Prostatitis is swelling or infection of the prostate gland. It often hurts. The prostate gland sits just below a man's bladder and makes part of the fluid for semen. In young men, the prostate is about the size of a walnut.
Painful ejaculation, also known as dysorgasmia or orgasmalgia, can range from mild discomfort to severe pain during or after ejaculation. The pain can involve the penis, scrotum, and perineal or perianal area. Prostatitis is the term for inflammation or infection of the prostate gland. Other symptoms include lower abdominal pain and difficulty getting an erection.
This painful experience can have multiple sources of origin. The following suggestions are simply possibilities we believe may be the cause of this rectal pain and are not meant in any way to be an official medical diagnosis. During the excitement phase of the sexual response cycle , the penis becomes erect due to an increase in blood flow to the genital area this process of engorgement is called vasocongestion. When the penis is fully erect but does not progress through the phases of sexual response stopping sexual relations prior to emission and ejaculation , the increase blood supply is still present and can lead to pain in the genital area.
