Patient : Do I have a penile fracture?
A few days ago I was masturbating more aggressively than usual because I have been taking Zoloft for the past month and it has decreased my ability to orgasm. I finished and I ejaculated without any pain. Since then, I haven't been able been able to get an erection. On the bottom of my shaft there there is redness and a small bruise that seems to have gotten darker over the past few days. I have been able to get a minor erection in the morning (not fully erect) but that is all. No matter what I do I can't get fully erect. Also I have minor pain that feels almost like needle pricks occasionally, it doesn't last long maybe a minute at most. It also seems like I have diminished feeling and sensitivity. Is this a minor injury that will heal on it's own or is this a problem that needs immediate attention? Also I didn't hear a popping sound but maybe I missed it.
