lbs (20 min x 3 - twice per day; am & pm session).
At this point I cannot complete a second hour at 10 lbs (20min x3). I feel a sharp pain in my glans & I’m forced to drop to 8lbs until uncomfortable. This usually happens before the second hour is up.
At the end of a workout my glans looks very bruised, but I lose no sensation. I get morning wood with no problem. If I chose to, I could masturbate at the end of such a hanging sesssion.
My question focuses on these three areas:
Have I simply moved up too much weight too quickly? I’m considering resting with only jelqing until normal color returns. Once that happens I’ll spend 2 hrs/day hanging at 8lbs for at least one month.
Could this be a wrapping issue? I use a 1.5 inch strip from an old cotton shirt, with a similar strip of theraband over it. I noticed the pain seems to have decreased a bit since i trimmed a few inches from my cotton wrap.
Could this be a bib starter application issue? I’m 5.5 x 5.5. I have the bottom adjustment bolts spaced out a bit. I tend to get fluffed while mounting the hanger & this might affect seating in the hanger.
FINALLY, last question: Is this something that everyone goes through as “growing pains”? I’ve searched for discoloration posts & most mention coloring around circumcision scars from jelqing.
I think I read a post from bib about discoloring of the glans, but I hoped to clear up some information here.
**I didn’t think this should go into injuries as its not a real injury (yet).
