Question: Hourglass penis
|kato987 - Sat Sep 29, 2007 10:34 pm||
I am a male in my 20s. About a year ago, my penis started having the 'hourglass deformity' while flacid. It usually occurs when I am nervous or cold, and occurs along with a tight testicle sack. Sometimes, I have a perfectly normal flacid penis. The hourglass shape disappears when I have an erection, and I have no erectile curvature. I am quite embarrassed when I have to reveal my flacid penis with the deformity. However, about one month ago, I contracted Gonorrhea, and received Zithromax and an injection of ceftriaxone as treatment. After the treatment, both the Gonorrhea and 'hourglass deformity' vanished! The 'hourglass deformity' unfortunately came back after about ten days. But during the 10 days, I could be cold, nervous...whatever...and still have a perfectly normal hanging penis. Do you have any idea what caused this? Is there an ingredient in either of the drugs I received that could have temporarily cured it and that I may possibly take permanently? I'd appreciate any information regarding my situation. Thanks.

I suspect that what you are descibing is actually a normal variation, given that it is only intermittent and does not interfer with erection.
If you would like a formal evaluation I would recommend you see a urologist.
