Retrograde Ejaculation happens when the semen enters the bladder instead of going out via the urethra. Healthy and normally produced sperm is not ejaculated as a result. While the condition is harmless, infertility is a consequence.
Retrograde is quite uncommon and the presence of semen in the bladder is harmless. The semen, mixed with the urine, will exit the body through normal urination. Retrograde ejaculation does not affect a man’s ability to get an erection or have an orgasm.
Unless the couple is attempting to start a family with no success, retrograde ejaculation does not require treatment. In such instances, the doctor will recommend a treatment based on the underlying cause which could be nerve damage caused by diabetes, multiple sclerosis, certain surgeries, and other conditions or treatments.
Stress, depression and other lifestyle factors may often be associated with retrograde ejaculation. A holistic treating plan is very beneficial in reducing stress and aid in improving overall health.
