Hi Bhavanasree, Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum.
What exactly are your other symptoms during this Pregnancy? Do you have Diabetes or Hypertension? This Drug is not Prescribed in Pregnancy but it should be given only if the potential benefit justifies the potential risk to your fetus. I don't know what your Health Condition is right now. It is also prescribed if it is needed in a life threatening situation or for a serious disease for which safer drugs cannot be used or are if they are found to be ineffective. So, i would suggest you to take it as directed by your Doctor and go for regular follow up.

Good Luck and Wish you Good Health, Take Care.

Hi Doc

I am a male, 68yo, widower, Chinese (not from China). I lead an active sex life.....I have sex at least twice a week sometimes with different women (not prostitute). For the last 1 month, 5 out of 10 times that I have sex...I couldn't ejaculate although the sensation of ejaculation were there. I have Type 1 Diabetes..I inject 52mg of insulin everyday plus captoril and simvastatin. I also consume 80mg of Aspirin everyday for the last 20 years.

My question is.....Is there any kind of medication\drug that I can take so that I can ejaculate each time I have sex.

Thank you.
