Unrelated: When getting an erection the veins just under the skin of the penis may become more prominent but that will not interfere with urination. The venous swelling will diminish normally after intercourse. If you use a medication like Viagra (sildenafil) and it takes longer than 3-4 hours for your erection to go down get to an emergency room quickly.
