Hello from JustAnswer.

It will help if you could provide some further information.

Do you mean that you are having an orgasm and no ejaculation?

Or do you mean that you cannot achieve an orgasm?

How long has it been since the infection?

What antibiotic was used to treat the infection?

How long was the antibiotic taken?

Thank you for the clarification.

If there is ongoing difficulty with achieving an orgasm following a urinary tract infection, the primary concern would be that the infection has settled into the prostate and is causing a mild, chronic infection. The prostate is difficult to penetrate with antibiotics, and short courses of antibiotics that may clear other urinary infections will not clear the prostate. It is also possible that the infection has damaged the nerves or blood vessels that serve the penis, but a prostate infection would be more common.

The diagnosis would be based on the findings on prostate exam and may require examination of fluid expressed from the prostate during the exam.

Most cases of prostate infections are managed by primary care physicians, but unclear cases or stubborn cases may require consultation with a Urologist, and there are many Urologists in South Florida. However, there is a web site that will allow you to enter your zip code and see the Urologists that are close to you. See http://www.urologyhealth.org/find-a-urologist.

If I can provide any clarification, please let me know.
