Ejaculation and Urinary Problems

Over the last year and a half I have had problems with frequent urination, sometimes 15 to 20 times per day. My primary doctor, and the urologist that he referred me to have had me tested, did not find anything wrong with me. I had two bladder ultrasounds, a digital prostate exam and a urine culture and none of these tests show a problem.

I've made the best of it for the last year and a half until this past April 6th, when an additional problem cropped up. It's normal for a man to feel the urge to urinate after a climax, but in April after masturbating I wasn't able to completely void. I kept on feeling like I still had to go. It was a horrible feeling. Not only was I urinating frequently, now I was feeling constantly having the urge to go even after voiding. This happened right after I masturbated. I felt like this for about 10 days and then the feeling of always having the urge faded away, although I still was going to the restroom frequently. I had a follow up appointment with the urologist this last Friday, April 28th, and the doctor wanted me to take medication to see if this would alleviate the symptoms. I told him I was more concerned about the fact that masturbating, or more specifically ejaculating and what had happened previously after I did it. He told me
that it was impossible that ejaculating could be causing my problem and he told me not to worry about it. I had been feeling the urge, so when I came home from the doctor I masturbated again, and the exact same thing happened. Since then I have been feeling like I did on April 6th, the feeling of always needing to void, along with the frequent urination, but even when I do I still feel like I haven't gone. It's the most miserable feeling.

On top of this, while masturbating, I had the urge to void three times before climax and when I finally did climax it was nothing like would normally happen if a person had not masturbated for three weeks. Although I was fully erect, the ejactulation was weak, and very unfullfilling. It felt like 1/2 an orgasm. It didn't feel the way an orgasm is supposed to.
As upsetting as this is, what I'm most concerned about is that now I am back to where I was on April 6th, feeling like my bladder is full and I have to go to the restroom constantly and urinating frequently.

I have looked everywhere for information on what this could be but to no avail. None of my doctors believes that ejaculation is tied to the problem, but I know my body and I know what I'm feeling and experiencing. I am so miserable.

Thank you for your assistance in this matter.

  • That sounds like urethral strictures - an obstruction in the tube, or a narrowing. Did he insert a catheter or do something to check? If he did not, get another urologist. It's quite common and can get worse (been there). See this thread:http://forums.wrongdiagnosis.com/showthread.php?p=39947#post39947

  • Curly, thank you for your reply. I went and researched urethral strictures, but I don't have any of the symptoms. I go to the restroom all the time and have no problem going. I could probably go every ten minutes, but I hold it. It seems that if I had urethral strictures I would have the opposite problem, don't you think? I know I have a problem, but I don't know what it is and it is so unbelieveably frustrating. Until I figure it out, I just have to refrain from sexual activity. If what I'm feeling gets any worse, I think I would go mad.That sounds like urethral strictures - an obstruction in the tube, or a narrowing. Did he insert a catheter or do something to check?

  • Might be "Irritable Bladder: a condition of the bladder marked by increased frequency of contraction with associated desire to urinate." Eliminate bread, caffeine, spices (especially curry), alcohol, chocolate, tomatoes, carbonated drinks, and highly acidic foods such as citrus fruits and juices. Eliminate ALL bread, including pizza bases etc, until you are well. Here in ZA we get a brilliant homeopathic med by Dr A. Vogel of Switzerland called Bladder Irritation Formula. It contains Berberis vulgaris D3, Chimaphila umbellate D2, Helleboris niger D3, Lamium album D1, Lespedeza capitata D3, Pareira brava D2, Solidago virgaurea D1, Viola tricolour D3. Ask at alternative health shops. Also first thing every morning you should take a urinary alkalinizer. We get a good one over here called Citro-Soda, containing sodium bicarbonate, tartaric acid, citric acid and sodium citrate. It's safe over the long term. Only beware, taking more than indicated can make one feel awful. There is probably something systemic underlying the condition. Before taking the doctor's stupid meds, try Reiki and/or NAET. Visit www.naet.com to locate a therapist in your area. A traditional Chinese doctor is another great idea, see www.acufinder.com to locate one. I know exactly how it feels. :eek:
