Semen Volume Reduction

To Whom Ever can advise
"I'm a 62 year old male. I have noticed that just in the past several years my semen volume has diminished to just a  drop when i ejaculate. My penis no longer throbs and my testicles seemed to have gotten a lot smaller. My sex drive is much reduced and my climaxes are almost pseudo. My penis does'nt get all that firm when erect and I don't walk up in the moring with an erection as in the past. Even if I go a month without ejaculating or no matter how aroused I am it stays the same. When I do ejacualte its with great labor and then only clear sperm comes out with little or no semen. I've talked to my family doctor but he does'nt see it as a serious concern. He says its part of our aging mechanism to discourage men from "wandering". No big deal! But it is to me. Is there anything that can be done.

Listen to your doctor,  that is the truth and what you're experiencing is another normal part of aging.      Male sexual peak is between 15 and 30 then gradually declines from then on.

A reduction in semen can be caused by certain drugs (such as Flomax and others).  It is somewhat a part of aging but can also be caused by prostate enlargement which interferes with proper ejaculation just as it does urination.  A small amount of a daily alpha-blocker ( a blood pressure med) can help relax the prostate muscles, if that is causing a restriction.  If your doctor dismisses it, insist that this is bothersome to you and make sure you are doing all you can.
