Unable to ejaculate after catheter

I was given a quick diagnosis of prostititis 3 months ago, never had any symptoms other than uranary tract infection pain and followed by an inability to urinate but even during all this i had no problem sexualy until i had a catheter put in to make me urinate then removed after this i not since been able to achive a full erection or ejaculate the doctor has even tried cialis and viagra with little to no results,
doctor says im crazy and that it had absolutley nothing to do with the catheter but i know my body and that was definatly the trigger point in my life, its been 2 months since the uti pain has left and when i had it, it only lasted 3 days,
im 33 years old. any help appreciated, sinking into a pretty bad depression due to this. thanks

Is your doctor a urologist? If not, you may want to see one. Perhaps the catheter caused some structural damage or something. However, I don't think this is a normal reaction to a catheter. Be open to the possibility that it was something else, but there is defiantly something wrong.

Good luck. I hope this is something that can be fixed easily.

Get a second opinion. Catheters are very safe but I know for a fact you wouldn't be the first person to have ED from a catheter.

Also accept that sexual function changes through your life. Just because something is different doesn't mean that something is wrong or even that something wrong is medical in nature. Keep and open mind.

The orgasm and then no ejaculate is a sign of retrograde ejaculation, which is when the ejaculate refluxes back up in to the bladder and then is dispersed from the body in your urine. Have you noticed any semen when you urinate?--Nurse

I had this happen to me after gallbladder surgery. The anesthesia knocked my body out to the point that my kidneys or bladder weren't working so the bladder filled up with urine but I had no urge to urinate. So the nurse put in a catheter to drain the urine. But afterwards I could not ejaculate "out". It was a strange feeling...and not a good one...It took a bit over two weeks to get better. Is this normal? Could anything have been done differently to prevent this or anything done afterwards to make it get better quicker? Thanks.

I have the same problem. I had surgery back in April to remove my colon and then I ended up having to have a catheter from April til November of last year. Since I have not been able to achieve a full erection or ejaculate. Is there something that can be done to get better. I never had any problems like this before.

Catheter causes ED
58 yrs old. had catheter during hernia surgery, cramps a few days after, better urine stream, but some retrograde ejaculations. Some feel OK, some not good. Had Partial ED which worsened through the process, making it lifeless and impossible at times. Sometimes normal ejaculations, but not so often.Viagra and cialis work, but only use occasionally, not for most releases. Naturopath doctor gave me herbal ginseng potion mixture with good results, firmer more frequent erections, but not full hardness yet.
The 'blind passage' may have been your seminal vessel, that's why the fluid seemed absent, and this may facilitate retrograde ejaculations. Painful catheterization causes fearful pain memory flashbacks later during sex, causing loss of erection. Problem slowly got better over months, and years, you slowly get back to near normal.

retrograde ejaculation
I too have retrograde ejaculation. I was prescribed a heavy narcotic for shoulder pain with directions to take as needed. Needless to say that I did just that and I had a reaction that caused sever urinary retention that nearly killed me. They used a catheter to drain about a liter of urine from me. I was placed on a bladder bag for a month and had o use a catheter for months later until my bladder started to function somewhat normally. Since then I have had retrograde ejaculation. My doctor says its no big deal but he's not the one with the problem. Now he wants to do prostate surgery as I have now had recurring UTI's. I don't have ED but I do take viagra for fun. It seems that every time I go to the Dr to get better I have a new problem. I am beginning to distrust them all. I think I am going to leave my fate to nature.

I understand what the above gentleman has stated.
I used to have a quite a lot of ejaculate.
Just a couple of years ago I was diagnosed with a an enlarged but moderate prostrate after not being able to urinate or defecate. I had a litre of urine in my bladder. They relieved same by inserting a catheter which was excruciating particularly when the clinician appeared to hit 'something' then pressed it deep down and harder to overcome the 'protrusion' which caused blood to come from my bladder. Immediately subsequent to which I was unable to ejaculate moreover when a camera was inserted again into my bladder too. When he turned same whilst inside my bladder I was also in great pain.
I believe that this insertion caused me to have retrograde ejaculation; at first no ejaculate and then just a little. This now along with some premature ejaculation and ED.
Yes I have long term diabetes Type two and was given subsequently[after the insertion of a catheter] Tamsulosin , which is of course a beta blocker and also would cause retrograde ejaculation. I only however took them for a short time as they appeared to give me severe headaches!
I now only have a little ejaculate, premature ejaculation and additionally ED!
Has anyone else taken Tamsulosin.. .

Dry or Clear Orgasm after botched Catheter Insertion
I have this as well. some are normal, and some are dry, then painful. nurses tried forcing a too-large catheter down when my prostate was swollen a week after back surgery. now I feel the urge to urinate when aroused, and have the ejaculation issue about half the time. i also get clear semen as well. Hospital is investigating.
has this gotten better for anyone?
(Stay away from a certain hospital in Seattle with initials VM)
