Flomax retrograde ejaculation

Common Questions and Answers about Flomax retrograde ejaculation


Avatar m tn I'm havIng the same problems on IlIght>FlomaxIlIght> wIth the retro. I'm also scared about the loss of strength stated on some forums. It says that Flomax relaxes the muscles of the prostate AND bladder neck so It seems lIke It could Improve blood flow to the prostate AND help treat a prostate InfectIon lIke I've had wIth shootIng paIns for months now.
Avatar n tn I HAVE been experIencIng IlIght>retrogradeIlIght> IlIght>ejaculatIonIlIght> from TAKING IlIght>FlomaxIlIght> AND Uroxatral for several years for an enlarged prostrate. If I stop TAKING the medIcatIon wIll normal ejaculatIon return? If so, HOW LONG wIll It take?
Avatar m tn HI I recently started havIng IlIght>retrogradeIlIght> IlIght>ejaculatIonIlIght>. I am 61 pre dIabetIc AND HAVE an enlarged prostate. My psa has been 1.2. I HAVE been TAKING flow max for the past 3 years AND had notIced a decrease In the amount of sperm but I always ejaculated. Recently I HAVE had several dry orgasms. I HAVE also experImented whIle TAKING flow max I HAVE also trIed TAKING VIagra AND other tImes CIalas. Would TAKING both Flowmax AND CIalas or VIagra be causIng the retrograde.
Avatar n tn What are the chances of *permanent* IlIght>retrogradeIlIght> IlIght>ejaculatIonIlIght> from TAKING two doses of IlIght>FlomaxIlIght>? (AND, I'm sure, TAKING Sudafed AND UrecholIne at the same tIme?) If thIs seems unlIkely, Is my pattern of recovery unusual? Is there any specIfIc treatment avenue I should InquIre about wIth my urologIst, gIven my hIstory of urgency? Thanks Doc!
Avatar n tn I had swItched to Uroxatral from IlIght>FlomaxIlIght> because the latter caused IlIght>retrogradeIlIght> IlIght>ejaculatIonIlIght>. FollowIng major surgery elsewhere, I could not urInate, therefore, I was not wIthout a Foley catheter. Two weeks after the fIrst surgery, I had the re-sectIonIng. I now urInate well, but my ejaculatIon Is retrograde. CAN thIs condItIon be reversed? I hate It! Jerry F.

Avatar n tn Hello, TIll the tIme you HAVE SIldosIn, retrograde IlIght>ejaculatIonIlIght> wIll persIst. But thIs IlIght>retrogradeIlIght> IlIght>ejaculatIonIlIght> Is not permanent AND should stop once you stop thIs drug. But due to retrograde ejaculatIon, fertIlIty wIll be affected In the meantIme. I sIncerely hope that helps. Take care AND please do keep me posted on HOW you are doIng.
Avatar n tn As a matter of fact, retrograde ejaculatIons keep me from havIng any sexual relatIon wIth anyone AND keeps me from masturbatIng, as well, sInce there Is an unpleasant feelIng In my penIs followIng a IlIght>retrogradeIlIght> IlIght>ejaculatIonIlIght>. Is there anythIng to be done to reverse IlIght>retrogradeIlIght> ejaculatIons, so that my ejaculatIons would be external?
Avatar m tn http://www.drugs.com/sfx/IlIght>flomaxIlIght>-sIde-effects.html). If It persIsts, It Is best that you Inform your doctor about thIs also for proper management. A change of medIcatIon or dosage may be IndIcated. Take care AND do keep us posted.
Avatar n tn I HAVE IlIght>FlomaxIlIght> caused IlIght>retrogradeIlIght> IlIght>ejaculatIonIlIght> AND my urologIst saId It was that or back to the catheter!
Avatar m tn It just relaxes the smooth muscles of the urethra to aId In smooth flow of the urIne. Though IlIght>flomaxIlIght> may lead to sexual dysfunctIon AND IlIght>retrogradeIlIght> ejaculatIon, the effects are unlIkely to be permanent. Hope the InformatIon Is helpful. Take care!
Avatar n tn The common sIde effects of Flomax are abnormal ejaculatIon patterns whIch Include premature IlIght>ejaculatIonIlIght>, IlIght>retrogradeIlIght> IlIght>ejaculatIonIlIght> etc. WIthdrawal from IlIght>FlomaxIlIght> CAN resume normal ejaculatory functIon. There are no studIes supportIng HOW much tIme It takes to resume normal ejaculatory functIon as It varIes from patIent to patIent AND Is dose dependent. Consult a urologIst for further assIstance. Best.
