Hello doctor,

I am 22 years old and facing the issue of erectile dysfunction. I get a rapid and watery discharge. I have been facing this issue for the past 7 to 8 years. I was addicted to chewing tobacco for over two years and then shifted to snuffing. My hair has become very thin, and I am facing hair fall issues. I exercise a lot, but my muscles are loose and not toned. I went to various doctors, got through various tests such as LFT, and I am taking Surbex Z, but there has been no improvement. I have tried going to the gym, running, and exercising, but nothing has worked.



Welcome to

I can understand your concern about your symptoms.

What you feel is called a pre cum or pre-ejaculatory fluid (PEF). It is a normal secretion that comes before you ejaculate so sperm can travel smoothly and get out of the penis. If there is none or reduced PEF, the chances of pregnancy are less. You can control the episodes of PED by controlling your erotic feelings. I am listing various methods to control erotic feelings:

1. Sex education.

2. Physical exercises.

3. Sleep adjustment and good quality of sleep.

4. Healthy and balanced diet.

5. Programming for leisure time.

6. Development of spirituality.

7. Taking a cold bath.

Regarding erection issues, you may have erectile dysfunction. The reason for erectile dysfunction (ED) could be:

1. Stress due to work or family-related issues.

2. Depression.

3. Varicocele. An ultrasound scrotum can help diagnose.

4. Fear of failure. Having one episode of ED once may make you feel you will end up with ED.

5. Low self-esteem.

6. Homosexuality.

7. Religious constraints.

8. Smoking and alcohol.

9. Long-term illness – cardiac, thyroid, kidney, or any other disease with long-term medication.

10. Simple vitamin deficiency.

11. Negative attitude towards the partner.

12. Hormonal issue – thyroid issue, low testosterone, or increased prolactin.

13. Long-term drug usage.

14. Diabetes and hypertension.

You need to check the doppler penis, USG (ultrasound) pelvis and scrotum, blood pressure, RBS (random blood sugar), free T3, T4, and TSH (thyroid stimulating hormone), and testosterone.

Please share more details regarding the above reasons, and we can work on diagnosis and treatment. You need to do regular exercise and follow a proper diet. You can perform exercises such as Kegels, squats, yoga, running, or fast walking for 5 minutes. You can consume food such as strawberries, apples, avocados, sweet potatoes, sesame seeds, almonds, garlic, and chocolate.
