I am 43 years old.

About 10 years ago, I took an SSRI antidepressant called Luvox for OCD. I was on it for about 8 months. While I was taking this drug I found it difficult to ejaculate, and during one masturbation session that went on for probably 3 or 4 hours, I became kind of rough, and I lost sensation in my penis. Immediately afterward, the skin on the shaft of my flacid penis became wrinkly, and my flacid penis was smaller than usual. To this day the skin on the shaft is sort of pushed back and there appears to be a small bump or protrusion under the skin, on the shaft, just before the head. (I think this what is what pushes back the skin and causes it to wrinkle, but I could be wrong). Also, when I am erect, I feel a nerve or blood vessel along the right side of the shaft that runs almost the entire length of my penis. It protrudes very slightly through the skin. I can actually feel my pulse if I rest my finger on it. I also have some varicose veins on the shaft.

I am sure from reading the website that I am sexually exhausted. I am no longer taking any prescription drugs. I don’t use street drugs, but I do drink on occasion (maybe once a month)

The one thing I am optimistic about is that I can still get solid erections, and I also get natural erections while I sleep and when I wake up in the morning. I am able to masturbate myself to ejaculation. I JUST CAN’T FEEL ANYTHING. THERE IS NO SENSATION AT ALL.

Questions

1) Based upon what I have described, does it sound to you like the injuries can be corrected? If they can’t, I would rather you just tell me. I don’t want to spend money for products if there is no hope. I’ll just have to accept that it isn’t gonna work out.

2) Do you think sensation can be restored just using the tablets or capsules that are sold on the website without using the SR Cream? (I think I might find it hard to limit my ejaculation frequency to 1 time per week if I were doing daily massages).

3) If you think my problems can be corrected, please tell me exactly what to do, and how long you think it would take to heal the damaged nerves

Feel free to ask any more questions if you need more info, and once again, thank you for taking the time and for your excellent website.

Message Body:
WHen applying SR cream, should you have a full erection? or a half erection? or no erection at all? Do you put it right where you think the collagen scar is? or do you apply it someplace else?

thank you

ANSWER
Hello,

What you’re describing is actually a relatively common occurrence. Let me break it down for the sake of convenience:

About 10 years ago, I took an SSRI antidepressant called Luvox for OCD. I was on it for about 8 months. While I was taking this drug I found it difficult to ejaculate, and during one masturbation session that went on for probably 3 or 4 hours, I became kind of rough, and I lost sensation in my penis.

Yes, a loss of penile sensitivity / delayed ejaculation is really common with SSRIs / SNRIs. It can get notably worse if one experiences temporary lack of free and available androgens in the blood. For instance, it could even happen from exercise / training / overtraining. You may want to take a look here as well: http://cure-erectile-dysfunction.org/antidepressants-and-sexual-function . All in all, I’d say that SSRIs / SNRIs increase the chance of penile injuries by at least 20 to 30% by directly influencing major hormones, neurohormones, and neurotransmitters.

Immediately afterward, the skin on the shaft of my flacid penis became wrinkly, and my flacid penis was smaller than usual. To this day the skin on the shaft is sort of pushed back and there appears to be a small bump or protrusion under the skin, on the shaft, just before the head.

It does sound like a straightforward case of corpus spongiosum damage and subsequent collagen scar tissue release.

Also, when I am erect, I feel a nerve or blood vessel along the right side of the shaft that runs almost the entire length of my penis. It protrudes very slightly through the skin. I can actually feel my pulse if I rest my finger on it. I also have some varicose veins on the shaft.

Yes, what you describe is actually common with injuries leading to one or more varicose veins. What happened is:

1.) The initial injury damaged corpus spongiosum’s tissue integrity, leading to a collagen tissue release, which in turn completely impaired proper blood vessel functioning on the whole side of the penis.

