Penis Pain and Painful Intercourse – Causes and Solutions

Dec 5th 2012 at 11:11 AM

Penis pain can be either internal or external, and it can occur in the form of a dull, throbbing ache or a sharp, burning pain. It may come on gradually, or it may happen suddenly, especially during vigorous sexual activity. One thing is certain – penis pain can be frightening and lead to anxiety and worry about whether something serious is wrong. The good news is that most types of penis pain can be treated successfully, restoring enjoyment in sex. Caring for the penis on a daily basis by cleansing it carefully, wearing non-binding, breathable clothing, and applying a penis health cream may help men to avoid some common types of penile pain and maintain a healthy member.

Some common causes of penis pain are described here. However, men who experience acute or chronic pain, painful intercourse, or pain that comes on suddenly should seek prompt medical attention.

1. Skin irritation or infection – The penis is constantly exposed to chafing, rubbing, and irritation of the skin. Masturbation, sex with a partner and even simply rubbing against clothing can lead to dry, chapped and reddened skin that is sore to the touch. In addition, the groin area is typically home to many different types of bacteria and yeast which can cause infections, leading to uncomfortable itching, burning, swelling and soreness.

2. Urinary tract infections – Urinary tract infections generally present as painful or frequent urination, urgency, and a feeling of needing to urinate even when the bladder is empty. In addition, a UTI can affect the urethral opening (the small opening at the tip of the penis). When this occurs, pain or a burning is not uncommon and can take much of the enjoyment out of sex.

3. Prostate problems – Prostate problems are common, especially in men over 50, although infections of the prostate gland (prostatitis) can also affect men who are much younger. Inflammation due to infection or enlarged prostate can cause numerous uncomfortable symptoms. In addition to pain in the rectal area, a feeling of “fullness” and frequent urination, prostate problems can cause mild to extreme pain during sexual activity, particularly during or directly after an orgasm.

4. Peyronie’s disease – This condition is diagnosed when scarring surrounding the erectile tissue causes pronounced bending or curving during an erection. Peyronie’s disease is often the result of traumatic injury to the penis, such as a penile fracture, but may develop in men who have not experienced penile trauma. Because permanent deformity can result if the condition is left untreated, men who experience bending or curving during erections or who find intercourse to be painful should be treated by a urologist.

Suggestions for penis care and prevention of injury

While it is not possible to avoid all penis pain and injury, proper care can go a long way toward preventing irritation and infections, soothing dry, sore skin, and preventing injury:

1. Clean the penis carefully every day using a gentle cleanser that is free of fragrances, dyes and other chemical additives that can irritate sensitive skin. Men who are uncircumcised should carefully pull back the foreskin and clean underneath – washing away dead skin cells and other matter can help to prevent infections from developing.

2. Eat a diet that is rich in fiber, fruits and vegetables, lean proteins and heart-healthy fats; drink plenty of water, and avoid processed foods that contain refined sugars and chemical additives. Good nutrition is essential to healthy immune function and to preventing cardiovascular disease, diabetes, obesity, and prostate issues, all of which can contribute to penis pain and loss of sensitivity or function.

3. Stick to a schedule of yearly check-ups; men in their 50s and those who are at high risk for prostate issues should include a prostate exam as part of their regular preventive health care visits.

4. Treat the penis skin with nourishing vitamins, minerals and antioxidants to maintain healthy texture and tone. A natural penis vitamin formula (most health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil) should contain ingredients such as vitamins A, C and D for smooth, supple, responsive skin that is resistant to disease and infection. In addition, natural moisturizers can help to retain the skin’s natural lubricant properties and decrease the risk of injury related to sexual activity.