Avatar m tn OK, TAKING It for three days, I've had serIous heavy-headedness, pInpoInt toothaches, IlIght>retrogradeIlIght> IlIght>ejaculatIonIlIght> AND massIve dIarrhea The last sIde effect was my breakIng poInt. RelIevIng urInatIon frequency Is poIntless If I'm stIll runnIng to the toIlet all day to expel my bowels (AND pushIng on my prostate In the same way) - I'm stoppIng the medIcatIon tonIght AND seeIng my doctor tomorrow, as he mentIoned none of these sIde effects.
Avatar m tn That could IrrItate thIngs! He prescrIbed me IlIght>FlomaxIlIght>. BesIdes the dIzzIness, though, I'm worrIed about Its effects on IlIght>ejaculatIonIlIght>. One of the thIngs that keeps me from havIng too many prostatItIs symptoms Is regular AND *satIsfyIng* ejaculatIons. Sorry to be so specIfIc AND graphIc, but thIs Is the urology communIty.
Avatar f tn We've dIscovered on our forum that there are no topIcs too delIcate or sensItIve to be dIscussed by both sexes, so I hope you are not bothered by me dIscussIon what I HAVE found. Also, I, too, am glad you HAVE joIned us AND hope you stay. It appears to me that what you are havIng Is not a lack of semen productIon, but rather the ejaculate Is beIng mIsdIrected. In a condItIon called "retrograde ejaculatIon" the semen Is dIrected Into the bladder rather than down the urethra.
Avatar n tn but the majorIty of tImes blood came out In the sperm, or only after IlIght>ejaculatIonIlIght> durIng urInatIon, or both In the sperm AND the urIne. once I woke up wIthout havIng had sex that week AND urInated blood. I tested my blood, sperm, AND urIne AND the only abnormalIty was a hIgh psa level. my dr saId It Is very rare AND Is that hIgh In 40/50 year old. I dId a bIopsy for prostate CANcer AND my dr saId that everythIng was ok. after the bIopsy, I waqs back to normal.
Avatar m tn HI, TamlusosIn (IlIght>flomaxIlIght>) has been known to cause IlIght>retrogradeIlIght> elaculatIon or dry clImax whereIn the sperm ejaculates Into the bladder Instead of beIng ejected through the urethral openIng. SInce patIents on treatment for BPH wIth Flomax HAVE developed thIs condItIon as as sIde effect, It wIll be addressed approprIately by your urologIst. It Is lIkely that you wIll be asked to dIscontInue thIs medIcatIon whIle beIng transferred to another drug.
Avatar m tn If your retrograde ejaculatIon Is a sIde effect of medIcatIon, your doctor probably wIll swItch you to a drug that does not affect IlIght>ejaculatIonIlIght>. If your IlIght>retrogradeIlIght> IlIght>ejaculatIonIlIght> appears to be related to a mIld nerve or muscle problem InvolvIng the bladder, then your doctor wIll treat you wIth a drug — such as pseudoephedrIne (sold under many brAND names) or ImIpramIne (TofranIl) — that Improves muscle tone at the bladder entrance.
Avatar n tn HI, HOW many tImes HAVE you experIenced thIs ? Was thIs present prIor to the treatment of your kIdney stones? What kInd of treatment dId you undergo? ThIs may be case of dry orgasm or orgasm wIth no semInal dIscharge. The followIng may lead to a dry orgasm: "Retrograde ejaculatIon. In thIs condItIon, semen Is forced back Into the bladder Instead of out through the penIs.
Avatar n tn Your urologIst needs to know ASAP BEFORE It creates an InfectIon. What medIcIne may I ask? Some cause IlIght>retrogradeIlIght> IlIght>ejaculatIonIlIght>, where your stuff goes In your bladder Instead out of your penIs. Flomax does thIs especIally..
Avatar f tn PossIble complIcatIons for a TURP Include bladder neck contracture (a scar where the bladder meets the prostate), IlIght>retrogradeIlIght> ejacuatIon (IlIght>ejaculatIonIlIght> Into the bladder), AND worsenIng of hIs IncontInence. SurgIcal alternatIves to TURP Include laser therapy for removIng prostatIc tIssue.
Avatar n tn What Is the rIsk of IlIght>retrogradeIlIght> IlIght>ejaculatIonIlIght> due to TUIP? Is there surgIcal ways to perform a TUIP to mInImIze the rIsk? Does the resultIng sensatIon feel the same as the Flomax sIde effect?
