Post Help. I think I've broken my pubic bone

This is a somewhat personal topic, but it really hurts and I need to know what is going on. The background is simple. I am a sophomore in college and just starting to take my premed requirements. But I am dating this girl, and she was helping me *do something* and she bent my shaft (sorry - best word I could think of) the wrong way about 90 degrees while it was hard. I didn't hear the bone crack, but it really hurts every time it erects. That happened a week ago.

I don't want to go to the doctor and have to tell him what I was doing. But I am pretty sure that my pubic bone is broken. It does not hurt when it is soft, but when the pubic bone goes into my shaft and makes it hard, it really hurts.

What can be done? I don't know how a pubic bone gets fixed. I imagine that a cast would be embarassing, because people would see it through my pants and would know what I had done. Any help would be appreciated. I couldn't find any information about this part of me in my biology and human anatomy books. I guess the authors felt it was inappropriate to put that information in there.

That doesn't sound like a pubic bone problen. It sounds like some soft tissue damage (have younoticed any color changes/bruises/pain on urination...etc?). But, a doctor will need to do some physical exam on the affected part to really know what is going on.

There's no bruising or things like that. I know that doctors are meant to have no trouble touching things like this, but I kind of don't want to (a) drop trou in front of a doctor and let him fondle me, and (b) explain what I was doing and how my girlfriend didn't know that it doesn't bend that way.

I'm sure that the doctor would also try to stimulate me so he can examine my pubic bone through my erection. To me, this would be the most embarassing thing ever.

Is it possible that she snapped my pubic bone, or is it more likely to be that she just bent it the wrong way and it hurts?

Thanks for your help.

It sounds like she bent it the wrong way. The pubic bone is not that easy to break from what you said you were doing.

Don't be embarrassed about going to the doc. a ten minute embrassment is better off than having some erectile dysfunciton for the rest of your life. If it bothers you that much, just go to see a doctor in the neighboring city of something so you will never see him/her again.

dude, you need to find a new chick...preferably one who knows the dynamics of the human penis. What the hell was she doing, speed-shifting while playing 'racecar driver'???

You're probably just bruised (i.e. soft-tissue damage). The male pubic bone is pretty damn thick...not much chance that you've broken it unless there is some other underlying pathology (the big casino). My advice: rest the member, and get a new friend to play with...if she's that rough with her hands you probably don't wanna see what she does with her mouth (ouch! [Eek!] )

Dude, there *is* no bone in your member! The pubic bone is entirely another thing altogether. If she bent your... thing... ninety degrees in the wrong direction or whatever, you sure wouldn't affect any bones. Def. sounds like tissue damage. I have no idea what the extent of that damage is, and you know what? Only a doctor who exams you would. Trust me on this: I'd much rather face up to fifteen minutes of embarrassment than go the rest of my life with a permanent erectile disfunction just because I didn't want a doc fondling my 'nads. Request a female doc if it bothers you so much!

Really, it's a serious matter. Best of luck!

Uhh, humans don't have a bone in the "shaft", even when it's erect.

Er, great one, doc! So why is it called a boner if there's no bone? I'd suggest that you get yourself to a high school biology class as soon as possible and learn some basic anatomy. And why is there a pubic bone if it isn't for supporting a boner?

Dude, forget medical school. You're not touching me if that's the extent of your knowledge of human anatomy.

Don't worry about what the doctor thinks about what you've "done." Trust me, they've seen a lot crazier things, and it doesn't faze them. Wouldn't you rather have it taken care of then be painful and impaired?!?

I have to agree. There is no bone. It is made hard by blood flow.

