What I am about to discuss is a bit embarrassing to say the least which is the reason why I choose this anonymity of this site. For the past three days I have been experiencing excrutiating pain at the tip of my penis during urination which has me more than a bit scared. Just to give you a let you know I am sure that this is not due to a STD as the only sex that I have had in the past three weeks was all protected with a condom.
The pain began after I engaged in a heavy session of PE (Penis Enlargement) techniques in which I would stop the blood flow into my penis. I always did things in moderation so I never have hurt myself, however this last time I decided to pushed the time a bit longer.... big mistake. I started feeling pain about 3-4 hours afterwards and since then I have been having the pain when I urinate. I don't have the pain during the day just when I urinate. I have had similar pains before in the past but much less intense and usually have gone after a day. This however has been three days and doesn't appear to be getting less in pain, which is why I am freaked out!!! I don't know what a doctor could even do at this point? Am I plagued by this pain now? I am worried about getting UTIs or even worse developing problems with prostate or my bladder?!!?!?!? Please advise on what I should do?
Excluding an infection should be done, despite the lack of risk factors. Obtaining a urethral swab and urine test should be done.
If negative, imaging the penis can be considered to evaluate blood flow. I would also see a urologist to discuss a cystoscopy. The latter test can evaluate for urethral strictures or polyps.
These options can be discussed with your personal physician, or in conjunction with a urologist.
