A 32 year old man was rushed to hospital after his penis turned black and swollen after engaging in ‘vigorous’ sexual intercourse.
The man from New Delhi heard a ‘snapping’ sound during sexual intercourse which then resulted in him suffering from severe pain and caused his penis to bend.
After an examination he was diagnosed with penile fracture.
Doctors carried out ultrasounds which revealed that he had torn the wall of the right corpora cavernosa.
Corpora cavernosa are two chambers which run the length of the penis and are filled with erectile tissue.
Blood flows into the tissue which causes the penis to harden.
Penile fracture occurs when an erect penis undergoes blunt trauma during sexual intercourse or masturbation.
Penile fracture can cause other problems in the future including erectile dysfunction.
This is because scar tissue will form as the penis heals which will prevent blood flow to the tissue.
Erectile dysfunction is a condition where the penis does not harden and expand when a man is sexually excited.
