Hi, I am a 32-year-old married man. Of late, I am noticing that I ejaculate too soon. I wanted to know if there are any medicines I can take to last longer in bed?
Firstly, you need to be clear that most men last just 3-5 minutes after penetration. While there are many medicines like Viagra which can improve blood flow to your penis, they are mostly used to treat erectile dysfunction and not premature ejaculation. You should consult your doctor first before trying any of them.
But, before you take medicines, you should try certain techniques like squeeze technique and stop-start technique that has helped many people last longer. Even doing kegel exercises will help strengthen your pelvic floor muscles and increase the time it takes for you to ejaculate. You should also try and eat foods like bananas, strawberries and eggs that will help improve the quality of your sex life.
Also, be wary of ads that tell you that there are medicines that will help you last longer. Even if these ads may appear on reputed publications, they seldom prove to be useful.
