Post Semen/precum "leakage" and sexual issues -- prostatisis?
Hi all, I'm looking for some feedback on whether or not my strange symptoms could be prosthesis or a pelvic floor dysfunction.

About 1.5 years ago I experienced a very sudden and significant increase in the amount of precum/cowper's fluid fluid I produce, and it has continued ever since. I noticed this after a period where I stopped ejaculating for about a month due to some heavy anxiety and stress I was experiencing at the time.

I began feeling discomfort in my urethra/pelvic area and figured I was overly "backed up" after abstaining so long, and started masturbating again. This relieved the immediate discomfort although I feel like I still have irregular discomfort and mild pain in the general area from time to time. After I masturbated after my abstinence, I noticed the problem.

More specifically: If I get even a partial erection, just for a minute, I'll later notice my glans is covered in precum (clear, mucousy, no odour, and it is only associated with sexual arousal). During sex there will be an excessive amount. If I ejaculate, the clear fluid continues to leak for hours afterwards. Even if I urinate it continues, which used to be effective in 'clearing the pipes' for me. I should also mention that this fluid is much thicker and stickier than it used to be. And despite the increase in precum, generally the volume of ejaculate I produce is much less. Sometimes there is barely any.

I have also had sexual issues including weaker erections, difficulty maintaining erections, lack of control "holding in" cum, and occasionally very premature ejaculation (i.e. foreplay begins and I immediately orgasm. This has never happened before, not even close). I also have noticed significantly less morning erections over the last year. I believe there is a psychological component as I have become rather depressed and anxious over these issues, but I know there has been some physical change as well.

I have been urine-tested multiple times for STDs & general infections and the results are always negative, although I have not received a blood test for HSV. I had a standard prostate exam about a year ago, and the urologist said it felt normal at the time. That said, I have to believe something has changed in my prostate and wondering if it is prostatitis or perhaps a pelvic floor disorder. This has really affected my sexual confidence and I would really like to resolve it.

Thank you in advance for any insight.

You could ask your urologist to do an EPS culture and semen culture to see if there are any bacteria present

I had some of your symptoms...the precum that would come out at the slightest arousal and continue after ejaculation. Sometimes i would wake up in morning and have some. It didnt effect anything with me sexually though. Didnt feel different or last longer or shorter. That has subsided a bit in recent months. Just red glands and swollen meatus after ejaculation

I'm also experiencing the irritated/inflamed glans on erection & ejaculation. Have you found any treatment for it that works?

I had a TRUS today and am getting my semen cultured tomorrow. EPS was done a week ago; I guess I'll get the results & prognosis next appointment in a couple weeks.
