I came upon this site a few months and wow...what a great resource. I am currently beginning week 4 (day 22) of abstinence (no PM or O) and I can certainly say that I feel better, but as many others have mentioned, it's definitely not a linear recovery.
One question I had (and I didn't find anyone else writing about it previously) was about over-masturbation and blood flow to the penis. My penis seems to have gotten smaller when it's flaccid, like my adrenaline (fight or flight possibly) is on overdrive. It is very annoying because it looks almost sickly and isn't very sensitive (can be cold as well). Does anyone have any insights into this and/or has anyone seen improvement after giving up PMO?
Also, my libido is very low. I'll go to the bar and not feel turned on at all, though I can tell the women I'm seeing are very attractive. I'm embarrassed to engage them because of this. Anyway, we'll see how it goes, hopefully time will tell.
