Hi doctor,

I have a problem with early discharge, and some times I do not get erections. Please help.



Welcome to

I can understand your concern about the sex issue. Early ejaculation or premature ejaculation has many reasons.

1. Decreased sensation of the penis can be due to infection, diabetes, spinal injury, recent masturbation.

2. Stress due to work or family-related, or night duties.

3. Varicocele.

4. Fear of failure, having one episode of ED once may make you feel you will end up with ED.

5. Low self-esteem (chronic masturbation).

6. Smoking and alcohol.

7. Long term illness like cardiac disease, thyroid disease, kidney disease, and any other disease with long term medication.

8. Negative attitude towards your partner.

Kindly share more details so we can work on diagnosis and management. For a temporary solution, you can use Duralast plus (Dapoxetine Hydrochloride).

Thank you doctor,

I have a fear of failure, and not able to stand for more than two minutes. I can make only five to six push, then I discharge. Please help me. What can I do? What dose of Duraplus tablet should I take, and how many days can I take?
