Conditions: Anejaculation

Treating Anejaculation

If vibrator therapy fails, electroejaculation can be performed. This involves the direct electrical stimulation of the nerves and is carried out under general anesthesia.

Drug treatment for anejaculation has shown low success rates compared to vibrator stimulation and electroejaculation stimulation and therefore is not a preferred treatment option.

If there is a block due to infection, this can sometimes be cleared by surgery and sexual function can be regained.

If the above measures are not successful and fertility is the main concern, it is possible for a trained physician to extract sperm from the testicles and in vitro fertilization (IVF) (egg-sperm fertilization in a test tube and then inserted into uterus of mother) or single sperm injection can be attempted.

What is electroejaculation?

Electroejaculation is the use of electrical stimulation to cause ejaculation. This method stimulates ejaculatory nerves by inserting a lubricated probe, called an electroejaculator, into the rectum and applying electrical stimulations. General anesthesia is usually required, except in some cases of complete spinal cord injury.
