    Retrograde Ejaculation

    This is hard to believe, Sudefed for low ejaculation?

    Retrograde Ejaculation
    Retrograde ejaculation is associated with a diminished volume or complete lack of seminal emission, and is often the first symptom of diabetes mellitus. The diagnosis may be confirmed by microscopic examination of a posteiaculation urine specimen. Pseudoephedrine (Sudafed) 120 mg 3 times daily will convert approximately 25% of men to antegrade ejaculation. Ejaculation with a full bladder is sometimes helpful. A full bladder stimulates increased a-adrenergic activity at the bladder neck. If these measures fail, the urine may be alkalinzed and the sperm from the postejaculate urine retrieved, processed, and used for IUI or IVF with ICSI.

    yes. the sympathetic nervous system is responsible for the ejaculation and parasympathetic for the erection. sudafed would stimulate the sympathetic nervous system and help in ejaculation like the guy said.

    Here is some more good stuff. I'm doing some drill down on clomid and finding all of this. Dr. Evil, why don't you just write a book so we can get it all in one place?

    Item C indicates that IM Testosterone may be an effective birth control.

    MEDICAL TREATMENT


    1. Empiric therapy.

    About 40% of infertile males fall into this category of unexplained infertility.

    A. Clomiphene citrate.

    This is a synthetic nonsteroidal anti-estrogen which increases FSH and LH through blocking feedback inhibition on the pituitary. Clomiphene may be given 12.5 to 50 mg per day and may be given continuously or on a 25-day cycle with a 5-day rest period each month.

    Controversy still exists as to whether this medication is helpful or not. It is certainly not helpful in those with elevated baseline serum FSH levels, severely diminished sperm counts or those with no sperm. In addition, a small percentage of men will actually experience a decline in sperm density and motility while taking this medication.

    B. Androgen therapy.

    In general, several large prospective randomized placebo-controlled studies have not shown any significant beneficial effect from the use of oral testosterone-type medications.

    C. Testosterone rebound therapy.

    This form of treatment may also result in the opposite effect with persistently decreased sperm numbers. However, this treatment may have a place in those with very low sperm counts (less than .1 million per cc) and consists of administering I.M. testosterone 250 mg every 1-2 weeks until no sperm is identified in the ejaculate. This may take about 5 months. At this time, the testosterone administration is stopped while awaiting the testosterone rebound and sperm production, which can take about 3-6 months from the time the testosterone injections are stopped.

    D. Gonadotropins.

    FSH treatment in oligospermic men who have had previous IVF fertilization failure may result in an improvement of sperm function without obvious change in numbers.

    E. Prostaglandin inhibitors.

    Prostaglandin inhibitors, such as Indomethacin, may increase sperm density and motility in sub-fertile men with elevated seminal levels of prostaglandins.

    F. Antioxidants.

    Certain antioxidants such as glutathione, when administered to oligospermic sub-fertile males, may improve sperm motility and morphology.

    G. Others.

    The validity of the use of various vitamins such as C and E and the Chinese herbal medicine (TJ-7) have been touted for many years in the treatment of sub-fertility in men, but their usefulness has not been established. Others have suggested dietary supplements using carnitine, as in Proxeed. However, these vitamins and supplements are inexpensive and relatively innocuous.

    My, the nifty things you find discussed here . . . Anyway, it should be no harder to believe than the concept of a drug used to induce ovulation in women (Clomid) helping to maintain healthy nuts at the end of a cycle..

    One warning, though: If you are diabetic or prone to diabetes (through bulking or through family history), pseudoephedrine (Sudafed) can zonk your glucose into high gear.

    Come on. High testosterone = lots of sex and little ejaculation.
