I had overused a penile pump, should I be worried?

I had overused a penile pump over 5 days 10 days ago and my penis is still cold and not sensitive to the touch. The color is kind of pale. It isn’t responding for any erection. It is limp. Will it recover? Should I be worried? Thank you for the help.

Excessive use of penis pump can reduce oxygen supply to the penis and can cause nerve damage leading to paleness, lack of sensitivity and erection..

However it is generally not permanent and tend to get better over time..

But if the symptoms continue to persist without any improvement for more than 2-3 weeks consult a Urologist and get evaluated..

Hello, yes excessive use of the penile pump can block the blood supply to the organ. In turn causing necrosis and increased sensitivity. If you also have accompanying fever please get examined by an urologist in person
