Question
Hi Doctor, I am 30 years old and have been married for 20 months now. Ever since marriage, I have had sexual problems. Initially, I was able to make penetration but had only premature ejaculation complaint. I was prescribed a medicine called duralast (dapoxetine) which I took for some days. However, that did not help much. The same doctor then prescribed me cildenafil citrate but I never took that, as I was afraid of the side effects of the same. After that, I was able to get on with it as some times I was able to sustain the ejaculation longer. In the last few days, I have observed that my erection does not stay long enough. I am able to make penetration initially but then I lose erection after some time, without ejaculating. I do not feel the erection strong enough initially as well. Another thing that I would like to tell you is that I observe a sharp pain in my pelvis area after intercourse sometimes. The same kind of pain occurs when I lose erection without ejaculating in the above situations that I had mentioned. I'm not sure what my problem actually is, is this caused by any medications that I have been taking off late or not. For current medications, please see medical history and current medications section. Please help me find a proper cause of my problem, as this is very troublesome. Thanks, XXXX

Brief Answer: Need evaluation Detailed Answer: Hello, Thanks for your query. I appreciate your efforts for medical consultation in so much distress. Important aspects of your query are: • 30 year old male • Known case of concentration and cognition problems • Complaints erectile dysfunction and premature ejaculation In your case erectile dysfunction should be treated first. Premature ejaculation sometime improve experience in sexual activities. Erectile dysfunction can be a result of a psychological or physical problem. Psychological causes: Most common cause in young patients. These include performance anxiety, emotional weakness, inferiority complex, stress, marital or relationship problems, low mood, feelings of guilt, and the effects of a past sexual and emotional trauma. Physical causes: Include neurological disorders, alcoholism, drug abuse, hormonal imbalances, diabetes, hypertension, blood vessel disease, chronic diseases and medicines side effects (like anti depressants/steroids). Concentration and cognition problems are common in anxiety and depression. Both condition can cause erectile dysfunction and premature ejaculation. You have already received Dothiepin, which is an antidepressant. Dothiepin has side effect in form of decrease sexual desire, prolong ejaculation and erectile dysfunction. It is better that you have stopped it. Following steps are needed in your case: 1. Talk to a therapist/Psychiatrist: Make an appointment to rule out anxiety, stress and depression in your case. 2. Be open with your partner. Talking with your partner about your anxiety can help ease some of your worries. Trying to reach a solution together might actually bring you closer as a couple and improve your sexual relationship. 3. Get intimate in other ways. There are many ways to be intimate without actually having sex. Give your partner a sensual massage or take a warm bath together. Take turns pleasing each other with masturbation so you don't always have to feel pressured to perform sexually. 4. Exercise. Not only will working out make you feel better about your body, but it will also improve your stamina in bed. Start aerobic exercise (like: Jogging, skipping and cycling) daily for 30 Minutes. It will increase blood flow all over body and will reduce stress. 5. Distract yourself. Try putting on some romantic music or a sexy movie while you make love. Think about something that turns you on. Taking your mind off of your sexual performance can remove the worries that are stopping you from getting excited. 6. Quit smoking and alcohol (if you are taking any) 7. Condom like Kohinoor extra time help in delaying ejaculation. There is also need to rule out certain medical conditions which can affect erection. These include diabetes, high blood pressure, heart or thyroid conditions, poor circulation, penile venous incompetency and neurological causes. For that comprehensive evaluation and tests, help of other specialist may also needed. As you are in Delhi NCR, you can visit me personally also after taking my address from XXXXXXX I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you. In case of any doubt, I will be available for follow ups. Wish you good health. Regards, http://bit.ly/Dr-Ashish-Mittal

Hello Doctor, Thanks for your response. I have recently had tests for BP, Thyroid and blood sugar and all have been reported to be in control. I am in Hyderabad, and not in Delhi NCR. It would be great if you suggest me a good psychiatrist in Hyderabad if you know anyone, or else I will try to find it out myself. Let me know if you have any other suggestions apart from consulting a psychiatrist. Thanks, XXXX
