Experiencing burning ejaculation?

Know if burning ejaculation is caused by an STD

Are you experiencing burning ejaculation?

Overview of A Burning Ejaculation

Let’s get straight to the point: a burning ejaculation is not normal. Actually, any type of burning below the belt is not normal for men.  A burning ejaculation could be a symptom of STDs, specifically trichomoniasis. Trichomoniasis, a parasitic STD, is among the lesser known infections, but it is very common. Other STD symptoms that may accompany pain after ejaculation include irritation inside or around the opening of the penis and a mild discharge.

Possible Causes of Burning Ejaculation

Various several conditions can cause a painful or burning ejaculation. Here are a few:

  • Sexually transmitted diseases. Among various STDs, burning upon ejaculation (or after) may be a symptom of the following: 
    • Trichomoniasis 
    • Chlamydia 
    • Gonorrhea

Other causes of symptoms may include:

  • Orchitis, an inflamed testicle, is a complication of untreated STDs. This may also be caused by a bacterial infection.
  • Epididymitis is inflammation of the epididymis, the tube that carries sperm from the testicle to the sperm duct. This is also a complication of STDs and can be caused by miscellaneous bacterial infections.

Diagnosing Burning Ejaculation

STD testing is the best way to diagnose the painful sensation of burning after ejaculation. STD testing and trichomoniasis testing is available through at-home STD testing kits, and the test is performed through a urine sample—no painful swabs involved. Results are available within just a few days.

If you are not at risk for STDs, talk to your doctor about other possible causes and testing options. Either way, do not engage in sexual activity until this problem is diagnosed.

Treating Pain During Ejaculation and Other Symptoms

Most conditions that cause burning ejaculation are curable with antibiotics. Trichomoniasis is cured through the antibiotic metronidazole, whereas gonorrhea and chlamydia require other antibiotics. Orchitis and epididymitis are also treated with antibiotics. Symptoms should subside a few days to a week after beginning medication.

Be sure to avoid any sexual contact until treatment is fully completed otherwise you may risk reinfecting your partner and transferring the STD back and forth.

Preventing STDs

With such pesky and painful symptoms, most people opt to avoid STDs. Fortunately, latex condoms offer great protection against common culprits including chlamydia, gonorrhea, trichomoniasis and HIV. Practicing safe sex habits like mutual monogamy can also help reduce one's risk of contracting an STD.
