Darkening of the Shaft

Darkening of the Shaft

Hi guys,

I have been pumping for a few weeks now. When I first started I eased into it but after just about a week i was pumping at over 10+ hg pressures. My penis started turning very dark but I continued to pump until one day i realized a small bit of blood coming out of my pee hole with the lymph fluid after pumping. I took a few days off. When i went back into it i pumped at about 6 hg and after the session again i noticed a SAMLLER bit of blood. I took another day off, went back to it and noticed a VERY small amount of blood (my lymph fluid had a SLIGHT SLIGHT red tint). THis time i only pumped at about 5 hg for no more than 10 minutes.

Lesson i’ve learned. Please listen to the advice on the forums and when they say EASE INTO IT. They mean EASE INTO IT. My penis has turned SIGNIFICANTLY darker and the blood has really scared me.

IS there anything i can do to remove this darkening? I read somewhere that someone starrted doing dry excersizes and it helped. Is this true? Should i just STOP pumping completely (just do stretching) for maybe a week? I’d rather not do that, im in a bit of a sticky situation and i need growth…right now.

Should i instead just do LOW pressure (3-5) for ONLY 10 mins a day and see if that helps or should i just quit it altogether for a week to see if the darkening goes away?

The best thing to do is quit for a week, maybe 2 and when you start again, use just 3”hg for 10 minutes max. If you have healed enough to take that, stay there for a week and then when you want to expand your routine, add more time in 10 minute increments, but do not increase pressure.


The primary goal of PE should be to make your penis as healthy as possible in both form and function. If you do that, increased size will follow.

Mate I’ve been in this situation and this is my best advice if you want a normal looking cock back,
Stop all PE for at least 2weeks ! ideally a month. you should be safe with stretches.
Every morning and evening soak your penis in warm water for about ten mins and VERY gently massage the skin towards your body, then apply a good retin A or AHA moisturiser such as Amlactin which will speed up the turn over of skin cells.

The problem is the darkening is or can be caused by several different things.
Basic bruising, broken capilliaries, redness/inflammation, hyper pigmentation and possibly hemosiderin staining.
most of these things should resolve with a few weeks rest, the broken capilliaries/spider veins can be permanent and will give you a darker red look when flaccid but aren’t to bad when erect, they sometimes respond well to vitamin k cream.
The hyper pigmentation seems to fade much like a sun tan would if left alone and the AHA etc will help.
If you’re unlucky you may be left with permanent dark patches which most people believe is hemosiderin/iron staining, this may fade eventually but this is the type of discolouration that has caused folks to resort to chemical peels !

I hope that’s not too depressing but I cant emphasise enough that in the first instance stopping PE is vital for a while as anything pressure based will stop it healing properly and may contribute to making it more permanent.

Best of luck.

Yes, well, unfortunately…

I’m curious as to why you feel you need growth “right now”. Did you commit to being male talent for “MILFS like it big” or something? Everybody wants to get bigger, everybody wants to get bigger as quickly as possible. There’s no secret route or routine to get there. And obviously the idea that more is better is false. Discoloration fades. 2 weeks will see most of it gone. Probably not all though.

If you have any interest in an experimental treatment using a solution of DMSO and iodine that has worked for me, search for or check out the more recent pages of the DMSO/iodine treatment thread.

Is it dark all over or blotchy?

Or just go ahead and ruin your dick, we sure could use a poster boy for how not to do it. The day blood comes out…fuck me,! hurts even thinking about it.

capernicus1, Thank you so much for your response. Can you tell me where you got your information from? If the darkness is indeed due to broken capillaries will my capillaries ever heal back? If yes, in how long? When this happened to you did it hinder your gains a lot? Thanks again, you’ve been extremely helpful. That was a very sincere and througal answer and its greatly appreciated!

I am able to get a full erection and my penis still functions perfectly normal. Yes blood coming out was quite the shocker for me, but like i said i am in a really bad situation here and extremely desperate. I have learned my lesson though and I did not pump yesterday and do not plan on pumping today. I have decided to take about a week off pumping and then depending on how i feel i might take another week off. I am still continueing to do stretching (including manual and ADS) is this ok? Or should i abandon the stretching too. Additionally I am doing a 10 min hot cloth wrap at least twice a day.

I have a little over 2 and a half month to make about a .5 inch girth gain. My length is fine, but my girth is only 4 inches. Before pumping it was 3 and 7/8. Pumping gave me 1/8 of an inch in just a few weeks and i got way over excited. Do you guys think it is realisitc of me to gain an aditional .5 inch in a litle over 2 and a half months?

I am not concerned with length.

Thanks guys, please be sure to let me know if its ok for me to continue the stretching.

