Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

I am a 27 years old unmarried male. I am a diabetic and a high BP patient. I have some queries regarding sexual health.

1. I use to masturbate daily as I am habituated to it. Is it harmful? If not how many times in a day I can do so?

2. Will it hamper my sex life? Does it lead to erectile dysfunction or premature ejaculation, etc?

3. Can you suggest me any Ayurvedic remedies to increase my sex drive, and to maintain hard erection, and to produce healthy sperms?

4. Actually I feels that for my age, weight, and height the size of my penis is too small. It is two and a half inches in the flaccid stage and almost five inches while erect. Can you please provide me any Ayurvedic remedies to enlarge the size of my penis? I have heard about the penile massage for improving its size. If so please suggests any ayurvedic oil for massage.

Medicines I am using ar present are Obimet SR 1 gm, Glycomet GP 0.5, Ace Revelol 25/2.5 mg, and Rozavel 5 mg. I have sent the images of my flaccid penis. Please let me know about its shape and size and provide suggestions to make it better.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

You are definitely in need of a healthy life style. As you have not mentioned whether you are suffering from type 2 diabetes mellitus or type 1 diabetes mellitus. But looking at the medication mentioned by you, I am considering it type 2 diabetes mellitus. Other associated problems like hypertension also suggest me to think of lifestyle-associated disorders.

Your three problems (diabetes, hypertension, and sexual health) can be sorted out by working on four points. They are diet, exercise, medication, and stress. Work on these and you will be able to successfully deal with your problem. If you see carefully, you will notice that your doctor is helpful to you only in advising your medication and other things (diet, exercise, and stress) need to be tackled by you. So, health is in your hands and not in the doctor's hands. So, please work on it. For your height, you are overweight. Try to reduce your weight minimum by 22.05 Ibs. It will definitely benefit you in all aspects of health including diabetes, hypertension, and sexual health. Physical activity is a must. A minimum of one hour of walking or jogging or yoga or gym or any other modality of exercise five days a week is recommended. 5) Decrease excess calorie intake. Sweets, fats, junk food, and bakery products need to be avoided. Decreasing salt intake is a must for your hypertension.

There is nothing wrong with your penis size. And a bigger penis size does not mean that it will result in happier sexual life. Masturbating daily, in general, will not result in any problems as such. There is no standard frequency of masturbation. It depends upon your physical health and wishes. It will not result in erectile dysfunction or premature ejaculation. But your other health issues make you prone to such problems. Sexual problems in the majority of cases are not real physical problems but are a result of unexplained fear, and insecurity. In my opinion, this is the most important aspect while dealing with sexual issues. Feel free in talking to your doctor about such issues. I do not think that you need any medication for sexual health. Do not be carried away by advertisements. Medicines are not required and will not benefit you. Optimize your blood sugar and blood pressure. Continue with the medicines which you mentioned in your query. Come out of unnecessary stress. Fix a healthy routine for yourself by focusing on the above-mentioned points.

I hope this helps.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
