Hello Everyone!

We had a great topic in our private discussion group about sporadic shrinkage in men's penis's post SCI.. where the penis seems to shrink or invert into the body temporarily. None of the ladies seemed to understand what it is, or why it happens. The commonalities that all the women mentioned are: 
  • It happens randomly (doesn't happen all the time)
  • It happens more frequently if there is irritation in the area
  • It makes it extremely difficult to keep a condom catheter on, even when using skin prep and adhesive. 
Does anyone out there have experience with this or know how to remedy this? We are all completely unaware of ways to deal with this or why it seems to happen. Any tips on prevention or remedies would be amazing! Also, if anyone out there has a medical perspective on this or an explanation, please comment!

Thank you!
