When a man’s male organ feels like it’s the King of Dragons, it’s a no bueno kind of feeling. Seeing as healthy men pee between six to eight times each day, it can be a bathroom showdown of how fast a man can urinate before the pain knocks him out. Painful urination, or dysuria, is a condition that affects the bladder and nearby body parts. There are many causes from something simple to the more complex and everything in between. Here are six common non-STI causes of painful urination and how to undo the fire.

#1: Urinary Tract Infection (UTI)

The most common cause of pain during urination, UTIs appear when bacteria invade the urinary tract. This area includes the kidney, bladder, and urethra as they all have a part in the urine making and evacuating process.

With a UTI, men usually experience the urge to urinate frequently, cloudy or blood-tinged urine, a fever, stinky pee and pain in the side and/or back. A UTI can usually be cleared up in a few days with antibiotics. In extreme cases, a trip to the ER might be necessary.

#2: Allergic Reaction

Another common reason for pain during urination is an allergic reaction to either medication or product that touches the skin such as body wash, latex, or laundry detergent. If redness, swelling, rash, or itching happen in addition to painful urination, take an antihistamine. If a man recently started taking a new medication, contact a doctor immediately.

#3: Kidney Stones

Oh, the painful ballad of woe for the man who has to pass a kidney stone. With a pain so bad it’s been known to make even the strongest man pass out; kidney stones are quite common. Kidney stones are the build-up of calcium or uric acid which form stones in and around the kidneys. When these stones become lodged in the place where the urine meets the bladder, it causes painful urination.

Additional symptoms common to kidney stones are pink or brown tinted urine, nausea, cloudy urine, urination is small spurts, pain in the back and side, interchangeable feelings of hot of chills, and pain that varies in intensity. Usually men have to pass them (urinate them out). If the stones are too big to pass, a doctor may have to use shock wave lithotripsy to break them into smaller pieces so they can be passed.

#4: Bladder Pain Syndrome (BPS)

Known by the medical diagnosis, interstitial cystitis, BPS is a chronic bladder issue. There is a sensation of both pain and pressure in the bladder. It is almost always accompanied by lower urinary tract symptoms which have lasted six weeks or more without an identified cause. Symptoms can range from mild to severe and can even come and go. This cause of painful urination is also linked to companion medical issues like irritable bowel syndrome, fibromyalgia, and other chronic pain issues.

#5: Urethritis

Urethritis is the inflammation of the urethra which is the tube that carried urine out of the body. Painful urination is the primary symptom of urethritis. It is often caused by bacteria and can be cleared up with antibiotics.

#6: Prostatitis

Another bacterial infection, prostatitis, can cause pain during urination. Other symptoms include difficulty in urinating or excessive urination (especially at night), trouble ejaculating, and aching in the bladder, testicles, and male organ. A man should see a doctor immediately for antibiotics. In more serious cases, the course of antibiotics can be three months long.

Treatment and Prevention

Start by calling the doc. Next, drink as much water as possible to dilute the urine and take some ibuprofen for the pain. Clean the male organ and ensure it is well-moisturized. Use a gentle cleanser to thoroughly and tenderly wash the member, rinse repeatedly, and after drying, apply a specially formulated male organ health creme (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which has been clinically proven safe and mild for skin). These types of crèmes contain all-natural ingredients and a wide-range of vitamins such as A, B, C, D, and E, that serve as antibacterials, as well as a rejuvenators that can calm the male organ while providing health benefits.
