Jelqing Damage
About a year and a half ago I tried some jelqing exercises for about 6 months.  Soon after I stopped, a year or so ago, the damage I had caused became obvious.  Right now things are still changing and have improved relative to where things were a few months ago.  However, their is still noticeable damage to the Glans of my penis.  I seems like there isn't any tissue in the glands anymore, it feels empty and lifeless.  When I have erections the head does not fill with blood until I am close to ejaculation, even when this occurs the head is soft but full.  There is scar tissue that i can feel just behind the glans.  Also, my penis is generally less elastic, feels like the tissue has changed significantly.

I am currently trying to dissolve the scaring with message, hot water, nutrition, exercise, supplements, etc...  is there anything else that you would recommend? Can the glans regenerate? is stem cell therapy a possible solution?  are there any clinical trials of stem cell therapy for damages to the penis such as mine?

I am 22 years old, and if I wasn't a virgin before I did this it wouldn't have happened, lesson learned.  This has really decreased my sex drive and confidence.  Thanks in advance for any advice.

Hello,
Jelqing may often cause injury to the penis or nerve compression which may cause such symptoms and hence is not advocated. I would suggest you to consult a urologist and get an ultrasound done. Other investigations which can be done are MRI or a cavernosogram (a test where a thin hypodermic needle is inserted into one area of the penis before a radio contrast solution is injected and X-rays taken).
It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.

Hi guys. Let me just tell you my experience. I signed up an account just to post this.

About 2 mths ago I started jelqing as it claimed it was the only "safe" method of achieving a larger penis. I did it after warming up with a warm towel and also used the towel at the end, and I did the motion with soap for about 15 mins per day. I planned to do it for 3 mths and measure the results afterwards. After 6 weeks I noticed my penis was feeling different when I was having sex. I would not be able to last very long, and instead of the pleasurable "plateau" stage, it went straigth from warm up to just before orgasm thus missing any pleasurable feeling and having to constantly stop during sex so as not to *** early.

After examining my member after a few sessions like this I realized it felt very different. It felt very numb, it was not as hard when erect, and the head was a lot less sensetive than usual. I did some research on the net and noticed a lot of men also had similar experiences with jelqing. I then decided not to do anything sexual for 1 mth to let it recover, but after 2 weeks I was already concerned enough to book a doctor visit as it did not seem to be recovering as well as I hoped. Erections were harder to get, the underside of the penis head (the sensitive bit) was no longer sensitive and I could not really get a nice "plateau" sexual stage either during sex or masturbating. Today I had the appointment and although the doctor luckily said there probably isn't any major damage and recomended to give it a month to heal, I have read stories where others did not notice these changes early enough and did really serious, very much permanent damage to their most precious organs including impotence etc.

I am not sure how my situation will go, hopefully it will improve in time but I am just putting this up as a caution to any others who may be reading this who might be heading down the same track. If you're doing it and it's working, good stuff but if you notice any of these symptoms please, for your own damn good, consider my article and do some research on the very serious and permanent damage you can cause. I hope I was lucky enough to stop early but I for one know I'll never venture into this again and seriously there are girls out there who will accept you no matter what, just as you'll probably accept a girl no matter what her boobs size is, for instance, if she's right for you. All the best to you.

most likely surgery will be required with a hard flaccid go to an interventional radiologist if your symptoms get worse if you stand. they will give you the information on the best healing don't touch your manliness or you will put it at the point of now repair., avoid ice, immediate cease any type of smoking, everyday the operations become better done so there is hope. avoid having an erection also, make sure if you are on pharmaceutical medications for such illness like schizophrenia, add, or adhd you consult with a chiropractor for the nerves in a bad spine can cause the symptoms of those cause "personalty disorders" cause those symptoms and those illness are related to environmental surroundings and how you grew rather then genetics. A bad spine will prevent healing of the penis properly without a chiropractor. only take l-arginine after a surgery and avoid systemic enzymes because they effect testosterone negatively which is hard to get back making the muscles in your penis hard to recover. Jelquing should never be done because it will increase damage. last off do not stress about if your are not in tremendous pain because it could always be worse. relax take a nap get some "go to sleep" herbs from gnc and if see a urologist that says a hard flaccid is fine you were scammed put your cash with the people that can save you. Lastly if you lose some sensitively in the man hood dont be discouraged. Work on your overall physical self wellness and if you have a healthy brain experiment with entheogenic drugs if you can get them legally and the safe ones and follow a healthy diet. those drugs can help "earthlings" deal with their problems in safe in environments. do not smoke anything all smoking is bad for your health and nor to do i recommend the use of illegal illicit drugs. I stand for the healing of nations. If you have money get a Kenmore air filter the new one. The negative ions will help you with decreased damage risk until you get a real opinion. Don't go out to bars or people social until u r healed because it will make you want to be like before and you will stress out causing more damage. Remember the man hood is second to the brain because what good is man hood if you don't know whats going on around you. IF you have less then a 50% of success on a surgery do not opt for it unless you are in pain that feels like being stabbed with a knife repetitively. Avoid ibuprofen, and do not get alpha blockers unless you don't have a venous leak and won't heal. last but not least don't be suicidal put yourself in a cold dark room with a comfortable bed until you can get healed with a fan running and no other people except a girlfriend

