Even the best-behaved penis has issues from time to time. However, things happen, and penis problems pop up. Here are seven common problems men have with their penises and how to solve them.
#1: Painful Urination
Painful urination is a very common penis problem. There are several potential reasons for painful urination such as:
– Urinary tract infection
– Prostate infection
– Kidney stones
– Medication sensitivity
– Allergic reactions
If a man is suffering from painful urination, it’s best to see a doctor as soon as possible to get a diagnosis since most causes will need medical intervention.
#2: Delayed ejaculation
Most men pride themselves on how long they can last sexually. However, if a man fails to ejaculate after 30 minutes or more, they may have either a temporary or chronic case of delayed ejaculation. Several things can cause this phenomenon including some things as:
– Diabetic neuropathy
– Urinary Tract Infection
– Prostate surgery
– Damage to the nerves of the spinal cord or pelvic area
If delayed ejaculation is a problem that happens more than once, it’s a good idea to see a doctor for a consultation. If it is mental health related, consider seeing a counselor
#3: Premature ejaculation
The opposite of delayed ejaculation, premature ejaculation is a penis problem that afflicts many a man throughout his life. Premature ejaculation is considered ejaculation with minimal penetration or immediately after penetration.
Possible treatment for premature ejaculation includes sexual therapy, psychotherapy, and topical or oral medications. There are also special exercises men can do to help prolong sensual contact before release.
#4: Peyronie’s disease
Peyronie’s disease is a condition in which a man’s penis bends too far to the left or right, generally 20 degrees or more. This makes erections painful and can also make urination uncomfortable. Peyronie’s disease is the result of inflammation and accumulation of abnormal scar tissue around the erectile tissue. It’s said that Peyronie’s disease affects twenty percent of men, mostly over the age of 40.
Treatment of Peyronie’s can include topical creams, injections, implants, penis pumps, traction, and surgery. Treatment results vary, but the pain usually disappears after the first 6 months post-diagnosis.
#5: Penile discharge
Discharge from the penis usually indicates inflammation of the urethra. This discharge can be caused by bacteria, viruses, and yeasts which infiltrate the urethra and cause inflammation and discharge. The discharge can be clear or bloody, thick or thin, and odorless or funky.
The most common reason for discharge is sexually transmitted diseases such as chlamydia, gonorrhea, mycoplasma, trichomoniasis, and ureaplasma. Since medical intervention is required for all conditions, refrain from sex and see a doctor immediately for diagnosis.
#6: Jock itch
Jock itch is a common penis problem that affects men, both jocks and non-jocks alike. Jock itch is caused by a fungus or bacteria overgrowth in the groin. It causes itching, pain, odor, and a rash and is highly contagious.
Treating jock itch is pretty easy. Keep the groin area clean and dry and use an anti-fungal cream for two to four weeks. If it continues for over four weeks, see a doctor for a prescription.
#7: Erectile dysfunction
From time to time, it’s normal for a man to have trouble getting hard. However, if it’s a more frequent occurrence, it might be ED. It can be caused by several factors including age, medication, medical conditions, or penile trauma.
It can be treated quite effectively using medications, sex therapy, supplements, and penile implants. That said, if ED is caused by a medical condition, it’s most important to treat the root cause before treating the symptoms.
One of the best ways to prevent penis problems is to perform a daily penis health regimen. This should include a thorough cleaning of the penis every day followed by application of a specially formulated penis health creme (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which has been clinically proven safe and mild for skin). These special crèmes contain natural ingredients for moisture like Shea butter and vitamin E. They also contain other vitamins like A, B, C, and D to which provide antibacterial protection, cellular strength, promote strong erections, and contribute to overall penis health.
