Men who have a very low ejaculate volume or no ejaculate may suffer from a condition known as retrograde ejaculation where the semen is pushed backwards into the bladder.
Retrograde ejaculation is often associated with other conditions such as diabetes, bladder or prostate surgery, local nerve damage, medications to treat high blood pressure etc.
A simple test to look for sperm in a post orgasmic urine sample can determine whether you have retrograde ejaculation.
- Comprehensive semen analysis
- Genetic screening
- Oxidative stress levels in semen (ROS test)
