Burning - does it happen to you sometimes?
First, before anyone gets too excited by it: Neither my wife nor I have any kind of infection - I have been tested routinely at Dr. appts, as has she. That said, I have a situation that has happened to me as long as I have been able to have an orgasm.
Normally, I have no problems at all, and there is nothing to dampen the afterglow. About once every 2 - 3 months, or maybe a little less often, after I ejaculate, I have a great deal of burning in my urethra. The burning makes me feel like I need to urinate very badly, but if I do, the urination is extremely painful - it almost feels like I have needles in my urethra. The burning first becomes noticeable about the time the erection begins to subside.
The burning only lasts for somewhere between a half hour, and 2 hours (2 hours is extreme, usually closer to a half hour). If I wait and just refuse to urinate before the burning subsides, then I will have no pain the first time I urinate.
This started back when I first started to masturbate, and sometimes even happens after sex with my wife even now. I have NEVER complained about it to her - want to be sure to not mess up her afterglow. (She is aware that it happens sometimes, but I never tell her WHEN it happens.) I tried talking to the urologist about it when I was first being evaluated for an enlarged prostate, but every time I said something about it, he would move on to the other topics we were discussing - like he didn't think it was important. So I have not pursued it any further.
I've tried associating it with spicy food, slight dehydration, and just about every other factor I can think of, but I haven't been able to make any correlation.
Now, since it happened again this morning, I'm just wondering again if any other guys ever have this happen to them.
