Please increase your stamina before having sex

Detailed Answer:
Hi M,
Thanks for writing in to us.

I have read through your query in detail.
Sex involves physical activity and emotional togetherness. It can be compared to a physical exercise requiring about 100 kCal on an average. This can increase with duration of foreplay and sexual performance. If you involve in rough sex and for a long duration, it can be tiring. The best thing to do would be to take a short nap in the evening and eat good amount of nutritious food so that later in the night you have your energy reserve. Generalized weakness and stress at work can also cause tiredness and make you feel sick.

The average quantity of seminal fluid ejaculated by a man at your age is approximately 5 ml which is a teaspoon. This can differ with the frequency of sex or masturbation and the amount of hydration (water content) in your body. If you have ejaculations more than once then the first time will have maximum volume. It is very rare at your age for any medical cause of less seminal fluid.

Hope your query is answered.

Brief Answer:
Please evaluate your stress levels

Detailed Answer:
Hi M,
You are welcome and thanks for writing back with an update.

Its better to think over if you are really having huge amounts of stress at work and try to control it. If you feel that you are losing weight, have occasional fever and any cough or pains then its always better to consult a doctor. On the other hand if you do not have any physical medical problem and strongly feel stress due to anxiety then please consult a psychiatrist.

Your height and weight are normal and not a cause of concern.

Hope your query is answered.
