Hello! My name is***** to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with the reply momentarily.

Expert:  Dr. Arun Phophalia replied 3 months ago.

What is your age?

Do you have increased urinary frequency, urinary burning, diarrhea/constipation, nausea, vomiting, fever, loss of appetite, bloating, gas, tenderness on abdomen?

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
I am 20. Diarrhea and constipation have been a problem for the last 3 months or so. I feel like I need to pass gas, but it just won't come out. And my abdominal was tender while I had the pain. I laid down and it has since started to die down.During my walk, it felt like I needed to sit down because I felt like I needed to throw up

It is also kind of bubbly when I push on my right abdomen
Expert:  Dr. Arun Phophalia replied 3 months ago.

Your symptoms are more suggestive of mild grade intestinal infection. During ejaculation, there is stimulation of parasympathetic nerves. Same nerves supply the intestines too and a mild grade infection may cause pain due to it. The other possibility can be prostate inflammation (prostatitis). This is a non STD infection. If this recurs, you may need a course of antibiotic.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.

Thanks for using Just Answer.

As we discussed, your symptoms can be due to prostatitis too.

This is a non STD prostate infection due to pyogenic organisms which causes referred pain. To confirm the diagnosis, following are helpful;

1) A digital rectal exam by doctor would elicit tenderness on prostate.

2) A urine culture

3) Semen culture

4) Culture of prostate fluid after prostate massage expressed from penis.

The culture tests not only confirms the infection and causative organisms but also tells about the most efficacious antibiotic to treat it.
