Retrograde Ejaculation Evaluation

Evaluation of retrograde ejaculation begins with a history and physical examination. Usually, the physical exam is normal.

Tests are required to make the diagnosis of retrograde ejaculation.

Tests that may be used to evaluate retrograde ejaculation include:

  • Urinalysis
    • A specimen shortly after ejaculation will show a large amount of sperm in the urine
  • Cystoscopy:
    • A fiberoptic scope is used to evaluate the urethra and bladder
