Urolift / Anal Sex

Posted , 13 users are following.

Very personal info here guys but I have a major concern. I’m a gay man and I’m regularly on the receiving end of anal sex. Will this still be possible after urolift?

    Of course it will be!  I'm not a gay guy, but I also had a Urolift, 2 1/2 years ago, and remember the mechanics of it.  The little tabs are retained within the prostate; there is no penetration, as it were, of the bowels.  Although there will likely be some tenderness, you should be able to resume your usual activities after a couple of weeks...

    Good morning    Yes it will be.  Everything is done through the front not the back.  But you should wait 4 weeks to start back with sex.  The doctor tell you 4 weeks because they want the clips to a here to the prostate.  3 1/2 years here.  Take care  Ken

    Slincoln99,  I believe what you are asking is, will anal sex be safe for your prostate after the procedure.  I want to know the same thing. Like will anal sex move or undo the clips?  Please let me know if you ever found an answer.  Thanks!

      I got 3 positive responses but was not 100% comfortable with their reasoning as to why it’s ok. I see a urologist in St. Louis next Wednesday, 9/12 and will be asking for sure. I’ll let you know what he says. Please let me know if you learn anything. Feel free to share your story if you wish. I can share mine.

      Guy's.  Urolift has nothing to do with anal sex.  The clip are on the prostate and your ill not feel them if you do anal sex.  The doctor that does a finger test can't feel the clips either  Ken

      Hi @Slincoln99, @scott16231 and all other mates,

      Could you share with us the urologist's response to your question?

      And, if you had the urolift installed, are you able to perform anal sex with normality?

      Although my problem is not in the prostate but the bladder neck (where Urolift is also suitable), I am also concerned about the possibility of damages caused like moving or undoing the clips.

      Thank you all for your help!@

    If you look at urolift "dot" com /physicians you'll find a link to a document titled "Instructions for Use." This is the manufacturer's operating procedure the physician is to use. In it you will find a diagram illustrating where the urologist should deploy the implants. Specifically, if you are looking down the axis of urethra as the surgeon would do with a cystoscope, it limits placement to between 9 and 10 o'clock on the right lateral lobe and 2 and 3 o'clock on the left lateral lobe. This is to avoid the nerve bundles that run down the back of the prostate which happens to be where the posterior side of the rectum lies. In other words, the rectum lies at 6 o'clock from the same view.

    I don't know how different the instructions for placement would be for the median lobe but there's no reason to think they would be in that direction.

      Dear russ_777,

      Thank you very much for the useful information. I have downloaded the document and I will read it carefully.

      I understand the implants will be separated from the rectum but I have no information regarding whether that separation is enough for anal sex practise. I understand that the prostate might be under pressure and depresure adn depression during that practise and I ask myself if it may affect the suture, the capsular tab, the end piece and the urethra.

      I imagine that you don't have information on this. I will surely ask my urologist, but I'm trying to gather more experience.

      Thanks again,

      D.
