Type 2 diabetes: The lesser known sexual problem caused by high blood sugar levels

Type 2 diabetes is a lifelong condition which causes a person’s blood sugar level to become too high. Blood sugar levels rise due to a dysfunction in the way insulin is released. When this occurs symptoms such as blurry vision and increased thirst may occur. Sexual ailments may also occur other than erectile dysfunction. added: “Retrograde ejaculation is an uncommon type of ejaculation problem.

“It occurs when semen enters the bladder instead of coming out through the urethra during orgasm.

“Retrograde ejaculation can result in male infertility, and treatment would be required for fertility to be restored.

“Diabetes can cause retrograde ejaculation, in which poor blood sugar control over a long-term period leads to neuropathy of the bladder.

“Retrograde ejaculation can occur in diabetic males as a consequence of diabetic autonomic neuropathy.”

Men with diabetes are more likely to have Peyronie’s disease, also known as penile curvature.

The National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney disease explained: “Men with Peyronie’s disease have scar tissue, called plaque, in the penis, making it curve when erect.

“Curves in the penis can make sexual intercourse painful or difficult.

“Some men with Peyrionie’s disease may have erectile dysfunction.”
