Brief Answer:
This could be retrograde ejaculation

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

Your semen is being injected into your bladder rather than out your urethra.
Certain medications and an enlarged prostate gland can cause the problem.
It's not dangerous but let your doctor know about the problem since it can be treated most of the time.

Please let me know if you need any more information.
