|Hi All. I have the same problem most people on this thread have. About a year ago now, I started to experience much weaker erections. I'm 28 years old, and otherwise in good health. Up to a year ago, having an erection meant a very rigid penis, an an even harder penis head.
It took me a long time to find out that the dysfunction was due to a lower back injury. After much investigation, I have diagnosed myself with a pinched/ trapped Pudendal nerve. The Pudendal nerve is the main nerve responsible for both sexual arousal and sexual motor function. It is documented that cases of lower back injury can lead to a trapped Pudendal nerve.
According to the information i came across, when you injure your back (muscle, ligaments, etc) your body first creates a web of scar tissue that acts as a scaffold inside your body. Your muscles can then be rebuilt using the scar tissue as scaffolding. However, once repaired, the scar tissue often remains there.
What then happens is your muscle and the scar tissue both compete for space in your body, resulting in nerves being entrapped or pinched.
Having an entrapped Pudendal nerve is a very distressing feeling; you know something is very wrong with your sexual organ but you have no idea what it is. A couple of my symptoms are:
Lost of feeling in the penis
Strange sensation when urinating (as though not fully in control)
Altered sensation when ejaculating
Erections that are lost quickly
Soft penis head
For a long time I thought I had a veineous leak as the symptoms all point to it, except for the urinating part.
Once I found what was wrong, I was able to find a solution. I have started doing Bikram Yoga (hot yoga). Bikram yoga is amazing has been doing wonders for my condition.
Sadly, i am not able to go as often as i wish i could at the moment. But to give you an idea, after doing it for 10 days in a row non-stop, my erections for before the accident were back at 90%. My penis head was hard as, it was throbbing, I had the full spectrum of lust a is supposed to feel. It was great.
Since then i have been very busy with work so I haven't been able to go more than twice a week. I have been making slow progress and i am probably at 60% at the moment.
