Question: 39, male with weak ejaculation. Much remains in the urethra and has to be urinated out. Sometimes there is irritation and urge to urinate but no urine to flush. Currently taking antidepressants and beta blockers which I must continue. Are there any remedies? Thank you.
Best Answer: I would recommend you do pelvic floor exercises. Pelvic floor exercises are a specific workout that intentionally engages, strengthens, and tones your pelvic floor muscles that are involved in bladder, bowel, and sexual function. To quickly identify the pelvic floor muscles try to stop the flow of urine while emptying your bladder. Do this once for a second or two, this is the correct muscle. This is the muscle you need to exercise.
Start the exercise by sitting or laying down. Squeeze your pelvic floor muscles for up to 10 seconds, then release. Do a set of 10 squeezes. Repeat the exercises two or three times a day. As your muscle strength improves, you can hold each squeeze for longer or add more repetitions.
