Hi doctor,

My penis bends downwards during erections, and the foreskin is tight and accumulates in a ring shape when brought back. The erections are not frequent, and it does not last long. I used to masturbate a lot. Is this because of excessive masturbation? Kindly suggest.



Welcome to

I understand your concern. Bending of penis during erections can be due to a short frenulum, phimosis (tight foreskin), or Peyronie's disease (a scar inside the penis muscle). I suggest you share the pictures of an erect penis to assist you further.

Thank you.

Hi doctor,

Thank you for your reply.

I understand your concern.

I have attached images of an erect penis. My penis is not erecting. Do I have erectile dysfunction? Kindly help.



Welcome back to

I understand your concern. I have checked the pictures, and it looks normal (the attachment was removed to protect the patient's identity). Also, your penis is well erected, and you do not have erectile dysfunction.

I hope this helps you.

Thank you.
