Welcome to the forum.
Low Hb and tiredness after sex can be improved with healthy diet and multivitamins.
Frequent urination needs evaluation by ultrasound scan to check if you have stone or infection. If none, it is called overactive bladder and needs treatment for three to six months.
Low count is not related to sexual performance. It is related to child bearing and needs to be addressed if you are looking for a child.
2 to 3 minutes is not bad and can be improved with general methods and specific medicines by a urologist.
All your problems are treatable and there should be no worry.
Best regards

Thanks Doctor,

Don't think i am confusing things but this is what i am experiencing ..
Already I have been to the Doctor regarding the immediate urge for urination(not in night) ,during day time ,while exposed to AC or in travel ,those i feel palm chillness also and this urge,they also said overactive bladder , but is this curable by medicines? Should go for any thyroidal problem
Even for this low count by God's grace i was gifted with one child,so i am not concerned about that issue now,but wanted to know I have any hormonal problem?
If i undergo circumcision ,will it lessen the sensitivity so that the prolonged the intercourse timing.

Please advise me

Thanks a lot ...

Welcome back.
OAB is treatable and curable with 3 to 6 months of anti-cholinergics.
Circumcision exposes the head of penis -called glans penis - and so sensitivity is expected to be less leading to longer intercourse time - at least on theory.
Thyroid problem needs to addressed by clinical examination followed by thyroid function tests if necessary. But this is not related to OAB and sexual performance.
Hope this helps.
best regards
