User :   HI
User :   Dr XXX here
User :   How can i HELP you ?
User :   I am 35 years old. I have erectile issues.
User :   please proceed with your query in detail?
User :   my erections are very quick, fliuds are released far too quickly and my erection is gone
User :   how long have you been married?
User :   I am not.... I am gay
User :   Ok,
User :   so, is there a way to prolong my erctions
User :   how often do you have sex or masturbate ?
User :   my erctions last for around 5 mins only
User :   sex very rarely.... once or twice a year.... masturbation on a regular basis..... two/three per week
User :   ok
User :   so now you want to have longer erections while you masturbate
User :   is this right ?
User :   are you there ?
User :   well, I don't really care about masturbation.... I feel like myquick erctions is not helping my sex life
User :   well, that is the thing preventing me from having sex
User :   I should mention I have a boyfriend
User :   please tell me if you have erections within 1 minute, and have ejaculation within few secs of erection
User :   erctioons within 1 min or less.... not real ejaculation but fuilds release within secs and then no erections
User :   ok
User :   i will give you a few tips
User :   okay
User :   First step is watching your diet.
User :   ok
User :   A long lasting erection takes up a lot of nutrients, therefore you need to make sure your body receives enough of them.
User :   The crucial source of energy is carbohydrates, so include such foods as pasta, brown rice, potatoes, and bread in your diet
User :   but I have no health issues
User :   ok
User :   Zinc can be found in seafood, beef liver, raw cashews and pecans. Eating lots of fruits and vegetables, and getting a sufficient amount of oils in your diet helps lower your cholesterol and keep your blood vessels in good condition
User :   rice and potatoes are my regular diet
User :   ok
User :   also Avoid eating a lot right before having sex, allow at least an hour so that all the consumed food is properly digested.
User :   Another way to prolong erection is to limit your sensitivity.
User :   meaning
User :   The easiest and most obvious way of doing it is wearing a condom.
User :   You can also try focusing on something other than sex. Whenever you feel like you are about to lose control take your mind off the activity at hand for just long enough to avoid ejaculation but not lose your erection.
User :   condom is a must for me.. for no issues there
User :   ok, GOOD , HERE is the third method
User :   There are certain exercises you can do to help strengthen and control your PC muscle and other abdominal muscles that hold your erection.
User :   ok
User :   For these exercises to be effective, you have to perform them on a consistent basis. Not only will these exercises help you gain harder and longer erections on demand but also improve your overall penis health and increase your sex drive and stamina.
User :   what are the exercises
User :   these excercises are called KEGEL excercises
User :   okay wait, let me recharge
User :   done by contracting and relaxing the muscles
User :   ok
User :   i will chat with you once you come back
User :   HI XXXXXXXX welcome back
User :   we were chatting about kegel exercises
User :   hi again
User :   HI XXXXXXXX welcome back
User :   thanks
User :   we were chatting about kegel exercises
User :   okay
User :   Pelvic floor (Kegel) exercises can help strengthen some of the muscles that control the flow of urine
User :   what do I do
User :   Kegel exercises are done as follows: User :   The muscles to be exercised are the pelvic muscles. These can be felt by purposely stopping the flow of urine in midstream and starting again. The muscles that squeeze the urethra and anus are the ones involved.
User :   okay
User :   Remembering what it felt like to control these muscles during urination, try to contract them when not urinating.
User :   If the stomach or buttocks muscles tighten, the muscles are not being exercised correctly.
User :   Tighten these muscles for 3 seconds and then relax for 3 seconds.
User :   The exercises should be repeated 10 to 15 times per session. Do at least 3 sessions per day.
User :   Kegel exercises can be performed while traveling, at work, or at odd moments during the day.
User :   No one will be aware that you are doing the exercises, so you can do them frequently, no matter where you are.
User :   Kegel exercises techniques require a high level of motivation and frequent repetition to be successful.
User :   also other things that can help are
User :   Stop smoking or drinking
User :   Are you following me ?
User :   okay... i do smoke
User :   yes
User :   ok
User :   Smoking constricts blood vessels and leads to bad blood circulation, which could even lead to erectile dysfunction.
User :   Drinking too much alcohol makes your penis lose sensitivity and can inflate your prostate.
User :   do I have to completely stop drinking too
User :   yes, its better
User :   once in a while like once a month is ok
User :   or once a week, light is also ok
User :   but not excess
User :   is there a minimum level of alcohol that can be consume without much affacting my erectile and other helth well being
User :   okay
User :   less than 10-20 mg/Dl of Alcohol is ok
User :   okay
User :   the last step - trying a penis ring.
User :   is there anything else that can help me.... seems like the exercise will take a long time to take effect
User :   okay
User :   what's that?
User :   its difficult to get it in india, as they are banned in the open market
User :   but you may get it in the black market
User :   Penis rings are used to make penis firmer and harder for a longer period of time and to delay and intensify the orgasm by constricting the blood flow and keeping it at the shaft of the penis
User :   Penis rings are made of different materials such as rubber, leather, metal or plastic.
User :   which one is the best?
User :   for the immediate one giving instant results - PENIS RINGS
