I'm a 21 year old male who, about 8 months ago, started experiencing pain when I got an erection. It seemed to start overnight with no obvious cause. The more harder my penis gets, the more sensitive it is to squeeze or bend. If I masturbate or have sex, my erect penis hurts only for the first 2 or 3 minutes that it is erect, and then becomes almost unnoticable, until ejaculation when the pain becomes obvious again, though not to the point that I'm not willing to have sex.
This is a problem during foreplay when I do experience pain, as well as when I wake up at night with an erect penis that is giving me a bit of pain. When I asked a doctor about my problem, her response was: "*shrug* I don't know what it could be. If it's not getting any worse, and it's not having a big effect on you, then we may as well just wait it out to see if it goes away."
It certainly hasn't gotten any better or worse over the 8 months I've been experiencing it, but I don't want to be experiencing pain during foreplay for the rest of my life, so I'd love to get some ideas about what is going on. I know it's not an STD, and the only other unusual thing about my genitals are some small bumps I've had for years that are completely characterized by sebaceous prominence (a simple skin condition).
If anybody could point me in the right direction, or at least suggest what I do to get a professional diagnosis (the doctors don't seem to want to give attention to a problem that only threatens my sex life and not my health), I'd be grateful.
