This is kinda embarrassing, but I need to know some kind of answer because I have been putting it off for so long. OK, short story…I was married once, but because my ex-wife and I could not have kids she decided to get a divorce, stupid I know, but that is in the past and I am much happier now.
OK now the present day. I can’t believe IM writing this, but what the hell, I know I’m not the only one. OK…when I masturbate and at the end or peak when I ejaculate, very very little come out, and it is like this everytime. I was wondering what the cause of this would be and if that could answer why it was hard for me and my ex to have kids?

Thanks for understanding

Re: Question/Help

Ok didnt you two go to a doctor or doctors to find out what was going on?? It was dumb of her to jump ship especially if the reasons for the infertility was unknown.
Now the only way to know for sure what is going on is for you to go see your doctor and explain what you have noticed. It could you are one of those that doesnt ejaculate very much...the amount varies from guy to guy. So what may seem a little to you may not actually be,especially if you are comparing it to porn.
It could be anything from blocked ducts,to low hormones.
Go see your doctor and discuss it with him. Have a semen analysis done to see what those results are. You have to remember when you and your ex were trying there were TWO people involved and hence it is 50/50 on where the problem lies..who knows it could even have been both.
Also dont be embarrassed by this,many couples go through infertility problems. I know hubby and I went through three years of it but ours was secondary. In other words we had one child without problems but out second didnt come along as planned.

Re: Question/Help

I know I should probably go to the doctor, but it will be hard to tell him. "Hey doc, when I whack off I notice very little if any sperm come out". He will probably laugh his *** off. Plus, correct me if I am wrong, but dont they make you whack in a tube or cup or something to see how much you have? I know I shouldn't be, but I am very embarrassed about talking about stuff like this. I was so hard to post this, even though I know I am not the only one.

Re: Question/Help

Ok first a doctor is not going to laugh at you. Remember he is human to so he is also prone to masturbating to. Second of all he is a doctor and trust me he has seen more than you can imagine.
Also it is semen you see coming out not sperm,they are just a wee bit small to be seen by the naked eye.
As for the masturbating into a cup,yes that can be requested for a semen analysis. But you dont have to do it there in most cases because they require you to abstain from masturbating for about three days and then the sample is delivered to them or their lab.

My hubby was embarrassed about talking wtih our doctor for his first time but he knew it has to be done to rule out problems with him. I know it wasnt easy for him but the fact that we could find out more of what was going on helped him get over the embarrassment that he was feeling.

I can promise you the doctor wont laugh at you. Matter of fact most will be sympathic with you. and trust me it is better to know what is going on instead of sitting there wondering. This way by knowing when and if you decide to try for kids with another partner then you will be ahead of the game with your knowledge.