Jelqing totally screwed up my penis.  A week after using it  I noticed a discoloration and my erections were like "spongy-squishy" and limp. I continued for a month and eventually became totally impotent. It's been 2 years and the discoloration remains.  I'm not totally impotent but my functionality still has not returned to what it used to be and I have'nt regained my size that I had previously.  I think it worked for some men but can be total crap for other men.

(Extracellular matrix) watching tv came across the national geografic channel and there was this episode called "how to build a beating heart", and there was an old man that cut off part of his finger in a accident with a small airplane. His brother working at this lab, send him some of this extracellular matris and the old man not only grew his finger but bone, nail, nerves and even his old same prints. Searched in the web for information found that with this extracellular matrix this doctor called Dr. anthony atala urologist not only grew diferent organs but rabbits peniles, actualy funtionaly penises. Maybe this is the answer for the prayers, maybe this can reegrow back new tissue and nerves.

It healed . Can't tell exactly the time b'cos psychology was playing tricks of defeat before even trying to get laid .

Ok bro. All I'll suggest is not to concentrate on it.Get your mind off it. Just try and get yourself busy with something . and decide to go on sex vacation for one year . It will heal along the period and for this long period too, your mind would also be eased from the adverse psychological hung which in its self even perhaps makes you feel defeated and affects your actually good physical performance .  For sure after this period you will feel 100 per cent YOU but the challenge is for your partner to compromise with you during this long no sex period. Also try and take some food supplements and most importantly engage in this new life style activity called EXERCISE / Gymnastics /Jogging . Some arm pressing and squatting are very good . I must say these little little stuffs worked for me . One thing I came to realize during my terrible experience of mine was that, being sexually fit is one very crucial element to earn respect of  women and in this case your partner.. If one year is too hard for you, then perhaps one tempting moment you could get your socks brown . A delay stray could help prolong getting laid .It has side effect so wash it off after at least six minutes before slipping in raw unless you want to put on a rubber to protect her from the numb effect.   Good luck brov ! Am on skype .

Hi, Im writing because I think i damaged my penis by jelqing. I felt pain goind from ending of glans to the bottom. It's been two weeks since that and some little bruise occured, half of my penis (right side) is less sensitive that other (left side looks fine). i try not to focus on my penis right now but i wonder if i can get healed like u Frankbazo. I jelqed only for two days and it was realy light routine but my erections are about 80% - i can get morning erection but still it isnt the highest quality. I tried to masturbate twice and finished and i felt a little pain on the right side, . How did u healed? Im freaking right now so please anyone update your status about injury and please tell my that it can be cured naturally without surgeon.

i think im healed, but discoloration remaining - i have regular sex with climax and everything is alright. i wrote "i think" because sometimes glands are way cooler than the rest of the penis. Go to urologist ad excercise a lot. For me worked my work which consumes most of my time, so i didnt think about my penis for some peroid of time. Stop masturbation for 3-4 months, eat well, sleep and everything should be going well, but as i wrote first thing is urologist. Good luck

My penis is also damaged from jelqing. It destroyed my active sex love life. Its a personal tragedy you have to keep to yourself. Urologist mostly laugh at you. They can offer no cure only damaging pills. Its been 6 years now. Damage is permanent unfortunately. I would like to see class action law suit against the false advertisers of this technique.  Penis pump machines cause similar permanent damage to your penis. I heard k-lazer therapy can help. But its hard to find a medical facility that has this laser machine.