2.) A single vein (in some cases even more) became enlarged and varicose because the tissue was unable to properly pinch or contain it during erections anymore. The vein then became almost completely “stand alone”-like. You will probably notice that it is just under the skin but is not actually part of the tissue underneath anymore. In most cases you will be able to grab it separately of the tissue underneath with two finders.

3.) The damaged corpus spongiosum exposed an artery as well. It is what you’ve been feeling as a very thin yet rigid cord. Almost like a pulsating guitar string.

4.) You have also probably noticed lessened rigidity in your penile underside and glans, with the penis bending downwards around the midshaft in mid erection. In full erection it will look normal for the most part since the increased pressure will still be able to modulate the less elastic collagen tissue.
The corpora cavernosa are usually not affected at all, producing a contrast of rigidity and softness (of the glans, underside, and surrounding tissues).

5.) You experienced a loss of tissue sensitivity due to damaged local penile nerves. It is a common occurrence and most of the times completely reversible.

1) Based upon what I have described, does it sound to you like the injuries can be corrected? If they can’t, I would rather you just tell me. I don’t want to spend money for products if there is no hope. I’ll just have to accept that it isn’t gonna work out. 3) If you think my problems can be corrected, please tell me exactly what to do, and how long you think it would take to heal the damaged nerves

It is usually very reversible. As you noticed yourself, it is a condition which leaves one’s penis in a functional condition and many men don’t seek any help with it. Some men will even improve without any support, mostly in terms of sensitivity and collagen scar tissue dissolution. However, there are a lot of things that can be done to restore the tissues to their original state.

In fact, SR-Cream has been designed for this exact purpose in mind. The first step would be to dissolve any internal collagen tissue by reducing any ongoing minor inflammation (you may frequently notice it after masturbation), and increasing elasticity prostaglandins E1 E3 and Nitric Oxide for tissue healing and restoration.

With the restoration of original tissue elasticity and health, the varicose vein will significantly lessen in size and start functioning almost normally. Regrettably, to this point we’ve been unable to completely integrate the vein back into the restored tunica albuginea.
The cream will also address injuries inside the vein itself.

Other than that, you should also consider some basic practices that are by now proven to help, such as:

– Gentle tissue massages.
– Cold and hot wraps. Best done in the shower with cold and hot water alteration in 2 – 3 minute periods.
– Additional vitamin E cream applied topically.
– Healing visualization. Here particularly helpful would be: http://yourhealingmind.org/product/heal-your-penis , as we’ve noticed that guided imagery healing frequently produces results even beyond conventional medicine expectations.

2) Do you think sensation can be restored just using the tablets or capsules that are sold on the website without using the SR Cream? (I think I might find it hard to limit my ejaculation frequency to 1 time per week if I were doing daily massages).

Yes, I believe that it is possible to be almost completely restored even without them. You’d just need to improve your lifestyle in general to increase your androgens levels. Masturbation is to be avoided, though, as it is usually sustaining minor levels of inflammation and is impairing nocturnal nervous tissue regeneration.

Of course, a combination of Multi-Alpha, Alpha-Amino, Alpha-HGH, and Ultra-Purified-FishOil will definitely prove to be beneficial in that regard.

When applying SR cream, should you have a full erection? or a half erection? or no erection at all?

We have not noticed any significant statistical alteration based on that variable, so you may want to individually go for whatever you feel is producing best results.

Do you put it right where you think the collagen scar is? or do you apply it someplace else?

I’d suggest applying a thin layer on the whole penis with double the amount on the affected spot. The mentioned approach has been shown to lead to best results.

UPDATE
Thank you for the thorough response. One more quick question. I have noted the websites ‘ejaculation frequency’ guidelines. When attempting to heal an injury, is it best to follow these guidelines, or is it better to just completely abstain from masturbation/ejaculation until healing occurs.

ANSWER
Right, I’d suggest completely ignoring and avoiding similar frequency while recovering from any form of penile injury. The best way to go is usually abstinence on a monthly basis, with a maximum range of 1 to 4 ejaculations per month.
