My husband is Type 1 diabetic and was also recently diagnosed with an enlarged prostate. Diabetes affects blood pressure - raising it, and it may in some men cause erectile dysfunction. Tamsulosin Hydrochloride was prescribed and my husband has taken it for approximately 2 - 3 months. I can report that his urine flow has increased significantly but he does not produce semen when ejaculating, something he has been oblivious to and it is only me who has noticed it. Failure to produce semen is not listed as a side affect to the drug and I feel it is of low incidence and has therefore gone unreported. This failure presents no problem to my husband or me presently and only if it does will he report it to his GP. May I respectfully suggest to those men who find it problematical that they tell their doctors who will a) explain the possible cause of the side effect; b) change the medication or c) give reassurance that this will not affect their sexual performance.
