Erectile Dysfunction (ED)
Different Sort of Problem
Hi I am now 57 years old. Up until I was 48 I wanted sex 3 to 4 times a day every day. My wife had a serious problem and was put on a drug to curb her anxiety. Since taking this drug her libido has gone from wanting sex 3 to 4 times per day to maybe once per month. When we were having sex previously I would last maybe 15 or 20 minutes. Now, I feel I am shrinking as I used to be around 7 1/2 inches and now I am lucky it is 4 inches when erect and only last about 1 minute. I am on blood pressure medication and have put on considerable weight due to back and knee injury about 5 years ago. Is there something I can do to get my size and libido back in sinc as well as getting hers back for her. In my mind I would like sex more often but I don`t feel I can perform anymore so why bother? Please help
Your questions are many and can not be answered with the scope of this communication. However, I will try to make you understand some of your problems. 1) It takes two to tango. Therefore, if your wife has loss of interest then you both will miss on sexual pleasures. She needs to see an expert. 2) The size of an organ won't change. However, lack of adequate blood circulation, loss of elasticity of the corporal body and excessive pubic fat pad causing the shaft to retract are some of the few reasons of elusion of reduced penile size. 3) Premature ejaculation is a treatable condition. You should discuss this with your urologist.
