do you have bad anxiety symptoms? bad anxiety can kill erections and cause poor sexual performance

how long have you had type 1 diabetes?

type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disorder where your body makes antibodies which can attack your pancreas

diabetes over time can affect your nerves and sexual function as well and could affect your prostate and how much semen fluid you are making.

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
I've been diabetic 20yrs and no semen fluid.
Expert:  Dr. David replied 1 month ago.

I see

most of your seminal fluid is produced in your prostate gland.

you could have a temporary blockage of your prostate gland or inflammation of your prostate gland affecting fluid production.

usually these issues resolve themselves over time as your body can heal mild infections and inflammation issues

you can always see a urology doctor or your GP to check on your prostate gland as well

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
How would I go about seeing a urology doctor.
Expert:  Dr. David replied 1 month ago.

in the UK, your GP doctor has to refer you to see a urology doctor specialist.
