Prostate hurts after ejaculation? Has been hurting for 2 days. Why? Should get checked? Or normal? Lifestyle change?

Should get checked: It is not normal. First, by seeing a doctor you could confirm that where you are experiencing the pain does suggest that the prostate is the likely problem. Ejaculation shouldn't cause prostatitis, but if the pain IS coming from your prostate, then inflammation or infection are probable causes. Your doctor can culture prostate secretions leading to an effective antibiotic treatment. Good wishes:) ...Read more

Why does prostate hurt after ejaculation? Dull constant pain and hurts more when tightens. Lifestyle change? Normal? Help? Why?

Prostatitis: Sounds like prostatitis, which is inflammation of the prostate. This can be caused by infection, though patients who sit for long, continuous periods of time may also develop symptoms. Best to see a urologist, who can do a urinalysis to ensure no infection is present. A digital exam of the prostate with prostate massage can also be done to look for infection. NSAIDS/sitz baths can be helpful ...Read more

Does a prostate exam hurt? I’m in my 40s, so I think my doctor might want to do a prostate exam at my next checkup. I’m afraid it’s going to hurt. Is there any way I can make it hurt less?

No: Having had many, I would have to say they are not comfortable, but they don't really hurt, unless the prostate is infected. I can't think of any way to make it "hurt less" but I think if you have one you'll be surprised that it isn't that bad. ...Read more

Got a prostate exam by primary doc (for frequent urination), he asked while doing it if it hurt, I did have a dull pain, he said he doesn't think I have prostate issue. How accurate is his analysis?

Got a prostate exam by primary doc (for frequent urination), he asked while doing it if it hurt, I did have a dull pain, he said he doesn't think I have prostate issue. How accurate is his analysis?

Rectal exams: Massage of the prostate by a finger in the anus is never comfortable and often creates significant discomfort. This may be interpreted as pain by the person being examined, but may not necessarily represent disease. The experienced examiner can usually tell what is meaningful and what is a normal reaction to the insult. Without knowing your pcp I cannot really comment on how accurate they are. ...Read more

Why would my testies hurt so bad that I can't walk when I have sex or even get aroused? They hurt when I have sex and /or get aroused, and cause "e.D.". The pain raps around my entire right side hip. It feels as if it is near my prostate area or deep in

From: From your description, it sounds like you had a traditional appendectomy. If you have sex too early after surgery, you could put strain on your wound and the surrounding abdominal muscles. If your appendix developed an absess or ruptured, this could delay your healing time. The surgeon should have given you post-operative instructions such as: don't lift more than 10 to 15 pounds for four to six weeks after surgery. The instructions most likely addressed when you could return to sexual activity. If you were having sex sooner than two weeks after a standard appendectomy especially if it is causing pain, it is most likely too soon. It sexual activity is causing you this much pain, you are not ready for this activity. Please contact your surgeon to get more specific advice because he/ she knows what they discovered inside your abdomen and can also examine you if there is concern about a complication. ...Read more
