Brief Answer: It is due to side effect of Rapilif8 Detailed Answer: Hello Thanks for your query. Based on the facts that you have posted it seems that you have Enlarged prostate and your family physician has prescribed you to take Rapilif8 . Rapolif 8 belongs to a group of drug alpha blockers and acts selectively on receptors located in bladder neck and prostate and causes relaxation of smooth muscles in prostate and bladder neck resulting improvement of urine flow. However as bladder neck remains open during ejaculation semen enters in bladder instead of entering in to urethra what is called as Retrograde ejaculation. Please consult qualified Urologist for clinical evaluation and to get prescription of alternate drug like Naftopedil having similar mode of action without retrograde ejaculation. Hope I have answered your query,Please feel free to ask if you have more questions ,I shall be happy to help you. Thanks and Regards. Dr.Patil.
