With BPH medicine during simulation no ejaculation and pain in shaft and groin. Is that common or I should stop sexual actibity.?

With BPH medicine during simulation no ejaculation and pain in shaft and groin. Is that common or I should stop sexual actibity.?

An alpha-blocker such as Flomax (tamsulosin) can cause retrograde ejaculation (goes into the bladder).

Can we use neostigmin in benign prostatic hyperplasia? Or what is the newest drug for bph?

Not for BPH: Neostigmine is often used to treat neuromuscular disease such as myasthenia gravis--and has many side effects. It is not for bph.

I certainly hope you don't have BPH at age 21. Consult doc if you have concern/problem. Good luck. ...Read more
