Question: Embarrasing mistake, penis hard while flaccid


 paul123 - Fri May 18, 2007 10:28 pm

I am a 32 year old healthy male. Let night my girlfriend and I were playing with our sex toys. During this time, I used a penis pump for the first time. I used it for about 2 five mintute sets, under light to moderate suction. I experianced no pain or discomfort while using the device, and experianced no problems till this morning. This morning I had sex with my girlfriend, but I could only get partialy erect. Afterwards I noticed, that my penis had shrunk very quickly to about half it's normal size & was somewhat hard. I was concerned at that point about not being able to maintain a full erection, so I tryed unsuccessfuly to do so. After a couple of hours, while I had some minor pain my penis visualy seemed to return to normal. This evening while kissing my girlfriend I did get my erection back, but afterwards it shrunk again to a very small size and is somewhat hard. This is where I am at right now, I am really confused, I made an appointmanet to see a local urologist but they can not see me till Tuesday (that is in 5 days).

Other than the symptoms above, I am experiancing some minor pain/ discomfort. I am worried about tissue damage & cirulation at this point and I am not sure what to do. Is this a medical emergency? Should I go to an emergency room or a hospital? I am begining to get a little scared, and am a little aprehencive about waiting 4 or five days to see a urologist.
Is this a normal or temporay side effect?
Any Help would be greatly appreciated,
Paul

User avatar I am not sure exactly what is going on; however, I would recommend that you be evaluated in the urgent care. If there is any significant damage it is important to identify it as soon as possible.

Best wishes.

Hard, flaccid penis. I've got the same thing. It happened after a few good nights of long hard sex using Viagra. I didnt really need the Viagra at the time but thought it would give me extra firmness and it did. However, now I can't get as firm and it feels like there's a hard tube inside my flaccid penis. Has anyone gotten answers to this issue?

Thanks
