    Difficulty Ejaculating
    An_241604 posted:
    The last four weeks I have had problems being able to ejaculate (Orgasm) I have been able to get hard but even with manual and oral stimulation I cannot reach the point of ejacualtion. Note four weeks ago I had major dental work and still have pain- sometimes severe. Also I have enorged (large) veins in my scrotum - this issue was discovered in 06 and comes and goes. The pain in the scortum also started four weeks ago. Could these two issues be causing my problem? WJD

    Pain is a notorious short-circuit for the reproductive system. Your body registers pain as danger, meaning unsafe to produce children, and can shut down "normal" function of your reproductive system (libido, erections, response to stimulus). The varicocele, once it becomes painful, requires surgery, which you report it has.

    Make sure you see a urologist who is a qualified microsurgeon to treat the varicocele. Surgery in that area will also set you back from "trauma" until it has fully healed several weeks afterwards.

    Do not delay in addressing the pain (both). Pain in the scrotum is considered an EMERGENCY situation.
