As men age, there is an increased incidence of lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS), often from benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) which can adversely affect sexual function. There are many different treatments for these symptoms; however, many of the treatments also affect sexual quality of life, specifically in the realm of ejaculation. Our paper will review the medications, surgical procedures, minimally invasive procedures, and even investigational procedures used to treat LUTS/BPH and the effect they have on ejaculation. The aim of this paper is to help practitioners counsel patients more effectively on treatment options when ejaculation is a concern.
