Good to know!! 🤪
You can orgasm after a prostatectomy, but you no longer ejaculate.
I’m not 100% on this but I would say It’s the stimulation of the prostate gland in order to help in the production of seminal fluid that influence the PSA reading when you still have a prostate. That’s why they recommended not to ejaculate 48hrs before the PSA blood test. Or stimulate the prostate through a Digital Rectal Exam or by other means.
Someone with more learned knowledge can correct me if I’m wrong.
Once the prostate is removed your PSA is being tested to keep an eye on any prostate cancer cells that may still be present somewhere in your body.
