Brief Answer:
Might be infection or inflammation.

Detailed Answer:
Thank you Theo for being with HealthcareMagic!!!

Penile pain and pain in the glans is a very broad topic. If it is swollen and the skin covering it is also swollen then it is called balanophosthitis or infection of the glans penis and the preputial skin. This condition needs antibiotic treatment and NSAIDs.

If there is no obvious visible swelling then it could be inflammation due to excessive ejaculation and masturbation. You should abstain from sexual activity for one to to weeks or until the Pain goes away.

Drinking vitamin C and plenty of fluids would also help alot. I hope I have answered your question satisfactorily.

this has happened periodically thru-out my life starting at about 17, it began again about a week ago again , i'm 40, when i urinate, it becomes painfull and i bleed (the tip of the penis) the blood is at the start of my urination, so it's at the beginning of my urination, it's not an internal problem but in the tip of the penis. Why does this happen? it bleeds for 2-3 days then stops, then i'm okay, but it does this maybe 2-3 times a year, Why?

I'm a heterosexual male, even if i have a long lovemaking session (60-90 minutes) with a women it seems like the tip can't take the punishment, i have started bleeding during sex, usually if i'm making love doggie-style, it's extremely vulnerable. I'm serious this is not a joke. Have you heard of anything like this?
