Treatment for Retrograde Ejaculation

Retrograde Ejaculation or ejaculating backwards or Dry Ejaculation may be defined as the persistent inability to ejaculate forwards through the penis as is normal and to instead ejaculate backwards and into the urinary bladder.

Normally, just at the point of ejaculating, the muscular valve at the base on the bladder automatically snaps closed preventing the semen from moving backwards into the bladder and propelling it forwards instead. When there is retrograde ejaculation this mechanism fails to function properly allowing the ejaculate to take the line of least resistance and move backwards into the bladder.

Causes of Retrograde Ejaculation: Anything that interferes with the closing of the valve at the bladder neck at the point of ejaculation will cause Retrograde Ejaculation. In the main there may be surgical or medical factors at play in this situation.

Surgery to the prostate gland and its nerve supply such as TURP, prostatectomy or bladder surgery, may cause retrograde ejaculation.

Medical conditions like diabetes, multiple sclerosis or spinal cord injury can interfere with the nerve supply to the bladder neck and cause Retrograde Ejaculation or Dry Climax.

Certain medications used to treat high blood pressure or benign prostate hypertrophy can cause this condition as indeed can certain anti-depressants like those in the MAOI and SSRI group of antidepressants.

Retrograde Ejaculation does not of itself cause too much of a problem. Ejaculation can usually be felt as pleasurable and the semen can later be flushed from the bladder during normal urination with ease. Where retrograde ejaculation can cause considerably difficulty is in the area of fertility and reproduction. Today however, by using trans-rectal electro-stimulation of the prostate grand, healthy sperm can be retrieved for later use in AI and ICSI procedures.
