Causes: Peyronie's disease Sleep disorders Phimosis Penile injection Vacuum devices Chordee Priapism Overuse
Note:This causes pain in the penis when erection occurs and the penis fills with blood. This is often on one side of the shaft.Curved Penis
As the fibrous tissue does not stretch during an erection, one side of the penis will not increase in length, and the penis will bend towards the side which is thickened.Guide to Sexual and Erectile Dysfunction
Instead:Men with this condition will have trouble getting an erection in the first place.
And:This is termed erectile dysfunction. The cause of Peyronie's disease is unknown. It occurs most often in men in their forties.
Men with Peyronie's disease experience penile pain on erection, and after a long time, some men will feel no pain but often have difficulty achieving an erection. This may be because of sub-normal blood flow in the penis.Guide to Sexual and Erectile Dysfunction
Penile deformity, curvature: 52% of men Penile pain: 40% of men Penile lump: 21% of men
Hands:This means the hands have some fibrosis that limits movement in the same way that the penis is thickened and resists erection.Erectile Dysfunction: Clinical Guide
And:An injection of alprostadil is used to improve the imaging quality. This is a medical requirement.
And:These painful erections cause the man to repeatedly wake up. This makes the quality of his life much worse due to sleep deprivation.
Antidepressant:The painful erections can be reduced with an antidepressant. Something like Zolofy or Paxil may be used.
This is a rare condition that often begins after the fourth decade of life and progressively worsens with advancing age. It is not associated with any physical abnormality of penile disorder or pain during sexual erections while awake.Sleep Medicine: Essentials and Review
Note:Some medications, including propranolol and Paxil have been used with success.
Medications:Propranolol is a beta-blocker medication. And Paxil (paroxetine) is an antidepressant.Paxil: antidepressant
And:In the textbook Sleep Medicine, we find that "psychiatric problems appear to be no more frequent than in the general population."Sleep Medicine
Prepuce:In circumcision, a doctor removes the foreskin from the penis. Prepuce is another word for foreskin.
Note:The preputial opening is the opening of the foreskin. I researched phimosis in the "Handbook of Urological Diseases in Children."
Phimosis is the inability to retract the prepuce after puberty due to a narrow preputial opening.Handbook of Urological Diseases in Children
Phimosis:This is listed as a diagnostic alternative for sleep-related painful erections.
Info:True phimosis is considered rare and only occurs in less than 1 out of 100 boys before age 16.
And:Several medications are used for this effect, including papaverine (Pavabid) and phentolamine (Regitine).
Prolonged erection:If the medication dosage was too high, a "prolonged erection" will become painful.
Warning:These injections may also cause Peyronie's disease to develop. They should be used only under strict medical guidance.
One side effect is that if the injection is too strong, it can produce a prolonged erection that may require medical therapy to be relieved... the worst is that in some men, over time, painless, fibrous knots of tissue build up in the corpora cavernosa.Dr. Patrick Walsh's Guide to Surviving Prostate Cancer
And:Vacuum devices are sometimes used for non-medical purposes. I would not know anything about this though.
Note:The devices are rough on the delicate skin. The penis did not evolve to be vacuumed.Penis, Numb
The penis is usually cold and sometimes numb, and from the man's standpoint, the erection is often less than desirable... Vacuum devices have few complications; these can include trouble with ejaculation, pain in the penis, and tiny, pinpoint-sized bruises.Dr. Patrick Walsh's Guide to Surviving Prostate Cancer
Chordee occurs when the urethra... is shorter than the penis. This makes the penis bend, especially when erect.
Causes:Unknown or congenital causes may also contribute to chordee. Sometimes this diagnosis is also used to refer to painful erections.
Medications:Many medications can increase the likelihood of developing priapism. Antidepressants (see below) are a possible cause.
Priapism is a rare event. However, various medications and medical conditions may increase the risk.Acute management of priapism in men
A 58-year-old man experienced priapism several hours after inadvertently taking three tablets of citalopram 20 mg, which he had mistaken for aspirin, in addition to his usual dosage of 20 mg twice/day.Citalopram-induced priapism
Tip:This is a good reason to stop having sexual intercourse for a few hours or even days.
Tip 2:If a man rubs his penis too much, it will respond like any other sensitive tissue. It will become sore and even painful.
Tip:Avoiding any harmful or irritating lubricants on the penis is advisable. Be careful with what you masturbate with.
And:Using a safe lubricant when engaged in sexual activities will help avoid this sort of pain in the future.
In Greek mythology, Priapus was a minor rustic fertility god, protector of livestock, fruit plants, gardens and male genitalia.Priapus: Wikipedia
