Erectile dysfunction (ED)is commonly called impotence and is defined as being unable to get or keep the penis erect without the use of pharmaceuticals or surgical interventions. It is not uncommon for erectile dysfunction to cause men to experience sexual dysfunction, impotence, loss of interest or even loss of sex drive. According to an ED Doctor, a common symptom of ED is pain during intercourse. This is a common condition and can have a serious impact on personal health and life. Pain during intercourse is often caused by internal or external causes. External causes of pain during intercourse can include: stretching, friction, injuries, medical procedures and infections. Internal causes of pain during intercourse include physical problems such as depression, anxiety, headaches, low energy, digestive disorders, thyroid problems, kidney problems, depression, obesity and medications. Internal causes of pain during intercourse include: Stretching and friction can result from tension or stretching of pelvic floor muscles. This tension and stretching can cause discomfort and pain in the area of the pudendy tissues known as pudendal nerve pulmonary dysfunction, an illness of the pudendal nerve and the pudendal nerve. This is a condition that involves chronic pain that affects the pudendal nerve and the pelvic floor. The pudendal nerve originates from the pelvic nerves that pulse to the pelvic girdle. Because it runs across the abdomen and pits the back of the spine, it is known as the pudendal nerve. Sometimes called the “perineal nerve,” the pudendal nerve has a long, thin cord that traces from the pelvic nerve that connects to the pelvic floor muscles at the base of the bladder, which in turn run up to the pelvic nerve that travels down to the lower abdomen.

A pudendal nerve block can cause urinary incontinence, a condition in which a person cannot hold a urine stream. The pudendal nerve blocks the flow of the urine and produces involuntary, powerful contractions of the pelvic muscles. For this reason, pudendal nerve block can be one of the earliest symptoms of a urinary tract infection. It is also one of the easiest symptoms to identify. However, if the bladder becomes obstructed by swelling, infection or other medical conditions, this test can be of great help in pinpointing the cause.

The Diagnosis Pudendal nerve block is usually diagnosed by an evaluation of the urine stream, with or without the presence of an abscess. If the bladder is blocked with a cyst or other accumulation of pus, a bladder ultrasound may be helpful in detecting if an abscess is present.
