Brief Answer:
Size is normal. PME need treatment.

Detailed Answer:
Hello again,
Thanks for your follow up query.

5 Inch penile length during erection is considered normal. So, no treatment required for this.

Premature ejaculation is diagnosed when ejaculation time is less than 3 Min, or both partners are not satisfied with sex. In your case ejaculation time is 7-8 steps (few seconds) only.

Premature ejaculation (PME) is common problem and depends on multiple factors like:

*Psychological factors: most common. The psychological factors may include stress, performance anxiety and depression

*Medical causes: Reflex activity of ejaculatory system, thyroid problems, urinary infection, excessive alcohol use and neurological causes.

FOLLOWING STEPS WILL BE HELPFUL FOR TREATMENT of PME:

-Treatment of above conditions (if present) after examination.

- Try distracting yourself when you feel you are about to ejaculate. Take a deep breath and stay relaxed during intercourse.

- Do not worry about performance and talk to your partner openly about any apprehensions if you have. Conversation with partner during sex also delay ejaculation.

-Stop start technique: In stop start technique, near ejaculation stop all movements, relax and think about something else. Then wait for 1 minute before starting movements. According to number of stops, ejaculation time will come under your control.

-Squeeze- pause technique: squeeze the end or the tip of the penis for 10 to 20 seconds when you are close to ejaculation and then resume stimulation after withholding for half a minute.

-In many persons woman on top position increases ejaculation time, so try this position and experiment with other positions also.

-Condoms with desensitizing creams (marketed as Kohinoor extra time) help in increasing ejaculation time. Just wear this as normal condom and start sex after 30 seconds of penile massage, as medicine take some time to act.

-Prescription medicine like Tab Dapoxetine 30mg also help in premature ejaculation if taken 2 hours before sex.

I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you. In case of any doubt, I will be available for follow ups.

Wish you good health.
