Question: Small red bumps appare on penis shaft after masterbation.

 DustMan900 - Wed Aug 03, 2005 3:06 pm

I have been with the same girl for almost 2 year, she has been tested for std's about 2 months ago and everything was find. But recently, after a normal masterbastion i noticed a few small bump occur on the bottem of the penis shaft( far end from the head). Theres no itching, burning, or anything. i would never no it's there unless i looked. I gave it a couple of days and it went away and everything was fine. I wanted to see if it would come back if i masterbated again and it did. But me and my girl friend had sex about 1 week before te first time it showed up after i masterbated and there was nothing. There is nothing showing up on her. I don't think it is an std because we have old been with each other. Please help me find out what this is and i can fix it and put it behind me. Thanks again.

It is impossible to tell you what those "bumps" are without a doctor's examination.
If the act of masturbation causes these bumps to appear, and they resolve without treatment, surely the best way to "fix" it is to abstain from the provoking act.

You said both of you have had a monogamous relationship for 2 years. Why was she tested for STDs two months ago?
