Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

I have a premature ejaculation problem. When I am doing foreplay with my girlfriend, it automatically gets ejaculated after four to five minutes. Is it due to my masturbation habit?

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I can understand your concern. I have worked through your attached query in detail. Masturbation is not responsible for your symptoms. Masturbation has no evil effects on your sex life. Premature ejaculation will gradually subside in due course of time. In case if symptoms persist, few medications like Dapoxetine will help. So, that being the case, get a prescription for premature ejaculation and start taking the medication by discussing them with your specialist. Practicing sex regularly will help to overcome premature ejaculation.

The Probable causes

Anxiety.

Differential diagnosis

Performance anxiety.

Probable diagnosis

Premature ejaculation.

Treatment plan

Tablet Dapoxetine.

Preventive measures

Increasing foreplay.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
