Retrograde ejaculation will kill my sex drive - FALSE
Retrograde ejaculation is also called dry orgasm. It happens when sperm doesn’t leave the body through the penis. Instead, it is pushed back into the bladder where urine is stored. Retrograde ejaculation may be caused by surgery, drugs or health problems of the nervous system. Signs are cloudy urine after ejaculation and less fluid or "dry" ejaculation. This condition isn’t harmful or painful. It doesn’t affect your sex drive, your ability to get an erection or have an orgasm. If you don’t want children, you may not need treatment. If you decide you want treatment, there are drugs that can help. Talk to your doctor if you have symptoms to help decide your next steps.
Saw Palmetto and other prostate supplements are proven to be helpful - Probably NOT TRUE.
The science on taking supplements for prostate health isn’t settled yet. One popular prostate supplement is saw palmetto. Large well-designed studies have repeatedly shown that saw palmetto wasn’t any more effective than a placebo for treating urinary symptoms related to an enlarged prostate or benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). Several smaller studies of shorter duration and less well-designed studies suggest saw palmetto MAY help improve symptoms of an enlarged prostate. The less well-designed studies only lasted a short time (usually less than 3 months), so it’s not known whether saw palmetto has any real impact on BPH symptoms. It is always best to talk to your doctor before taking any new supplement.
Daily Tadalafil can be helpful for BPH - TRUE
Tadalafil (Cialis) is best known as a drug for erectile dysfunction. But it is also approved by the FDA to treat urinary symptoms of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). Unlike other BPH drugs, tadalafil doesn’t interfere with sexual function. When used to treat BPH, it is taken at a lower dose than when it is taken to treat erectile dysfunction. The drug can be taken to treat both urinary problems from BPH and erectile dysfunction simultaneously. To treat BPH, tadalafil should be taken once daily at about the same time each day. It is always best to talk to your doctor before taking any new supplement.
