A 38-year-old member asked:

Is it unusual for me to have trouble ejaculating after getting a penile implant?

No: Ejaculation is the release of semen, orgasm is the pleasant sensation. Ejaculation disappears after prostatectomy or with diabetes, 2 conditions that often lead to implant. Orgasm is possible with both conditions but may take longer after implant surgery.
