Hmm... Okay. After playing around quite a bit for about two weeks straight (about once or twice a day), he dry-fired on his orgasm. We were pretty sure that it was because of the fact that he had ejaculated a lot in the past two weeks. We didn't get to see each other for two weeks (job stuff), but now he's back. He's been home for about a week and a half, and it's been pretty constant, for the most part. At least once a day. But the other day, he dry-fired again. And then I was sick for a day, so we didn't do anything. Then the next day, another dry-fired. And then the next night, he didn't. I find this very, very odd. I've read about retrograde ejaculation, but he hasn't had any significant injury or surgery down there or anything. It's starting to get somewhat annoying. There is no pain that I'm aware of. Is this cause for concern? Should we have the doctor look at it?

Actually, you may be surprised to know that ejaculation and orgasm are two separate events. They just usually happen to occur at the same time.
Can I ask why you find this "annoying"? I mean, unless you're trying to get pregnant (which it doesn't sound like you are) I don't see why this is an issue in terms of you getting anything out of it.
It's certainly possible (and I'd even say likely) that if he's been masturbating/been intimate with you numerous times a day, or more often than usual, he may still be at the end of his refractory period between orgasms, or his body just may not have had a chance to catch up regardless of whether he's finished the refractory period (in case you didn't know, this is the period after ejaculation/orgasm where another ejaculation/orgasm just isn't possible until the body catches up.)
So no, I don't think seeing a doctor is necessary, given there's been no trauma or surgery. Maybe cutting back on how often you two are intimate with eachother or how often this intimacy ends in him finishing might help, but there's ultimately no harm in this.
