Posted on Thu, 19 May 2016
Question: Hello doctor, i am 29 and we recently have baby 3 months back. I have question regarding sexual health. We dont have intercourse since last 7 months. Now i feel little bit insecure of having confident sex. I am struggling in it. When i masturbate i have proper errection and while we have intercourse i have to errect it , it doesnt get errected naturally, how can i treat this condition? Am i having errectile dysfunction? At the time of masturbation ot is properly errected. I have thyroid disorder, taking thyroxin 50 mg . My endo told me you will feel better in this case after regulation of thyroid with pill but i dont find any change. I started exercise and taking proper sleep, it has given freshness to life. Last year when we were about to conceive baby doctor suggested me olygex named ayurvedic medicine for better sexual health and it helped me too. But what could be the teasons ? Is it obesity ? My bmi 35 weight is 110 kg. Thanks in advance.

Brief Answer:
this is more of psychological but definite need to reduce weight

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for using healthcaremagic.
I have gone through the details provided in query and understand your concerns.

First of all I like to inform you that there is no evidence of organic erectile dysfunction evidenced by normal erection during madturbation. Having said this it is important to stop evaluating yourself negatively since it adversely affects your sexual functioning.

Secondly there is immediate need to reduce the body weight to at least less than 30 BMI. This is extremely important as excess fat tissue deterorates the hormone function resulting in poor sexual performance.

Thirdly continue positive efforts that you are taking these days like proper sleep, regular exercise of at leadt 45 minutes and balanced diet.

In case you do not get proper response with these measures please see a psychiatrist for complete evaluation and treatment.

I hope this helps you.
If you have more questions feel free to write back to me.
Thanks and regards.

Ok sir you mean its not about medicine, its a gap which we have and little bit negativity of not having proper sex that creates a problem right. There is nothing like errectile dysfunction? I just need to try and try more. And should continue weight reduction. This is common problem right ? No meed to worry ?
