CENTRE of Mercy health centre in Papua New Guinea has seen more than 200 cases of the injected and two men inserting foreign objects in their penises.
The health centre in Lae reported that they had attended to two cases where foreign objects caused complications, and between 200 and 300 men having issues with their injected penis.
Nurse Franky Nenai said the foreign object were slid down to the base of the penis during sexual intercourse and caused it to swell.
“It was painful that they come in for treatment.”
He said there were men inserting different kinds of objects like a piece of tooth brush, small round metal, and rings in their penis claiming they’ll have more sexual pleasure.
“They said they would enjoy sex more by inserting those objects. But it is risky and has health complications and eventually death,” Nenai said.
He said people must change their mindsets, and remain natural.
“Don’t try to do anything to your private part which could put you in danger.”
Nenai said they had treated 200 to 300 men with injected penis having sexual transmitted infections (STI) complications.
“The lead complications with cases of injected penis that we received here were STIs.
“The injection increased their sexual activity. All of these men injected their penis, and went on a sex-spree. Which has led to them contracting STIs quickly.”
“The most common being human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), syphilis and gonorrhea.
“The second is, most penis were unable to erect normal (importance).
“There’s also multiple untreated sores around the penis, swollen scrotum in the pubic area due to injected penis. The sores have very bad odour.”
Nenai said the penis were injected using baby oil, moringa oil and other oils, with the hope of increasing its sizes.
“Most men are between ages of 16 and 40.
“We treat them if we can, otherwise we advise them to go home and maintain personal hygiene.”
“Others were referred for further treatment.
“They said they wanted to increase penis size for greater sexual pleasure,” Nenai said.
He appealed to men to look after their health in his session of men’s sexual health during men’s health day on Friday, at the health centre.
“Injecting penis is risky. Please don’t do it if you haven’t done it,” Nenai said.
