Retrograde Ejaculation and Sexual Dysfunction in Men With Diabetes Mellitus
Diabetic men and controls are examined for retrograde ejaculation, and erectile dysfunction is registered with a validated questionaire (International Index of Erectile Function-15). Concentration, total number of sperm and motility is determined in freshly delivered ejaculates and postejaculatory urine. Our hypothetis is that diabetics exhibit significantly higher rate of retrograde ejaculation than healthy controls.
