Does the penile suspensory ligament heal on its own if streched/sprained? How long should one expect recovery? Any specific treatment? Thank you!

In brief: Yes

Ligaments take 3-4 weeks to heal.
If pain continues past that time, seek out a urologist.

In brief: Torn vs. Sprained

The suspensory ligament connects the penis to the pubic bone.
It aids in maintaining stability of the erect penis and can be damaged from sudden downward force while erect. Soreness or swelling may occur; once resolved, as long as erections remain usable, there is no treatment needed. Recovery time is variable.Surgery has been reported in small series where curvature or ed has resulted.
