Question: Pain during ejaculation
|MCRAIKE37 - Wed Mar 28, 2007 12:23 pm||
I am 29 year old and male. I have pain in the right side of my scrotum that extends into my right extreme upper thigh during ejaculation. I have been screened for prostate problems and have had a colonoscopy in the past year with normal results. I have no pain other than during ejaculation. This has been going on for about 9 months and is present about 90% of the time during ejaculation. Meaning occaisionally it is not present during ejaculation. Could this be some kind of torsion or seminal blockage? It is a moderate pain, not excruciating nor mild.

It is possible that you may have a tortuous vas deferens (the tube that carries the semen) that is causing pain with ejaculation but I am not aware that this actually occurs.
If you also have pain on urination this would indicate inflammation of the urethra beyond where the vas deferens connects to the urethra.
Perhaps you have an inflamed muscle. Ejaculation causes contraction of multiple muscles. If one was "pulled" it could cause pain similar to straining a muscle in another part of the body.
I really cannot come up with a great reason for this. I would recommend you see a urologist to help diagnose your problem and determine a treatment course.
