Common Sexual Problems in India

Premature Ejaculation (PME)

Premature ejaculation occurs when a man ejaculates sooner during sexual intercourse than average expected time. Premature ejaculation is a common sexual complaint. As many as 1 out of 3 men say they experience this problem at some time. As long as it happens infrequently, it's not cause for concern.

toil and pain can procure him some great pleasure. To take a trivial example, which of us ever undertakes laborious physical exercise, except to obtain some advantage from it? But who has any right to find fault with a man who chooses to enjoy a pleasure that has no annoying consequences, or one who avoids a pain that produces no resultant pleasure?

Diagnostic criteria for premature ejaculation if you:
  • Always or nearly always ejaculate within one minute of penetration
  • Are unable to delay ejaculation during intercourse all or nearly all of the time
  • Feel distressed and frustrated, and tend to avoid sexual intimacy as a result

Both psychological and biological factors can play a role in premature ejaculation. Although many men feel embarrassed to talk about it, premature ejaculation is a common and treatable condition. Medications, counseling and sexual techniques that delay ejaculation — or a combination of these — can help improve sex for you and your partner.

Erectile Dysfunction (ED)

Erectile dysfunction (impotence) occurs when a man can no longer get or keep an erection firm enough for sexual intercourse. Having erection trouble from time to time isn't necessarily a cause for concern. But if erectile dysfunction is an ongoing problem, it may cause stress, cause relationship problems or affect your self-esteem.

Talk with your doctor about erectile dysfunction, go in for an evaluation. Problems getting or keeping an erection can be a sign of a medical condition that needs treatment, such as heart disease or poorly controlled diabetes. Treating an underlying problem may be enough to improve your erectile dysfunction.

If treating an underlying condition doesn't help your erectile dysfunction, medications or other direct treatments may help.
