I am concerned about swelling I am having after masturbating.
Sometimes I will masturbate, and afterwards I will feel a tingly feeling in my penis. After I lose the erection, it is greatly swollen. The swelling usually takes about one day to go away. This is so weird to me! I have no clue why it does this... but, I do know that usually it does this if it has been a few days to a week since I had last masturbated. I was worried that it was STD's, but I got myself checked this past week and also six months ago and I was clear both times. If it makes any difference I am also circumcised, so I know that it probably isn't any foreskin problem. Can anyone help me? This is really bothering me... Also I forgot to mention.... the very first time I did this when I was younger (12 or 13) this happened to me.... so it is not a new thing.

  • Have you talked to a doctor about the very problem when you went to check for infections?

  • What other settings does this occur in? Does this occur after any erection or simply after ejaculation? Also, do you also notice this after intercourse or only after masturbation? More specifically, what about after an AM erection without orgasm? What about after manual stimulation w/out ejaculation?In addition, is this swelling you speak of painful, hot to the touch, or reddened? Would you describe your penis to still be semi-erect during this time, or do you feel this to be more of an edematous, fluid-like swelling? I think you can ease your worries that this may be a manifestation of an STD, as these symptoms do not fall in line with any typical presentations of STDs. If you're seriously concerned about this and it is causing you difficulty, I would recommend you see a urologist.

  • Mine has done this all my life ..I'm older than dirt.. :) .. only after masturbation and not ALWAYS, but often. If I have normal intercourse, I don't have the problem. I believe it to be simply fluid which is produced under the skin either to provide cushioning or lubrication to avoid friction or as a result of the friction. It has never lingered over a few hours (maybe up to a day). It is soft without any lumps or discoloration (though it is very uneven and has thicker and thiner areas.. it is only on the penis area, normally the upper 2/3 but this can vary considerably from almost none to significant .. and appears to be "under the skin" sort of like a blister but without the thin covering and transparency.. instead it just seems to be "thick skin" or like a balloon filled with fluid.. It normally is not even at all but varies considerably over the area. Its almost like someone injected a thickish fluid under the skin in spots using a needle or something (no punctures of course though)Its never caused me a problem, so I assume it isn't an issue as you describe it. It seems to be unrelated to frequency (ie it can be after many months of no masturbation or it can be a few hours later) and is not accompanied by any other symptoms.

  • My penis does this sometimes when I don't use lube. It's just the skin irritated from the friction. I can feel an itching feeling as I'm rubbing and that's when I know it's going to swell after. I actually try to get this to happen cause it makes my penis look about twice it's thickness. I love it. It's not a disease or infection.

It swells up in almost a watery kind of way, usually after masturbating when I may have gripped it harder than usual. I assumed it to be my body's reaction to not having any lubrication, and filling with fluids somehow to provide lube of some sort. I've started having some frequent ED problems (i'm in my mid 30's) - I was wondering if this happening may have been an indicator early on of something wrong, but now I'm thinking that that's probably not the case.

  • This has just happened to me recently for maybe the second or third time after masturbating. This was the first time it happened to me in a rather large manner. i had recently taken some roxicodone which made it take rather long to ejaculate, but i did not have any pain or irritation of the skin. I also do not have any problems going to the bathroom or any discoloration of my urine. I do not think i will have to ask a doctor about it. Any advice or remedies to help get the swelling down would be appreciated for future reference if this happens again.
