Hi,
Welcome to JA and thanks for this question. Im sorry to hear about your foley's catheter. Actually while it is possible for you to ejaculate while a foley's catheter is in place it is not recommended as it may cause your pain and discomfort. The reason being that if you ejaculate the semen would travel up the tubes and towards the urethra and since the foley's is blocking the urethra, the semen would get stuck at that site and would either be pushed back towards the prostate and epididymis or stay at the site. The semen would slowly get reabsorbed back into the body from either site however during that time it can cause you pain, discomfort, burning etc in the region. Secondly if this happens repeatedly then it can also lead to damage to the prostate etc as well which is what happens in patients with retrograde ejaculation.

While the foley's would not be blocked because of this problem because the opening of the foley's is inside the bladder, you would suffer from an increase in pain in the area and that is why it is not recommended that you ejaculate while a catheter is in place.
