My penis is numb, though not to a great extent. I have masterbated excessively in the past and I believe this is the source of my problem. I have also had ways of masturbating which were abnormal, such as face down position placing great pressure on my penis, which in addition to having a numb penis I have a very curved penis. I also have a problem with having excessive skin on the body of the penis, also coming from the past habits. I also seem unable to have the same control over stopping urine flow as I did in the past. Other than that I am able to have and hold and erection and have orgasms somewhat normally. I have never used any drugs or alcohol or have had any surgery.
I don't know if there are any treatment available to bring back lost sensations and also address the other problems. I have heard of things like steroid injections, rubbing cream, etc, but I'm not sure what to trust. If anyone can describe all the ranges of treatment, what they do, how expensive they are, etc, it would be greatly appreciated. Before I go to see a urologist, neurologist, etc, I want to know what they could potentially do for me. I want to know if I need to do something now or whether I can wait a few years.
This problem is really making me depressed. I am unable to pursue any relationship with girls because I fear I can't have a fulfilling sexual relationship. I fear sex would be a very disappointing event for me. I think about suicide constantly, but not so intent on doing it but more fantasizing for an end to it all. I know life is not all about sex, and I try to keep telling myself that, but I feel that it is a huge part of life that I am missing out on and may never regain again.
before you go making a lot of presumptions, see your doctor, and ask him or her. the numbness and curvature may not have anything to do with your old masturbation habits, and there is a chance they might be easily taken care of.
Whoa bud, calm down. First, if you've never had sex don't worry about how it might "not" feel because you don't really know. Alot of us have extra skin on our penis, this may be because you are uncircumcised (you didn't say) or if you were circumcised it may have been a "loose" cut that left some extra skin. I would doubt that masturbation caused this....if it did, we'd all have lots of extra skin hanging around down there as I doubt your masturbation habits are different than many of the rest of us. By the way, your masturbation didn't cause that curvature...that too is normal, many of us have curves in one direction or another so stop worrying about that. I'd say that you're just a normal guy who has masturbated alot and may not experience pleasure as much as you once did. Please don't worry about this and certainly it isn't anything worth ending your life over....nothing it worth that for sure. Your penis isn't what makes you a man, we've all got one. What matters is that you take care of it and that it works when you want it to. Until you've tried it out, you don't know that. So, take some deep breaths and be cool my friend. Don't focus so much on this that you create problems over it! Write back for other info and feedback or support, and ask all the questions you'd like....we are all curious about this stuff and there is alot of help here on the boards!
