    A long-lasting, usually very painful erection of the penis that lasts for several hours or much longer. This occurs because the blood in the penis is trapped and unable to return to the circulation. It is not necessarily related to sexual stimulation… Read more →

    Hi, I am 20 years old. Yesterday and today, I woke up with an erection (thats the normal part). However, it was the sharp pain on the tip of my penis that has been worrying me. It seems that I get the pain when I begin to get an erection. When its not erect, there is no pain at all. It does not burn or sting when I pee. It just stings when I get an erection. Please help me out. I'm kind of worried. I have not had sex recently however my girlfriend does have a yeast infection and I performed oral.

    A small curve in penis is normal everyone's is different Trust me. Unless you can't have sex or in pain don't worry we can't all look like a pornstar. If u still think u may have peneroyes see your gp but it will probably be a natural curve that most men have.

    Two months ago, one day was masturbating for long hours really and was trying force erection and ejaculation and suddenly I've felt like snapping sound in the penis followed by sudden loss of erection. penis felt numb and sore. Went to emergency room they said give it a rest and nothing been serious so its not bend or anything took ibuprofen. it settled down. tried masturbating again but weak erection sensation partly lost. feeling that my penis will snap again from the base. Penis feel lifeless now and discomfort but no pain or curve. but it feels different. Have I damaged nerve or anything there? Is this serious? I am quite anxious about this problem I've lost the sensation and erection firmness its been over 2 months now!!. Thanks

    Hello, i am 24, I weigh 135 lbs and am 5'9. For years I have been struggling maintaining an erection. When I was 19 and 20 I could get an erection and have sex with my GF but if she ever got on top it instantly just died. However now, I cannot even masturbate without my erection rapidly dying. Last year i saw a doctor and he cleared me of diabetes and any other physical problems that could cause ED. He said it's probably psychological but i have no idea what to do....

    I'm 19 and have a problem keeping an erection whilst inside my girlfriend. I can keep an erection during oral, I can also masturbate perfectly fine without losing my erection. Plus when I do finally keep it up and cum, I don't get that releasing feeling I get after masturbating. I never cared before with pass girlfriends as it was just wham bam thank you mam. But I do like to satisfy her.

    ??? Sounds like your tools of trade are fine and are in working order.. The only issue is when you are parking inside your partner..?? Physlogical issue seems a strong answer to this.. Perhaps you have over did it on the other arenas and your expectations have now been distorted in some way in your mind.. Or perhaps you strong urge to really want to pleasure the person you are with, you feel/ think you are not good enough..and find sheltering your insecurities via resisting, sending subconscious messages to body to deflate.. and going to the more safe mode of manual pump or oral, which is where you feel secure, safe and no pressure.. ??? Jack I am no medical professional, I would get some quality advice on this via GP. and take it from there. This is not a unique problem. Your partner will suffer also, she may be ok at first, but she will then feel bad, thinking it is her, then possibly she will get frustrated as she has needs also.. Jack go to a Doc, for advice and direction, not for one person needs but for two.. Take Care

    Hi I'm 28. Recently I performed some jelqing exercises for 6 days. During the exercises, for the first 2 days, I squeeze the base of my penis too tight that blood was not circulation properly. Afterwards, especially for last 2 days, I noticed that it was difficult to get an erection and to keep it during the exercises. When I sleep, my erection was around 50%. Is it normal? So I stopped doing it. I was wondering whether I should pay a visit to a Doctor? What could I do to regain a full erection? How long would it take? And whether it is a sign of ED since the erection does not last for long?

    Mike, what has this got with the broken wrist??? Go and talk to a Doc about your issue and perhaps get a script for Viagra for awhile to get your confidence up again..

    I had my surgery 10 days ago and I continuously have an erection when I am standing or sleeping which hurts like hell. I am thinking of going back to work to take my mind out of the pain. There is a continuous stabbing pain that last for 2mins once in every 4 hours since yesterday. How can I get the pain and erection to stop?

    I am 37 yrs old and struggle to maintain an erection. On the occasions when I do maintain an erection and climax, I get a pain in my rectum. This pain is quite intense and can last for anything up to 20 minutes. About a year ago I was given antibiotics for possible prostatitis. What is the connection between ejaculation and this pain?

    I developed this problem 4 years ago, it started with pain at erection time but this phase only lasted for some months. Now I have no pain but a curvature upwards which is OK, it compensates for the former downward slope erection, normal as one gets older ( I am now 64) Other than a shortening in length I have no other symptom and all is still working well. My partner is also satisfied.

    I have Peyronie's Disease and just to put yours and many others mind at rest, you will know if you have Peyronie's Disease. I was diagnosed nearly 20 years ago when I was in my 20's. Every time I had an erection it was very painful, this was caused by the penis trying to expand but at the same time being held back in one area causing it to bend. The pain eased off after 12 months, I decided against having a procedure (wasn't worth it just to attempt to straighten without guarantee of success). My GP at the time didn't know much (thought I'd be back in work in 2 weeks) consultant told me 3-6 months to fully heal. Just to confirm - Erection = Pain, No Erection = No Pain, lasted for about 12 months then fades away but the bend remains, not a problem.

    Hi I have erection problem and have really small penis. Im only 28 and erection proble start having since I was 20, before couldn't control erection and had problem to calling erection down and nowI can't keep it up.

    I am having problems with keeping an erection just before penetration. I am able to have an erection through oral and everything before but as soon as I put a condom on, I lose my erection. Is there anything I can do about this ? As it is stressing both me and my partner out.

    So I used to have quite a tight foreskin but now I can retract it during an erection and while flat. The sensitivity was terrible at first but slowly gotten better so I can touch the exposed glands in my head However I cannot get any pleasure from it and I lose my erection because it still kind of hurts but it's more like touching the pupil on your eye kind if pain. How long till the sensitivity will go away? How can I make it pleasurable faster?

    I started decreasing the pain by leaving the glans under the water flow in the shower several days in a row. A more offensive method (that i used afterwards) is to leave the foreskin retracted in my pants when at home : contact with clothes makes the glans more robust. That has been enough for it to stop hurting and it requires only a few weeks.

    I'm in the same situation regarding having to sit down to urinate - including having to try to dig it out far enough and withdrawing the foreskin to urinate. I am overweight (19st), but I always seem to have been a little "strange" down there, in that an erection (only about 5") often results in my right testicle being pulled "up" into my torso, to the point where it's being pulled so hard it's painful, like it's been kicked. This obviously has an effect on the chances of maintaining an erection - pain is a strong disincentive to passion :-(

    i'm 17, first of all I have delayed ejaculation when having sex which is annoying and I don't understand why I have it. Secondly, whenever i'm drunk which is the only time i'm confident around girls I can never get an erection, I think one of the main reasons is because I have skin pigment on my penis, therefore I just use it as an excuse that I was drunk so I couldn't get an erection, although i do partially believe it is just because i'm drunk. I don't dare do anything with a girl when i'm sober because i'm scared that I wont get an erection again because of the pigment which i will worry about and just ruins my confidence further more even though I have not actually tried. I did have a girlfriend for 17 months and she was the only person I was confident in showing it to and having regular sex with a full erection.
