Question: Penis/Abdomen Pain after Ejaculating

 dmp6456 - Fri Feb 29, 2008 3:09 pm

My boyfriend has a sharp pain, sometimes in his abdomen, but mostly in his penis after ejaculating. He says it feels like a nail being driven through from tip to bottom. He also says there is pain when he urinates afterward. It usually does not last too long, but it varies. He did not complain of this when we started seeing each other 8 months ago, but for the last 4 or 5 months it has been a problem. He says that his father suffered from the same thing, and that when he goes back to his country he can get either pills to cure it or an operation. At other times he says he has no idea what the problem is. Can you help at all?

User avatar Hello Dmp6456,

I'm not exactly certain what this would be. If STD's are a possibility I would strongly recommend he be fully tested for them to make sure this isn't a urethritis or other inflammation due to an infection. One other possibility would be a hernia that may be causing some pain. This would be a little atypical for a hernia presentation but possible.

I would suggest he see a urologist to have this further evaluated.

Best wishes.
