Title: ejaculation volume/force and ED
Post by: fixme on October 26, 2013, 05:53:06 am
One of the things I noticed that occurred along with me ED is that i stopped "shooting" ejaculate. Now it just drips out.  Additionally, the volume of ejaculation is much less (about 50-75% less). 

Did anyone else experience the same thing along with weak erections?

A couple of comments:

1.  This just occurs with aging.  Look at this study:

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/17430422
Andrologia. 2007 Apr;39(2):45-50.
"Relationship between age and semen parameters in men with normal sperm concentration: analysis of 6022 semen samples"

"A peak semen volume of 3.51 +/- 1.76 ml(-1) was observed at age >or=30 to <35 years and a lowest volume of 2.21 +/- 1.23 ml(-1) was observed at age >or=55 years (P<0.05)...A statistically significant and inverse relationship was observed between semen volume, sperm quality and patient age, in spite of prolonged sexual abstinence duration. Top sperm parameters were observed at age >or=30 to <35 years, while the most significant reduction in sperm parameters occurred after the age of 55 years."

2.  If you really have a big drop off, it can be a sign of retrograde ejaculation (and/or medications):

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2792416/
"Steps in the investigation and management of low semen volume in the infertile man"

"With the internal spincter closed tightly, a series of involuntary rhythmic contractions of the periurethal muscles occurs, expelling the ejaculate. The closed bladder neck prevents retrograde ejaculation.6 As will be discussed, any interruption of the structural or functional aspects of this process can affect the ejaculatory volume...Retrograde ejaculation refers to the partial or complete flow of ejaculate into the bladder, rather than an antegrade ejaculation where semen is propelled out the urethra. This can occur due to either structural or functional disruption of the ejaculation process. Retrograde ejaculation can be partial, with some antegrade component, or complete (see below)"

One last thing:

I have a page which you may or not know about that discusses how to increase your semen volumne naturally:

http://www.peaktestosterone.com/Semen_Volume

However, it probably won't help a lot if you have retrograde ejaculation obviously.

I discuss the issue of retrograde ejaculation here:
