    Retrograde Ejaculation

    A rarer variety of ejaculatory problem that causes retrograde ejaculation, where the sperm squirt backwards into the bladder, rather than outwards. Read more →

    Hi, I'm 29 and for the last 11 years I've had problems with ejaculating. I had 8 Hypospadias repairs uptill the age of 11 and then another at age 17 to repair a slight curvature which I was worried about. Instead of advising me that the curvature was fine my doctor operated on me and ever since I have had delayed ejaculation, sometimes it can last hours without ejaculation and I end up with little cuts on my penis (from friction). The underside of my penis has a lot of scar tissue and I only seem to be able to ejaculate by masturbating and not by penetration. It's been too long now and I'm fed up as it makes my sex life (with or without partners) difficult and embarrasing!

    Hi, am 20 year old, I can pull the skin of my penis back over the head when flacid, but when erect or semi-erect it can't be done without causing pain. It seems that the foreskin is attached to the underside of the penis by a tight piece of skin. but i can ejaculate,I had never felt pain during ejaculation. I never had sex with anybody, so i don't know whether it would pain during sex. Is this a real problem? i have heard about steroid creams how much does it cost? And my penis is not clean too. what should i do? Is there any way that i can confirm its phimosis, If not treated will it cause any problems. I had no problem till now, proper ejaculation can be done.. pl z doctors help me.

    Is it normal for men to have chunks in their semen. I know the other day when I was whipping up semen with a towel I noticed a solid gel like bits in the semen which would stick to my skin. also what would cause a man to be unable to achieve ejaculation. I am going to be 32. I am finding it much much more difficult to reach ejaculation. I a lot of the times get bored and end up giving up. sometimes I have to go a week before I can achieve an ejaculation. it doesn't make sense to me. I used to be able to masturbate and ejaculate more frequently I figure its a side effect of being circumcised as a child. my penis is just getting less sensitive as I get older. I do use Lube I purchased from sex shop that doesn't help.

    I have the same thing. Sometimes it is like A ball of clear silly string. But I do not have a problem reaching my climax. What is causing the jelly like stuff. It does not hurt coming out.

    you get new sperm supply everyday so the chunks is just dead sperm due to lack of ejaculation

    I'm the same, I'm 20 too. I find when I have a wank it doesn't take long either. Buy when I'm drunk I last ages. But genral sex doesn't last at all.

    Hi im almost 21 and suffered from this myself for awhile i found doing reverse kegel exercises helped and changing position and having more foreplay. also dnt panic about blowing your load to early as you will over stimulate yourself

    I have been with my partner for sevral years and we are trying for a baby. But I seem to have a problem, after sex my partners ejaculation always seems to come out of me. No ejaculation, no baby. Is there something wrong with me?

    It is normal for the sperm to come out of you, try to stay laying down for a while after. Some of it will still manage to get up there. As long as you and him are fertile you should still be able to fall pregnant. Also try to have intercourse when you ovulate or around that time, usually in the middle of your cycle. Is when you will be most fertile. You can even buy testing kits that will tell you when you ovulate and take your temperature as it changes when you ovulate. Good luck x

    I have the same problem, I don't have an answer but I wanted you to know you are not alone, and I'm glad that its not just me. Good luck with trying, and I find it helps to lie flat and keep your muscles relaxed even maybe place your hand there to hold as much as possible in for ten minutes, Hopefully someone will have an answer for us x

    Premature ejaculation can vary hugely in type. Some condoms and sexual lubricants can have numbing gels which can help. Kegel exercises can help as squeezing your PC muscles can prevent ejaculation during intercourse. Simpling pausing during sex can help to extend the time before ejaculation

    Im not sure if this is the problem, but my 35 year old fiance seems to have problems with Ejaculation. He seems to have all the signs of having an orgasm, but NEVER ejaculates. When he was 6 weeks old he had an op to lower a testicle, his mother was told that this would enable him to have a family when he was older, but if this is happening, is it the op thats caused the problem, or is it Retrograde Ejaculation?? Im at my wits end because i had hoped we would be starting a family in the future. Can anyone advise??

