Ejaculation (Painful)

What is painful ejaculation?

Painful ejaculation, or odynorgasmia, is a physical syndrome described by pain or burning sensation of the urethra or perineum during or following ejaculation. Some men may only experience pain after having sex with a partner, but not when they masturbate.

There are many causes that can create painful ejactulation and is usualy due to a medical condition such as infections associated with urethritis, prostatitis, or epididymitis. Sometimes, doctors are unable to find a medical cause.

Symptoms may include the following:

• Pain during or immediately following ejaculation
• Pain in or around the penis, bladder, or rectum
• Pain that begins shortly before or after ejaculation
• Pain during urination, especially immediately after ejaculating

The pain may last only a few minutes or for up to 24 hours following ejaculation. It can be mild or very intense.
