Tumescence Problems and the Too-Hard Member: Understanding Priapism


When considering tumescence problems, the first thought that springs to mind is usually a soft male organ. However, in some cases, the opposite problem may occur. A male organ that remains hard for more than four hours can be a sign of non-ischemic priapism, a condition that requires medical attention. – PowerPoint PPT presentation

Title: Tumescence Problems and the Too-Hard Member: Understanding Priapism

Tumescence Problems and the Too-Hard Member
Understanding Priapism
By John Dugan
  • Untold men dream of possessing a male organ which
    maintains its hardness for hours (if not days) on
    end, believing that such would render god-like
    status upon a man. In fact, tumescence which
    lasts for too long a time (as in the condition
    known as priapism) can be a detriment to male
    organ health indeed, priapism is generally
    considered a medical emergency and is not
    something to wish for at all. There are
    basically two forms of priapism, and the one
    known as non-ischemic priapism, while still
    serious, is perhaps somewhat less alarming than
    ischemic priapism.

The difference
  • Basically, ischemic priapism occurs as
    persistent tumescence characterized by little or
    no cavernous blood flow and abnormal cavernous
    blood gases (hypoxic, hypercarbic, and
    acidotic). What this means to the layman is that
    it occurs when blood flows into the male organ to
    allow it to become hard, but then cannot escape,
    causing the persistent and painful tumescence.

  • Non-ischemic priapism, on the other hand, is
    most often secondary to traumatic rupture of a
    branch of the cavernous artery and uncontrolled
    pooling of blood into the sinusoidal spaces of
    the corpora cavernosa. In plain English, the
    male organ experiences a trauma which ruptures an
    artery or vessel. Blood flows into the male organ
    but isnt trapped there to the same degree as
    with ischemic priapism. With non-ischemic
    priapism, theres a persistent tumescence, but
    its usually not as fully rigid as with the
    ischemic version and usually comes with no pain
    (other than the initial pain which caused the
    trauma in the first place).
  • Sometimes, non-ischemic priapism may not be due
    to trauma to a vessel or artery instead, it may
    come about because the central nervous system has
    undergone an injury. And in some other instances,
    non-ischemic priapism may be a result of treating
    ischemic priapism via a process known as shunting.

Is it dangerous?
  • So if non-ischemic priapism is not as serious as
    the ischemic kind, does a man still need to be
    concerned about it? The answer is yes. One of
    the problems that can arise with non-ischemic
    priapism is that a man has a persistent
    tumescence but its not a full tumescence.
    And in some cases, he is unable to attain the
    full hardness, without which, penetration
    during intimacy can become difficult (and in some
    cases, impossible.) In some cases, there may also
    be a possibility of infection, which can bring
    about other issues as well.

  • In the majority of the cases, non-ischemic
    priapism is self-resolving meaning that given
    time the situation heals itself. (Sometimes the
    application of a cold pack to the male organ
    wrapped and not directly placed on the skin can
    help to hasten a resolution.) Nevertheless, its
    important to bring it to the attention of a
    doctor and to discuss whether the best course of
    action is to wait and see or whether other
    steps should be considered. For example,
    sometimes a gel might be injected into the male
    organ which can help block the blood flow to the
    male organ so that it can soften. (The gel is
    later absorbed into the body.)

  • Although non-ischemic priapism is not a medical
    emergency, it still requires a doctors
    attention. And since a man wants to present his
    male organ at his best, using a top-shelf male
    organ health crème (health professionals
    recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which is clinically
    proven mild and safe for skin) can help maintain
    male organ health. Its best to seek out a crème
    that contains L-carnitine, as this ingredient has
    neuroprotective properties that can help maintain
    proper male organ sensitivity. The creme should
    also include a combination of moisturizers, such
    as shea butter and vitamin E, to maintain tone
    and texture of male organ skin.
