My husband went to the Dr. and was told he had a bruised penis which happened during sex. He said it would probably be okay in 4 to 6 weeks. What I need to know is while it is still swollen if my husband gets a hard on will that break another blood vessel? I didn't ask the Dr. because he seemed embarrassed about the whole thing and couldn't wait to get us out of there. When will it be okay for us to have sex again? The Dr. said to put ice on it also but my husband says that's the only time it hurts is when I put Ice on it.
If the doctor said it would take 4 to 6 weeks to hea, then that is how long he should avoid sex so he doesn't reinjure it Either that or when he tries and it doesn't hurt might be ok to do it, but be gentle.
Your husband has a fractured penis; the corpora cavernosa (the erectile organ inside the penis) can be broken if the erect penis is suddenly bent. Just having an erection doesn't normally do it. Most likely he or you rolled onto his erect penis while you were having sex. Most likely it won't happen again, with a little bit of care. But if in doubt, he should ask his health care provider.
