Hi doctor,

I am a 34 year old male. I am married. I have good general health and good sexual appetite. But, I am suffering from premature ejaculation from the day of my marriage. When I insert, the semen ejaculates within a few seconds. I took a test and consulted a sexologist. He suggested Nano-Leo, Uphold and Ultra D3 at night and Ultra D3 and Spem cure in the morning. When I took these tablets at night I woke up at night 1 o'clock with heavy sweating, nervousness, shivering and indigestion. So, I just stopped all tablets. What can I do now? We not yet had a proper intercourse yet. Please guide us.



Welcome to

I have read and understood your problem.

  • Premature ejaculation is very common problem and is usually not associated with any disease. But, may be due to anxiety and sometimes however may be problem with prostate gland and thyroid hormone.
  • You can learn to control premature ejaculation by doing this exercise. Pull your muscles that you pull at the end of urination for few seconds then release repeat this several times daily.
  • Another is stop-start technique: When you feel that you are going to ejaculate stop the sexual stimulation and divert your mind, the penis will relax. After sometime start the stimulation again and repeat the procedure.
  • Over few months you will gradually increase your ejaculation time. Most often it is a chronic problem; you have to take medicines in between and period off medicine.
  • You can apply Lignocaine gel to head of penis 10 minutes before sex and wipe it off before starting sex.
  • Usually medicines like Dapoxetine 60 mg are given two to three hours before sex, but you have to get a prescription from your doctor. Best wishes.
