FAQs on Penis Health

What benefits does circumcision give me?

First of all, whether circumcised or not, you need to keep your penis always clean. Wash properly when taking bath. If your penis is not circumcised, pull the skin back gently and clean the head of the penis. If you don’t do this, smegma (dead skin cells) can build-up leading to smell and infections.

In regards to Sexually Transmitted Infections, a circumcised penis is less prone to contract easily. However, practicing safe and healthy sex is always important.


Bent penis – Is it normal?

It’s perfectly normal for a penis to be slightly bent or curved. If the bend is significant and if you have pain when the penis is erect, you may be suffering from Peyronie’s Disease.

Check our blog articles on ‘Penis Curvature’ and ‘Peyronie’s Disease’ for more information.

Will I lose my sexual stamina if I don’t have sex or masturbate regularly?

No. This is a myth. You won’t lose sexual stamina or interest in sex if you don’t have sex regularly or masturbate. But, having sex regularly has its own health benefits.

How much should I ejaculate? Is it a problem if I am ejaculating very less?

PEVR – Perceived Ejaculate Volume Reduction, a condition when you notice that you are ejaculating a lower volume of semen than usual. This can be because of frequent sex or masturbation in a short time. If this is the case, there is nothing to worry about. You need to give your body some time to produce good amount of semen and sperm.

If you are seeing less volume of ejaculate even after a gap of good number of days, please see your sexologist to make sure everything is alright.

How can I remain sexually active for long?

Men can be sexually active even after their 50s and 60s. It depends on their lifestyle, the food they eat and how well they take care of their health.

Being obese and diabetic reduces the ability of getting erections. Unhealthy and stressful lifestyle will also take a toll on your sexual health. If you are having problems getting an erection while you are in your 40s or younger, you must see your doctor as soon as possible.

Erectile Dysfunction can not only lead to mental stress, it can strain your relationship with your partner.

Why does the colour of urine change at times?

  1. If you over hydrate your body (consume more liquids than you actually need), urine will be clear in colour.
  2. A little bit of yellowish to straw colour is considered normal.
  3. Dark brown or orange coloured urine indicates that you are not having enough water / liquids.
  4. Bloody, blue, green coloured urine indicates infection or other medical condition.

I am visiting the toilet more frequently, is that ok?

  1. If you are on any medication and visiting toilet more frequently to urinate, talk to your doctor.
  2. If not, then check if you are drinking more than required liquids / water.
  3. Otherwise, this may indicate Urinary Tract Infection or diabetes or Interstitial Cystitis.

My penis smells little bad, is it normal?

The groin area sweats and can give out the smell of sweat. This should go away after a good bath. This is normal. But, if the smell is foul and strong, then that indicates a medical condition such as:

  1. Urinary Tract Infection
  2. Yeast Infection
  3. Balanitis
  4. Gonorrhea
  5. Chlamydia

You can suspect Gonorrhea and Chlamydia if you had unprotected sex with a new partner. You have to talk to your doctor as soon as possible and get tested. It is important that your partner also gets tested and treated.

Penis doesn’t have any bone, can it break or fracture?
