Subj: Erection problems at 21
Hi, I am only 21 and I am having erection problems already. I can get an erection no problem but I can't seem to keep it. I just loose it in the middle of sex. It is very frustrating and it is effecting my relationship with my girlfriend. What can I do. Do you think Kegels exercises will help me? Should I take something like Viagra? I was a virgin up until 20 years old. I lost my virginity to the girl I am still dating. I have been having this problem throughout our whole relationship. It has been 7 months. Please help me. I don't know what to do.
AskDocWeb: In order of preference, we would try the Kegel exercises first, then an herbal solution, and use drugs like Viagra as a last resort.
Subj: Quitting training
Will I lose my increased pc muscle strength after quitting the training soon or will it maintain?
AskDocWeb: Like any other muscle, it needs exercise to stay in shape. And this is an exercise you may want to continue long-term. It will help you avoid wearing diapers when you get old.
Subj: Flexing PC muscles
Isn't it inevitable for your buttocks to move while flexing your PC? They seem to be directly connected to the rectum. I cannot flex my own PC muscles without my buttocks moving slightly.
AskDocWeb: That only means that you haven't yet learned to separate the movements. You have four fingers and a thumb directly connected to your hand. And yet with practice, you can move any one of them without moving the others. It does take practice.
Subj: The answer
I really appreciate that you guys are sharing these info. I really find it so useful... I have problems with my sex life, and I think this is the answer.
Subj: Useful for erectile dysfunction
Kegals exercise is very useful for erectile dysfunction. After doing it for 3 months I gain size and stamina. It's amazing. Thanks for kegals.
Subj: When to flex the pc muscle
While having sex, do you continuously flex the pc muscle or do you only flex the muscle when you are about to have an orgasm?
AskDocWeb: It depends on what you want to accomplish. Why not find out what happens when you flex at different times during lovemaking. We suggest you have fun experimenting with it.
Will kegels exercise tighten the vagina?
AskDocWeb: Yes, that is the main reason that most women do them.

This has been a great read. I have been doing kegels for a little more than a month now. Both for getting a better erection and lasting longer. I have had sexual problems after taking anti-depressive drugs. After exactly a month, I could feel a major difference and would go on for sex for 20 to 30 minutes rather than 5 to 10. But this week everything started going wrong. I was premature more so than ever. Now I'm very concerned and trying to understand what is happening. I fear I may have over done it. My usual exercises are 3 times a day 15-20 quick reps plus one time 15-20 reps where I hold the contraction for 15 seconds. Thanks for the help.
AskDocWeb: Once you have the muscles built up doing kegels once a day is enough to maintain them. If you are currently on medication then you may want to discuss this with your doctor. Sometimes being premature is the result of focusing on your pleasure instead of your partner. When you delay your gratification by taking the time to give pleasure to your partner you build up your response potential. This increases the overall pleasure for both partners.
My whole body becomes stiff
Hi I have been doing kegels muscle for some time but i don't know whether i am doing it correctly. when ever i do these exercises sitting my whole body becomes stiff. My shoulders and legs become stiff as a result of this i am felling pain in my shoulders and thighs. I am unable to do kegels without making the body stiff. Should i feel any movement near my penis while doing kegels. While sitting as my buttocks region is fully compressed i am unable to know whether i am doing kegels or not.
AskDocWeb: If you notice that your body is becoming stiff, STOP. That is a sign that you haven't followed directions. Go for a walk and imagine reading the directions immediately before urinating.
I learnt about the Kegel a few years ago and began flexing them as suggested. So far I can orgasm without ejaculating and losing my erection but the orgasm is usually intense unlike when ejaculating and having an orgasm at the same time. I am also able to maintain a real hard erection for long.
well these exercises really tighten up the ***** wall vagina tighter?,?
AskDocWeb: Yes, that's part of the reason why so many women do kegels on a regular basis. See Kegels for Women.
I'm having a hard time doing the kegel exercises on my own, is there anything I can buy to help me be able to exercise those muscles easier.
AskDocWeb: There is for women but for men it is a matter of developing self-awareness as well as muscle control.
