This kind of problem is not at all unusual among boys. It’s called retrograde ejaculation, and it happens when the semen is prevented from spurting out through the opening in the glans during ejaculation. In older men there are certain medical problems that cause retrograde ejaculation, but in boys, it usually happens when the boy is masturbating and he covers the opening in the penis as he’s about to ejaculate, as the boy who asked this question did.

‘Retrograde’ means ‘going backwards’. In retrograde ejaculation the semen can’t come out of the end of the penis, so it travels backwards down the urethra. It may be forced up the tube that leads to the bladder, which can cause the urine to be cloudy for some time afterwards. The semen may also be forced into the prostate gland. In either case there may be pain and discharge from the penis. .

In some instances the symptoms will clear up by themselves, but often a doctor’s care is needed. Although it may be embarrassing for a boy to tell the doctor that he’s been masturbating and to explain how the retrograde ejaculation happened, it’s important to see the doctor if you have pain, a milky discharge or milky urine. If the semen is forced up into the prostate gland, the tissues of the gland could become irritated and susceptible to infection. The doctor can treat such infections with antibiotics and, if necessary, with pain-killers. From this, you can see that it is not a good idea to prevent your ejaculate from coming out of the end of your penis.
