Manhood Injury of the the Suspensory Ligament: What Men Need to Know

A painful manhood injury is just about every guy’s worst nightmare, and one of the primary motivating factors for keeping a close eye on one’s manhood health. Although many men know about the rare but painful manhood fracture, very few are aware that damage to the suspensory ligament of the manhood can also be a cause for serious pain and discomfort – as well as an impediment to positive male function.

The suspensory ligament

The name "suspensory ligament" is a mouthful, which may be one reason most non-physicians are not familiar with it. A ligament is fibrous connective tissue that generally connects one bone to another. Ligaments are found throughout the body, including in the pelvis. The suspensory ligament is basically what connects the manhood to the left and right pelvic bones. It also plays a big role in providing maximum support for the manhood when it is firm, helping it to stretch up and out as the blood flows in and fills up the manhood during times of sensual excitement.

Manhood injury

It’s easy to see the important role that the suspensory ligament plays in proper manhood functioning and why it is important to avoid injury to this connective tissue. Fortunately, damage to the suspensory ligament is not an everyday occurrence in humans. (Interestingly, it does happen rather more frequently in animals, especially horses.)

The most common cause of a problem with the suspensory ligament is trauma to the manhood, especially if it occurs when the organ is engorged. For example, if the firm manhood is pushed down hard, it may cause the ligament to tear, either partially or fully. This can cause a significant degree of pain in the moment, and lingering lesser amounts of pain. The pain is likely to increase during periods of excitement. Because of the role that the ligament plays in supporting tumscence, it also means that a man’s member may not be as full or as hard as is normal.

This "pushing down" on the firm manhood may occur when a partner accidentally handles the manhood incorrectly, or if a man is thrusting during pleasure at an incorrect angle. Sometimes this can occur during sleep, when a man is experiencing tumescence and rolls over on it. It can also be the result of an object, such as a baseball, hitting the firm manhood with great force.


If a man sustains a manhood injury, he should contact a doctor as soon as possible; seeing a urologist is generally a better first step than seeing a general practitioner, who is likely to recommend a visit to a urologist anyway.

If the damage to the suspensory ligament is minor – meaning, the ligament has been strained but not actually torn or detached - the doctor is likely to recommend pain relievers, application of soothing compresses and rest. However, in cases in which there is tearing or detachment, surgery is often recommended. Ligaments do not have the same propensity to heal naturally as many other parts of the body, and so "re-sewing" the suspensory ligament is often necessary in order to correct the manhood injury.

Treating damage to the suspensory ligament, or any type of manhood injury, is easier if the manhood is already in its best possible health. Regular use of a top drawer manhood health crème (health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil) can help in this area. Vitamin C is well known for its role in collagen production and the resulting male organ tissue firmness, so most men will wisely gravitate toward a crème that includes this all-important vitamin. Since trauma can also result in de-sensitization of the manhood, a crème that also contains acetyl L carnitine is recommended. Why? Because acetyl L carnitine is neuroprotective; it helps prevent peripheral nerve damage to the manhood due to rough handling, thereby protecting the degree of pleasurable sensitivity which men associate with the manhood.
