User avatar Hello,

Failure to ejaculate generally may occur as a result of (pelvic) nerve disease or damage. Nerve damage may result in retrograde ejaculate.

After orgasm, nerves that supply the bladder neck make them close to allow the semen to come out.

The most common causes of nerve damage include diabetes and a spinal chord injury.

Traumatic damage to the pelvic nerves e.g. after surgery is also very common, Did your husband undergo any surgical intervention in the pelvis? Or had extensive damage to pelvis? This could be the reason.

Try to reassure him since psychogenic causes are also common in such situations.

I advise you to inform his doctor about this issue.

Hope you find this information useful.
Best regards.
