Urethra discomfort/incontinence post-orgasm

Edited , 2 users are following.

I am a 25 year old white male that leads a healthy lifestyle with good diet and exercise. I have had chlamydia 2 times several years ago, cleared out with the pill both times, I currently have no stds that show up in a regular screening. I estimate I have had the following problem for about 2-3 years. Sometimes after I orgasm, whether from masturbation or intercourse, I have to sit on the toilet for a while because I get this feeling that I need to urinate that doesn't go away even after I've pushed out every bit of urine that I can. So I guess it's not really technically incontinence because I can control the release of urine but the urge is so strong and unbearable that I feel like I have to push out some urine and I keep relaxing and then pushing several times even after all the urine is gone. The discomfort prevents me from sitting or laying down or walking for more than a couple minutes before I give up and go to the bathroom. It is such an uncomfortable feeling that I can't do anything but sit on the toilet, and on the worst occurrences I have to draw a bath and sit in it for at least 30 minutes, letting out tiny amounts of urine every couple minutes or so as my bladder allows. It seems that rubbing my urethra where the base of my penis goes into the perineum seems to help the feeling some, unless I do it too hard then it hurts. I have tried to find a correlation between frequency of orgasms or anything else to when this discomfort occurs, but to me it seems to be random. It used to happen 1-5 times a month I would say but fortunately now it only happens once every couple months, but it still is a pain to deal with when it happens. The other day I had the feeling from when I woke up to when I got off work and went home and took a nap even though I hadn't orgasmed, but it was fortunately a light enough sensation that I was able to work and just power through it, as opposed to the incidents after I orgasm. My first thought would be a prostate issue but like I said I am only 25. I tried checking to feel my prostate myself and I couldn't locate it so I don't think it is enlarged but I can't be sure. I would appreciate any input or ideas about what might be causing this problem.

    have you had your urine checked for an infection? Sounds like you have a sensitive urethra, with possibly urethritis.

      Thanks for your reply, I will get my urine checked for an infection and ask my provider about urethritis. I forgot to mention one other symptom, often times after a regular urination (not post-orgasm) I will have a small unwanted dribble of urine immediately following, like when I stand up from the toilet or put my penis back into my pants, getting a little bit dripping down my leg. Nothing that can be noticed by others, but very annoying to me. No pain or discomfort just an unwanted release of urine.

      Also, what infections should they be looking for? I get regular std screens and I don't have any that show up on a common std check.

      I haven't drank alcohol at all for over a year and I rarely drink caffeine but I do enjoy spicy food sometimes. I will see if my provider can check for an e. coli infection. Again, thank you so much for your input!
