In addition to premature ejaculation, pain during the act of ejaculation is a very common phenomenon that affects and torments many sexually active men. Often patients are embarrassed to consult a doctor with sexual problems, and come to a specialist much later than women. But a false shame in such matters is an unreasonable thing and the sooner you seek help, the sooner the problem will be solved.
Causes of Painful Ejaculation
Many patients complain not only of painful ejaculation, , but also pain during urination; some men say that the pain can last a couple of hours after the act. In the vast majority of cases, the cause of pain is an abrupt reduction in the prostate during ejaculation. Painful ejaculation can also be a consequence of diseases such as:
- chronic prostatitis;
- inflammation of the prostate and urethra;
- narrowing of the urethra.
Painful ejaculation or orgasm?
Very often, patients get confused in these concepts. On the one hand, painful ejaculation as a result of infection or soreness, and on the other, the result of organic lesions of the pelvic area and spine. The patient cannot discern the root cause, which is why medical advice is unavoidable. Admission of an andrologist is the first step in identifying painful ejaculation. The leading symptom is acute pain immediately before ejaculation, cramps. Cramps can disappear quickly, but in some cases can last several hours.
Diagnosis of painful ejaculation
During a frank and direct conversation with a specialist, it is important to outline the initial clinical picture. After consultation, bacteriological tests of urine and sperm are prescribed. Perhaps, to diagnose the cause of painful ejaculation, the doctor will advise ultrasound of the prostate gland.
Treatment of painful ejaculation
After identifying the trigger factor - the culprit of painful ejaculation, the doctor prescribes the necessary pharmaceuticals to eliminate the foci of infection and inflammation, as well as painkillers (special targeted drugs) and sedatives.
Regular sexual activity is important for a man; it is advisable to avoid long periods of «stagnation». The patient should adhere to a balanced diet, limit excessive consumption of chocolate, coffee, alcoholic beverages, soda. The body mass must be controlled, because excess fat can worsen the clinical picture: the fat layer compresses the urinary tract, therefore, provokes pain during urination and sexual intercourse.
