A growing body of literature supports the observed association between lower urinary tract symptoms and sexual dysfunction. The causal relationship between these two conditions has not been determined. Ejaculatory function is an important aspect of sexual functioning, and recent studies have shown a high prevalence of this ejaculatory dysfunction in men with lower urinary tract symptoms. Furthermore, the degree of bother associated with ejaculatory dysfunction is quite high, making it an important problem for patients. Thus, health care providers should have a heightened sense of awareness for the presence of ejaculatory dysfunction and appropriate patient counseling should be undertaken before initiation of specific treatments for lower urinary tract symptoms.
