Urology/Penis problem.


Hi Stephen,
    I am a 20 year old man. I have been masturbating excessively for past few months and facing severe penis pain in my penis. I think I was too rough and aggressive during masturbation. I am suffering from aggressive masturbation and hurt my penis. Is there any chance of healing? I don't think I have bruises, I can not see anything on my penis. But the worst part is that I can not get erection completely. I feel pain whenever I get erection. I think the tissue that holds blood during an erection got weak in my penis due to aggressive masturbation. I don't believe I need surgery to resolve this. I understand that abstinence from masturbation is important. I am planning to visit urologist if this does not heal itself. I just hope it heals itself. But I want to know that is there any ointment to heal penis? If there is any ointment to heal penis like there are several ointments to heal muscular problems. Are there any ointments which I can apply on penis to heal? What do you consider, do I need surgery? Or will it heal itself, if I abandon masturbation completely? I hope to get answers. Thanks


Healing is certainly possible, but if you masturbated often and hard enough to cause an injury you will have to change your habits.  If the erections remain inadequate, you'll need to check with your physician or consult a urologist.  We rarely do surgery for erection problems any more.  There is no "ointment" that will help the penis heal.
