    Does an enlarged prostate cause problems with ejaculation?

    I am 46 yrs. old and have to push harder to urinate to the point that I pass gas. Also, I have very little discharge if any after several hours of sex because I can't reach climax. My partners think they don't turn me on enough, and it's embarrassing. Is there a way to treat this?

    Pushing harder to urinate is an indication that you may have lower urinary tract obstruction. Although not commonly seen, a very significant prostate obstruction may be associated with a decrease in ejaculation. I recommend being evaluated by a Urologist.
