Erectile Dysfunction (ED)

Erection without ejaculation

04/04/2008

Question:

My husband and I have an excellent sex life. He is 40 years old, but the last times he had erections, he couldn`t have ejaculation. He is very healthy, no cholesterol, diabetes or has had any medication. How can we solve this problem? Which specialist do we have to consult?

Answer:

This could be some type of emotional problem, a physical problem, or both. I would start with a check up with his primary care doctor to make sure he has no urinary infections, no diabetes, and no prostatitis. In addition, you both may need to see a sex therapist, if there is no physical cause detected.
