Hello everyone. I am new to the site. I have been searching the web for an answer to my question. Little or nothing really addresses my issue. I've completed radiation for prostate cancer about 3 months ago. I have found that I can no longer ejaculate during intercourse. It is very disconcerting to be honest. Is this normal??
Unfortunately, yes it always happens. I'm surprised your doctor didn't tell you to expect it. You may produce a small amount of fluid (a few drops) from your Cowper's glands, but that's about it. The radiation destroys the ability of the prostate and the seminal vesicles to produce semen. Most of us are happy to retain the ability to get an erection and have an orgasm.

Weirdly, three years after radiation treatment for prostate cancer, my husband has begun to ejaculate again. But it's bloody, which--needless to say--concerns me. Anybody on this board resume ejaculating? Is blood just because he has an irritated, unhappy prostate? Will it pass?
Sometimes necrotic tissue from the radiation sloughs off and it bleeds. I get that sometimes and it's quite normal. I'm a bit surprised that it's still going on 3 years after treatment. If it were me, I'd call my Radiation Oncologist just to be on the safe side and get reassurance.
