Male Infertility Factors

Retrograde Ejaculation

Retrograde ejaculation is when semen is mistakenly directed back into the bladder as opposed to out of the body through the urethra. Causes of retrograde ejaculation can include diabetes, medication, injury or past surgeries.

In most cases of retrograde ejaculation, sperm can be recovered from a urine sample and used during an In-vitro fertilisation (IVF) / Intra-cytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) cycle. In other cases, sperm can be obtained through a surgical sperm retrieval or SSR procedure such as Testicular Sperm Aspiration or TESA.
