Conditions: Anejaculation

Treating Anejaculation

There are several treatment options for men with anejaculation; the main goal of which is to retrieve sperm for artificial insemination.

Situational anejaculation can often be prevented or treated by simple methods that make the man feel more comfortable (such as the clinic being quiet with no waiting lines, or the man collecting a semen sample at home). If situational anejaculation is due to psychological causes it can often be treated by simple measures such as psychological or sexual counseling. You should talk to your doctor about what is right for you.

When the cause of anejaculation is due to a physical problem then you will have to consult with your doctor to find out exactly what is happening and what action can be taken. Treatment can be as easy as changing to a different type of medication after consultation with your doctor. You may want to reduce or stop drinking or taking other non-prescription drugs.

For other physical causes of anejaculation, treatment is the use of a vibrator (called penile vibratory stimulation). With this treatment, vibrations travel along the sensory nerves to the spinal cord to cause ejaculation. A specially designed vibrator applies vibrations to the tip of the penis and the immediate surrounding area. Vibrator stimulation results in ejaculation in about 60% of men. In men with spinal cord injuries, depending on the level of injury, this technique may not work.
