Post-coital pain

After intercourse—more specifically, after ejaculation—I experience a sharp, almost stabbing pain just below the head on the underside of my penis, in the region that I guess is the former inner foreskin layer. It's most often, but not always, concentrated in the urethral area.

The first experience of the pain occurred roughly a year ago, at which time it occurred only occasionally and would last for a very brief period of time (a minute or less). Of late, however, the pain has become much more consistent and can linger (in varying degrees of severity) for hours.

I'm not on any pain medications, nor do I have any known allergies. There haven't been any associated urinary symptoms (discharge, pain during urination, etc.).

Any ideas?

Hi,

This has been a common complaint among male patients but in most cases the tests would not show anything significant.This may not be something to worry about.

Continue to observe your symptoms.If this increases in severity or if this persists then you may seek consult with a urologist. At this point,an initial  urinalysis and urethral swab culture may be able to rule out an underlying infection.You may discuss this with your family physician.