(capirnicus I know you said stop ALL PE, but do I REALLY have to stop STRETCHING too since its working it in a completely different way?) Also to be honest, i really don’t care for the darkening, it doesnt bother me, i still have a FULLY functional penis, and if i can continue to gain and have a perminent darkness I do not mind. So my question is, is this just discoloration or is this hindering my gains? (remember, i can still get FULL erections, including morning wood)

sorry for the question bombardment.

EDIT:

gprent, thank you for your response, the last time i pumped at 5 hg, twice in one day and i did not experience any bleeding :) but after reading the answers, I have decided to quit pumping for about a week. Thanks again

sleepy278, thank you, yes it is unfortunate :/

raybbaby, hahahaha yes, thats exactly what i had in mind. but seriously its a long story and i really am in a terrible situation…although your comment did make me laugh :p

dtwarren1942, can you link the forum please?

nedpickle, well its weird…the first inch or so of my penis (from the base outward) is fine, after about an inch the discoloration starts and it ends COMPLETELY before my penis head. my penis head and penis base are COMPLETELY normally colored (pink) while the rest is a pretty dark tan color (maybe even brow) i’d say.

Vikingwhore…you whore :p

Mushroom Hook, I have been doing a lot of warm water baths and massages, what are firegoat rolls? you people come up with creative names…

“firegoat roll” discoloration prevention, control, and removal

Can’t remember who first called them that. :)


Heat makes the difference between gaining quickly or slowly for some guys, or between gaining slowly instead of not at all for others. And the ideal penis size is 7.6" BPEL x 5.6" Mid Girth.

Basics.... firegoat roll How to use the Search button for best results

The discoloration is from leakage of blood the the microscopic vessels called capillaries. It happens when the pressure you are making (from outside in, in the case of pumping) forces the capillaries to leak. That can come from pumping, squeezing, Ulis or clamping (the last three are from increased pressure from within). The reason it is probably happening at a certain part of your shaft is that the base of your shaft is likely either touching the sides of the tube, or your wrap or seal on the tube is in the normally colored region. It happens this way because the pressure from the tube or seal on the tube acts as a counter pressure to the expansion pressure pulling the blood out of the capillaries.

Your capillaries are likely getting traumatized, but unless the bruises are continuing to darken or enlarge after you are done with your session then they aren’t damaged, per se. In either case, they are very superficial and only serve the skin in that region, and are innumerably redundant so even if you damage a few per hundred you will see your skin darken without risk to the skin tissue perfusion.

It is possible for the darkening to be somewhat permanent, but it is unlikely. Typically (and especially around here) “permanent” can mean a few weeks or months. If you stop for a few months or in some cases a year or so, it will likely fade back to normal.

The things to do to prevent it: use less pressure, longer duration. Do not take any blood thinners (including aspirin, alleve, or ibuprofen), jelq in the shower for a bit to improve clearance of the blood products deposited in the skin, and don’t worry about it too much. If you have a date or a photo shoot or something (whatever is driving your urgency here) you might consider stopping a few days out, following the advice around here for clearing it up and then only pump light pressure for long duration the day you want to maximize your temporary size.

You can also try to even out he discoloration to go along your entire shaft (or as much as possible) so it doesn’t look like Neopolitan ice cream. Try changing the circumference of your pump so more of your shaft is getting expanded. Try clamping/ Uli’s at the base for the same effect. If your whole cock is dark, it might just look like you have a dark cock.

Lastly, if it is sex that is driving your timing issue, you can put on a cock ring during, which will also darken your cock while it is on. If the partner asks about it, you can say you like to use it and not to worry about the color. Tell them it makes your dick a little fuller and feels great for you during sex and masturbation. Better for them, too, because of the extra added girth and hardness. Sometimes there is some temporary discoloration for a bit after you take it off, but it usually goes away in a couple of days if you don’t use it. I have used this approach with multiple partners, including long term girlfriends and my wife, to keep the PE stealth but explain the occasional weird color it brings. None of them have ever thought twice about it after that.

Hope this helps.


Rock out with your cock out!

The following is a link to the DMSO/Iodine thread. It is long (23 pages) and deals mostly with the healing of scar tissue, soft glans, and reducing deposits in capalaries. However, if you wade through it, you will read that several members have reversed discoloration.

From reading your description of your discolouration it sounds exactly the same as mine was, classic overpumping look !
I still stand by my advice though that in the first instance rest is best, the blood from your urethra suggests the damage wasn’t just on the surface and until the initial bruising goes down you wont be able to see if you have any permanent marks.

regarding gaining half an inch in two or three months, I wont say it’s impossible but it’s pretty damn close ! setting those kind of expectations will only leave you pissed of and disillusioned and will likely cause you to quit.

PE because you enjoy it, learn about it and improve technique for the pleasure of learning, take any gains as a bonus.
