Men who have an erection for a certain period of time and this happens to them continuously and permanently should see a urologist immediately!
If an erection lasts longer than 4 hours, it will damage the penile tissue. These patients must see a doctor before 4 hours to get an erection. Treatment is also surgery.
According to Salamat News, Dr. Mohammad Reza Safarinejad, an urologist, wrote on Salam Dr.’s website: “Permanent or prolonged erection is a disorder that can be caused by drug abuse and some diseases.” But the most common cause is the use of drugs related to psychiatric illnesses.
Leading these drugs is phenothiazines, which cause prolonged erections when taken in large amounts. A prolonged erection means that the penis does not return to its original position after the sexual need and intercourse have been satisfied. If an erection lasts longer than 4 hours, it will damage the penile tissue. These patients must see a doctor before 4 hours to get an erection. Treatment is also surgery.
At present, there are drugs that pharmacies provide to patients without a doctor’s prescription, and men also use this drug as sexual doping. These drugs may cause a prolonged erection. There is another condition called sickle cell anemia, which causes red blood cells to form sickles.
This disease is common in the south of our country. Sickle cell anemia lowers blood oxygenation, which can lead to a prolonged erection. The only advice to patients is not to waste time observing a prolonged erection because many of them refuse to go to the doctor because of shame, but they face serious consequences such as complete destruction of the penis.
