Penis Health and Retrograde Ejaculation

Aug 28th 2015 at 7:04 PM

For many men, the release of semen is a source of great pleasure and a sign of robust penis health. Some men also take pride in the amount of fluid which they are able to spurt forth during an orgasm. Yet some men – those who suffer from retrograde ejaculation – are not able to produce an abundance of semen and may feel worried about this situation. Is retrograde ejaculation a penis health issue? And if so, what can a man do to address this condition?

Retrograde ejaculation

Most men are unfamiliar with the term “retrograde ejaculation,” although they may have heard of another term for it: dry orgasm. Both these phrases describe a situation in which a man has sex (alone or with a partner or partners) and achieves an orgasm but produces either no semen or only a small amount.

What has happened? Why isn’t the man spurting forth a more abundant amount of seed?

Sometimes the cause is simply frequency of ejaculation. A man may have experienced several ejaculations in a short period of time and has not had a chance to build back up his reserves. But when the cause is retrograde ejaculation, that isn’t the case.

Sidetracked semen

With a retrograde situation, the semen is entering the bladder rather than being released through the urethra.  How does it get there? Well, sperm start out in the testicles. They typically travel from there to the prostate, where other fluids are combined to create semen. After that, it’s into the urethra and out in an ejaculation.

When the semen leaves the prostate, the bladder neck muscle closes off so that the semen doesn’t fall into the bladder. With a retrograde condition, however, the muscle doesn’t work right, and so there’s ample room for the semen (or most of it) to get sidetracked into the bladder.

(Don’t worry – it eventually leaves the body, mixed in with urine.)

Causes

So what brings about retrograde ejaculation? It’s usually due to one (or more) of three causes:

- Surgery. Sometimes when surgery is performed on the prostate or nearby areas, the bladder neck muscle is compromised and weakened.

- Medications. Some medications may bring this condition about. The most common medications with this potential side effect are those used to treat high blood pressure, mood disorders or prostate issues.

- Nerve impairment. When there is nerve damage, often due to diabetes or multiple sclerosis, the bladder neck muscle may be weakened.

It’s important to note that in most men, retrograde ejaculation does not impede orgasm; they still experience the sexual sensation. However, some men do find that retrograde ejaculation produces a little pain. It also can be an issue for men trying to conceive a child with a partner.

Although retrograde ejaculation does not have a serious effect on the health of the penis itself, many men still wish to have it corrected if possible. If medications are the cause, switching to a different treatment may be the solution. In the case of nerve issues, treatments to resolve those can fix the ejaculatory problem. Sometimes medication may also resolve surgery-related issues.

While physical penis health is not greatly impeded by retrograde ejaculation, a man will want to keep his member in as high a state of health as possible; men with a healthy penis tend to be prouder of their organ and that translates into greater physical enjoyment. Regular use of a first-rate penis health crème (health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil) is an excellent way to maintain the health of any male member, whether it is affected by retrograde ejaculation or not. Men should select a crème that includes natural moisturizers such as Shea butter and vitamin E, as they can ease common penile pain and soreness. In addition, a crème with acetyl L-carnitine is excellent for helping to restore sensation that may have been lost as a result of rough handling. Keeping the manhood primed and healthy makes any man feel better.
