Painful Penis During Sex & What it Could Mean

Nov 19th 2012 at 10:26 AM

Infection, nerve pain and inflammation of the penis and/or prostate can lead to intense discomfort during sex. Vitamins, minerals, antibiotics and a regular self-care routine go a long way toward improving symptoms and speeding recovery. However if problems persist, it is important to consult a healthcare provider for a medical diagnosis.

Symptoms

Pain during sexual intercourse can make the sexual act unbearable for many men. While it is normal function for the penis to become hypersensitive directly after orgasm, excessive pain and discomfort can make the penis so sore it cannot bear to be touched. However in less common cases men can experience pain in the penis during the sexual act or during an erection. Symptoms can differ greatly, depending on what is causing the pain. Sharp, shooting, burning or tingling pain should be checked out by a doctor or urologist immediately, in order to rule out infection, spinal problems or chronic degenerative illnesses.

Causes

There are many possible causes for a painful penis during sexual intercourse. If the penis has changed shape in any way or has formed bulges it may be the development of scar tissue inside the penis, a condition known as Peyronie's disease. When the foreskin is too tight and painful to retract it is known as phimosis, a problem that can either begin at birth or occur as a result of scarring of the foreskin. Inflammation and infection of the penis or prostate gland are other possibilities. Be on the lookout for warning signs, such as redness, heat, burning, itching, discharge, changes in urine color and smell, or skin problems.

When tingling, burning, shooting pains, or numbness in the penis are experienced the cause of pain during sex may stem from the nerves. According to the Mayo Clinic, the pudendal nerve, which runs from the spine through the buttocks, can cause pain in the buttocks, anus and penis when it is pinched or damaged.

Men with diabetes may also experience gradual nerve damage as part of their condition, beginning as tingling and later progressing to pain, burning, or numbness in hands, feet and genitals.

Treatment

Treatment ultimately depends on what is causing the pain. Infection and inflammation of the penis and/or prostate can be handled easily in most cases with antibiotics, anti-inflammatory medication and immune enhancers such as vitamin C and Echinacea extract.

Nerve problems are often treated with a range of therapies including anti-inflammatory medications, pain killers, and self-management strategies to use at home. If the nerves have been damaged from diabetes, the most important strategy is to manage the disease effectively through dietary changes, insulin therapy and supplements to support insulin sensitivity.

Some natural products may support nerve health and reduce pain naturally. Botanicals such as California Poppy, Chamomile, Passionflower and Skullcap may help to reduce pain signaling in the nerves. Studies show Alpha lipoic acid, Lion's Mane Mushroom and St John's Wort may help to reduce nerve inflammation and promote the regeneration of damaged nerves.

Health Crèmes

Penis health crèmes are natural products that can help to treat inflammation, pain, and nerve damage on the penis. Containing natural vitamins, antioxidants and oils that benefit tissue integrity and immune health, health crèmes can be applied to speed the recovery of skin cells and possibly calm hypersensitive tissues. Specialist formulas (most professionals recommend Man1Man Oil) contain vitamin C as a natural immune support, vitamin E to reduce scarring of tissues, alpha lipoic acid for penis nerve health and shea butter for anti-inflammatory and wound healing properties.
