Sperm Count “Zero”

Comment:

“I have been reading your publication and I find them very educating
 thanks and I am grateful for having people like you around.  I am a male and I have been married since 2010 with a pretty wife but we have no child yet.  I have done all the test recommended by my doctor (urologist) but no results yet the last results are stated below:

 prolactin….15.7   (reference – 2.6-13.1)

 scrotal scan :…… normal equal size no abnormalities)

 hormone profile……normal range

 sperm count …..zero

 From the doctors examination  and results he said that he does not
 understand why the sperm count is zero because my hormones are ok and
 my testicles are healthy looking at the scan and of equal size. He
 suggested that I may be suffering from retrograde ejaculation. Please
 doctor, I really need you to help me what can I do to regain full sperm
 count so I can have a child”.

Answer:

You need an evaluation to make sure there is no obstruction of the sperm or testicular abnormalities. You definitely do not have retrograde ejaculation.

Infected Penile Implant

Comments:

I had a penile implant 3 years ago. I had a burning pain in the scrotum where the pump was located. The pump was creating a hole in the skin, this had to be cut out. They put a different style pump in but the problem has never stopped with the burning. That device was taken out and a semi rigid rod was put in. The rod was unable to bend and had to be taken out two days later. During surgery the doctor tried to bend the rod while I was asleep but it would not bend. I continue to have the burning with everything out  Have you ever heard of this kind of problem?”.

Answer:

You had an infected implant that is why you had the problems mentioned. If all parts of the implant were removed you should heal up in due time.

Thank You,

Prostatectomy and Erectile Dysfunction

Comments:

“Dear doctor I have a severe erectile disfunction after the radical
prostatectomy I had 8 months ago. When my doctor put me a Prostaglandyne
inyection, I had a poor response and have an intense pain. He recommended me
to insert a maleable implant, but I am afraid to have the same painful
sensation  if I use this  kind of implant. I ll apreciate your wise opinion.”

Answer:

Implants once healed do not cause pain. We try to place inflatable implants. Malleable implants are reserved for very few rare cases. You should see an implant surgeon who can do this for you.

Thank You,
