Hello doctor,

My wife is not satisfied with our sex life. I have two kids. Unless I stimulate myself with porn or masturbating action or licking my nipples, I do not get an erection. I have weak libido, and I am unable to sustain an erection for a long time or continuously and also ejaculate prematurely in around 2 minutes.

My testosterone count is 248.7 ng/dl. My height is 179 cm, and I weigh 103 kg. I am trying to get fit, but I am very stressed. I visited a sexologist, and he examined my genitals and said it was normal. It is 3 inches while normal and 5 inches while erect. My questions are:

1. Should I go for testosterone replacement therapy, or will something else help?

2. Can you let me know where I can avail of such treatment? Do you have any recommendations? What is the expense, and how many days it takes?

3. I read online there are many suggested therapies and side effects. Which one do you recommend?



Welcome to

You have erectile dysfunction and obesity, and your testosterone is low. It can be corrected by medicines. If medications do not help, then you only have to go for other options. Do not trust everything which is written online. It is not serious but complicated. Counseling, lifestyle modification, and drugs together only will be effective.
