During male orgasm, sperm is released from each testicle, and travels along the tube called the vas deferens to the prostate where it mixes with semen. The muscle at the opening of the bladder tightens to stop the semen from entering the bladder as it passes into the tube inside the penis (urethra). This is the same muscle that keeps the urine in the bladder until urination. When these muscles don’t tighten, the semen enters the bladder instead of travelling through the penis during orgasm. You will still reach climax, but will ejaculate little or no semen. This is called a dry orgasm.
Aside from retrograde ejaculation, dry orgasm can also be caused by other conditions, including:

  • surgical removal of the prostate

  • surgical removal of the bladder

  • radiation therapy to treat cancer in the pelvic area

Your urine may be cloudy after orgasm, due to the presence of semen.
If the retrograde ejaculation is due to nerve damage, the following medications may be effective:

  • Imipramine – a tricyclic antidepressant.

  • Chlorpheniramine and brompheniramine – antihistamines

  • Ephedrine, pseudoephedrine and phenylephrine – used in some decongestant medications

Retrograde ejaculation can lead to an inability to get your partner pregnant, as well as less pleasurable orgasm.
