Brief Answer:
Have you ever had prostate surgery?

Detailed Answer:
HI,

This is called retrograde or dry ejaculation. This occurs because the semen goes into the bladder instead of coming out. What happens is urine after sex would be cloudy. This needs no specific treatment and as such there is no reason to panic.

Most common causes are drugs and surgery. However, your list of medications doesn't contain any drug known to do this. I will like you to also tell me whether you have ever had any surgery involving the prostate and bladder.

I hope this helps. I wish you well. Am always available for further exchanges if you deem them necessary.

Kind regards!
