I was experiencing pain when I had erections. It was like a muscle strain sort of feeling. I was concerned until I figured out why I was experiencing pain.
When we men dream, at some point during our sleep cycle, we get erections, regardless of what we are dreaming about.
I really was straining my penis. It hurt because I was wearing pajamas to bed, and my erection was pushing against the fabric of the pajama bottoms, which were keeping me from extending far enough comfortably.
I sleep naked now, and have been for months. I've experienced no more erectile pain, because my erection, during sleep, is not pushing against my pajamas. I make sure not to tuck in the covers too tight as well.
Some of you experiencing the type of muscle pain in your penis during erections might just need to sleep without wearing anything to bed.
I am glad I solved my problem, and I hope I have helped some guys with this post.View Thread

The following is my opinion and observations ONLY based on over 15 years of testosterone therapy. It's a life-long constant work-in-progress.
Always maintain a healthy respect for, and a genuine fear of, the power of ANY hormone you are adding to your body. This is serious stuff. Learn what to expect and when. Know what LH, FSH, estradiol, and DHT are. Err on the side of under-dosing because overdosing by even a small amount may trigger some side-effects. Miss a dose ? Don't double-up to catch-up. Skip a dose one day a week, or so, and note how you feel. Be always mindful of possibly inadvertently contaminating your environment. Segregate your laundry from all others'.
Start at a low dosage level based on the initial test and slowly increase it over a period of weeks, if not several months, till you reach your optimum daily dosage level based on your response rather than only the raw numbers from a lab test. A quick response at the beginning may mean that you're actually shocking your system at an overdose level that you don't want to maintain over any period of time. I've talked to dozens of men and several women and with EVERY one of them their doctor started them off at a high dosage level and then had to sharply reduce it because it triggered side-effect reactions. Worse with the women--acne and facial hair. Yuck ! At your optimized dosage you can probably blunt small effects of DHT,dihydrotestosterone, by taking about 180mg of saw palmetto extract daily.
Avoid suggestions from athletes or body builders. They are taking large doses to "bulk up" and will have to go through a detox regimen when they decide to come back down. You're just trying to be "normal" in this environmentally estrogen-soaked, testosterone-suppressed world we live in---mostly from plasticizers.
Avoid the patch. You can't adjust the dosage level to meet your needs, and it will probably itch and leave disk-shaped bruises that may last for months. Avoid injections. They tend to shock the system and are expensive. By far the best are gels (cream), and if you use a compounding pharmacy instead of Androgel, Testim, etc., you will probably spend less out-of-pocket than your copay if you went through your insurance carrier.
Don't think you won't benefit from the therapy because your test results show you're only near or slightly under the bottom of the arbitrarily determined "normal range" of total testosterone. If you have the symptoms, then you need the therapy. Period.
Seems like everybody focuses on the "total T" level and overlooks the important "free T", DHT, and estradiol levels. Having an endocrinologist periodically review your therapy isn't a waste of money.View Thread
Whether you're needing a 5mg or 0.5mg daily dose, you will probably save a lot of money by using a local coumpounding pharmacy. Compare their price against Androgel, etc. before your get your prescription filled.View Thread

Veins in your penis will usually have a blue color, but sometimes you may have what looks like a "vein" appear that wasn't there before, but it's something else. It may be accompanied by some swelling, particularly around the corona (head) of your penis, and often it appears after some vigorous sexual activity.
This is often a lymph channel inflammation. Lymph channels usually follow near blood vessels, but the lymph system has no pump to move the fluid. Irritation of soft tissue, such as prolonged masturbation, vigorous intercourse, or even confinement, can cause an irritation of the lymph channels, particularly below the head (corona) of your penis.
It is usually accompanied by some discomfort, especially when further irritated by additional handling. The swelling may be mild or severe. Your doctor may recommend a supervised regimen of high-dose anti-inflammatory drugs for a prolonged time period (do not try this on your own). This may or may not help.
Treatment REQUIRES leaving the area alone. That means no sex or masturbation until at least a week after it appears to be completely healed. If you aggravate the area, the swelling is very likely to get worse or persist longer. These inflammatory situations usually disappear on their own as suddenly and mysteriously as they appear. It may take 2-6 weeks for it to go away, but make sure you give additional time to heal so the irritation doesn't come right back.
Some exchange members have also tried a cream that helps clear lymph congestion to speed up the healing process (found under Resources in this Exchange). Use with caution if you decide to try this.View Thread
