Painful Penis? Here’s What Might Be Going On

Posted by John Dugan on Friday, December 21, 2018, In : Men's Health 

A painful penis is the absolute worst. It not only affects your sex life, but it can also be a constant source of annoyance or discomfort. Although it is normal to have odd pains every now and then, there are certain health conditions that can cause ongoing penile pain.

CPPS Causes Uncomfortable Penis Pain

Posted by John Dugan on Thursday, December 20, 2018, In : Men's Health 

Even the mention of penis pain is enough to get some guys feeling tense. All men know how very sensitive the penis is; that sensitivity is responsible for the glorious feelings a male experiences during orgasm, but it’s also responsible for the intense pain that the manhood sometimes suffers. Proper penis care helps to strengthen the organ, but penis pain still occurs. Getting hit in the crotch is one common source, but it’s passing pain. Something like CPPS (chronic pelvic pain syndrome)...

Wine and Penis Pain – Excuse Me?

Posted by John Dugan on Saturday, December 15, 2018, In : Men's Health 

Wine has played a big role in romantic and sexual escapades throughout the ages – just ask Dionysus, the rather randy Greek god of wine. And while there are a multitude of teetotalers who enjoy a thriving and robust sex life, wine is still strongly associated with “getting in the mood” with a sensuous partner. Which makes it all the more surprising to learn that in some cases, consumption of wine might be associated with penis pain. But how can a Chardonnay or a claret be a penis health...

It’s fiery, it’s prickly, and it’s downright unbearable – when a man feels pain during urination it’s certain to make him paranoid. Dysuria, fancy doctor-speak for painful urination is the condition that affects the bladder and its nearby parts.

Avoid Penis Rash When Using Body Paints

Posted by John Dugan on Saturday, November 10, 2018, In : Men's Health 

A rash on any part of the body is inconvenient, but a penis rash can be especially so. Not only is it often accompanied by an itchiness that can lead to a guy being caught scratching his equipment, but a visible penis rash often makes partners wary of engaging in intimate acts with a man. And, of course, a penis rash can sometimes be a signal of a greater penis health issue. However, as we explain in our article originally published on Ezinearticles.com, it can also be due to more benign caus...

Penis Pain Could Come from a Bladder Stone

Posted by John Dugan on Friday, October 26, 2018, In : Men's Health 

When the penis is in pain, most men are ready to jump into action to solve the problem, and the first the step, beyond acknowledging the pain, is figuring out what may be the cause. Numerous factors can bring about penis pain, one of which is the unwelcome presence of a bladder stone. Knowing symptoms of a bladder stone can be valuable when discussing this pain with a doctor.

Not kidney stones

Penis Pain May Signal Prostatitis

Posted by John Dugan on Friday, September 21, 2018, In : Health 

Urinating is supposed to be no big deal – just unzip, aim and shoot. But sometimes things don’t go exactly that way, such as when a guy finds that urinating is accompanied by penis pain – a burning sensation, perhaps. And sometimes there’s penis pain even when not urinating, making a guy feel even more nervous about the state of his penis health. Many things can be responsible for penis pain – including prostatitis.

Severe Penis Pain: Is it a Nerve Problem?

Posted by John Dugan on Thursday, September 13, 2018, In : Men's Health 

All those sensitive nerves in the penis are the reason that it feels so good when the penis is stroked, enveloped or otherwise made the subject of physical attention. Without those nerves, sex literally would be a whole different ballgame. But that special nerve sensitivity also means that penis pain can be heightened when it occurs. Usually penis pain is fleeting, as when the penis is accidentally struck. But there can be some penis health issues in which the pain is longer lasting or recur...

Penis Pain Due to Seminal Vesicle Stones: How Common Is It?

Posted by John Dugan on Monday, September 3, 2018, In : Men's Health 

Kidney stones most people know about, but stones can also develop in other parts of the body. Sad to report, one of the areas where they can potentially develop are in the seminal vesicles. Although such cases are (fortunately) extremely rare, it’s important for men to know about them in the event that they find their penis health impacted by their unwanted presence.

What are they?

Yow! Avoiding Penis Pain During Oral Sex

Posted by John Dugan on Tuesday, August 28, 2018, In : Men's Health 

There are some magic words that get a man hot and bothered pretty quickly, and two of the most powerful in that regard are "oral sex." Sure, guys tend to like many other kinds of sex as well, often more than oral sex. But there’s still something special about the mouth-to-penis brand of engagement that holds a special place for a man. (It also helps inspire him to keep an eye on his penis health, since no partner wants to be an unhygienic penis in their mouth.) Sometimes, however, there ca...

