At the point of ejaculation, I often experience a pain

Resolved Question:

At the point of ejaculation, I often experience a pain emanating from what appears the area around the top of my right leg/pelvis. I have asked my GP about this. He said that he had never previously encountered such a condition. I am a 63yo Type II diabetic.

Hello I'm Dr Chip

Actually I've encountered this many times in my patients

It's obviously a radiating pain from an inflamed prostate and you may actually have a prostate infection

Were I your doctor I would perform a digital prostate exam after a urinalysis to see if that's the case

If it is you need two weeks of an antibiotic like Septra or Cipro to clear it

Please let me know if you need any more information Liam

I have had this pain on and off for 5 years!! I have nocturia from an enlarged prostate and am considering laser surgery for reduction of swelling

The pain is not excessive but does nullify the sensation of the ejaculation.

Well an enlarged prostate can be inflamed without actually being infected

But I would first try you on a medication like Flomax or Hytrin before going to surgery
