Avatar n tn Hello, Retrograde ejaculation occurs when semen, which would normally be ejaculated via the urethra, is redirected to the urinary bladderIt may be due to operations of the prostate, autonomic nervous system disorders,diabetes,certain drugs like tamsulosin,antidepressants and antipsychotic medications and neuropathy of the bladder sphincter. Diagnosis is usually by way of a urinalysis performed on a urine specimen that is obtained shortly after ejaculation.
Avatar n tn I was diagnosed with BHP and put on Tamsulosin and now I have retrograde ejaculation and I would like to know if I stop the Tamsulosin with the RE go away?
Avatar m tn Only after doing a research on the internet, I see that is Retrograde Ejeculation and tamsulosin is known to cause this. I have taken 3 of them so far of 0.4 mg. Considering I never had any long term issue, always had health semen, all the reports are normal, surely this is only a side effect of Flomax? Please please advise, I am really worried! Thank you!
Avatar m tn [5] Alpha-blockers relax smooth muscle in the prostate and the bladder neck, and decrease the degree of blockage of urine flow. Alpha-blockers may cause ejaculation back into the bladder (retrograde ejaculation). The 5α-reductase inhibitors (finasteride and dutasteride) are another treatment option. This medication inhibits 5a-reductase, which in turn inhibits production of DHT, a hormone responsible for enlarging the prostate.
Avatar m tn my understanding is many of these diminish over the weeks/months but that some of the 'big hitters' don't diminish e.g. retrograde ejaculation and risk of erections that remain after 4+ hours, erections at unwanted times, loss of sex drive etc.
Avatar n tn i have had blood clots in the ejaculation during sex and a lot bigger and more in the urine after i finished intercourse. i am a bit worried honestly. it never happend when i masterbate! wierd! only from bj's and sex! if anyone can help me please do!.
Avatar m tn My boyfriend had prostate surgery in 96 and has had retrograde ejaculation since. He still experiences orgasm, just without the ejaculation. And let me clarify...sometimes there is ejaculation - sometimes a normal amount, sometimes just a little but most of the time none. His trouble with the retrograde ejaculation s the mental part of feeling like he isn't completing.....for me. I keep telling him, it's not a problem for me...less mess! lol. But, I also understand....
Avatar m tn Dynapres (Tamsulosin) can cause retrograde ejaculation, which what you likely have. It should disappear as the drug leaves your system.
Avatar m tn Abnormal ejaculation includes ejaculation failure, ejaculation disorder, retrograde ejaculation, and ejaculation decrease. You can consult your doctor and talk to him regarding decreasing the dose of Uromax or change to 5-alpha reductase inhibitors like Finasetride (Proscar) which can be used for BPH. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided.
Avatar m tn Abnormal ejaculation which can be ejaculation failure, ejaculation disorder, retrograde ejaculation, and ejaculation decrease are side effects of Tamsulosin which can be found in 8%of the patients. You can talk to your doctor regarding this medicine. Sometimes reducing the dose of a medication or switching medications may help. Hope that this information helps and hope that you will get better soon. Wishing you good health.
Avatar m tn Anyway, I have tried Epsom Salt baths and UrinoZinc, as I did not like Tamsulosin at all. It made my breathing labored, and I don't like the idea of Retrograde Ejaculation. I have had painful external orgasms and urination, and although my enlargement is not that bad-the Urologist told me it was .5 and had others at 1 and 1.5-I am still suffering quite a bit with pain and discomfort. Swimming helps a bit, and I am lucky enough not be going every half hour or hour.
Avatar m tn Sorry you're havin to deal with this and the worst part is not knowing why. I looked this up and this is what I found. Hope it helps!
Avatar m tn Hello, Every drug has its own side effects and Flomax (tamsulosin) is no exception. However it has been reported that treatment with FLOMAX capsules for up to 12 months had no significant effect on prostate-specific antigen (PSA) and does not effect prostate. It effect the vision and may cause blurred vision but that is found in only 0.2- 2% of the patients.
Avatar m tn huge PVR and potential complications. No apparent effect on the PVR or large doses of tamsulosin (2x0.4mg) and prostate too small for finasteride/dutasteride. • Surgery went very well. Surgeon very well experimented and cautious (2000+ interventions) • So far one complication: had to be re-catheterized the very same day they removed the 3 ways surgery cath as I could not urinate at all. • 19 days after, I am drinking a lot (2-3l fluids), taking normal dose of tamsulosin in the evening (0.
Avatar m tn Normally, the sphincter of the bladder contracts and the ejaculate goes to the urethra. But in retrograde ejaculation the sphincter does not function properly. Once you stop using this drug it’s effect on the sphincter also fades off. I would suggest that you visit your urologist and discuss the above mentioned possibility and follow his advise. Best.
Avatar n tn I was told a trans-urethral incision would eliminate (pardon the pun) this problem. However, there is a 20% chance of developing a retrograde ejaculation associated with this procedure. This is a chance I can't afford to take. I plan to have more children. Also, my wife said that a dry ejaculation does not sound like much fun. I agree. Any advice/insights provided will be greatly appreciated.
Avatar m tn after 2 days this tablet started giving problem with ejaculation. i went to urologist and he told it is called as Retrograde Ejaculation and not to worry. If you think it is a problem stop taking the tablets. So, i stopped taking tablets. Now everything is fine except my low back. I still feel pain at the edge of one or two ribs on left side and right side. Also the ribs beside spinal cord on back of left side pains. This pain is only when i press those ribs.
