Can constipation cause penis pain ?
Black109 posted:
I've had a problem that won't go away for the past 7 months. I am suffering from incredible sharp pain that won't go away in my urethra. It feels as if a needle is sticking in it. I've also been getting pain just above my pelvic bone, especially after urinating. I've been going to a urologist and so far nothing we tried has worked. We've done anti-fungal stuff, antibiotics, A cystoscopy, a CT scan, a prostate exam. Everything seems to be coming out normal. We're going under the assumption that it may be some kind of prostate infection but from what I read about them, they also cause trouble urinating as well and I have no problem with that. I also have been suffering from constipation a lot more than usual. Could the constipation be causing my urethra pain ? I have a feeling that there may be a link because I took a stool softener and within about 12 hours, my urethra pain shot up a thousand fold for some reason. I'm beginning to think that when I have a bowel movement that it's somehow massively irritating or damaging my urethra and or prostate. Is this a possibility ? I've looked all over and have not noticed any kind of link listed. I cannot live with this pain forever ! I need it to stop ! It's excruciating and it's gone on long enough !

Add to the above, pain behind my testicles as well. It feels like I've been kicked in the groin.
