Hello doctor,

I am 21 years old. I am attracted to my girl and we have been having sex since last year. She is also my first partner. Some days we have great sex, where I will insert my cum twice inside her and my penis tends to stay hard. For the past month, I have not been hard enough and it has become difficult to go for rounds, and also I am letting the cum inside her easily within a minute of inserting. How can we engage in longer sessions of intercourse? How to get that hardness? I do not think I am under anxiety. Please help.



Welcome to icliniq.com.

Sometimes due to physiological and psychological reasons one might get reduced hardness or might have early ejaculation this is absolutely normal. But if these issues persist then proper treatment is needed. For poor erection, I suggest to take erection drugs like Sildenafil (Sildenafil Citrate) or Tadalafil (Croscarmellose Sodium, Hydroxypropyl Cellulose) can be used. The drugs are safe to use and are free of serious side effects. These drugs help in a strong and hard erection. For premature ejaculation, Dapoxetine (Dapoxetine Hydrochloride) proves as a good drug. Please consult a doctor for a proper opinion and prescription of these drugs. I hope I have cleared all your doubts.

Thank you.
