Hi doctor,

During masturbation I just rub the tip of the penis and not the entire penis. Is it a wrong way of doing? I do not get excited during sex and unable to ejaculate. Only, rubbing the tip of the penis gives me excitement. Also, two weeks ago, I have undergone circumcision as my foreskin did not retract. Before circumcision too, I have the same problem. Please help.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • The tip is the most sensitive part of the penis, hence gives most excitement. There is nothing wrong in rubbing the tip during masturbation.
  • You have gone circumcision two weeks back, so you should avoid masturbation for another 7 to 10 days.
  • If you are unable to ejaculate, then it may be due to stress. But, to exclude physical cause you need to do blood tests Hb (hemoglobin), TC (total count), DC (differential count), postprandial sugar, prolactin, TSH (thyroid-stimulating hormone) and testosterone.

Thank you doctor,

My TSH is 5.4, little above normal and testosterone is 4.24. I took testosterone injections, but sperm motility decreased. So, my doctor asked me to stop the injections. Other parameters are normal. I do not feel excited with my wife. But, I somehow get arousal by masturbation and do sex. Is there any other way to get ejaculation during sex as I am planning for a baby?

Hi,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

  • Do other tests too. You can use a vibrator or keep the tip of the penis inside the vagina and masturbate the shaft.
  • As you do not feel excited with your wife, there is some psychological issue. Try to masturbate with your wife's help to desensitize from psychological inhibition.
