Posted on Tue, 3 Nov 2015 in Sexual Health
Question: About 6 years ago, I engaged in urethral play with a former girlfriend. ever since then, I have had chronic premature ejaculation (20 to 30 seconds, worse sometimes). What i found is that the is something after developing along the entire length of the penis. In between the corpus spongiosum and corpus cavernosa, there feels like an 'enlarged muscle', it seems mainly to be on top of the corpus spongiosum. Did I damage a muscle here, sometimes I cant completely feel empty after urinating and always dribble a bit. What is wrong here? what are the possible causes and what type of procedure will fix it. My main concern is with the premature ejaculation, before the incident, I lasted a good 5 minutes and now 20 to 30 seconds. I have tried dapoxetine and they made no difference. Im pulling my hair out on this, feel very worried and feel i may never get it fixed

One thing I forgot to add was I get frequent nocturnal emissions since this happened, especially on a full bladder

Thanks for your question.

You ask a couple things here. One, did you damage a muscle via urethral play, two, what is the cause of your premature ejaculation.

The answer to the first question is you may have damaged the smooth muscle inside the penis. Urethral play is highly dangerous and this may be a consequence of that. In order to really test this hypothesis, you need to visit a urologist to undergo an imaging procedure of the urethra. This may include a scope and/or an MRI. Surgical repair may be needed.

The answer to your second question is this: it is possible nerve damage in the area is causing premature ejaculation. However, it may simply be that there is no connection between urethral play and the development of PE, it may be a coincidence. Chemical imbalances can cause PE as well. Dapoxetine is a decent medication, but if it didn't work you can try SSRIs such as high-dose Paxil or Luvox. This will often solve the problem.

There is a direct connection between the urethal play and PE - it never happened before the urethal play and now happens afterwards.

If there is damage to the smooth muscle, what has been damaged and where, is it in the corpus spongiosum or the urethra?

What type of operation/surgery is involved if damage is found - how does smooth muscle get damaged and are there non surgical ways of correcting it. This may be a smooth muscle stricture travelling from the glans to the internal sphincter

also, why is there nocturnal emissions when there wasnt before this

Detailed Answer:
It is impossible to tell what part of the musculature has been damaged without getting an MRI.

There are surgical ways of stitching torn muscle. If it is a stricture, it may need stenting.

I had my 1st ankle surgery in 2009 in which the superfisicial peroneal nerve eas but & buried into my bne. The second surgery in 2010was a rght lateral ligament repair, right peroneal tendon tenolysis repair,brevis.The third was in June 2112 in which tenolysis of the pernolysis brevis with transfer of the peroneus brevis to the longus resulting peroneus brevis intact but very tendinotic , therefore completely cut out,and the tendon sheath repaired. The last surgery November 2112, I had to have the sural nerve and a branch of the superficial peroneal nerve cut & tucked into muscle. My surgeon(& I agree) tells me that s it, he cannot do any more. But the thing is, I am still having severe pain and swelling He did tell me that there would always be pain due to the lose of the tendon but I had expected better then where I am at. Granted, I am only in my second week of therapy but I am really worried about where I am goign to be in the long run. I like & trust my doctor very much but would like some input from another source. Thank you. Janet Treash
