Electroejaculation is a procedure that is performed when a medical or psychological condition prevents a male from being able to ejaculate. Such conditions include spinal cord injury, retroperitoneal surgery that severs the sympathetic nerves to the perineum, and psychological conditions.
During rectal probe ejaculation, the male is positioned on his side and a doctor inserts an electrical stimulation probe into the rectum. The doctor controls the amount of electrical stimulation delivered so that an ejaculation occurs. This can be done either in the office or in the operating room with anesthesia depending on the sensory status of the patient.
You should not take anything containing aspirin 1 week prior to your surgery. Do not ejaculate 2-4 days prior to the surgery. You will be contacted 48 hours prior to the procedure with the exact date and time of the procedure. You will need to arrive on the 9th floor of 635 Madison Ave at the specified time.
