Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

I am a 29-year-old male. I am a virgin. On masturbation for the past seven years, my erection fell without stimulation and is gone quickly. But I get it easily. Also, it has shrunk 2 inches when erect. Please help.


Welcome to icliniq.com.

I understand your concern.

First, I assure you that when an individual is masturbating, he is considered to be fine. I need some clarification on the second point. Please clarify the following:

1. Whether the erection is spontaneous and during what time.

2. Any relationship of erection to masturbating.

3. Your BMI (body mass index) and any increase in body weight now.

I think that with this information, I can guide you better.
