User :   I have few questions to ask about 2 different topics.
Doctor :   ok
Doctor :   plz proceed
User :   Thank you.
User :   First, Its about sex related problem. precisely about a male organ.
Doctor :   ok
User :   I am married since 5 months now
Doctor :   ok
User :   whenever i try to involve into a sexual act with my wife, i do not get strong erections, mostly i dont. they are pretty soft.
User :   also they do not last for long
Doctor :   ok
User :   i will be 30yrs old this july
Doctor :   ok
User :   i never had sex before my marriage
Doctor :   ok
User :   my foreskin is also is in place and i can easily pull it back. will it open up completely after my successful sexual activity?
Doctor :   ok
User :   Also, i feel that my penis is smaller in size. 4.5 - 5 inches when erect and 1-2 inches when not erect
User :   what medications would you suggest to recover from here.
Doctor :   ok
Doctor :   There is no medicine available for penis enlargement
Doctor :   i mean
Doctor :   medications cannot increase the size of the penis
Doctor :   but you should not worry about the size of the penis
User :   yes, that i understood by articles on your website and other websites as well
Doctor :   only 3 inches size is enough for the sucessful intercourse
Doctor :   as the vagins has sensations in the initial 3 inches only
Doctor :   is this clear to you?
User :   yeop . . .
Doctor :   ok
Doctor :   now regarding the fore skin
User :   okay...
Doctor :   Fore skin offers the protection to the penis, in some individuals it will retract automatically after a certain age and in some other
Doctor :   individuals
Doctor :   fore skin may not retract
Doctor :   but it is not the problem if someone can retract the foreskin fully in erected condition
User :   okay . . .
Doctor :   only thing to be kept in mind is that the white secretion under the foreskin which is known as smegma must be washed off daily
Doctor :   its accumaulation is not good
Doctor :   so dont worry about foreskin
User :   okay . . .
Doctor :   if you dont like it then you can go for circumcision, which is a small operation of few hours
Doctor :   i think that this doubt is also cleared in your mind?
User :   okay, but it is not mandatory to have it done, right?
Doctor :   no if there is pain during erection then only it is advised
Doctor :   otherwise it is harmless procedure which involves very less risk so one can opt for it
Doctor :   if he likes
User :   okay. no, i dont feel pain during erection.
Doctor :   it is not mandatory
Doctor :   then you medically dont need it
