Hi i am a 25 year old male. I have two young kids and with the love of my life. Iam not sure if anybody in this community will be able to help me?.... My question or concern is that about three days ago i noticed that when i urinated to basically hurt to go and i could feel it a bit in my scrotum.Sometimes even my erection hurts a bit or wearing tight boxers...The first thing i thought was UTI but i have no other symptoms. I dont have to urinate alot or when i do have to, i am able to go.. so in other words ive been urniating just as many times as i would normally...i dont have any discharge or funny smell. i dont see any signs of swollen or red area around the top of my penis. Its basically all inside i think. I ve been with my wife for 9 years, i would almost have to rule out STDs and we havent been sexually active in awhile due to personal reasons. BUT because of non sexual activity i have been looking at porn online and masterbating (masturbating) more than normal. Its not 2-3 times a day or every single day but more than my normal... i dont use any luberication because i like the feel of all natural. And when i was a teenager i would use different objects for pleasure.. So in my only guess is from when i was a teenager untill now i must have worn down the inside and possibly the outside of my penis.My pain just feels like its raw basically like ive had wild sex for like 3 hours ..There is always the debate of is masterbating (masturbating) healthy and i think it is, but it moderation... If anybody could help me out, i would really be happy about it, cause i am worried and hoping this will just pass in a few weeks..
Painful urination is usually a sign of some type of infection.
Is it actually truly painful or does it just sting a little bit? Because you can get the stinging sensation if theres a little *** left in the urethra and you pee.
You may have rubbed yourself a little raw during masturbation, especially if you go without lubricant, but a few days of abstaining would probably clear that up.
I can guarantee you that at age 25 you haven't worn down the inside of your penis. It's not a piece of wood that can be eroded. Certainly not this quickly. Seriously, if masturbation cuased this to happen then millions of guys would be walking around with a sack of ice on their crotch.
If you're getting a true painful, burning sensation then its more than likely an infection. A UTI is not out of the question either, as you had suggested. Drink some cranberry juice or take some cranberry supplements for a few weeks and stop masturbating for a while and see if everything doesn't get back to normal.
If you're seriously getting a painful feeling, or if it burns when you urinate, or if you develop any sort of rash, bump, etc.. any other signs or symptoms of infection then I would suggest having your doctor take a look. It might not be a bad idea to get it checked out anyway just to be sure.
For the record: Masturbation doesn't cause any health problems. There is such a thing as masturbating too much and being addicted to masturbation, but the act of masturbating in and of itself does not cause any problems. Studies have been done ad nauseum on this subject. If masturbation caused any sort of health problem and with any regularity then every guy on the planet would have it. Recent studies have actually proposed a link between the frequency of ejaculation and prostate health.
Ok thanks for taking the time to respond to me. If its not from masterbating (masturbating) then what the hell is it from then???
Yes it stings when i pee, i dont know how to discribe it.. Like if you have a papercut or any cut and you clean it out with peroxide or get salt in the wound or like sanpaper being rubbed up and down my penis..that kind of stinging.
Ya maybe your right , maybe i havent worn down the inside of my penis. But i bet you havent used a paint roller tube or the toilet paper roll to masterbate with?? i used to when i was a teenager and sometimes i made the outside of penis bleed..Thats how intense i used to be..I think that every guy has their own tollerance or ways that get them aroused, for me i liked it rough,that was the only way to make me ejaculate.. Now it take like 10mins at max, thats how much i use to masterbate..
i drink a 2L bottle of cranberry juice and water over two days and only noticed a little change..
i have no bumps or rashes, just varicocle veins on my left testicle. Apparently thats a common thing like getting one our leg. maybe that has something to do with it?..
i have to disagree with this comment:
"If masturbation caused any sort of health problem and with any regularity then every guy on the planet would have it.
Like i said before everybodys body and especially penis is different. Some guys could probably masterbate or have sex all the time without any irritation, where some guys would find it very irritating. I cant have sex 3 or 4 times a week. because my penis hurts to much afterwards. feels like someone took sand paper up and down my penis..
Infection?? infection from what?? i am very clean down there and dont use any harsh soaps, i have one partner, our house is very clean.
Well I meant if masturbation caused any sort of SERIOUS health problem. Obviously it's a part of the body with skin and veins and such and sure there's a multitude of things you can do to it. I meant the actual act of masturbating doesn't cause a disease. It may cause a rash or irritation but there's a large misconception out there on the internet, mostly among young males, that masturbating can cause prostate cancer or aids, or somehow break your penis, etc... My point was that if masturbating somehow infected your penis the way you're describing then we, as guys, would certainly know about it because we'd all have gotten it at some point or another.
It's a part of the body and just as likely to be injured as any other but the simple act of rubbing your penis does not cause a disease is what I meant.
You can get an infection down there without really doing anything risky. It's possible that you irritated it to the point of creating an open wound on the shaft or head (I've done that). When that happens it can get infected just like a cut on your hand or foot could. It's not necesserily sexually transmitted or anything like that. Simply brushing an open wound against a dirty, bacteria ridden surface like a public toilet (or even your own toilet or shower wall) might be enough to infect you. It doesn't take much to get bacteria in an open wound. You just have to touch it really.
One more thing: A papercut or salt in the wound kinda pain sounds.... pretty painful. Sounds like more than just irritation.
The more I think about it the more it sounds like an infection of some kind but again, I'm not a doctor so I can't really say anything for sure, just give you my own opinon based on what I've had before. I've rubbed my penis raw before and I've had that pain. It feels more like a burn than a sting and I never had the pain while urinating thing except for when I contracted a UTI.
I can tell you for sure that once an infection gets into the penis it can really take off in a hurry so you might want to get this checked out soon. I mean, I think it's safe to say you haven't contracted some kind of rare, incurable penis disease so worst-case scenario you picked up something that is probably treatable and the doctor can help you. Best-case scenario it's nothiing to worry about and you have your peace of mind.
i didnt mean to sound like you dont know anything or that i am pissed off at you one way or another. Iam just frustrated. it feels uncomfortable, its annoying and i dont want to think for a minute that i have something more than just an infection. Man i havent been to a doctor in like five years. Last time was actually because i thought i had a UTI because of frequent peeing so i pissed in a cup but never did end up having anything..i hate doctors, i will try to avoid them at all costs..But if this keeps up, i am going to have to go to the docs kicking and screaming like a little girl!!.......
Apart from UTI, it could also be due to Bladder Stone. Here is link for you to refer :
In any case, consulting a Urologist is the best option.
i checked the symptoms of bladder stone and i only have a few of the symptoms. doesnt mean i dont have it but doesnt seem like it to me.. Actually when i woke up this morning,it didnt seem to burn that much FINALLY!! maybe it really was an UTI?? ive been drinking water like crazy maybe i just peed it all out??