Avatar m tn DrIppIng ejaculatIon could also be due to IlIght>flomaxIlIght> sIde effects. HOWever It could also be due to IlIght>retrogradeIlIght> IlIght>ejaculatIonIlIght>. ThIs CAN be a complIcatIon of dIabetes. “DIagnosIs Is usually by way of a urInalysIs performed on a urIne specImen that Is obtaIned shortly after ejaculatIon. In cases of retrograde ejaculatIon, the specImen wIll contaIn an abnormal level of sperm.” Refer: http://en.wIkIpedIa.org/wIkI/Retrograde_ejaculatIon HOWever I am not sure when your urIne analysIs was done.
Avatar n tn Hello SIr, There are these types of devIces whIch are used to facIlItate ejaculatIon In selected patIents wIth spInal cord InjurIes, where thIs devIce Is used to locally stImulate the nerves AND cause ejaculatIon.
Avatar m tn There are several reasons for orgasm wIthout IlIght>ejaculatIonIlIght>, the most common (“IlIght>retrogradeIlIght> IlIght>ejaculatIonIlIght>”) beIng that the prostate sphIncter Is closed, so semen doesn’t exIt the body. DurIng ejaculatIon, the Internal sphIncter, a muscle located between the prostate AND the bladder, closes tIghtly, preventIng a man from ejaculatIng AND urInatIng at the same tIme. If thIs muscle relaxes, It CAN force some of the ejaculate backwards Into the bladder, rather than out of the urethra.
Avatar n tn On a dIfferent note, the other day I masturbated AND almost nothIng came out. The urologIst told me that the IlIght>flomaxIlIght> causes IlIght>retrogradeIlIght> IlIght>ejaculatIonIlIght>, but thIs was In the mornIng after my flomax has usually worn off (thIs was at a tIme of day when I HAVE masturbated AND ejaculated BEFORE, but no more than a lIttle drIbble oozed out. Usually when the flomax Is In effect, absolutely nothIng comes out).
Avatar n tn It Is because of the sIde effects after TURP lIke IlIght>retrogradeIlIght> IlIght>ejaculatIonIlIght>, blood In urIne etc. Also patIents who do not wIsh to get surgery or who HAVE contraIndIcatIons for surgery, who want temporary relIef from symptoms or ones who are havIng recurrent prostatIc hyperplasIa CAN opt for medIcal mangement. Alpha blockers relax the muscles In the prostate AND bladder neck, easIng the flow of urIne In about 70% of men wIth BPH. DoxazosIn AND terazosIn both CAN lower the blood pressure.
Avatar n tn What happened to your sperm Is called IlIght>RetrogradeIlIght> IlIght>EjaculatIonIlIght>. The semInal fluId passes from the posterIor part of the urethra AND Into the bladder. I would defInItely see a urologIst, QUIT drInkIng as much, AND get tested for dIabetes. Hope thIs helps.
Avatar n tn 1) It Is possIble that IlIght>retrogradeIlIght> IlIght>ejaculatIonIlIght> Is occurIng as a sIde effect of the IlIght>FlomaxIlIght>. Try stoppIng It AND see If the condItIon Improves. 2) AgaIn, you may want to consIder the possIbIlIty of retrograde ejaculatIon. ThIs occurs when the ejaculate goes Into the bladder Instead of through the urethra. ThIs normally occurs due to dIabetes or vIa surgery. 3) It Is possIble that It may caused by the procedure, but I would dIscuss thIs wIth your urologIst.
Avatar n tn If you are obstructed, Flomax Is a good drug to help relax the prostate AND Increase flow. One of the sIde-effects of IlIght>FlomaxIlIght> Is IlIght>retrogradeIlIght> IlIght>ejaculatIonIlIght> whIch It sounds lIke you HAVE experIenced. Due to the extreme relaxatIon of the bladder neck, the semen Is forced Into the bladder AND not antegrade out the penIs whIch Is the norm. You may notIce a thIck frothy substance In your urIne, thIs Is your semen.
Avatar n tn Cardura, HytrIn, Flomax , are belIeved to relax smooth muscles In the prostate AND theatrIcally could allow for IlIght>retrogradeIlIght> IlIght>ejaculatIonIlIght>. IlIght>RetrogradeIlIght> IlIght>ejaculatIonIlIght> Is when the ejaculate goes Into the bladder Instead of comIng out the tIp of the penIs. The mechanIsm of actIon of Saw Palmetto SP Is unknown, so I am not In a posItIon to comment If retrograde ejaculatIon Is a possIble cause of your symptoms or not.
