Burning Sensation After Ejaculating

Ever wondered why you experience a burning sensation or slight pain after ejaculation? Well, it is not quite uncommon. The pain can be felt because of some problem with a part of the body that facilitates ejaculation. The organs that contribute to a slight pain or a burning feeling post-ejaculation include the testicles, the prostate, the vas deferens, the ejaculatory duct, the urethra, and the penile.  

Painful ejaculation can be a symptom of some other problem, such as prostate enlargement, prostatitis, UTIs, etc. The severity and intensity of the pain and burning sensation might differ from one individual to another. Fortunately, this condition is highly treatable. You can consult a urologist and get it timely treated.   

Symptoms of painful ejaculation  

According to the Medical News Today website, some apparent indications of this are as follows:

  • Pain or burning sensation felt immediately after ejaculating.
  • Pain that arises right before or after ejaculating.
  • Pain felt in or around the penile, bladder (pelvic region), or rectum.
  • Pain felt while passing the urine, especially after ejaculating.

The intensity of the pain may vary from individual to individual. The duration of the pain can range from a few minutes or up to 24 hours.

Causes of burning sensation during ejaculation

There can be several factors that can lead to pain during ejaculation. To get the condition treated, one must get it timely treated. The healthcare provider will suggest some diagnostic evaluation tests to identify the root cause of the pain or burning sensation. With reference to the Allo Health website, the potential factors that can cause these symptoms are given below:  

Prostate disorders

Disorders related to the prostate gland like prostatitis and benign prostate hyperplasia (BPH) or enlarged prostate can be strong reasons behind such symptoms. A condition like prostatitis is a result of some nerve damage due to chronic illness or urinary tract infection (UTI). During prostatitis, the prostate may develop swelling and inflammation, which give rise to pain while ejaculating. Besides, some might develop painful ejaculation after getting some prostate-related treatment or surgery, for example, surgery for prostate cancer.

Seminal vesicle disorders

Also termed as seminal Vesiculitis. Seminal vesicles are glands that aid the mixing of sperm cells with other fluids to form semen. Any disorders related to these organs can give rise to painful ejaculation. Any infection, cysts, tumors, stone formation, etc. can affect the functioning of these glands.  

Urinary tract infections (UTIs)

Any infections and diseases affecting the urinary tract can cause irritation and inflammation in the urethra. The infectious bacteria can enter inside the urethra tube and make the ejaculation painful. UTIs are linked to a burning sensation and painful ejaculation.

Sexually transmitted infections (STIs)

Chlamydia or gonorrhea, trichomoniasis, etc. are infections that lead to irritation and inflammation in the urethra, which can make ejaculation difficult.


Epididymis is a coiled tube that is located at the back of the testicle. A disorder related to this tube, called Epididymitis causes swelling and inflammation. It can be the result of some bacterial infection or sexually transmitted infection (STI). 

Side effects of medications

Side effects of some medications can contribute to discomfort and burning sensation during or after ejaculation. Antidepressants are a class of medications that may contribute to painful ejaculation. Apart from these symptoms, such medications can also give rise to erectile dysfunction (ED) or impotence problems in males.

Psychological distress

Factors such as depression, anxiety, stress, trauma, etc. can cause sexual discomfort and pain. The sexual desire gets negatively impacted. As a result, the discomfort can contribute to a burning sensation during ejaculation.

Cancer treatment

For the treatment of cancer in the pelvic region, radiation therapy is used. This therapy can treat different types of cancers. Exposure of the pelvic region to such powerful radiations causes discomfort, irritation, and inflammation in the pelvic region. This may result as the therapy can disturb the function of other organs by affecting their tissues, thereby leading to pain during propelling the of semen from the penile orifice.

Diagnosis and treatment

The diagnostic evaluation tests will be suggested by your healthcare provider. They will ask you several questions linked to medical history, chronic health conditions, surgeries, medications, etc. Your physical examination will be conducted by manually examining your pelvic region. The doctor will check for the signs of infection and abnormalities. They will also suggest some tests like urine tests, blood sample tests, and imaging tests to find the exact cause of the burning sensation experienced during ejaculation.

Based on the type of problem that is contributing to the burning pain, the doctor will prescribe an appropriate treatment, which might include antibiotics, surgery, psychotherapy, etc.
