I'm really hoping this works because I haven't been able to find a clear answer in all the research I've done.
About 5 years ago my ex girlfriend and I tried Anal sex, at some point in the week to follow I noticed it felt like my urethra was itching inside the penis, all the way down to the scrotum. After about 2 days the itching seemed to go away.
Then I started noticing a very strong fishy odor that would show up anytime I became "excitable" and became strongest when I ejaculated. Over the past 5 years this smell hasn't gone away, and the only time it'll go away is if I stop masturbating for about a week or more, but comes back the moment I start masturbating again. Not after masturbating, literally, during masturbation.
I also noticed that after urination, I'd drip a considerable amount if I didn't press at the area just beneath my scrotum. Now, 5 years later I'm noticing slight difficulty in peeing. It doesn't hurt or burn, but getting it "flowing" isn't very easy at first.
Now, I've read - countless - responses to similar posts and everyone points to it being a simple matter of not washing properly. I'm a male, I've been masturbating for a long time - I know for certain that I'm washing very thoroughly, and I know better than anyone what I used to smell like - even when unclean - and this fishy odor was never present before, nor was the strange urination problems. I keep myself very clean, and to give a better idea, this fishy odor can come back even if it's immediately after stepping out of the shower. Washing with soap, using salts etc. are all great advice for someone who simply has natural genital odor - but I can say with certainty this isn't the problem for me.
At this point I feel like I must have something bacterial or fungal nesting in my prostate, which would explain why the smell shows up during and before ejaculation, but I don't have the money to go get all the tests done that would be needed.
Any help would be -greatly- appreciated.