Like the others said, erections are caused by blood flow. Familiarize yourself with your anatomy:

Thank you so much for posting that diagram Papa Smurf. I was thinking of doing the same thing. Pfiller has a thing or two to learn. People had seemed to be trying to explain that fact, but then pfiller said:

quote:"Er, great one, doc! So why is it called a boner if there's no bone? I'd suggest that you get yourself to a high school biology class as soon as possible and learn some basic anatomy. And why is there a pubic bone if it isn't for supporting a boner?
Dude, forget medical school. You're not touching me if that's the extent of your knowledge of human anatomy."

pfiller, I normally do not insult people, but considering this post, you are a damn MORON. How can you insult somebody elses' knowledge of anatomy when:
1. They are correct
2. You are wrong AND you obviously never took any biology class you mentioned that none of your books mentioned and concluded that the authors must have found it unimportant. Did you consider maybe there was no mention of a broken penis bone because there is no penis bone?. [Pissy]

You really believed the pubic bone was a bone that went into the penis to make it erect? The pubis is inferior and medial to the left and right sides of the pelvis,(that area anyway) it is a stationary bone that has no function with external sexual organs. [Laughy]

Boner is a slang term so I don't see how you use that as a basis for concluding that it has a bone supporting it. The proper name is an erection, which consists of vascular tissue saturation(see diagram) with blood in the penis.

Quote form pfiller
"I'm sure that the doctor would also try to stimulate me so he can examine my pubic bone through my erection. To me, this would be the most embarassing thing ever."

A physician exam will be needed to asses damage, but I promise you that the doc will NOT "stimulate an erection" during the exam as you eluded to in the original post. That would be a little thing called criminal sexual conduct, harassment, and sexual battery. Besides, how can he "examine the pucic bone through your erection"? That makes no sense at all. How is that even possible?

Quote from pfiller "when the pubic bone goes into my shaft and makes it hard, it really hurts"

Damn boy, I bet that would hurt. I would be screaming if my pubic bone impaled my penis somehow. [Wowie]

Quote form pfiller "What can be done? I don't know how a pubic bone gets fixed. I imagine that a cast would be embarassing, because people would see it through my pants and would know what I had done."

Thats funny, and that is all I have to say about that. [Laughy]

Feel free to post your questions, but if you are going to assault somebodies reply to you and insult their intelligence, you better be damn sure you know what your talking about, because right now you look prett rude and stupid.

Again, I am sorry for the rudeness, but that nasty reply you made to soccerroo was so errornous, judgemental, and rude that I just could not resist.

Correct! As an aside, some primitive primates such as monkeys still rely on a bone....

Take a look at how it really is. Or certainly how it really feels.



And I'm sorry about saying that it was the pubic bone that was broken. My friend actually now tells me that it is the pubocockus bone that is used to erect the shaft. I imagine that this is where the slang term 'cock' comes from.

I will take your advice and make an appointment to see the doctor though. But can any medical students reading this actually confirm that the doctor will not try to stimulate me to really see where the pain is coming from? After some of my previous exploits with my girlfriend, I am concerned that I might get a little too stimulated and end up ejaculating.

OK I just hadda answer this [I'll regret it later]:

This being an internet anonymous forum, did it ever occur to you ernest folk answering, that the original post was just trying to get a rise out of you [no pun intended, I think ]?

The more he answers you guys the more I'm convinced of it, and he wouldn't be the first one trying this kind of thing with the medical community on the Net.

OK, chalk it then up to my Nu Yawka cynicism, but I ain't buyin' it.

Thank you Medic171, for the support.

Umm... Pfiller... please do feel free to look through *any* high school, college, or medical school anatomy atlas and you will quite plainly see that there is no bone in the penis. There are indeed some species that have bones in (called an os penis) that gives them a permanent "stiffie" so they can have sex at will, but I emphasize, HUMANS DO NOT!

The term "boner" is slang and probably comes about because an erect penis is "hard," much like a bone. Yeah, I'd be screaming if a bone really did jut up into my member!

We're trying to help you/reassure you here. I don't particularly feel up to attacking anyone's personal statements or problems, because we've all got enough of our own. You came on here with a legitimate question and you included some information that wasn't entirely accurate, so some of us felt we were doing you a favor by pointing out the errors. There's no call to attack anyone because the information is right. Let's please not kill the messenger, yeah?

That said, I do certainly plan to apply to medical school [Laughy]
