Doctor:How can I help you?
User:I am recently married, i need some clarifications from u
Doctor:Proceed with your query.
User:When i have a intercourse with my partner, my partner feels that the thickness is not enough
User:is that a problem
User:i am able to get a good erection and maintain it for a fairly long time
Doctor:Thickness or penis circumference is not a serious problem if you have learnt the art of sexual intercourse?
User:but still my partner requests me to consult a doctor
User:if i need to maintain my erection a little longer than usual, is it advisable to use tablets for this purpose
Doctor:The size of penis - length and grid is not constant. If you are able to have good erection and maintain the erection until ejaculation (which is usually for 2-3 minutes), then I would consider it normal.
Doctor:If you feel the erection is not good through out the intercourse, then perhaps you may need medication.
Doctor:Else, perhaps the displeasure of your partner is affecting the sexual functions.
Doctor:In such case a good and healthy conversation with your partner will benefit you more than you can think of.
User:i understand it is more to do with on the psychological part of it
Doctor:Talk with your partner.
User:i have already done a penile doppler test, the results are normal
Doctor:The psychological effects are more than what you think of and keeping the psychological fears at bay is very important.
Doctor:If penile doppler test are normal, that is a good sign.
User:if i need to take medication, what are the tablets that i can take
Doctor:Have a healthy conversation with your partner and know what is dissatisfying her.
User:she feels that my erection is not thick enough , when having intercourse
Doctor:If the penile doppler scan is normal, then there is probably no organic reason to explain not firm erection.
Doctor:You may take a prescription of erection enhancing pill from your urologist and use it briefly
Doctor:till you regain your confidence.
User:would use advice use of any tablets for erection enhancing
User:if so what would it be
