Question
Doctor,
I am now 22.
I have been masturbating for nearly 7years.
I want to get rid of it.does masturbation leads to premature  ejaculation.
I find that i come earlier than at the initial stages of masturbation.
Now it is within 3minutes.
Please suggest a remedy to increase the time of erection.
Please send a reply asap.

Answer
Peter:

Premature ejaculation is a very common sexual disorder in men.  It is not related to masturbation.  It's a problem of anxiety and control.

Remedies include SSRI type medications and behavioral modification exercises by a certified sex therapist.  Talk to your physician who can direct you to treatment.
