Q: My penis hurts after ejacualting multiple times

After multiple times of ejaculation - nearly 8 times one day - the area just below the head of my penis hurts.   I have been drinking lots of water thinking i was simply dehydrated.  It has been a week now and it feels better but still irritated?  Also a slight burinng sensation during urination mainly hurts when ejaculating.

Hello Help,

Anytime there is pain in the penis, you need to see a doctor to make sure there isn't something seriously wrong. Particularly when urinating. Online sites are great resources for information to be able to ask all the right questions when it's time to see your doctor, but they can not take the place of your doctor's sound medical advice.


You can read more about penis pain here in the symptoms database. Common causes of pain in the penis can be any of the following:



Common Causes

  • Injury (such as that due to too much manipulation)
  • Bites, either human or insect
  • Pimples
  • Genital herpes
  • Inflammation of the prostate gland (prostatitis)
  • Syphilis
  • Nonspecific urethritis caused by chlamydia or gonorrhea
  • Infection under the foreskin of uncircumcised men (balanitis)
  • Reiter syndrome
  • Priapism (persistent erection that does not go away)
  • Peyronie's disease
  • Cancer of the penis
  • Infected penile prosthesis
  • Sickle cell anemia

I hope this helps. Please take care and stay in touch! Let us know how you are doing!
