Ejaculatory disorders

At Fertility Solutions we completely understand that ejaculatory disorders can be a distressing problem for men and you may feel embarrassed to discuss this issue with anyone.

What is an ejaculatory disorder

Ejaculation is the release of semen from the penis after sexual climax.

Waves of muscle contractions transport your sperm, with a small amount of fluid (semen), from the testes through to the vas deferens. The seminal vesicles and prostate gland add extra fluid to protect the sperm. This semen then travels along the urethra to the tip of the penis where it is then ejaculated at the time of sexual climax.

There are different types of ejaculatory disorders which affect men in different ways but the result being that ejaculation does not happen effectively.

What can we do
  • At Fertility Solutions our fertility experts can help you manage and treat your ejaculatory disorder to transform your life. We know it can be hard to talk about this topic with anyone which is why we are here to help.
  • There are some reasons why men experience ejaculatory disorders issues, psychological problems affect about 20% of men. Physiological factors such as medical conditions or nerve damage account for 1 in 3 ejaculatory disorders.

Traditionally, the response to a couple facing fertility problems has been to focus on the woman with little evaluation of the male partner.

Often, assessing the couple as a whole and working to correct abnormal tests will result in drastic improvements in fertility and therefore likelihood of a successful pregnancy.


What are the types of ejaculatory disorder

There are several types of ejaculation disorders which affect men in different ways including:

Retrograde ejaculation

Retrograde ejaculation is where the muscle at the opening of the bladder (which usually stops semen from entering the bladder during orgasm) does not close normally allowing semen flows back into the bladder. Therefore, little or no semen is discharged from the penis during ejaculation, and the first urination after sex looks cloudy as the semen mixes into the urine. Retrograde ejaculation is uncommon and requires diagnosis.

There are many causes of retrograde ejaculation including medical conditions and following surgery. Most men who have retrograde ejaculation do not require treatment. However, it is difficult for men with retrograde ejaculation to have a baby naturally - this is where we come in.

Delayed ejaculation

Delayed ejaculation and anorgasmia is a type of sexual dysfunction in which a person cannot achieve orgasm despite adequate stimulation or it can take much longer than desired. The term anejaculation describes when a man does not ejaculate after orgasm. It is important to understand that orgasms and ejaculation are often used interchangeably, but some men can experience orgasm even though they don’t ejaculate.

There are many reasons why men will suffer from a delayed ejaculation disorder and we will help you find the reason. While delayed ejaculation can be caused by relationship difficulties, persistent anorgasmia, a man with no medical cause is very uncommon.
