Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

I got married three years ago. My sexual health was good, but in one year, I got premature ejaculation, and I did not have the feeling to have sex. My testosterone level is low, and my prolactin hormone is high. Please suggest what is best for me.

Kindly help.


Welcome to icliniq.com.

I understand your concern.

Based on the information you provided, it sounds like you may be experiencing a combination of sexual health concerns. Here are some suggestions:

  1. Address low testosterone: Low testosterone, also known as hypogonadism, can contribute to decreased libido and erectile dysfunction. Your healthcare provider may recommend testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) to help restore normal testosterone levels and improve your sexual function. TRT involves taking testosterone supplements in the form of pills, patches, gels, or injections.
  2. Manage premature ejaculation: Premature ejaculation is a common sexual health concern that can be treated with various techniques and therapies. Your healthcare provider may recommend behavioral therapies such as the stop-start technique or squeeze technique to help delay ejaculation. Medications such as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) may also be prescribed to help manage premature ejaculation.
  3. Address high prolactin: High prolactin levels, also known as hyperprolactinemia, can contribute to decreased libido and erectile dysfunction. Your healthcare provider may recommend medication to help lower prolactin levels and improve your sexual function.
  4. Manage stress: Stress can contribute to sexual health concerns such as erectile dysfunction and decreased libido. Consider incorporating stress-reducing techniques such as meditation, yoga, or therapy into your daily routine to help manage stress levels.

Remember that everyone's sexual health is unique, and what is best for you will depend on the underlying cause of your symptoms. It is essential to work closely with your healthcare provider to develop a personalized treatment plan that meets your individual needs.

I hope this information will help you.
