Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

I have been masturbating for many years. I used to have a hard erection and sexual satisfaction before. However, the last five to six times, I am not able to get a hard erection, and I also have early ejaculation. Also, I am not having much sexual satisfaction because of this. Can you please suggest me any medications?

Thank you.

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Thank you for consulting us. I understand your concern and will surely help you out. Masturbation is harmful as it can affect memory and erectile function. Therefore, I suggest you get serum testosterone, random blood sugar, and lipid profile done. Also, weight-bearing exercises can boost testosterone levels and enhance erections.

Kindly revert with the test results to guide you better.

Kind regards.
