User :   I just finished having vigorous intercourse with my wife. I was having a difficult time reaching orgasm and pulled out and and was able to achieve orgasm finally by using my hand. We had been playing sexually for a couple of hours with my erection going from very hard to flacid depending on my level of stimulation and all felt normal with the exception I was having a difficult time achieving orgasm. When I finally did I cum very hard but noticed about an hour later that my foreskin just below the head had become very swollen on the top and bottom of my penis, making my penis looked a bit deformed. The head and glans remain normal but the swelling concerns me greatly. I seem to be controlling it with ice and some ibuprofen I took about 45 mins ago. Also there is no pain. Do I need to see a doctor?

User :   thank you doctor, you saved me a visit to the emergency room.
Doctor :   Abstain from intercourse for next 24 to 48 hours if the swelling do not subside
Doctor :   If you can keep away from masturbation that is good, but no hard rule
User :   one more question...should I continue with the ibuprofen?
