“So why is there sperm in urine? It may be because of something called retrograde ejaculation- which means you are ejaculating backwards into the bladder instead of straight outside the body. What do I mean by ejaculating backward into the bladder?”
“How does this happen? Ideally, during orgasm, sperm from the testicles in the scrotum get mixed with other fluids from the prostate and other glands and then get expelled through the urethra (the pipe at the under part of the erect penis). This is the normal ejaculation.”

“But in people with Spermaturia (sperm in the urine), what happens is that during the journey of the semen, it goes straight into the bladder rather than bypass it. This then later come out as sperm in the urine. It’s a concept called Retrograde Ejaculation in clinical medicine.”
“During sex, when a man reaches orgasm, sperm comes from the testicles and moves through a tube called the vas deferens and then gets mixed with fluids from the prostate, and IDEALLY the muscles at bladder neck tighten so that the semen bypasses the bladder, and comes out as cum.”
“Now in a person with Retrograde Ejaculation- which in simple terms we can call “ejaculating backwards” instead of ejaculating out, the man notices that he achieves the feeling of orgasm, but there is NO semen/cum in the condom or outside anywhere. It all went into his bladder.”
“Such people also notice that when they masturbate, they feel the orgasm but nothing comes out. This is not normal at all. This is a very crucial subject because IF a man’s semen/cum never comes out, that man can NOT have a child. Or better still the chances are VERY VERY LOW.”
” So what causes Retrograde Ejaculation- It can be because of Prostate Surgery- in people with big prostate or prostate cancer. A problem with the nerves controlling the neck of the bladder making it weak so semen/cum during orgasm just goes into bladder, rather than come out.”
“Diabetes can also weaken the nerves and cause a man to have reverse backward ejaculation of semen/cum into his bladder rather than outside. Some medications used to treat mental illnesses like depression and psychosis can also cause it.”
“The treatment for Retrograde Ejaculation depends on the cause: If it is a side effect of a medicine, alternatives can be tried. If it is due to diabetes, more effective treatment of the diabetes can help. Sometimes, doctors consider surgery as well in this condition.”
“Remember, the main thing as a man, IF you notice that you have sex or masturbate, and you achieve the feeling of orgasm and NO semen/cum comes out, GO STRAIGHT TO SEE A DOCTOR. That’s a bad sign. Especially if you have never had a child before. It may mean you will never have.”
“This is NO jokes at all. Do NOT stay home drinking herbs or thinking you are “lucky” that when you have sex with women, “nothing comes out”. It will be a problem when you get married or later want children as a man. The earlier you speak up, the better. So that it gets treated.”
