Erectile Dysfunction (ED)

Sexual problems

08/31/2007

Question:

I am twenty-two years of age and always climax in like 5 minutes or less. Is this a mental thing (because I think of sex really often) or can this be a physical thing? I just did two surgeries for hernia and I even find it really hard to get an erection after I climax once.

Answer:

5 minutes is right in the normal range. If you are distressed by this time frame, I would suggest that you see a psychologist.
