Thanks for your query.Based on the facts that you have posted it appears that you have problem of not ejaculating during sexual intercourse since last four years.

Since you had normal ejaculation through out your life your present problem is termed as secondary anejaculation.

I shall be happy if you can post me few more details to help me to make comments on your problem.
1) Do you have Diabetes,Hypertension or any other major health issue ?
2)Are you taking any medications for other illness ?
3) Have you undergone surgery in the past especially for prostate problem like TURP or BNI ?
4) Have you ever tested your blood to estimate Testosterone or FSH levels in your blood ?
5) What is the frequency of intercourse in a week ?
6) Have you ever done ultrasound scanning or Rectal probe scanning to rectify any problem in prostate or seminal vesicles ?

In absence of any major health issue ,in majority of cases anejaculation at this age is due to retrograde ejaculation where semen gets ejaculated backwards in bladder rather than forward in to urethra.This can be confirmed by presence of sperms in urine by doing microscopic urine examination immediately after intercourse.

Please have atrial of one of the following medicines to get ejaculation
Tab Pseudoephedrine once daily or Imipramin once daily .Please consult your family physician for timing of the drug to be taken and prescription.

You can also try using penile vibrator during sex to increase sensitivity of penis and penile stimulation.

Hope I have answered your query. If you have any more questions please feel free to ask me I shall be happy to help you
