    Ok I have been masturbating quite frequently in the last 2 weeks. I didn't believe I was being overly rough but perhaps too much. A couple of days ago I started to experience pain in my penis. It is sore when not erect and sore when it gets erect. It feels swollen even though it is flaccid. My penis doesn't appear swollen and looks normal but it is a throbbing pain. I also feel at the moment that I am not able to get my normal erection and it feels engorged. My question is could it be that I have over masturbated and the soreness is due to that I haven't masturbated in a day or so but I have been getting frequent erections and they are uncomfortable. If I stop this for a few days will the soreness go away.
