Definition - What does Retrograde Ejaculation mean?

Retrograde ejaculation occurs when the semen produced by a male orgasm is released into the urinary bladder rather than ejaculated through the urethra.

Retrograde ejaculation may also be called dry orgasm.

Kinkly explains Retrograde Ejaculation

Retrograde ejaculation is often due to weak bladder neck muscles or nerve damage. During climax, the bladder neck muscles will typically contract to prevent the flow of semen into the urinary bladder, thus forcing it to exit via the urethra. In retrograde ejaculation, these muscles fail to perform this task. Although it can sometimes cause male infertility, retrograde ejaculation is not generally harmful.

Those who suffer from retrograde ejaculation can still experience orgasms, although they may ejaculate very little semen. This is sometimes referred to as a dry orgasm.
