In a perfect world, men would be 100% happy with their penises and they would function perfectly too. Unfortunately, we don’t live in a perfect world but this doesn’t mean that penis problems need to affect your life.
Common penis problems and how to treat them
- Bumps on the penis
Having bumps on the penis is not uncommon but when you notice them for the first time, it can be a bit alarming. Bumps are usually caused by irritated oil glands, allergies or even friction from clothing. These bumps are nothing to worry about and should be left as is. However, if the bumps are painful and are filled with fluid, it’s time to see a doctor.
- Erectile problems after drinking
A few drinks might make you feel confident in the bedroom but this doesn’t mean that your penis is going to have the same idea. Too much alcohol can lead to decreased performance in the bedroom because it reduces blood flow to the penis. If you stick to moderate levels of alcohol consumption, you shouldn’t have to worry about impotence or other problems in the bedroom.
- Premature ejaculation
There’s no exact answer as to what’s considered premature ejaculation but generally, if you’re able to ejaculate without much stimulation, you could have this problem. There are a number of exercises and medications that can be used to treat this issue but research shows that penile fillers can be used to treat this too.

- Delayed ejaculation
If it takes you longer than 30 minutes to ejaculate, you may have delayed ejaculation, which can be a temporary or chronic condition. Anxiety, stress, depression, nerve damage and infection can all cause delayed ejaculation but a doctor can help you treat the underlying causes to reverse this problem.
- Peyronie’s disease
This condition causes a man’s penis to bend too far to the right or left, making erections quite painful. Peyronie’s disease is caused by the accumulation of scar tissue inside the penis and affects 3% – 9% of the male population. Fortunately, there are a number of creams, injections, products that can be used to treat this condition. A doctor will be able to tell you about your options.
- Penile discharge
Penile discharge occurs when the urethra is inflamed due to an infection or STD. If you’re experiencing discharge, it’s important to get tested as soon as you can.
- Erectile dysfunction
Almost every man will struggle to get it up at one point or another but erectile dysfunction means this problem occurs more often. Fortunately, the inability to ejaculate or achieve an erection can be treated with medication, sex therapy or penis pumps. It’s best to stay away from any herbal supplements that claim to help with this issue as they’re more dangerous than effective.
