    Penis swelling

    After a prolonged masturbation session. After it ended my penis as stayed somewhat swollen and slightly tender. I can urinate normally and can get erections, but avoiding them. Wondering if this may be serious. It seems as if the swelling has gone down slightly.
    All help appreciated.
    thank you

    Your penis is not a rod of steel. You've clearly abused this delicate organ and caused injury from rough handling. You need to leave it alone for several days, actually a whole week longer than it takes to go back to normal. The inflammation will subside over time. Treat your penis more gently and use sufficient lubrication next time. In the meantime, you will need to leave it alone completely, no sex or masturbation until it has had at least a full week of looking and feeling normal. It may take several days or even weeks to recover.
