I have severe burning and pain from my perineum. What could cause this and what helps to fix the problem?

Whenever I ejaculate I feel discomfort in perineum and also at surgical side of hernia (surgery was done in 2008). Are these two problems connected?

Possibly related: The spermatic cord travels through the inguinal canal, where inguinal hernias occur. When a male ejaculates, the spermatic cord shortens.

It may improve over time, stay the same or worsen. See your surgeon for advice. ...Read more

Mirena (levonorgestrel) could help as well as Danazol suppositories. But you need to be evaluated by a pelvic pain specialist. ...Read more
