Hello,
Thanks for writing to us.

Pain in left testicle and groin when stopping urination might be suggestive of an infection in the region like- infection of the epididymis, prostate, bladder, or seminal vesicles.

Seeking the help of a urologist at this point will be helpful to find out the infection early. Systemic antibiotics might be needed for the treatment.

It is best to maintain good hygiene till the infection is cured properly.

I hope this answers your query.If you have any questions I will be happy to answer.
Please close the query if you have no other questions.

Wishing you good health...
Regards.

Hello,
Thanks for writing back.

Now from this description , physical problem seems to be more than the infection one.

Symptoms you described above might occur due to pudendal nerve irritation. Irritation of the pudendal nerve may result in sensory symptoms in any or all areas it supplies and spasms of the muscles supplied by it.

Extended sitting at work and frequent long drives are among the causes of pudendal nerve compression ,so I advice you to avoid prolong sitting in one posture. Take some breake during your work and do pelvic floor exersices for strengthening of muscles to improve core and lower extremity balance and stability.

Hope this information helps you.

Wishing you good health...
Regards.

Thanks for writing again.

In most cases these are well managed by good physical therapy.

I would suggest getting this evaluated by your doctor for detailed examination so that proper management could be taken.

I recently had cystitis. When my period came I felt pain after urinating (not while) which lasted for an hour or so. Then it went away. Now I have a whitish vaginal discharge which is thick. It does not itch, burn or smell. Is it possible that this is normal vaginal discharge or not? And the pain after urination is still here. Is it possible that I have some kind of an infection which is not a UTI but something vaginal instead which is causing the burning after peeing?
