What is retrograde ejaculation?

ANSWER

Retrograde ejaculation is common in males with diabetes who have diabetic neuropathy (nerve damage). This is because of problems with the nerves in the bladder and the bladder neck that let the ejaculate flow backward and into the bladder. In other men, retrograde ejaculation happens after operations on the bladder neck or prostate, or after certain belly operations. Certain medications, particularly those used to treat mood disorders, may cause problems with ejaculation. This generally doesn't require treatment unless it impairs fertility.
