Let me start out with a brief overview. I am 18 years old. I have never had problems getting or maintaining an erection before until recently. My girlfriend and I sometimes roughly grind against each other ( her rubbing up on my penis). I was wondering if this could cause injury? After one night of this I started to notice a problem getting and even maintaining an erection. Even when I am alone and masterbating this problem exists. My erections also have changed, they point straight out and are not as hard and solid as they used to be. I have been able to have sex like this, however I am concerned with the problem. Furthermore, when I first encountered this problem I noticed some scar tissue on the underside of my penis that I had never seen before. It runs vertical on the shaft of my penis starting at the foreskin going all the way down to the scrotum What could this be from ? Did I infact injure myself? Please help
This is a forum for emotional/psychological information only. You need to be examined by a urologist in order to determine if you have any injury, so make an appointment and ease your mind.
As to the scar tissue: That's something shared by every man. It's called the Raphe line. When male fetuses are developing, the penis and scrotum begin as a structure similar to the outer lips of a female, and then they fuse together at the midline, and this scar tissue is formed. Dr. J
