Urology/Flaccid penis stretch pain


I am 34. Four months back I got interested in having PE after reading some internet literature. To be on safer side, I started with flaccid stretch after a hot wrap. I gave four stretches in up, down, right and left directions. While stretching upward along belly button, I felt some breaking sensation without any pain. I got worried and stopped any PE. Next day I masturbated and felt a severe pain in the head which was followed by discomfort in the penis. I took complete rest for seven days. Discomfort almost gone but I started feeling some pain in head and hypersensitivity in the head and ventral half of the penis. This condition is still continued but now getting tolerable. I did not have any sex or masturbation during this period.
Yesterday evening, I was sleeping on right side (in bent position) and squeezed both my testes and penis forward for relaxing position; suddenly I felt strange discomfort and pain. Now I am back to almost the same condition which I had four months back.
My erection is good but a bit painful, there is no sign of any injury.
Please doctor help me and sort out the problem. Thank you.


First, now you know why we don't recommend these types of stretching.

Rest is the right treatment immediately.  It can take 1 year or longer for an injury to completely heal.  

In some cases, vitamin B-6  helps with nerve discomfort and a hot sitz bath can help with blood flow and muscular discomfort.  

You should consult a local urologist for additional personal advice.
