In most cases, penile prosthesis implantation does not interfere with urination or ejaculation. However, there is a small risk of complications, such as infection, bleeding, or nerve damage, which could affect these functions.
The type of penile prosthesis you choose may also affect urination and ejaculation. For example, inflatable prostheses have a small pump that is located in the scrotum. This pump can be used to inflate the cylinders in the penis, which can make it difficult to urinate. However, this is usually a temporary problem that goes away after a few weeks.
If you are concerned about the impact of penile prosthesis implantation on urination or ejaculation, talk to your doctor. They can discuss the risks and benefits of different types of prostheses and help you choose the one that is right for you.
Here are some additional things to keep in mind:
- If you have an inflatable penile prosthesis, you may need to empty your bladder more often than usual. This is because the pump can make it difficult to urinate completely.
- If you have a rigid penile prosthesis, you may have difficulty ejaculating. This is because the prosthesis can make it difficult for the semen to flow out of the penis.
- If you have any concerns about the impact of penile prosthesis implantation on urination or ejaculation, talk to your doctor. They can help you manage any problems that may arise.
Penile prosthesis implantation typically does not interfere with urination or ejaculation. The primary purpose of this procedure is to address erectile dysfunction (ED) by enabling men to achieve and maintain erections for sexual intercourse. Here’s how urination and ejaculation are typically unaffected by penile prosthesis implantation:
- Penile prostheses are designed to have no impact on the urinary function of the penis. The urinary tract, including the urethra, remains intact and functional after the implantation procedure.
- The prosthesis is placed within the erectile bodies of the penis, and it does not obstruct or interfere with the flow of urine from the bladder through the urethra.
- Patients should be able to urinate normally without any difficulty or changes in urinary function following penile prosthesis implantation.
- Penile prostheses are also not intended to affect ejaculation. The ejaculation process is primarily controlled by the reproductive system, which is separate from the erectile function.
- Ejaculation involves the release of semen from the seminal vesicles and prostate into the urethra, followed by its expulsion from the body. This process remains unchanged after penile prosthesis implantation.
