Ejaculation commonly occurs with orgasm – although they are two separate events: ejaculation is the act; orgasm is the feeling.
· Ejaculation may be forward or backward.
· Forward is necessary for pregnancy.
· Retrograde – ie. backwards into the bladder – is common after prostatectomy.
· Retarded is when the man is unable to ejaculate inside his partner – usually a symptom of a psychological problem, although there could be a congenital absence of ejaculatory ducts. In which case, a check should be made by a qualified medical practitioner to establish whether or not the ejaculatory ducts are absent.
