I have semen discharged from my penis during sexual foreplay.

Question by Colin:

Hello. I am 35 years old male and I have a sexual problem. It started about 2 months ago. I have huge amount of semen discharging from my penis when I get aroused during foreplay with my girlfriend. After that I lose my erection and unable to continue with intercourse. Even if we have sex before I lose my erection I can’t last long – usually I can last 1-3 minutes. It puts big strain on our relationship, please help!

I used to masturbate but I stopped doing it as I thought it could be the cause of the problem. But it didn’t help. I also have type 1 Diabetes (I was diagnosed with it when I was 12). To manage it I take humalog insulin and lantus. I also take vitamin C 500mg and centrum multi vitamin, 100 mg of fish oil, 5mg of lisinopril and 300mg of wellbutrin daily.

I had my kidneys and urine checked about 1 month ago – they were completely normal. I don’t drink alcohol and I don’t do drugs. I don’t smoke.

Answer:

Hello, Colin. You should realize that as a man with type 1 Diabetes you are likely to suffer from erectile dysfunction at an earlier age, because you have had your Diabetes for a long period of time (since you were 12).

According to numerous medical tests men with type 1 Diabetes in 20% of cases have low testosterone level. So I suggest you to visit your physician and check your testosterone level.

If testosterone levels are OK you should check other possible causes of weak erections. They could be of psychological nature – e.g. stress, depression or anxiety.

Anyway I strongly recommend you to visit your physician to check your testosterone levels because you are in a risk group of lowered testosterone as you have type 1 Diabetes.

The choice of impotence treatment option is up to your doctor.
