Problems while having sex


Q: I find it that when I am having sex, I cannot stay erect for long unless my penis is in the vagina. Also, I have never ejaculated when having sex, neither with or without condoms, although I can ejaculate when masturbating. What are these problems and how can I fix them?

Symptoms:  None

A:   Hello. Welcome to Ask The Doctor.
This is not a problem.
These issues are just Psychological. They will improve with time.
Erectile dysfunction is mostly because of following two reasons:
1. Diabetes.
2. Psychological.
Get your fasting blood sugar checked.
If your blood sugar is under control then you just have to stop thinking about this.
This problem will go on its own.
I hope it helps.
Stay Healthy.
