Question: Hemorrhoids and ejaculation


 Quasar - Thu Apr 30, 2009 9:08 pm

Can ejaculation aggravate hemorrhoids?

Just a week ago I had a DRE.
And shortly after I started noticing severe anal pain.
I think the doctor could have possibly given me a hemorroid.
The pain started lessoning... But whenever I ejaculate, it comes back.

User avatar Hello --

It's possible but unlikely an internal hemorrhoid could cause some pain upon ejaculation. More likely either a hemorrhoid or something else was disturbed during the DRE. I would most definitely bring this to the attention of the doctor who did the exam, since even though the exam would not cause a hemorrhoid, something is not right.

Hope this is helpful. Good luck to you.
