Can retrograde ejaculation be cured?
Up to 40 per cent of men will return to normal ejaculation when they are treated with medication, although treatment isn’t always necessary. If you are trying to have a baby, treatment can make it easier to conceive. The way your retrograde ejaculation is treated will depend on what’s causing it.
If your doctor thinks that it could be a side effect of a medicine you’re taking, they should be able to change you to another type of medication to see whether that helps.
If it’s likely that the condition is related to a problem with the nerves or muscles of your bladder, there are drugs that can help to improve the muscle tone at the entrance to the bladder.
It can be harder or even impossible to treat retrograde ejaculation if it has been caused by surgical damage. If this applies to you, speak to a fertility doctor about ways that they can help with assisted fertility techniques. It’s possible in some cases to take sperm from your urine and use it in IVF or a similar procedure.
