Hello doctor,

My penis is in erection stage 5 inches, so is it normal? Secondly, recently I got married but I am not able to enter due to early ejaculation within 1 minute.

Size of 5 inch is absolutely normal and is in fact above the average penis size of most of the males. So no need to worry. Immediately after marriage due to lack of experience a lot of males suffer premature ejaculation and they ejaculate even on touching the vagina. This is normal, just do not lose confidence. Medicines like SSRIs like Dapoxetine can be used to delay the ejaculation time. You can talk with your doctor for prescription of this drug.

Thank you doctor,

Can I take Dapoxetine or any other medicines you will recommend? As I have strong desire but due to premature ejaculation, I am unable to enjoy it fully. So, kindly advise me the medicine with its taking procedure. If possible kindly send me prescription so that it is easy for me to buy.

Yes, Dapoxetine would definitely help you. You can take Dapoxetine (Depstar/ Duralast) 30 mg tablet about one hour before intercourse. This will help to prolong the ejaculation time. This can be used on SOS basis too.
