In diseases of the nervous system and nerve fibres, erectile dysfunction and ejaculation disorders can occur.

  • Dry orgasm: ejaculation does not occur despite the feeling of orgasm.
  • Retrograde ejaculation: the semen is ejected directly into the urinary bladder due to a missing or defective bladder closure, it is later emptied with the urine.

Damage to the nervous system or nerve fibres occur, amongst other things, in advanced diabetes mellitus, through consumption of certain medications or through surgical injuries to the prostate.
