Is bent penis on left side with an indentation post intercourse normal?

default
Posted on Mon, 23 May 2016
Question: Hi, About a month ago I had intercourse with my wife, nothing rough and the next day found that my penis was bruised down the left side (colour ranging from red to purple to dark purple), the bruising has gone away but my penis now bends to the left.

I did notice that at the location of the bend there is a bit of an indentation, less than the size of the end of my little finger in size.

I've been doing some research as well and believe the most common cause for the bend is the resultant scar tissue caused by the bruise. I've also read that traction may be the best and safest method of fixing the bend.

Brief Answer:
You have sustained injury to Tunica albugenia .

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for your query,based on the facts that you have posted it appears that you are getting bending of your penis on left side on erection .This has happened after intercourse with your wife .

I shall be happy if you can post me few more details to help me in making comments on your problem
1) Were you having a intercourse in woman on top position ?
2) Was your penis erected hard and slipped during intercourse ?

Based on the facts that you had bruising of the penis ,I think you have sustained injury to your penis causing damage to the sheath called Tunica Albugenia that envelops erectile tissue which has healed up and resulting scar tissue is causing disparity of length and elasticity of the Tunica Albugenia causing curvature of the penis on left side .

Consult qualified Urologist for clinical examination and get following basic tests done to confirm the diagnosis.
1) Ultrasound Scanning of Penis .

If the curvature of the penis is minimal and does not pose any difficulty in having penetrative sex no treatment is advised .However if the curvature is more than 25 degree and you have difficulty in penetrating vagina ,you will need to undergo surgery of Placation of Tunica Albugenia .

Hope I have answered your query ,please feel free to ask if you have more questions , I shall be happy to help you .
Thanks and Regards.

Partner was lying on her back with legs elevated and I was lying on my right side. I don't believe there was any slippage during intercourse. I didn't even know it had occurred until the next day when the bruising was evident why in the shower.

The bend is less than 25 degrees

Brief Answer:
You need to do Ultrasound Scanning of penis .

Detailed Answer:
Hello
thanks for feedback .

The scarring of the Tunica Albugenia is primary cause for bending of the penis resulting from unnoticed trivial injury This needs to be confirmed before taking any decision regarding treatment .

Do not attempt stretching of the penis as it will cause more damage than help.

Thanks and Regards.
