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 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.
