Detailed Answer:
Hello

Thanks for the query

Excessive masturbation is the reason for you not getting hard while having sex. I am happy you are trying to quit. Here are my suggestions to you

1. It is difficult to stop masturbation immediately. I advice my patients to cut down on the number of times you masturbate in a day to half, the first week then slowly to just twice a week, The best way to go about it is to avoid the places and situations that leads to this.
2. Taking up a hobby helps you keep yourself engaged and mind off of masturbation
3. Tab Sildenafil is recommended in patients who are not able to get an erection 30 min before intercourse however I do not recommend this drug to you.

I hope I was of help, if you have any further queries please get back to me

I wish you all the best

Hi Doctor,
Thanks for the response. I have been able to keep my mind off porn or mastrubation over last 10 days. How long do you think before I can feel I am deaddicted and how long before I may start getting my hardness back? I do want to get it back naturally.

I am regular to my gym now and I am working on distressing myself. Any medicines you can prescribe to keep myself stress free etc?

You should be able to get back your erection if you have not masturbated for two days. De addiction is a continuous process and there is not set time to tell you are de addicted. The thing about de addiction is you might relapse anytime and you should make sure this does not happen.

Continue to lead a healthy lifestyle by eating right and exercising. The best way to de stress is to sleep well every night. I usually do not prescribe medications for de stressing as this might cause serious addiction. I recommend that you make life style changes in order to reduce your stress, if it is not helping even after several weeks of it then a small dose of Tab alprazolam can be tried. This has to be prescribed by a doctor.

I hope I was of help
