    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 →

    Dear Ask The Doctor: Hi I am 27 yr old male. i havent had intercourse with any one. It all started with too many beers i had one night and masturbated the next morning. after ejaculation it felt little burning in the shaft but gradually increased by the end of the day. Doctor treated me with Zithromax which worked and i was all fine. during this time i had little pain in my buttocks, and after i completed zithromax course(4 tablets on one day and 2 tablets on next day), the pain increased and there was inflammation in my buttocks and i have also had pain in my legs. the doctor treated with Neuro vitamins(i dont remember the medicine name and i lost that prescription). the pain was gone after 1 week of complete rest. i have stopped masturbating completely for about a month now, and now there are few red spots on my penis head and also pain in the penis. the doctor tested me for STD's and all came negative. Pain in penis also triggers pain in my buttocks and legs. i have no back pain. the pain in penis is like electric shocks. now lately, this pain also causes inflammation in penis shaft. inflammation is at different regions, sometimes in the shaft, sometimes at the glans and some time just near where testicles hang. this pain is aggravated when i sit for a long time. I am a software developer by profession. if i lay on bed the pain comes down. i have had pain on my penis head rim with swelling and turned purple.I was also testes negative for UTI. i have never had sex, i only went to strip clubs in the United States where i happened to suck boobs only once. i have no idea what i have been going through. this is very distressing. the doctor suggested me to see a urologist but didnt give me any kind of medication for temporary relief. What could be possible region for all this? I appreciate your help. Thanks and Regards CJ

    Hi,I'm sorry but this is not an answer,what u are going through has peaked my interest. After searching the net for years and not really finding anything helpful I can say that I too am experiencing similar symptoms. I too have that odd sensation in buttocks and left foot. Only it all happened with me when I was 19,I am 26 now btw. A girl I was seeing gave me oral pleasure but as she was masturbating me I felt a sharp pain on my penis, she went again and i felt pain a second time, she had ripped me under the head with a ring she was wearing. Ever since I have been to specialists and none helped very much. I was told that it was nerve damage and nothing could b done,pls tell they ate wrong as this is very difficult to live with...

    I am 30 years old and have been diagnosed with Peyronies, I get bad pain when having sex which makes it off putting and sometimes pain when my penis is soft. I dont however have any curve in my penis. When I saw the urologist he explained the operation to correct the curve and shorten the penis but when i explained there is no curve he told me that the procedure requires it. I am confused? why would he shorten my penis when there is no curve? I feel that i just need the plaque removed. In fact although i have a whole vein that is hard and lumpy, it is only a particular nodule that causes the pain. I have also noticed that I cant always aim straight when urinating. I have scanned the internet but it appears that i am the only one without a curve. Please help, I am still young and This is affecting my life.

    Hi, am 20 year old, I can pull the skin of my penis back over the head when flacid, but when erect or semi-erect it can't be done without causing pain. It seems that the foreskin is attached to the underside of the penis by a tight piece of skin. but i can ejaculate,I had never felt pain during ejaculation. I never had sex with anybody, so i don't know whether it would pain during sex. Is this a real problem? i have heard about steroid creams how much does it cost? And my penis is not clean too. what should i do? Is there any way that i can confirm its phimosis, If not treated will it cause any problems. I had no problem till now, proper ejaculation can be done.. pl z doctors help me.

    Hi, I hurt me penis during sex with my girlfriend last year and went to my GP about it. I was told that I had ruptured it but the pain would eventually stop and it would get back to normal. Most of the pain has stopped but there is still some pain and it is uncomfortable when I get an erection, but the main thing is the erect shape of my penis has changed. It now curved upwards and to the side which is really noticeable. It doesnt stop me having sex but now sex is not as enjoyable. Does this require surgery to rectify?

    Sounds like you might have Peyronies, that is where you damage your penis during sex or masterbation. I would suggest seeing a urologist.

    I'm 21 and I have Penoscrotal Web (A webbed Penis). I always thought the skin attaching my penis and my scrotum was normal and it never bothered me, but I saw myself erect in the mirror recently I realised I'd never seen that on anyone else. After researching it turns out I have a webbed penis which is something you're born with and can lead to problems keeping condoms on (which I've experienced, thinking my penis was simply too small) and pain during sex. Apparently it often occurs after circumcision but I'm not circumcised! Also I have hair on the base of my shaft which is also something circumcised related. My questions are: 1. Why do I have these issues when I'm not cirumcised? 2. What should I do about condoms? 3. Have other webbed guys had pain during sex? 4. Is surgery the only option for getting rid of it? Thanks

    Me and my boyfriend last had sex on Christmas Eve. Unfortunately his penis came out and when he went back in again quickly we think he hit my pubic bone before re entering me which resulted in a sudden jolt to his penis. He reached orgasm but later that night when he went to the toilet he noticed that the tip was particularly sensitive to the touch. When he touches the tip he can feel a throbbing pain going the penis - there is no apparent bruising. The pain is only when touched and if the skin is stretched back otherwise he is able to urinate without any pain. He has been having warm baths and no sex - can you advise on anything else to help ease the throbbing and how long should he expect to wait before the pain starts to ease?

