Painful Ejaculation: What Is It?
The word “pain” comes from the Latin words paulus meaning “bad.” When it comes to sexual pleasure, there are several types of pain. Some of them are mild and some severe. There are different kinds of pain which can occur during your sexual activity. They include:
1) Muscular Pain : This type of pain occurs when you contract muscles in your body during the act of penetration or ejaculation.
You may feel a burning sensation in your groin area. This kind of pain is usually caused by tight muscles around the genitals. If you have this type of pain, you will experience difficulty in reaching an erection or achieving an adequate amount of blood flow to your genital region.
2) Nausea : This type of pain occurs when you vomit due to the excessive amount of stomach acid produced during sexual stimulation.
It is similar to the feeling of nausea you might get if you eat something poisonous.
3) Vomiting : This type of pain occurs when you vomit due to the excessive amount of stomach acid produced during sexual stimulation.
You may feel like throwing up. You may even pass out from vomiting. This type of pain is very unpleasant and it often leads to passing out or fainting.
4) Blooding Out of Your Urethra : If you have a pre-existing medical condition, you may experience blooding coming out of your urethra during ejaculation.
This may be triggered due to over-ejaculation or the use of an extremely tight latex or synthetic condoms. If this happens, you should go to a doctor immediately.
5) Prostate Pain : This pain may occur in men who are at least 50 years old.
If you are an older man who is experiencing pain in your groin area, this may be a sign of Prostate Enlargement.
6) Itchiness : This type of pain is normally a mild one and it occurs when you experience an aggressive itchiness or burning in the genital region.
If this happens, you should go to a doctor to get a checkup.
7) Unusual Discharge : This type of pain is usually accompanied by an unusual discharge from the urethra or the tip of the Penis.
You should go to a doctor immediately if you suffer from this condition.
8) Toothache : Some men may experience a mild to even severe toothache after ejaculation.
Normally, you will experience pain on one or several teeth. Pain medication may cure this condition, but you should also seek medical attention right away.
9) Prostate Cancer : This is a very serious condition and it may lead to death if you do not seek medical treatment immediately.
Most doctors recommend that men over 50 get a regular prostate checkup every year.
Painful Ejaculation – Causes
What causes Painful Ejaculation? What is the reason for your pain? Is it due to excessive masturbation or over stimulation of your genitals? Or is it something else entirely?
There are many reasons why you might suffer from painful ejaculation. They include:
1) Damaged Urethra : The tube which connects your bladder to the tip of your Penis is called the Urethra.
It is possible for this tube to become damaged due to too much masturbation or over-stimulation of your genitals. If this occurs, you may experience pain or a burning sensation while urinating. You should seek medical attention right away.
2) Allergies : If you experience an itchy or burning sensation around your genital region, you may have developed an allergy to the soaps or lotions that you use to cleanse the area.
You can buy a special hypo-allergenic soap to wash the area with. Over stimulating your genitals can also cause an allergic reaction in some people. So, if the itching doesn’t stop, then try to lower the frequency of your masturbation sessions.
3) Yeast Infection : If you experience an unusual discharge from your urethra or the tip of your Penis, you may have a yeast infection.
This is also known as “Jock Itch” and it feels similar to having an itch that you can’t scratch. If you have been suffering from this condition for more than a few weeks, then consider changing your diet. Avoid things like sugar, bread and beer. Try eating more fruit and vegetables instead. You should also try to get more exercise and reduce the amount of time that you spend sitting down every day.
4) Damaged Prostate : Your prostate is a gland that is located beneath your bladder.
It produces a fluid that is similar in consistency to seminal fluid. This liquid makes up the first part of your ejaculate. If you have an enlarged prostate or if you have been experiencing problems with this gland, then this may be the cause of your pain. You should definitely see your doctor and get a full physical examination.
5) Chlamydia : This is a sexually transmitted disease that affects men as well as women.
If you are suffering from Chlamydia, then you may experience a burning sensation during urination. This can also lead to pain and inflammation in your genital region. You may have contracted this from a sexual partner who is suffering from the symptoms of a Chlamydia.
6) Vaginitis : This is an inflammation of your genital region in women.
It can be caused by an allergic reaction to soaps, underwear or feminine products. It can also be caused by exposure to a allergen such as Chemicals or latex. If you are engaging in Anal sexual activity, then consider using a different lubricant.
7) Yeast Infection : This type of infection is also known as “Jock Itch” and it causes an itchy rash in or around the genital region.
The itching is so intense that you can’t keep still. You may also have developed sores on your genitals or a white colored discharge from your urethra.
8) Prostate Cancer : Prostate cancer is a very serious condition and you need to seek medical help immediately if you are experiencing any of the following symptoms: urinary problems; pain during sexual stimulation or when passing water.
Hopefully, you can rule out some of these conditions by consulting with a doctor.
Whatever you do, don’t ignore the problem or try to treat it yourself with over-the-counter medication. If the problem is serious, then you could suffer from long-term health complications.
Also remember to always use a latex safety barrier (Condoms) during all forms of sexual activity in order to protect yourself and your partner from sexually transmitted diseases.
