Thanks for using health care magic for posting your query.
I have gone through your query, and I can understand what you are going through.
The phenomenon that you are experiencing is very common among the newly weds and you are not an exception. It happens due to anxiety to perform sex and due to pressure on performance. Moreover every person has his own capacity to perform sex and how frequently he does it varies from person to person.
You would be interested to know that the frequency of normal sexual encounters among the married people in India is 1-2 times a week and thats it. I am sure during the initial phase of marriage, your frequency might have been much more than this.
What you can do is,take your wife into confidence and take a break of 3-4 days. Or else you may indulge in kissing and fondling but not the insertion part for 3-4 days. Feel comfortable with your partner. Do some creative activity like gardening or cooking together.
This problem will settle down on its own in 7 days time.DO NOT USE OVER THE COUNTER MEDICATIONS FOR INCREASING YOUR ERECTILE STRENGTH.That would do no good to you.
Hope i am able to help you with your query.
Thanks and regards,
Dr. Srikanth Reddy MD
