OMG! A 4-HOUR ERECTION?
OMG! A 4-hour Erection?

Don’t get excited too quickly… this is not something you would ever want to have or experience!

 

It is called priapism and it is a persistent, usually painful, erection that lasts for 4+ hours without sexual stimulation. Priapism occurs when blood in the penis is trapped and unable to drain. And it is no laughing matter because if not treated right away, it can lead to permanent damage and scarring; erectile dysfunction can be the unfortunate result.

 

The causes of priapism range from medication use to depression and even the result of sickle cell disease. Immediate medical attention is necessary. It is an uncommon condition and in one third of cases, the cause is unknown. 

 

According to Mayo Clinic, it is most common between ages 5 and 10 in boys and ages 20 and 50 in men. So while many of you may giggle at the thought of a four hour erection, it truly is no laughing matter. Be careful what you wish for!
