Doctor:how can I help u today ?
User:I am having problem of premature ejaculation
Doctor:May i know your age ? Marital status ?
User:also my erections dont last for long
Doctor:Are u able to have strong erections, during early morning ?
Doctor:i mean, when not having sex ?
User:yes sometimes when I wake up
Doctor:how long have u had this issue ? how long have u been married ?
User:around 3 months
Doctor:how long have u had this issue , has it been since marriage ? or just started ?
User:since marriage
Doctor:YOU NEED NOT worry then
Doctor:since you are able to have strong erections during morning, it is certain that your issue is due to psychological issues , and performance anxiety
Doctor:first and foremost, you need to wait , to have sex, only when you are fully ready
Doctor:and take time, and relax , before penetration
Doctor:if you feel that you are having weaker erections, you can be treated with medications, that help you have strong erections
User:I am doing that but by the time I wear the condom after foreplay I loose erection
User:also I ejeaculte very soon after penetration
Doctor:that , is certain , indicates, that it is due to performance anxiety
User:are there medications that can help me have strong erections and last long
Doctor:First, instead of using condoms, you can adopt oral contraceptives for your wife, which are very effective in contraception, than condoms
Doctor:so, for a few times, you can get over your performance anxiety
Doctor:its just a few proper and enjoyable sessions, that you will gain confidence, which is probably lacking
User:she is not too comfortable with oreal contraceptives due to the side effects
Doctor:has she used them before ?
Doctor:then she is definitely misinformed
Doctor:millions of women , use them, all over the world and they are safe, unless she had medical conditions, which do not allow them
User:ok so you suggest her taking oral contraceptives instead of me taking any medications
Doctor:it is common, that men, who are newly sexually active have psychological issues, due to which, they think, they will not be able to perform during sex,
Doctor:and this anxiety, causes them to feel inadequate
Doctor:First and foremost, I would advise a counselling session, by a gynaecologist (couple counselling) who can advise you advantages of oral contraceptives and also can prescribe you medications, that will help u have strong erections
Doctor:using them for a few sessions, will help u gain confidence
User:ok thanks
Doctor:You are welcome

Doctor:please proceed
User:of urination at night

User:well I have plenty of water during the day
User:but not of frequent urination
User:I do go around 5- 7 times