According to pretty much every man in the world, there is no pain like the pain possible from a sore penis.

Sore Penis Solutions: Some Common-sense Tips for Healing

Posted by John Dugan on Thursday, July 26, 2018, In : Men's Health 

It’s a no-brainer that guys need to avoid doing things that can result in a sore penis. But not every guy really uses common sense the way that he should - and that is especially true where the penis is involved. Often common sense tells men to behave one way for the sake of penis health or to respect propriety or simply to avoid making a fool of oneself - but the penis tells them something else. And too often the penis wins. Nevertheless, following are a few common sense strategies to fol...

Big Penis Problems: Too Much of a Good Thing?

Posted by John Dugan on Thursday, June 28, 2018, In : Men's Health 

When talking about penis size problems, most people assume that the issue is that the penis in question is on the small side. As a matter of fact, most men would refuse to believe that someone with a big penis size could actually have a problem. But the truth is that, while there can be some advantages to having a big penis, there can also be potential disadvantages. When by "big" we mean "long," one potential issue can be depth of penetration. When there’s an overflow of length, it can in...

Avoiding Penis Pain While Using a Pump

Posted by John Dugan on Thursday, June 28, 2018, In : Men's Health 

One of the benefits of a society which is more open concerning sexual issues is the greater availability of items, both recreational and medical, for use on the penis. A penis pump is one such device which has a definite medical use (for helping men with erectile issues achieve firmness) and a recreational use (for allowing men to "pump up" their penis for fun). Of course, using a penis pump for pure recreational purposes does come with some risks; used improperly, it can lead to penis injur...

Pain During Sex: How to Help When Your Partner Has Endometriosis

Posted by John Dugan on Wednesday, June 27, 2018, In : Men's Health 

Most often when a guy focuses on penis problems, he’s looking at ways to treat a persistent penis odor or to "fix" a reluctant erection or to find out what that unhealthy looking growth really is. But sometimes penis problems can involve one’s female partner(s) instead. For example, it’s a problem for a guy’s penis if his partner has pain during sex due to endometriosis.

Penis Pain and Swelling: Could it be Epididymitis?

Posted by John Dugan on Tuesday, June 26, 2018, In : Men's Health 

Although men are understandably proud of their penis and scrotum, many men are not familiar with the inner workings of these body parts, despite the impact that such inner workings can have on their health. For example, even men who have heard of epididymitis may not be sure of exactly what it is or how it might affect their private parts, causing penis pain and other unpleasant symptoms.

Many men who have had them claim they produce the most intense pain they’ve ever experienced - and sometimes that translates to serious penis pain. Yes, kidney stones may not form in the penis, but they definitely can have an impact on penis health.

In a lot of cases, paying attention to basic penis care can help to prevent issues emerging which can result in penis pain (always a desirable goal). Still, even attentive men still can make mistakes, especially when in the throes of passion (or simply when thinking with one’s penis instead of one’s brain), and situations may arise which involve considerable pain. One of these is infection of the penis by something called mycoplasma.

According to some experts, about 1.2 million people around the world enjoy scuba diving - and about two-thirds of them are men.

Penis Pain and Neurological Disorders: Understanding Dyaesthesia

Posted by John Dugan on Saturday, May 19, 2018, In : Men's Health 

A little penis pain every now and then is inevitable, but in most cases, it’s something that passes quickly. A guy gets hit in the crotch, for example, and the pain is intense but usually of relatively short duration. But occasionally, more lasting pain occurs, creating a cause for concern.

Penis Pain from Reiter’s Syndrome

Posted by John Dugan on Wednesday, May 9, 2018, In : Men's Health 

Proper penis care can be tricky sometimes, especially when the penis can be affected by seemingly unrelated problems. For example, if a man has penis pain, it’s not unreasonable to expect the cause to be something obvious, like a kick to the penis or a sexually-transmitted infection. But sometimes discovering the penis pain cause can be circuitous. A case in point is when that penis pain is linked to a condition known as Reiter’s syndrome.

Penis Pain from Nocturnal Erections

Aside from people with fetishes in this area, no one really enjoys feelings of pain, and men especially tend to avoid anything that causes penis pain.
