Question: penile bruising?


 misterscruffee - Tue Jan 17, 2006 8:13 pm

yesterday my wife and i were having a little experimental sex. she was lying on her back with her legs together and i was above her pushing down. at a certain point it felt like my penile skin was stretched and.. well.. popped i guess would be the closest word. it hurt a little, but passed almost immediately and i haven't been feeling any pain since. afterewards it did feel as though there was a small swelling, maybe the size of a kidney bean just under the glans. today i developed some pretty nasty bruising of my penis under the glans on the bottom side. and whoa it's actually crept down my shaft a bit since this morning.

i know this is a common question with which to end a post, but should i be worried?

also. no difficulty in maintaining an erection, though i've been trying to avoid it.

User avatar Hi misterscruffee,
Bruising of the penis may occur from excessive friction or rough sexual activity since this is a vascular area. Providing there are no difficulties attaining an erection, no discharge or discoloration of the semen, and no pain, the discoloration should subside.
Sincerely,
Theresa Jones, RN
