Swelling in the penis - limits hanging.

Swelling in the penis - limits hanging.

//With the advice of ThunderSS I created this new thread here since I don’t have enough posts yet. And also following his advice, I would like to ask to move it to “Injuries / Treatments” sub-forum, if that’s possible. Thank you in advance. Here is my post:

“I didn’t know where to post but this seems the most fitting thread. It’s possible that I’ve missed a similar topic so If somebody could refer me to it, I would appreciate that greatly.

I’ve been reading “thunders” and doing PE for quite a while. The problem that I have appeared early in my journey and persisted until now, however recently it became a “dead-end” factor. I only hang, and I would think I hang gently, but no matter how many factors I play with, no matter how careful and persistent I am I still get a swollen dick after 2-3(20 minute each) sessions of hanging. This swelling makes the following sessions(I try to manage at least 5-6 sessions to reach 2 hours a day) very problematic, sometimes impossible. The veins become inflated and dick itself gradually becomes sort of soft and spongy. It also prolongs my PE time to a ridiculous 7-8 hours, because I have to wait an hour or more between sessions for the dick to “deflate” to become “hangable”. Out of those 7 hours I only manage to hang for 1.5-2 if I am lucky.What a waste of time, and inefficiency!( It also effects my next day of hanging, often forces me to take breaks(which is not good since ligaments get stronger), because swelling persists to the next day making my dick look more massive(which is good) but at the same time making it impossible to “deflate” it to an acceptable state for hanging, no matter how long and how creatively I try to draw blood out of it.
I think one explanation could be that I never gave my penis enough time to heal and therefore one stress on my veins is followed after another without a full recovery. However I don’t see how it is possible to completely avoid swelling, because even after long breaks it returns as soon as I start hanging. I don’t like to miss days and to be unproductive, PE became sort of a absolutely-need-to-do things on my day-list( I hope you understand me guys). To summarize: I feel very ineffective and discouraged since my ligaments don’t get an appropriate stretch because my penis’s circulatory systems gives up first.

So my question to you is : Am I only one who is limited in the amount of hanging because of the circulatory system issues in the penis and If somebody had the same problem, how one overcame it? Thank you for reading, for I know everyone’s time is valuable.”

If you have tried varous ways of trying to prevent the problem and they don’t work. Then it would seem that hanging is not for you. YOu may have injured yourself at sometime and the injury persists.

WHy not try something different and see if that causes problems. If not then a change of exercise is indicated.

Psst! The link is at the bottom of the page :bigwink:

You mentioned before that you attach the hanger “very far from the head, as far as I can - because if I follow ‘1 inch behind the glands’ rule I get pain in the head.”

That is likely the problem. If you are attaching nearer the base and tightening enough so that the CC’s are supporting the load, you’re essentially doing Extreme Uli’s, which would explain the skin bloating. Everything in front of the hanger is under pressure.

Hanging is hard to learn but relatively simple once you get the hang of it (ugh). There’s more involved in attaching a hanger than where on the shaft it is initially placed.

Here are a couple of my older posts that might be helpful:

hobby - Question for Bib or other hangers
hobby - Circumsized vs. Uncut Hanging

Since this seems to be more of a hanging issue than an “injury,” I’m moving this thread to the hanging forum. It should get more exposure there and hopefully more input.

Ever tried jelqing between sets? You said you only hang so I’m assuming not. It is really a good idea to dry jelq between sets and often that can even out swollen areas.

Yeah I have a question about that too. I hang in the morning before I go to work, since it’s the only time everyone else is asleep. I don’t have a lot of time to wait for my damn dick to go soft, so I just jack off real quick. Instead of taking about 30-45 minutes to get the hanger on, it takes 10-15. Do you think this has a big impact on gains? I’ve heard conflicting answers on this..

Also, my head can get pretty blue sometimes, but I haven’t figured out a way to not have that, while tightening the hanger to have a good grip. When I take off the hanger after the 20 minute session, it always returns to it’s normal color though. Am I internally fucking myself up, or is this okay?

Thank you so much for the response guys. Dang it, I am so frustrated with this issue, because I just recently realized the real way to gain with hanging and I would like to persist with hanging for at least 3 months(I’ll be living with my gf after that). But I keep getting blood circulation problems :(

I get your idea and it sounds reasonable, but how exactly(technically) do I avoid doing Ulis regardless of where I position the hanger on the shaft? It’s interesting, since I never had such a big blood circulation issue before and the weights haven’t changed much ( I only reached 9 pounds) as well as my hanger(which is a Bib starter). I am confused on what might cause the constant overstress of the circulatory system in the penis. To be honest I didn’t experiment much with the width of the hanger’s gaps, however I though I have found a relatively comfortable grip, since I have no pain in the shaft during hanging.

Thanks for an advice. Before, I did try to dry jelq between sets but based on the feeling and my logic it’s counter-efficient in my case: my problem is not lack of blood in the penis for a long period of time(which is how it used to be in the beginning of my PE carrier) but on the contrary the excess of it pressuring my glands for longer then needed. So in between sets I massage but don’t jelq, to get the blood-flow evened out but mainly to get the blood out of the head.

