Urology/venous leakage


doctor i'm 16 years old and i think i may have venous leakage.first of all,i'm an athlete and healthy as a man can symptoms are : i'm losing my erection without constant stimulation,the loss begins after the first 40 seconds ,but the glans deflates almost immidiately,i lose my erection when i'm standing up and my penis is somehow desensitized,i can olny achieve orgasm and stay hard with masturbation.also my libido is very low and i rarely have spontaneous erections.the positive is that i have almost every day hard rock night erections and less commonly(4 times per week)morning erection but the glans  is a little deflated and when i wake up and stand up the are lost within a minute.if it helps,i'm masturbating 1-2 times per day and i'm watching a lot of porn.i'm masturbating from 12 years old but i noticed this problems one year ago,at my 15 i'm teriffied i have a venous leakage?did over masturbation caused it or is it  congenital veneous leakage?and sorry for my bad english but i'm from greece.


First, the glans is not supposed to be that hard.  If it were, it would risk hurting your female partners.

Next, the fact that you stay hard with masturbation means that there is a psychological issue and that this is most likely not primarily venous leak.

Masturbation does not do any of this.

Get over your embarrassment and ask your physician for advice at this point.