    There was another young man I counseled on the bend in his penis. His was more of a bend than a curve. In a photo of his erect penis, we were able to measure the bending and determined it bent by 30 degrees. Like you, he was afraid to insert because of the potential pain to his partner, but I recommended they try insertion very slowly and gently to see if either one experienced pain. He reported back to me afterwards that they did not. I would suggest the same to you. Try insertion slowly and gently. If either of you experience pain, then stop. As for his penis size, he measured 6.25 inches, so that is one variable we need to consider. Your extra length instead of the curvature may be the pain factor.

    Penis pain after sex is normal and can be caused by friction, especially if there is not enough lube. Irritation from condoms or spermicides can also cause pain, itching and burning of the urethra. Using a polyurethane condom instead of latex might help, as well as using a personal lubricant. You can soothe a sore penis with a penis health cream that contains Shea butter (Man1 Man Oil is a good brand, or google for others).

I am experiencing some pain at the back part of my penis (Not the head or center part of my penis) ,when i get stiff or hard. Any side or bent movement to the penis during sex is quite painful. Could i have damaged or hurt some muscle? The Pain only appeared yesterday. Hope to hear from u soon

    Hi, I'm Mike and I'm 22. A few weeks ago, I was making a cup of tea whilst naked (stupid I know) and spilt boiling hot water from the kettle onto my penis. I immediately had a freezing cold shower and the pain was relieved somewhat. All was OK for a few hours but then all the skin around the top of my penis started to flake and come away. This has been happening on and off since, and my doctor can't explain it. I also now find it hard to get an erection due to immense pain in my penis when I'm erect. What should I do?

    You should be worried, but you are worried about the wrong thing. Go see a doctor.

    it might not be as bad as he says, the pain in your penis could be under developed capilarys conected to your penis muscle, the worst that can happen is erectile disfunction, and dont worry about the docs, cause their used to doing those kinds of examinations, however it is ok to be embaressed. the testical pain is not normal you should have that checked to make shure its not seriouse

    As you already experienced, shoving the penis into the vagina is not one of the best or sensitive ways to enter a female . There are many questions to be asked as why it was so hard for the penis to go in for instance: was the vagina moist and erect, was there lubricant, is the penis to big, and many more. You don't suppose to shove it in you have to ease it in and work from there ,depending on which type of vagina a female possess it can be easy to insert the penis and depending on her tolerance level for pain it might be actually be pleasurable for her to have an abundance of pain inflicted on her during sexual intercourse

    Perhaps you could try researching what other men that have a large penis have found to help their sex life? Think of what a womans vagina is actually designed to do. It is very elastic so whilst generally tight and short in depth when she is not aroused, will easily lengthen, expand and become slippery enough to accommodate quite a large penis. She needs to be teased and turned on until she is aroused enough to take in your penis without experiencing pain and reassured that it won't hurt her. My suggestion would be to learn how to get her incredibly aroused before even taking your penis out. She is much more likely to be able to feel physically and mentally that she is able to accept your penis. Become familiar with the facts of the vagina so that you are more likely to put her mind at rest that you are not going to cause her severe pain. Also, reassure her that you'll take it very slowly. I hope that might help you!

    Hi I'm 18 years old and during a game of rugby my penis got trampled on as I fell to the floor after this I was lots pain and eventually the pain went but left my penis with a curve this is very embarrassing and doesn't seem to go as hard as it used to what can you recommend as I am very shy about this and won't have the guts to go to my own doctor

    If you’re worried why not contact the show and have a proper consultation with one of our Dr’s? You can apply via the link on our home page.

    you may have developed a traumatic peyronie's plaque, that is to say that the injury has caused bruising but more importantly scarring to your penis that is the plaque or gristle that you may be able to feel. It is this gristle that limits expansion of the penis leading to the curvature. perhaps all will settle and you'll be able to have problem free sex in the future, but if it doesn't you do need to see your doctor

    it might not be as bad as he says, the pain in your penis could be under developed capilarys conected to your penis muscle, the worst that can happen is erectile disfunction, and dont worry about the docs, cause their used to doing those kinds of examinations, however it is ok to be embaressed. the testical pain is not normal you should have that checked to make shure its not seriouse
