I'm 20 years old and I'm having a problem with my erections. I was masturbating a few months ago and when I climaxed no ejaculation occurred. Instead my penis just got super tense and firm which was painful. Several days later I began having pain in my left testicle.I went to see my family doctor and explained my predicament and he said the pain was due to the Lexapro I had been prescribed and takin' for a couple years. He switched my meds and the pain went away when flacid. But since the event I feel a very tight restrictive feeling on the left side of my penis and even loss of sensation. I can achieve orgasm and ejaculate a somewhat normal amount but afterwards my penis stays uncomfortably firm and tight. Even when my erection goes away there is a tight tug on the left side of my penis. I'm concerned and not sure what could be causing this. I'm sure it's not cancerous or anything related since this all began during masturbating.View Thread
