Dear Dr Richards,
I am suffering from a hard flaccid penis (from a stretching and jelqing routine!) and I read your articles on firm flaccid penis and penis enlargement injuries. You state that to heal you need the right combination of amino-acids, herbs, and vitamins & minerals. Could you explain to me what to be taking to achieve this?
Many thanks,

If one overstretches the penile tissues capability while there’s a lack of sufficient prostaglandin E1 and E3 for tissue elasticity, penile damage and collagen release will be observed.
It is a quite common injury.
1.Discontinue sexual activities for a month.
2.Apply hot wraps and the special SR-Cream two time a day.
3.Make a good use of Multi-Alpha, Alpha-Amino, Alpha-AGH, and Ultra-Purified-FishOil to better your nervous and endocrine functioning, boost your androgen hormones production, modulate inflammatory response, charge the CNS, and increase prostaglandin E1 E3 and Nitric Oxide for healing and scar dissolvement.
4.Consider testicle cooling solutions to additionally increase androgens.

Glad if I could help.

Thank you for your reply. I’m quite worried because I first noted a firmness late last year, though seemed nothing serious, and after a short deconditioning break resumed exercises. I continued exercising with this firmness until February when it became more hard. Since then I have done no PE. Still not aware of the seriousness of the situation I masturbated quite a lot for a few weeks, and took some legal highs which seemed to make it worse. Now it seems harder than ever, like a rock a lot of the time.
This week I have searched the internet and discovered this can take years to heal, and there are very few full recoveries made! Now I feel quite scared and anxious, and since last week decided to avoid sex.
So what’s the chances of recovery?
Could I have caused permanent damage by ignoring this symptom?
And does avoiding sex mean even try to avoid getting erections?

Yes, it may take years to heal, or never heal at all. It all depends on proper nervous and endocrine functioning so that enough healing power could be promoted. High local levels of prostaglandin E1 E3 and Nitric Oxide will soften and eventually dissolve the scar. The chances are fairly good if the problems are addressed properly. Permanent damage is possible – however, tissues and nerves can regenerate quite well. You should promote erections, but never with manual stimulation.

I’ve just noticed the list of things to take has changed?
Also you say you should promote erections but never manually, I have low testosterone and am yet to receive treatment, since being ill, I don’t have nocturnal or spontaneous erections. What is some one in my position meant to do?
I look forward to your reply

The low testosterone and lack of spontaneous erections are an indication of a faulty working hypothalamic-pituitary-testicular axis. It is a self supporting condition since less androgens to modulate inflammatory response, testicular tissue health, insulin resistance, energy levels, tissue and testicular health, proper neurotransmitter and hormone conversions, and neurotransmitters homeostasis will result in even more vicious cycle of inflammation to suppress them even further through low dopamine levels and chronically high prolactin.

The illness may have drawn more of your neurotransmitter potential and weakened your system additionally, that is why you are experiencing increased ill side effects.

One should address the issue adequately with the proper supplements. Also, should check the exact testosterone levels, since if the total levels are under 300ng/dL may need some Clomiphene for best results.

I am also suffering from this problem. I noticed my penis go quite hard after jelqing for a few days. My questions are…
-Can this cause weak erections that cause one to squeeze to keep it hard?
-Can this cause difficulty urinating?
-Can this lead to a subtle onset of premature ejaculation?
-Can this be cured completely?

“Can this cause weak erections that cause one to squeeze to keep it hard?”


“Can this cause difficulty urinating?”

Yes, the collagen scar tissue may exert pressure on the urethra.

“Can this lead to a subtle onset of premature ejaculation?”

Yes, through excitation and inflammation of the penile nerves.

“Can this be cured completely?”
