What Type of Prostatitis Causes Pain During Ejaculation?

Date:2023-12-13 click:0

In general perception, prostatitis is often associated with older age. However, this condition primarily occurs in middle-aged and young men. This is related to the characteristics of the prostate itself and male lifestyle habits.


In everyday life, various factors can easily affect the prostate, leading to ductal blockage and prostate congestion. For example, frequent sexual activity, wearing tight jeans, prolonged sitting, and driving can all contribute to the onset of this disease.

Severe prostatitis can lead to painful ejaculation.

Firstly, anatomically, the ejaculatory duct originates from the seminal vesicle, passes through the prostate, and then opens into the urethra at the verumontanum in the median lobe of the prostate. Therefore, when the prostate experiences severe inflammation and swelling, it may compress the ejaculatory duct, leading to its obstruction. This causes significant resistance when semen is ejaculated, eventually leading to pain during ejaculation.

Another scenario could be that the inflammation of the prostate is severe enough to affect the lumen of the ejaculatory duct, causing varying degrees of inflammation in the smooth muscle and epithelial layers of the duct. There may not be noticeable pain when not ejaculating, but during ejaculation, the contraction of the smooth muscle layer and the stimulation of inflammatory factors in the area can release pain-inducing factors, leading to painful ejaculation.

Prostatitis is a common disease in andrology, and in recent years, there has been a trend towards younger patients. It's important to know that while the prostate is an accessory gland of the male reproductive system, prostatitis is not a sexually transmitted disease but a very common inflammatory condition of the male reproductive system.

In addition to ejaculatory pain, patients with prostatitis may also experience discomfort or dull pain in areas such as the perineum, anus, posterior urethra, pubic area, groin, lower back, testicles, and penis. Most patients also exhibit urinary symptoms like frequent urination, urgency, painful urination, incomplete emptying, and increased nocturia.

Therefore, timely treatment of prostatitis is crucial. It is well-known that traditional Chinese medicines generally have far fewer side effects than Western medicines. While Western medicine can be highly effective in treating prostatitis, its side effects can also be significant. In other words, the adverse effects it has on the body can be substantial. 

Thus, for those seeking both effective treatment and to ensure overall health, trying traditional Chinese medicine could be beneficial. For example, Wuhan Dr.Lee’s TCM Clinic offers Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill, which is not only effective in treating symptoms but also in addressing the root cause of the condition.

What is the best medication for prostatitis? The answer is the one that best suits one's body and condition. Whether it's prostatitis or any other disease, patients must be cautious in their choice of medication, especially when selecting Western medicines that might cause unavoidable harm to the body.

The pathology and etiology of prostatitis are complex, with many factors contributing to repeated inflammation and congestion of the prostate, such as excessive fatigue, smoking, and alcohol consumption. Therefore, inconsistent treatment can lead to ineffective outcomes, and neglecting preventive healthcare post-recovery can result in relapse. 

Additionally, it's important not to stop treatment just because symptoms have improved, or to have intermittent, inconsistent treatment. This is because a patient's subjective feeling of recovery may not align with objective medical assessments.

The disease can relapse under certain conditions, making prostatitis seem recurrent and difficult to cure completely. Therefore, patients should continue and consolidate treatment after seeing positive results, to capitalize on the progress made fully and not stop treatment prematurely.
