It seems you have connected your feelings of congestion to ejaculation. As such, it may be difficult now to change this sensation as you've been doing it for some time.  Finasteride or similar medications may help reduce the semen production and help with the sensation.  Also try sitting in a hot tub.  Talk to your physician if these simple things don't help.
