ejaculation but no feeling of orgasm?

My husband is 34 and his grandfather had MS and was ultimately paralysed. Last few months he lost sensitivity during sex though he has no problems with having an erection and ejaculating, he just can’t feel any of the orgasm. And he has burning/tingling feelings when he pees (like a yeast infection). Has anyone dealt with this or heard of this? What kind of doctor would be best to see for this? This has been so scarry and infuriating - thank you for your responses and support!

Hello

My first thought on reading your post was that burning/tingling on urination often indicates a urinary tract infection (UTI). Have a look at https://mstrust.org.uk/a-z/urinary-tract-infection-uti

I had a look around and also found this: https://mstrust.org.uk/a-z/delayed-or-absent-orgasms-and-ejaculation

While both these links are from the MS Trust, it’s important to recognise that these issues are experienced by people without MS just as much as with MS. Indeed, UTIs are something that are very common regardless of any underlying condition.

Maybe both problems are caused by the same cause, an infection.

His first port of call would generally be his GP. I know it’s frequently difficult for men to talk about problems with health, particularly when related to their penis (massive generalisation - forgive me for that, it’s not true for all men). Just encourage him to get some medical opinion on both problems.

I assume your husband isn’t diagnosed with MS, it just worries you because of his grandfather. Rest assured there is no direct genetic link involved with MS. Once again a factsheet from the MS Trust is handy: https://mstrust.org.uk/a-z/risk-developing-ms

It makes clear that even if his father had MS, his risk of getting it would be just 1 in 67. With a grandparent it’s much less likely.

Best of luck.

If your husband has recurring UTIs he should ask to be put on a maintenance dose of anti biotics.

A male friend who has had MS for longer than me advised me to try it when I kept having them.

It is one tablet of trimethoprim in the evening. It works!!

Probably best seeing his GP. Might not be anything to do with MS, but could be a urinary tract infection, or prostatitis.

This brings to mind a friend who had a similar problem and we all thought he had yeast instead. But after consulting at the (removed by moderator)and with some tests ran through, he finally got a relief on. My advice to you is do a local and cross city search for someone who understands how to treat this because it needs patience and also had to deal with your br ain works or state of mind
