There can be a number of different reasons why your boyfriend's penis hurts.

To find out what's going on with his 'member', I'd recommend figuring out exactly what type of pain he's experiencing, and keeping an eye out for related symptoms.

In most cases, the best course of action would be for him to visit a doctor for a professional opinion.

Why does my boyfriend's penis hurt?
There are a number of conditions which can cause penis pain. Everything from bladder stones through to urinary tract infections could be the source of your man's penile discomfort.

The first step would be to identify the exact 'location' of the pain:

  • Is it external?
  • Is it internal?
  • Does it affect the shaft? The foreskin? The head?
The next step would be to look out for other symptoms that might give you a clue as to what's going on down there:

  • Sores or bumps can be a sign of sexually-transmitted infections (STDs) like herpes.
  • Pain whilst urinating is also associated with STDs.
  • If his penis is unable to remain flaccid, this can be linked to conditions like phimosis.
If symptoms persist for longer than a couple of hours, I'd really suggest you take your boyfriend to visit a doctor. This is the only way to get a definitive answer to his penis problem.

Whatever it is, it needs to be checked out by a doctor right away. And I'd suggest you not have sex until a doctor gives the all clear.

It could be a UTI/water infection. If you can definitely rule out an STD, then he just needs to visit his GP for a swab test.

If it is a UTI, he may be given antibiotics by the doctor.

If you have sex, use a condom!
