Hi Doctor,

I'm thinking of surgical methods to help minimize chance of my wife getting HBV etc. Can Castration prevent me from ejaculation and thus save my wife from catching STD? Please inform.

Best regards.



Response from Dr. Dieterich

Dear Laughmore,

Castration does not prevent ejaculation or make you less contagious. The best thing you can do to prevent your wife from acquiring HBV is to get her vaccinated for it! It is simple easy and effective. Get her to the doctor and get her the vaccine! Good luck! DTD
