Possible Venous Leak due to Jelqing

Hello, I'm pretty young and healthy and need some advice. 9 months ago, over a period of 6 weeks, I tried a stupid technique called jelqing.

Since then, I gradually noticed that I couldn't easily maintain an erection without manual stimulation. Morning wood isn't present, even though I didn't have it a lot in the first place, and my penis, especially the glans feels mildly less sensitive. I probably caused a mild venous leak or something. I'm feeling quite depressed and I am full of regret because of that.

I don't know if someone had success with going to a urologist/andrologist/angiologist and receiving good therapy. It seems like the overall consensus regards that issue is that doctors can't do much...

Maybe stem cell therapy, surgery, supplements, or something else could help idk.

If someone has any good advice, please tell me.

Hey man, really sorry to hear you are going through this.  I've gone through similar.  First of all, I gotta say your post is refreshing to read in regards to how knowledgable you already seem on this topic!  So that should help you!  A ton of people don't know a lot of what you just mentioned.  A lot of people don't understand venous leak etc.  I'm going to send you an inbox message so check there.  I hope things get better for you.

Before getting into concerns about stem cell therapy, surgery, and such, just go get evaluated by a urologist. It's often normal to go through periods of time where erections are stronger than others. Anxiety can play a big role in that, too.

Don't jump to any conclusions yet - just go get checked out. :) Let us know what happens.
