Can straining while constipated affect my penis?

A week ago I was constipated and strained until blood came out of my anus. It was a bright red blood that stopped after I wiped several times. I'm currently on fiber supplement and no longer constipated but my penis feels weak and to be honest I haven't tried getting an erection yet as I'm still ina bit of pains down in my anus. However , at night I would get slightly hard, whereas I used to be rock hard. Is there any possibility of me damaging any nerve during the straining? I am 23 years old

Some medicines has as side effect the possibility of turning erections into something really difficult to get, so regarding the medical problems you were having, did your doctor/pharmacist tell you to take any medicines whose side effect included that ?
No she did not mention. I'm currently on fiber supplements, pain medication and metronidazole. Il be sure to ask on my next appointment is on Monday . Also I noticed after urinating, I leak a drop or two when I sit down, bend over , or put any pressure on my stomach. I'm hoping this is just a side effect as well