I started taking little amounts of aspiring to prevent inflammation to finish hanging session, however I know that this is not a solution for a problem.

How big is your dick? Exactly how far back are you attatching your hanger from your head? What kind of wrap are you using? Is it loose or tight?

A few questions that will help us help you.


10/2008 BPEL= 6.5" NBPEL= 6" EG= 5"

6 month goal: NBPEL= 6.75" EG= 5.25"

Main Goal: NBPEL= 8" EG= 6"

A few questions that will help us help you.

1)NBPEL - 6.3 in.
2)Actually, now thinking about it, I attach the hanger about 1-1.5 inch behind the head, because my flaccid size is not so spectacular and if I attach further out, my balls get cought into the hanger’s parts.
3)I wrapping with a regular bandage type tape (CVS brand) of about 30in stretched length(I find that if I use a new non-stretched bandage It constricts the blood flow to much). On top of it I wrap with a Thera-band type material of about 14 in long.
4)If I manage to get the all blood out(penis becomes wrinkled like harmonics:) ) and sort of hard) then I wrap as tight as possible because like I said my bandage wrap has no tension (it’s strechted) . I use a paper clip to secure the bandage and scotch tape to secure the Thera-band on top of it. I can’t realy judge the tightness, for all I know it doesn’t slip when I put a hanger on it.

Another thing is that I am using cold air to deflate my penis. I open my window and doors in-between sets to create an air flow in the room, to thinner the blood vessels. I also realize this might be dangerous but I can’t reach the truly flaccid state otherwise. I noticed that after about the 4th set something happens inside, because I suddenly feel warmth inside the glands where it was cold a minute ago and the penis becomes unusually soft and spongy. Seems like the capillaries burst, and there is minor internal bleeding, however there are no signs of it on the outside. This scares me and I am forced to finish earlier, even though I know that at least 6 sets(2 hours) are productive and now I have wasted of about 4-5 hours.

Do you start getting engorged after you wrap and before you start hanging? If so, loosen your wrap. It shouldn’t be hard at all to get the blood out of the head before a set unless you’re aroused.

Other than that, I don’t really know to tell you. If you really think you’re bleeding internally give it a rest, do a little more research and try again once you’ve healed.

Thank you very much, for the answer. I guess that’s what I will have to do, unfortunately :_(

And my last thought. I just watched drawing on how to wrap by Bib. I wrap completely different:I don’t wrap my whole shaft, just a little part of it closer to the base; I pull all my skin out(I am uncut) and hold it like that, then I wrap at the base. So the bigger part of my shaft(the one that gets swelled) is unwrapped. Could this be a problem?

Please read my latest posts and threads ( I have one on hanger attachment) on this section of the forum and see if you can find anything that helps:

/forum/search.php?searchid=2372455

Your wrap should be loose. Not loose enough to fall off obviously, but it should be so loose that you could have worn it for 24 hours with zero circulation problems. It is the hanger that is supposed to grasp your penis, not the wrap. The wrap should NEVER be tight.

Also, I used to hang with a plug (blood in front of the hanger) and I could never believe it possible to do otherwise, but here I am and I hang very comfortable at higher weights and no plug.

Try to use some ice cubes on your balls to see if that makes you flaccid. Cooling down your actual penis is not good. I also had this very problem myself (getting erections while hanging and it took me forever to hang), but once I got into the routine and my body learned that it was work, not pleasure, it went away.

Good luck!

Thank you very much for your post. Your suggestions make sense. As soon as I recover, I will use them. However on using ice-cubes for your balls: have you experienced any side effects? I mean I know sperm favors the temperature of 2-3 degrees less then the body temperature, but we are talking about ice cubes here. Anyway, exposing my whole package to the wind is not a “healthy” option also.

Yeah, recover first, then hang ;)

I have not used ice-cubes myself, but I do not think it is dangerous. Remember, you are only using them until the hanger and weights are attached.

What I have done in the past and which is less extreme, is to use the cold metal weights against my balls. It usually helped. However, the morning is special. Your testosterone is at its peak at this time, so you will almost by default have an erection to some degree.

Stressing about losing the erection usually makes it worse :D

Do you need to hang early in the morning?

Levko, Although the Bib Starter was designed to be as easy as possible on the circulatory and lymphatic systems of the penis, it by necessity causes trauma simply because it places the tissues under so much pressure.

Playing with the wrap might help. Also, playing with the top and bottom gaps may help. I found this configuration, /o\, to be much easier on the penis than either of these configurations: \o/ or |o|.

Another option is to switch to a vacuum hanger. With some practice, you can certainly hang 9#. If you learn how to wrap with a vacuum hanger, you can up to 15 or 20#. You may find that much more comfortable.

Also, avoid getting sucked in to the mentality that says that hanging always works and it’s a simple matter of physics. It is not. Hanging doesn’t work for everybody; it didn’t work for me. I say make some adjustments, give it some more time, and if you don’t see clear progress, switch to another form of PE.
