Venous Leakage: Symptoms, Causes, Treatment

Venous leakage is a condition that occurs when veins in the penis are not able to prevent blood from draining out of the penis during an erection. As a result, blood escapes into the surrounding veins and exterior boundary of penis, causing a weak erection. In a normal male, a penis retains enough blood to maintain an erection, as penile veins cannot drain blood out of the penis, resulting in increased blood flow in the organ. Penis must store blood to become rigid and hard to cause an erection. It stays hard until you ejaculate.
If penile veins that are responsible for holding blood leakage in erectile chambers cannot check blood from leaving the penis, you will not be able to maintain an erection. This is called venous leak.
Also known as cavernosal failure, venous leakage can be the result of either destruction of the surrounding venous tissue or damage to parasympathetic sexual nerves due to masturbation. It is also seen as one possible cause of erectile dysfunction.
Most men diagnosed with the problem experience rapid loss of erection, resulting in dissatisfaction during sexual intercourse. Impotence is also one of the consequences of the disorder.

Causes of Venous Leakage

  • More often than not, men who ingest too many unnatural chemicals, such as cigarettes, alcohol, and street drugs, are diagnosed with a venous leakage condition. These chemicals can not only harm your physical health, but also damage your sexual organs.
  • Mechanical destruction of penis tissue due to rigorous sexual activity may also be blamed for venous leakage. Excessive masturbation, indulgence in unwarranted penile exercises, or over ejaculation can cause damage to the penile blood vessels and surrounding nerves.
  • Venous leak may occur in males with vascular diseases that affect blood vessels, resulting in improper arterial blood flow. Besides, aged arteries and plaque buildup due to high cholesterol risks blocking blood vessels, which is also one of the contributing factors for venous leaks. Vascular disease further risks causing erectile dysfunction.
  • The condition is also associated with certain nerve conditions, diabetes, and anxiety.
  • Some men suffering from Peyronie's disease, which involves buildup of scar tissue in the erectile chambers of the penis, experience curved, painful erections.
  • Damage to the penis due to trauma can result in venous leak problem.
  • Certain sexually transmitted diseases are also responsible for causing this problem in a small percentage of men, as they may cause scar tissue buildup in the penis.
  • Men suffering from anxiety are unable to relax muscles, which may interfere in your ability to achieve an erection.

Venous Leakage Symptoms

Venous leak is believed to be a cause of impotence or erectile dysfunction in men. The condition occurs when veins in the penis cannot prevent the outflow of blood required for a sexual stimulated erection. In other words, damage to penile veins due to excessive masturbation, chemical deposition, mechanical injury, or plaque buildup causes them to leak, allowing blood to escape to the periphery, thus resulting in a weak, poor, or soft penis erection.

Venous Leakage Symptoms

Some of the most common venous leakage signs include:
  • Chronic soft erection that is insufficient for sexual stimulated erection
  • Difficulty achieving and maintaining erections
  • Position-dependent erectile rigidity
  • Persistent erectile dysfunction
  • Soft glans synrome
  • Loss of quality of erections
  • Resistance to traditional erectile dysfunction medications

Mechanics of an Erection

Venous Leak signs are apparent to a male, who is not able to achieve erections in the first place. If erection does happen, they cannot maintain it for long enough time required for sexual intercourse. This is primarily because there is not sufficient arterial blood flow and pressure through the arteries, which is required to keep the penis rigid for an erection. This might be due to problem with the drainage of the penile cavernosal tissue, which otherwise offers resistance to blood flow from the penis veins during an erection and constricts movement of blood outside the spongy chambers of the organ.
As a result, with adequate blood flow within the penile veins, you can achieve and maintain an erection for an adequate length of time. On the contrary, venous leakage occurs due to the outflow of blood from veins in the penis during an erection. The veins do not work properly to retain the blood within the organ, which results in a soft erection, which ends pretty quickly after it is achieved.

Other Causes of Venous Leakage

Some other possible causes of venous leak may include testosterone deficiency, trauma, anxiety, nervousness, stress in the organ. Some males with Prostate Resection Surgery might also experience venous leakage symptoms. Peyronie’s disease in a few men is also related to erectile problems. A man suffering from the disease experiences malfunctioning veins in the penis, as they are unable to constrict the blood inside, resulting in the blood flowing out even before the completion of the erectile process.

Venous Leakage: Treatment and Cure

Venous leakage is a hateful condition that affects a few men. It is a highly detested condition that leads to rapidly disappearing erections, as blood escapes from the penis. In a normal male, the inflow of blood expands the spongy tissue in the penis.
A range of venous leakage treatment options are available, including:
  • Penile constriction band
  • Testosterone hormone replacement
  • Artificial penile implantation
  • Vacuum pump
  • Venous leakage surgery
  • Arterial reconstruction
  • Penile injection
  • Venous leakage ligation
Venous leakage ligation is one of the most popular treatments for venous leak problem. The procedure involves resection of the deep dorsal veins and joining of the cavernous vein with the cavernous artery while ensuring safety of the dorsal nerves and artery.

Homemade Edible Powders: Beetroot, Onion, Garlic, Ginger, Lemon, Orange, Sambar, Kurma, Garam Masala

The title says it all. This post is all about edible powders that can be used as flavoring agents, natural color, and to make food visually attractive. What more do we need? Though I am not too much in favor of drying food and storing the same, this is the best option for those days when these veggies are out of season. During the season, please make it a point to enjoy these fresh and flavorful. There's nothing better and healthier than fresh produce, right?

Okay so the idea to make these powders popped up in my mind as I had too many beetroots at home. When nobody was too eager to have them, the best way to still consume these beauties was to sundry them to powder. I did exactly that.





Then I wondered if I can sundry lemon peels into powder just like we do to orange peels. I have been using orange peels as a face pack thus far. But since the baking bug has bitten me badly, I plan to use it as an edible powder for cakes and cookies too. Fingers crossed for the results though, sin…

The Best Multigrain Digestives: An Airfryer Recipe

The best multigrain digestives? I know I have shared too many digestives recipes but this one is my best.

Diabetic Diet Cake With Watermelon: A Vegan Recipe

While people are still debating whether watermelon is a diabetes-friendly fruit, I still stick to my notion that diabetics can have this fruit for its sheer hydration effect. Not only this, the fruit is loaded with minerals, nutrients, and antioxidants that make it a health-friendly food. However, diabetics with kidney issues should avoid watermelon. Anyway, let's come back to the watermelon cake recipe for diabetics. Well, this cake uses another fruit - banana- which even I do not think is diabetes-friendly. But I went ahead with including a banana for this recipe merely to keep the fat content low. I hope you all know that a banana is a good substitute for an egg for an eggless cake recipe.

Since an egg is also loaded with saturated fat, diabetics should avoid it at any cost. So I had to choose between an egg and a banana for this diabetes-friendly cake, and ended up voting for this humble fruit - which is one of my favorites too. Yes!

When you think of a vegan diabetes-friendl…
