I am in my mid 20s

I am not sure what has happened, i was working out and was struggling with the weight i was lifting and had to rest the weight on my body (60kgs or so), so save my face from the weight. As a result I kept the bar with the weight for about 5 seconds, on the stomach and then moved it swiftly to my hips.

I have noticed that after the work out my erection has gone, completely. I have never had a problem, always get hard numerous times in a day, and wake up hard every morning.

There is no pain in penis area or when even I pass urine, though i have noticed that there is a nasty smell for a day or so, much stronger then usual when I urinate.
There is no visible swelling in the area on my pelvis, or on the penis area, or testicles.

I a trying to figure out what have i damaged, and what shall I do. I am planing to speak to doctor and go to hospital soon, but I want some advice, and ideas about what I could have damaged for this problem to happen, and ideas about remedies if there are, or if I have caused myself irrevocable damage.

its been 3 days since I have noticed the problem
Any advice would be so appreciated. I am so worried.

Thank you

Hello and welcome to e health forum.

From the description provided it seems that acute onset of ED, indicates that you might have had a rupture of the erectile bulbs in the penis.

You might benefit by consulting a urologist and undergoing a penile doppler test, which will help to diagnose the exact cause.

Proper treatment in such a situation would need a surgical correction of the defect in the penis.

I hope this helps
