Possible Weak PC Muscles or venous leakage?
« on: December 14, 2012, 12:54:44 AM »

Hello everyone,

Since I injured myself masturbating a few months ago, I've had a hard time maintaining an erection. I was wondering if anyone here had symptoms similar to my particular experience:

I usually need a great deal of stimulation to get a full erection and when I do get an erection, the glans are less inflated than they were before my injury. However, if I flex the kegel muscles, the glans engorge fully along with a partial increase in shaft size, but only for a moment. Immediately afterwards, the glans deflate almost entirely, and the shaft shrinks a great deal as well, making the erection weaker than before I flexed the muscles. This has made maintaining a full erection suitable for penetration very difficult.

Before the injury, I could flex my kegel muscles just fine as the glans were fully engorged, and I would be able to maintain the full erection.

I also no longer have very strong morning erections, but when I do, the glans are never fully engorged.

I used to have a habit of flexing my kegel muscles quite often, especially when I'd wake up with a morning erection. I guess this might be partly because I'm naturally a twitchy person, but I'm wondering if I've overworked the muscles over the years, and maybe caused some damage. Has anyone had similar symptoms, and if so, did you find that anything help? I've read that some people have had improvement with soft glans with kegel exercises, but I'm not sure if this would be good in my case if I've already overworked something.

I have never heard of any suggestion that there is any such thing as "over working Kegels" or that it could result in weak erections.  I am sure your problems are in no way connected to doing too many Kegel contractions.

As far as involuntarily overworking the muscles you might want to research chronic pelvic pain syndrome:

My understanding is that you're only supposed to do Kegels every other day in order to let the pelvic muscles repair.

I am somewhat familiar with chronic pelvic pain syndrome sine I have a friend that has it but I never heard of it being associated with Kegels.  I have also consulted with one very well known Peyronies Disease specialist and sexual dysfunction doctor.  I have never been advised to only do Kegels every other day nor have I ever had any issues,

Hawk, that's great. It depends on the routine. Some routines call for everyday and some for every other day. If you can do them every day and see consistent improvement or maintaining of your goal, then that's perfect. Some people need a day to recover. Either way, it's all part of this great journey some call, "Loving Our Penis". :)

WAGNER,

In my experience, your symptom of difficulty getting and sustaining an erection are consistent with both low testosterone and venous leakage.  Only your doctor (urologist) can make a definitive diagnosis.  I suggest you don't wait any longer to make an appointment.  You may have other medical conditions - known or unknown by you - which contribute to this.
