Not every bruised penis will become a bent one. In fact, very few will.
But for certain men, a bruise in the penile shaft will lead to curvature or even severe bending almost without question. This condition is usually called Peyronies Disease.
It can ruin your sex life and make you miserable.
You've got to be careful with your equipment! Although it was probably your favorite toy as a young man, it is a sensitive and delicate organ.
There are at least ten different things that can cause bruising in the penile shaft. These include and are not limited to:
1) Trauma (any penile impact or injury
2) Rough sexual intercourse
5) Penis tourniquet syndrome - (using a cockring )
6) Priapism (erection that lasts too long, usually over 4 hours, commonly caused by sexual enhancement drugs)
9) Skin getting trapped in clothing or a zipper
10) Thrombosed lymphatic vessel (a clotted lymph vessel)
When you injure your shaft, it can look scary. And it can hurt like hell! Or, it may not hurt much at all.
It doesn't take a genius to diagnose that it has been bruised.But, if you are experiencing a lot of pain, you may have fractured it. You may have severe internal damage that requires immediate medical attention.
Penile fracture can be an extremely dangerous situation.
So, please go get a medical diagnosis immediately! Not a day or two from now. NOW!
It will get a "black and blue" (usually purplish) discoloration. It's just like a bruise anywhere else on your body.
The damage/discoloration can be in a spot or in a large area. With a fractured penis the discoloration can cover the whole shaft and the surrounding area as well!
An injury like this on any other part of your body is usually no big deal.
But on your shaft, the problem is that a bruised penis may lead to Peyronies Disease: a severely bent or curved erection.
The reason a bruised penis can cause a bend in your erections is that the blood vessels are broken or torn. (It is the escaped blood that causes the "black and blue" area.)
As these broken blood vessels heal, they may scar heavily. Heavy scarring only happens in a very small percentage of men (approx 3%-5%).
This heavy scar is what make the shaft bend or curve during erection.
For other men, the blood vessel damage would have to be very significant to create enough scarring to cause Peyronies Disease.
But if you are one of the unfortunate, this damage in your shaft could leave you with erections that bend so severely (at a 90 degree angle) and so painfully that sexual intercourse, or any sexual activity, becomes impossible.
A new recent bend in your erection is almost always caused by scar tissue. Specifically a heavy thick often fibrous scar.
What causes heavy scarring? The reason is almost always genetic or dietary: lack of sufficient nutrients.
Even people who think they eat a very "healthy diet" are usually deficient in the nutrients they need to heal really well. Omega 3 fats, Vitamin C, and Vitamin E specifically.
Just getting enough of these nutrients to survive does not mean you have enough to heal properly or well.
Adding Omega 3 fats (from a high quality pure fish oil ), Vitamin C, and Vitamin E to your diet at the first sign of a bruised penis will:
> Greatly increase circulation
> Decrease inflammation
> Enable better smother healing
> Help avoid heavy thick and/or fibrous scarring
If you consumed adequate amounts of these nutrients on a regular basis (daily) you would probably never have to worry about a bruised penis becoming a bent one later.
It may be weeks or months after the injury has happened before you notice your erections are bending.
If you do wind up getting bending or a curving in your erections that was caused by your bruised penis, and your doctor tells you that you now have Peyronies Disease, don't panic!
Peyronies is not really a disease. It is the result of a scar forming after injury. You don't have to worry. It only means your penis is bending because of this scar or plaque formation.
Fortunately, 99.999% of the time it is easy to fix a bent penis without surgery!
