    Swelling of blood vessel on penis after taking male enhancement tablets.
    An_251159 posted:
    Two days ago I took an male enhancement drug called Prosol tion.
    So things didn't turn out as i expected that night so I went to sleep.
    At three in the morning i awoke with this huge erection and a swollen blood vessel that was enlarged and painful. It was right under the head.
    Woke up surprised and masturbated immediately. The pressure was then relieved from the penis. However, I still have this tender blood vessel about 3/4" wrapped around my penis.
    i fear that blood is dried up in the vessel.and it wont go down without medical intervention.
    I took niacin to see if would help and noticed that there was a stinging sensation at the inflamed blood vessel.
    There is no blood or rupture in the area.Just swelling and pain if pressure is applied.
    Will this go away by itself?
    Any Ideas?
    counterso responded:
    It does not sound like a blood vessel irritation, it sounds like a lymph inflammation. Blood cannot "dry up" in a vessel. It just doesn't work that way. Masturbating when you have penis pain is completely stupid and could easily cause significant damage from your further irritation.

    Immediately stop taking those pills. There is no such thing as a male enhancement drug that works. They're ALL fakery. EVERY doctor will tell you this. You are risking significant harm by using them, as many are contaminated with illegal drug elements. FDA citations are issued nearly every day against these types of pills for being dangerous, fake, or contaminated.

    You should see a urologist to determine whether you have done any damage. And in the meantime, so sexual contact or masturbation until your penis has been completely healed (no swelling or pain) for a whole week.
