Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

I used to masturbate thrice a week, but about 37 days ago, I stopped for a week. And when I resumed later, there was a mild pain in my penis, which I ignored and continued to masturbate. But I heard a soft popping sound, and I ejaculated, and there was no pain then. After that incident, I stopped masturbating for one month because my penis hurts when I try to masturbate. And two days ago, I masturbated again as there was no pain. But again, I heard a soft popping sound, and I ejaculated. Later, when I tried to masturbate, I had pain again in my penis.

In my city, there is a complete lockdown, and I cannot undergo any scans. However, I checked my penis thoroughly (when erect and flaccid), and there were no lumps or bends. But there is a pain in the joints of the penis when I slightly press them (even when flaccid). Do you think my condition is Peyronie's disease? If yes, what should I do?

Please give me your suggestions.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I went through your query and understood your concern.

There are two possibilities for your condition: mild soft tissue injury to the base of the penis during masturbation or an acute Peyronie’s disease. Peyronie’s disease has two phases, acute (active) phase, and chronic (stable) phase. Plaques are formed in the first phase or the acute phase, and there is pain. It lasts for about five to seven months. And in the second phase, the pain subsides but results in a bent penis.

The symptoms of Peyronie’s disease include pain, penile deformity, penile curvature, erectile dysfunction, and distress. Some men with Peyronie’s disease are unable to have intercourse. The treatment of the first phase of Peyronie’s disease includes,

1. Oral medications.

2. Extracorporeal shock wave therapy.

3. Intralesional therapy - It involves injecting medication directly into the plaques. Collagenase clostridium histolyticum (a bacterial enzyme that dismantles collagen) is found to be helpful.

4. Traction therapy - Penile weights, wearing a straightening device for several hours a day, vacuum pumps, and stretching exercises are also effective in treating PD.

Men in the second phase or the chronic phase may undergo surgery, but this treatment is not recommended for men in the active phase.

1. Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs can provide pain relief.

2. Platelet-rich plasma is also found to be beneficial.

Also, kindly follow the instructions mentioned below,

1. Give rest to the penis for one month.

2. Do not engage in sexual activity.

3. Take tablet Flexon (Ibuprofen and Paracetamol) twice daily for one week.

Kindly consult a specialist, talk with them and take the medications with their consent.

I hope this has helped you.

Take care.

Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

Thank you for your reply.

I am really worried now as to what will happen next. There is no pain when the penis is flaccid. Also, the pain is not severe during masturbation, but there is some discomfort. And I did not masturbate vigorously. Also, I do not have sexual intercourse. In addition, there are no lumps on any part of the penis when erect or flaccid. I have checked thoroughly, and it looks normal. Visiting a doctor is not an option for me. Also, based on these symptoms, can you conclude whether it is Peyronie's disease or not?

Please give me your suggestions.

Hi,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

You are going to be fine, so do not worry. Give rest to the penis for a month, and you will be alright.

I hope this helps you out.

Take care.

Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

Thank you for your reply.

Can you please tell me what measures I should take in addition to stopping masturbation from improving my condition?

Thank you.

Hi,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

Exercise regularly and eat more fruits and vegetables.

I hope this helps you out.

Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

Thank you for your advice.

I have wet dreams. Will this worsen my condition? How can I stop getting wet dreams?

Please help.

Hi,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

Wet dreams are normal, so do not worry. Nightfall is also called a nocturnal emission or wet dream. It is very common among young men. It is a spontaneous or involuntary ejaculation during sleep. At nightfall, men may suddenly wake up and go back to sleep. Nightfall is considered a problem only if it is very frequent or persistent, even when the male reaches adulthood.

Frequent masturbation, watching pornography or such pictures, discussing sex, or adult talks makes a person victim of nightfall. Also, certain medicines such as sedatives, tranquilizers, and high BP (blood pressure) medicines can lead to nightfall. Also, stress, depression, anxiety, and obesity may result in wet dreams. The treatment includes,

1. A proper diet can ensure the strength you might have lost due to nightfall.

2. Practicing yoga and meditation regularly before sleep can help eliminate the problem.

3. Consuming green vegetables help in curing insomnia and getting rid of the nocturnal emissions.

I hope this helps you out.

Take care.

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

It will subside as you grow, so do not worry.

I hope this has helped you.
