Painful ejaculation (PE) is an uncommon problem that may have psychological or organic causes. Although ejaculatory pain in the general male population is considered to be 1%, it is presented a serious problem for 88–91% of men who experience it. It can be caused by prostatectomy, a history of prostatitis,6 pelvic radiation, lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) diagnosed with clinical benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), chronic pelvic pain disorder, and neuroleptics.
