I have had a problem of erectile dysfunction and low libido

This answer was rated:

I have had a problem of erectile dysfunction and low libido for twenty years. It began with the treatment of chronic fatigue (1999-2004) using seroxat. Viagr failed but injections of fenitoina and prostaglandina cured erectile dysfunction. (This was in Italy and I know only the Italian names). I was still, however incapable of orgasm and was told (still in Italy that nothing could be done unless I got my weight down. I have lost a very great deal of weight but am now seemingly stuck at about 92 kg (but will get there). A British GP with whom I discussed this today could not understand this advice. Please comment

Hello...I understand your concern and I am sorry for your symptoms.
From what you say I feel that - what you are experiencing is retrograde ejaculation.
Retrograde ejaculation occurs when semen enters the bladder instead of emerging through the penis during orgasm. Although you still reach sexual climax, you might ejaculate very little or no semen. This is sometimes called a dry orgasm.
Retrograde ejaculation isn't harmful, but it can cause male infertility. Treatment for retrograde ejaculation is generally only needed to restore fertility. Retrograde ejaculation doesn't affect your ability to get an erection or have an orgasm — but when you climax, semen goes into your bladder instead of coming out of your penis.
There are medications for RE.
Like - Imipramine, Midodrine, Chlorpheniramine, Brompheniramine, Ephedrine, Pseudoephedrine, Phenylephrine.
These medications help keep the bladder neck muscle closed during ejaculation. While they're effective treatment for retrograde ejaculation, medications can cause side effects or adverse reactions with other medications. Certain medications used to treat retrograde ejaculation can increase your blood pressure and heart rate, which can be dangerous if you have high blood pressure or heart disease.
I suggest you discuss with your physician regarding these please.I sincerely ***** ***** I have helped you, and that I have earned my 5 star rating today!
