My husband refuses to go see a doctor about this, but now it is starting to concern me. Recently he has been experiencing some pain when he has an erection. It is very specifically located, never moves around and isn't painful enough to not proceed with sex, but it does interfere with his ability to climax. He says he actually has to work at it! The pain is located directly below the glans, on one side of the upper shaft and in an area about the size of a quarter. He says it feels like it is only on the skin surface (or just below), by which he means it doesn't feel like a 'deep' pain. It only occurs when he has an erection and goes away once his penis returns to the normal flacid state. He says the pain begins when he begins to feel the erection coming on and gets more intense as his erection becomes 'full'. We don't recall any episode where he could have injured it, like during sex, and this has just recently developed. He has no other symptoms. The skin looks normal, there is no twisting or constrictive looking skin ( like peyrones) and I can't find anything like it on any other web sites. I have been surfing for hours. We are in a 13 yr monogamus relationship, so we are not concerned about a STD (I'm not being naive here, it is just a fact, so pls don't insinuate that this is an STD) It is going to be hard to convince this man to go to a doctor about this, he keeps thinking it will go away, but it hasn't for months now. We have always enjoyed a frequent, healthy sex life but now this is starting to interfere a bit. Has anyone out there suffered something like this? If you have, did it go away or did you need to see a doctor about it? Referring to an injury, how much stress does it take to injure a penis? It is kind of normal to "miss' once in awhile isn't it and is that enough to cause harm? We are not talking about 'missing' hard enough to cause immediate pain, but there has been the occasional 'overshot" (giggling here) that was more cause for laughter than pain. Anyway, this is an otherwise healthy 38 yr old man who has always had a high sex drive which I have gladly encouraged, but now I am concerned about his sexual future if this is ignored. Any insight out there?:confused:

  • Hi dutchharbor10,First of hello I am new to this forum but have be lurking for a few weeks now and finally decided to join when I saw this post. I had a very similar pain just like your husbands but it did go away after about 3 weeks. I was just about to go see the doctor but was way to scared and embarrassed. I never new what it actually was but it was quite painful when I got 100% erections. Did your husband ever use any creams to delay ejaculation "Mandelay"? I was using these creams for a few weeks and thought that could have been what caused it?Jumper..
