Retrograde Ejaculation Evaluation

In some situations such as spinal cord injuries, some drugs consumption or after surgery, ejaculation flows into the bladder and not the penile urethra.

In these cases, called retrograde ejaculation, there are possibilities to extract sperm from the bladder for use in assisted reproduction treatments (if the presence of sperm in the urine is checked).

To do this, the patient must undergo a pre-treatment of alkalinization of urine.
