Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia

Can BPH treatment cause sexual dysfunction?

In some cases yes it can, especially due to the side effects of pharmacological or surgical therapies. In particular, 5α-reductase inhibitors and alpha-blockers may decrease libido or interfere with erection. Alpha-blockers can also cause ejaculatory difficulties. Mini invasive surgical procedures may sometimes cause retrograde ejaculation - the disorder in which part or all of the ejaculate goes into the bladder instead of exiting through the penis during ejaculation.
