Wat tests available 4 checking Pubococcygeus muscle, I know I've damaged it, symptoms ED, penis numbness no sensitivity, weak erections, wat can I do?

Be evaluated...: Let a real professional help you. If you are obsessed with what you thought, no one can help you although no one is perfect. Besides, an isolated injury to pubococcygeus muscle is very unlikely, what you felt is more likely related with neuropathy of pudental nerve, and not all symptoms can be cured but for the most cases just be modified to a bearable level. So, work with doc — no easy way out. ...Read more
