Doctor :   Hi
Doctor :   How can i help you
User :   Hi
User :   Once again I had another unexpected erection in a situation that would result in embarrassment if anyone noticed. When no one was looking, I pushed my erected penis forcefully downwards, which resulted in popping or snapping at the base of my penis. Immediately my erection faded; however, 4 hours later, I can't seem to get an erection up.
Aside from the inability to hold an erection (i can only manage to get an half ass erection), everything else seems fine, i.e. no bruising, hemorrhage, pain, pain when urinating, etc.
I have had this popped sensation at the base of my penis during an erection when too much downward force is applied. But, I don't remember become erectiledisfunction.
Doing some search on google lead me to diagnostic of penile fracture, but it seems that penile fracture is very painful, which I am not in any short of pain.
User :   Is this temporary or should i seek immediate medical help
Doctor :   There is nothing called fracture
Doctor :   it doesn't contain any bone
Doctor :   only muscle and blood vessel is involved in erection
