Ejaculation Problems

Ejaculation refers to the removal of semen from the male reproductary tract. It is accompanied by an orgasm most of the time. Ejaculation is the final stage of sexual stimulation among men. Problems with ejaculation can lead to many questions regarding the cause and treatment of the problems. Given below are some such questions about ejaculation problems that have been answered by Experts.

What is the cause of low semen discharge at the time of ejaculation?

A low semen discharge at the time of ejaculation could be caused by a prostate infection such as Prostatitis, retrograde ejaculation, ejaculatory duct obstruction or low testosterone levels. This is because of prostate medications such as Flomax.

Would it be dangerous to masturbate without ejaculation?

It may not be considered dangerous to masturbate without ejaculation. This is a technique that can be used by many doctors to treat premature ejaculation.

Would ejaculation cause any damage to an individual’s internal organs?

Ejaculation may not cause any harm to a person’s internal organs. It may not lead to any diseases either. It is a normal process of the body and is harmless.

What is the cause of the presence of blood before ejaculation?

The presence of blood in the semen or just before ejaculation may be common in men. It is a benign condition that can be caused because of inflammation of the ejaculatory ducts, Prostatitis or trauma to the prostate. This can occur by sitting or riding a bike for long periods of time. It can take up to eight weeks for the bleeding to stop. The individual may have to visit an urologist to get the PSA (prostate-specific antigen) checked and prostate examined for cancer.

What can cause pain in the lower back and perineum after ejaculation?

Pain in the lower back and perineum after ejaculation can be caused by a condition called recurrent Prostatitis. The individual can take a medication known as Cipro or Bactrim for a period of 30 days. The individual can also take Ibuprofen for up to two weeks if there is any pain or inflammation. The doctor will be able to prescribe a medication called Urelle in order to control the pain.

What can be the cause of delayed ejaculation in a 66 year old?

Delayed ejaculation in a 66 year old individual can be caused either because of medication or stress and anxiety. The individual can see a doctor or psychiatrist to treat this condition. The individual can also see an Urologist for the problem who can prescribe medication known as Cabergoline to help treat this condition.

What would cause anal burning at the time of or after ejaculation?

Anal burning at the time of or after ejaculation is caused because of Prostatitis which is an infection of the prostate. The prostate is located directly above the rectum and will cause pain in the rectum if it is infected. The individual may have to get the prostate examined by a doctor and start a 30 day course of antibiotics. Ibuprofen can also be taken to reduce the pain and inflammation.

Can medications cause retrograde ejaculation?

Retrograde ejaculation can often be caused by medications that are taken to treat problems of the prostrate such as Flomax or Uroxatral. If the individual is on any of these medications, they may have to stop them to control the retrograde ejaculation. If these medications cannot be stopped, the individual may have to resort to electro ejaculation to control the condition.

Can continuous medications that are used to delay ejaculation affect someone’s ability to ejaculate?

Some medications such as Zoloft and Paxil can affect a person’s ability to ejaculate. Medications that help a person urinate better such as Flomax and Hytrin can also affect ejaculation. If the individual is on any of these medications, they can visit an urologist. The course of treatment will depend on the individual’s history, physical examination and labs.

Can retrograde ejaculation cause bladder cancer or any other serious problems in the body?

Retrograde ejaculation may not lead to bladder cancer or any other serious condition in the body. It is only caused when the semen flows backwards in an individual’s bladder and is completely harmless.
