User avatar Perhaps you are experiencing pain due to increased volume. Semen is produced essentially in a replacement fashion. If a lot of volume is being expressed, large volumes will be made.

It may be that when you have increased periods of time between ejaculation you are producing larger volumes of semen that causes some pain during ejaculation.

If this is the cause, the pain should resolve after several days of decreased ejaculation since the body will respond by decreasing semen production.

If your pain continues I would recommend you consider seeing a urologist.

Best wishes.
