Urinary Disorders

Ache in Abdomen When Getting an Erection

01/12/2011

Question:

For about 2 weeks now every time I get an erection I get a mild ache (slight pain) in my right lower abdomen area below my hip. It goes away quickly but it is an unusual feeling and I don`t want to ignore it. I thought it might be a hernia symptom or strain. I have strained myself before down there and recovered but it has been months since then and otherwise feel fine. I don`t remember doing anything to cause this. Thanks for any advice.

Answer:

I am not what the is causing your discomfort. It would be worth being examined to be sure there is no hernia or strain causing the discomfort.
