What if I get an erection during my penis examination?

What if I get an erection during my penis examination?

That would be normal: Boys and men can get erections with or without their penises being touched (such as in an examination). That is what happens in normal people.

So, erections are no big deal (you don't have to say anything if it happens). ...Read more

I have always had delusions for many years about my penis, it is all fine my penis functions correct but can my thinking cause erectile distinction?

Yes: You are correct to realize this connection and I expect it's not a delusion but a fear experience. Many, maybe most, such sexual dysfunction problems are psychologically driven. A specialist psychotherapist for sexual issues can help in most cases. In yours it may only need to avoid physical symptoms so that's great! Best wishes ...Read more

What is the correct angle for a womans hips and penis during his erection in order to optimse insemination?

What is the correct angle for a womans hips and penis during his erection in order to optimse insemination?

Depends on cervix: The penis should be as deeply inserted in the vagina at the point of ejaculation. Some women have differently angled cervices and therefore difficult to generalize. After ejaculation, the women's pelvis should be rotated up 20 degrees with pillows for 15 minutes to allow the semen to liquify and give more sperm a chance to find the cervix. ...Read more

My penis doesn't hang it's hides can I correct this is it blood flow can u strectch your penile ligament to help it hang lower can I make it straight

Penis Norms: No. Please do not damage your insides just to have a 'hanging penis". Many penises are 'growers' as we call them. The only thing that one should ask in this situation is does it get erect when I want it to? Does it reach orgasm when I am sexually active and does it ejaculate appropriately. ...Read more

I suffer from libido as a result of taking Lexapro (escitalopram) for G A D.My Dr stated to inject my Penis rather than Viagra. Am I correct. Thanks?

I suffer from libido as a result of taking Lexapro (escitalopram) for G A D.My Dr stated to inject my Penis rather than Viagra. Am I correct. Thanks?

Lexapro (escitalopram) kills libido: I suspect the Lexapro (escitalopram) is the culprit. You have another option for an anti-depressant which can be an add on, buproprion. I suspect there is more to your story if the doctor has advised injections instead of a trial of Viagra or the like. Personally, I would try other options for my patient prior to advising injections. Have a frank discussion with your doctor regarding the anti-depressant. ...Read more

I am on Lexapro (escitalopram) for GA D.I suffer from loss Libido as a result. My Dr states that He can inject Meds into Penis rather than Viagra. Is he correct.

Neither: If your problem is one with libido, meaning the desire to have sex, an injection or a medication that stimulates bloodflow to the penis will do NOTHING to make you WANT to have sex and so your mental health is something you need to discuss first, possibly with your prescriber for another SSRI that won't affect your libido. Best of luck. ...Read more

Got std test having discharge doctor told me to milk penis and swabbed the outside of the opening didn't go inside is this the correct way to do it?

Got std test having discharge doctor told me to milk penis and swabbed the outside of the opening didn't go inside is this the correct way to do it?

Not ideal but OK: As you seem to know, the preferred method is to insert a swab 2-3 cm into the urethra. However, if abnormal discharge is present, probably doesn't make any difference in test reliability. It's OK to just collect some of the discharge for testing. ...Read more

Penile examination? What is a penile examination like? Is it awkward? Does the doctor touch your penis? Is it a male or female doctor? I am nervous, embarrassed and I might not go if it is going to be weird.

Which: Which doctor it is, is based on which doctor you go to. You can request a male or female whichever you feel comfortable with. This is a standard examination. Yes the doctor has to touch your penis for appropriate exam briefly. It is not awkward for the doctor as this is normal for proper physical exam. Nothing to embarrassed about, discuss your concerns and hesitation with your doctor. ...Read more

Can urologist take my test and examination of my penis to check my erectile dysfunction as iam not able to get it up or will he give me viagra (sildenafil)?

Can urologist take my test and examination of my penis to check my erectile dysfunction as iam not able to get it up or will he give me viagra (sildenafil)?

ED: If you are 20 years old and having problems with erections, you should be examined by a urologist. Simply giving out Viagra (sildenafil) does not answer the question of why you're having difficulty. Most young men in your age group have a non-organic cause of erectile dysfunction, however there are some serious conditions that can cause it in your age group and should be ruled out ...Read more

I have had a red and tender penis for over a year now. Started while in a relationship with an ex-girlfriend. Before going out with my current wife a month after my break up, I had a full STI panel (except for herpes). My GP examined me and found no signs

I have had a red and tender penis for over a year now. Started while in a relationship with an ex-girlfriend. Before going out with my current wife a month after my break up, I had a full STI panel (except for herpes). My GP examined me and found no signs

For sure no STD: Since you have been professionally examined and no abnormality was found, I have to believe that nothing is wrong -- i.e. that your impression that your penis is "red and tender" is mistaken. Maybe it's primarily psychological. But if you are convinced there is definitely redness and tenderness, get a second opinion from a dermagolotist. In any case, no STD causes such symptoms. Good luck! ...Read more

My doctor ordered a Sacrum coccyx MRI, however, the report says MRI pelvis and the findings say MRI of the bony pelvis and sacrum. IS this correct?

My doctor ordered a Sacrum coccyx MRI, however, the report says MRI pelvis and the findings say MRI of the bony pelvis and sacrum. IS this correct?

It is difficult: To determine whether the study was tailored properly without knowing exactly what was performed, and what the clinical indications were. However, if you are concerned that they didn’t mention coccyx, that is not an issue because the coccyx is connected to the sacrum, and any study that visualized the sacrum would necessarily include the coccyx. There would be no way not to. ...Read more
