Doctor insights on:
Intermittent Penis Pain
Check for infection: I would advise an evaluation by either pcp or urologist. This could be an std or prostatis (which doesn't have to be sexually transmitted) this is usually easily treated with antibiotic. There are other causes as well, but be evaluated. Prostatis can cause period pain on urination or orgasm.
Yes: A physician can help to determine the cause of the pain, which is necessary to decide how to treat it.See 1 more doctor answer

Penis hurts: There are a great number of possibilites. Exactly where on the penis is the pain and have you had this for several weeks or months? Is there any swelling or bleeding. Any discharge from the penis? Did you injury yourself and harm your penis. Does urination increase pain? How old are you?
Prostatitis likely: Your symptom fits the profile of prostatitis. If the prostate swells, it triggers pain. Such pain can involve the tip of the penis, groins, testicles, low back and perineum. Urgency/frequency of urination and a variable stream may also occur. You may notice worsening erections or a discharge from the penis with bowel movements. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, see a urologist.
Pain inside penis: Given your age I would begin asking several questions including sexual history, any history of trauma or vigorous masturbation. This could be something as simple as a bruise or blood clot in the shaft of the penis to an infection. Your symptoms warrant a vist to a health care provider who is comfortable and non-judgmental and with an expertise in men's health.
Prostatitis?: Lots of options, but in the absence of any trauma or obvious change to the penis itself, an inflamed prostate can cause you to have pain in your penis. It;s called referred pain. If your doctor examines your prostate and that exam causes the pain to occur, then that is the most likely cause. Time to call your doctor!
Penis pain: What you want is entirely up to you. If you are asking whether penis pain can reduce your interest in sex, the answer is yes. Sexual activity would be expected to make the pain worse (in most cases depending on the cause), and most men wouldn't want that. Sex is supposed to be pleasurable, not painful, so it makes complete sense not to want it in this situation.
I am experiencing penis pain. I have a connecting piece of skin between the head and shaft of my penis and it is red and hurts.
More info needed: That's your penile frenulum. Not enough info here to guess at the cause. If blister (s) or sores in the area, herpes is likely. Maybe it just got stretched too far, e.g. by masturbation or sex. If you are uncircumcised and there is also redness irritation elsewhere under the foreskin, maybe nonspecific balanitis (not serious). See a doctor ASAP if blisters/sores; or in a few days if it continues.See 1 more doctor answer
