Expert Q & A Answers About retrograde ejaculation

I have diabetes...what is retrograde ejaculation and is it curable? Does it mean I’m sterile?

I am a 32-year-old male, and I have diabetes and use insulin. Over the past five years, I’ve noticed that the amount of semen I produce has drastically decreased. I have read in a medical encyclopedia that men with diabetes often suffer from "retrograde ejaculation." Is this the cause? Does it mean I'm sterile?

How do I have satisfying orgasms after prostate surgery?

Since I had TURP surgery, my ejaculate goes into the bladder and is discharged with urine. I am homosexual, and now I don’t have the same satisfaction from orgasm that I had before. I do climax, but I find myself somewhat frustrated each time. Is there any way to improve this?

Is there a difference between orgasm and ejaculation?

It is possible for a man to ejaculate without having an orgasm, and vice versa? The terms "orgasm" and "ejaculation" seem to be used interchangeably, which is confusing to me. Do both words mean the same thing?

I have a spinal chord injury and I’m slow to ejaculate...is there a toy that could help?

I am an incomplete C5-6 quad. I’m 26, male and I’ve been injured for nine years. I have no problem getting or maintaining an erection (with little or no stimulation), but my ejaculations take too long. When I stimulate the base above the testes, I get quicker results, though…so I’m wondering if there’s a toy that stimulates just this area?