    Hi, I am 16 and I have 3 problems. One, I produce a lot of pre-ejaculatory fluid, even when i am not sexually aroused, sometimes my underwear gets covered from simple, long hugs, usually even when i do not have an erection. This is quite embarrassing, is this normal? Two, my sperm is yellow, and I am a virgin, but I know sperm is supposed to be white, is there anything wrong? Three, I suffer from premature ejaculation. I can sometimes masturbate in less than a minute. Is there any cures for this or ways to help prolong the period before ejaculation? Some help would be very much appreciated, as I do worry quite a lot about it, thanks.

    wow everything you wrote is everything i'm going through also.. the pre-ejaculatory fluid is the worst..just the thought of anything sexual brings it on a lot of the time and it sucks :(

    I am 24 years old and when i went to my gp she suggested that i had varicocele. When this first started i had gone to the doctor with problems with my ejaculation. It was clear with blood in it. I halso had a bit of swelling in my prostate which i got antibiotics for. I was sent for STI tests and all came back clear. My ejaculation returned to what it should look like but there isnt as much now and the varicocele is still there. I am slightly concerned that something isnt right? Should i get checked over again or is this symptoms that occur because of varicocele. Thanks.

    Hi, i am a 41year old male and for about the last 10years or so I have had this terrible pain in my penis, ONLY at the point of ejaculation and ONLY when having sex, not when masturbating!!??

    I have gone through my local doctor, seen specialists but to no avail. My semen is yellowish and sparse - previously was whitish and with good volume when younger, now over 60. I have lost the pleasure surge upon ejaculation and also find it difficult to achieve ejaculation, very little pleasure and, in fact, mostly discomfort. I researched the info and thought retrograde ejaculation was the issue but hospital tests came back negative. Love sex in all other aspects, no ED issues at all, rather the other way but pleasure gone. Suggestions?

    Thanks for writing in as I have all symptoms you have and you have reassured me. I do have ED problems as well but I'm not bothered as I have no feeling in the regard for some ten years or more. My wife and I are quite content and accept our lot.

    i am not very sure about this but i would say that when you masturbate, before ejaculation, stop and wait for about 10 secs and then continue and to repeat the process again as it helps you maintain time before ejaculation when having sex with your gf!

    You may be experiencing retrograde ejaculation. This can be caused by prostate surgery, diabetes and some medications. I assume your GP is an old friend because you have been seeing him for so long (not cuz you see a mate about medical problems). He is there to help you, he knows about all these conditions and I PROMISE you he has treated many men with similar problems before. If you have recently had surgery, talk to the surgeon, if not, it is likely that there is medication that can fix this for you so talk to your GP. You'll be embarrassed for 2 minutes before you realize its not so bad and then you can get back your sex life! If you REALLY don't want your GP to know then you need to see another one and probably at a different clinic.

    my partner has a ejaculation problems for the past 2 years or so, foreplay is fine, but as soon as we have intercourse within a min he ejaculates. he is 29 and is getting us both down. will this problem affect our chance of having another baby.

    I have exactly the same problem on my hands! ive been with my partner 3 years and have never knows us to have sex that lasts longer than 2 or 3 minutes. It never used to bother me but now its starting to.. just seems as soon as im really starting to enjoy intercourse its over! i have never had a orgasm before because of this. But we do have two beautiful children together so fertility is not a problem! X

    Hi, Hyperviscous and hypercoagulating semen can be caused by problems within the prostate gland. The prostate gland secretes most of the fluid in the semen and it secretes the enzymes necessary for keeping the semen in a liquefied state. Decreased force of ejaculation and quantity of semen can also be due to prostate abnormalities and will need to be evaluated thoroughly. Your urologist can perform a physical exam to assess whether the prostate gland is enlarged. Additional reasons for clumping of semen include infrequent ejaculation. Semen analysis would reveal any intrinsic abnormality of the composition of the semen and would give indications as to what part of the tract is responsible.

    Hi! I have been looking at the Boots website and found out about the condition of Retrograde Ejaculation and think I might have this problem, after I masturbate I often get a pain in my abdomen/bladder. I have had blood tests which have not showed anything up, I would just like to know what the symptoms of Retrograde Ejaculation are.
