Doctor :  
from your symptoms and given the situation it seems the cause for the inability to maintain the erection seems to be performance anxiety

User :   ok-
User :   wat type of physical examination?
Doctor :  
consult a urologist near by your place in this regard.

Doctor :   he will do the physical examination and necessary tests can be done in the laboratory to rule out any organic cause

Doctor :   it is difficult to guess what it can be with out doing physical examination
User :   serious disease?
Doctor :  
not serious disease
Doctor :   there is nothing serious
Doctor :  
as you have the erection and it is only not maintaining for penetration it is not impotence also
User :   ok-u knw another problem is me n my wife dn stay together in same city due to professional work- so we get very less time to spend together-
Doctor :   in the short time you want to spend the max!
Doctor :  
so only i suspected the cause is performance anxiety
User :   may b- but we marry after 10 yrs of love , so we are not new to each other

User :   recently i ws feeling tht am not having the normal morning erection also- but suddenly from last few days it s happening again-
Doctor :

physically tired and wife also far away and i guess only in the week end you both meet

User :   not alwys- she also comes
Doctor :   you are physically tiered as well as mentally because by occupation you are a banker coupled with the less time you have to spend with the wife.

these all might be the reason for the early loss in the erection

I suggest you this

it is a antioxidant and micro nutrient supplement
User :   ok- this remnds that now a days i also feel tired in d morning- it persists upto noon-
User :   reminds
User :   i sleep for 7-8 hrs in the nite
User :   so, no tiredness should come
User :   my wife says tht because of not doing any exercise or physical work it happens
Doctor :   adequate sleep doesn't means tiredness will not come
Doctor :  
most common cause of the tiredness is multinutriton deficiency
User :   okk
Doctor :   it need not be multivitamin
User :   ok

Doctor :   more of aloo and the carbohydrate stuff is the reason for your weight is on the upper limit

User :   yes- i knw
Doctor :   also lack of vegetables do cause deficiency in micro nutrition
