Hello doctor,

I am suffering from erectile dysfunction and my masturbation does not last long. How to overcome this?

Kindly help.



Welcome to icliniq.com.

Thank you for your query.

I understand your concern. Premature ejaculation is diagnosed when you have premature ejaculation within one or two minutes of sex, continuously several times with the same partner for over six months. There is nothing called premature ejaculation while masturbation. Premature ejaculation occurs when a man ejaculates sooner during sexual intercourse than he or his partner would like. Premature ejaculation is a common problem that happens due to psychological stress and anxiety in the majority of people. I suggest sex therapy and sex counseling for you. If you have a partner then talk to her before and during the act, prolong foreplay, and be under no pressure to perform or penetrate. It should all flow and happen naturally. Lifestyle changes, reducing consumption of alcohol, relaxation, exercise, and yoga, will all enhance physical well-being and positively contribute to psychological wellness and confidence. Aerobic exercise or running or swimming will increase your stamina and endurance. A low-dose anti-anxiety medication from the SSRI group may help.

I hope this has helped you. Thank you.
