Question: I am almost 70 years old. I know I have an enlarged prostate. I also am observing that for several months I am completely "dry" when I ejaculate. Is that normal? Should I be worried?

Brief Answer:
Hello. It is not a serious concern

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear. I have gone through your query. So dry ejaculation can be due to many reason in your case. One is that in old age there is testosterone deficiency which can lead to non production of semen.
Some drugs used to treat prostatic enlargement can cause it.
Sometimes there is retrograde ejaculation and semen goes into urinary bladder due to laxed valves.
It is not a serious concern and you ahould not be worried.
Thanks and regards
