Stress (Definition)

Stress affects most people in some way. Acute (sudden, short-term) stress leads to rapid changes throughout the body.

Over time, however, repeated stressful situations put a strain on the body that may contribute to physical and psychological problems.

Masturbation is not known to cause this, regardless of the frequency. ...Read more

Sebaceous cyst?: This is probably a sebaceous cyst. Whatever the cause, if it isn't red, sore, or growing larger, probably it is harmless. But see a doctor if you remain concerned.

Can do a preg test: It is very hard to get pregnant fully dressed; but if fully dressed, from whose pants did he pull his penis out? The way to stop worrying is to do a urine pregnancy test one week after missing a period, or at least 3 weeks after having sex. One must read and follow the test instructions in order to get a reliable result. ...Read more

When I am stressed sometimes I feel some liquid flowing downwards towards my penis. Why is that and what is that? Is it blood or any chemical that flows downwards during stress or anxiety? Thanks

Feelings and reality: Hi RoodleK Feelings of fluids moving in the body are often virtual..the result of stimulation of sensory nerves that would respond if there was fluid moving. Each body has a complex of reactions to stress, fear, or anxiety. This may be one of your responses. Both blood and urine do flow towards the penis, but its not necessary to have actual fluid flowing to have the feeling. Good luck!! ...Read more
