Question: Inhibited and / or Retarded Ejaculation???

 lilpunkin - Mon Sep 21, 2009 2:03 pm

my husband has a hard time ejaculating if we try to have sex after he wakes up. his words are "everything is working, but release button is still asleep". if we wait a few hours he is fine. is this a form of Inhibited and / or Retarded Ejaculation? is there a simple way to remide it or do we need to see a doctor? its not a serious problem but it worries us and we would just like to fix it. he is a little overweight? would that have an effect on it? thank you for taking the time to read this.

User avatar Hello,Delayed ejaculation or retarded ejaculation is less common than premature ejaculation.The mehanisms behind delayed ejaculation are poorly understood and thus much more difficult to treat.Anxiety states are the likely cause.Since your husband has the problem only in the morning and then is fine is a good sign that nothing grossly is wrong.One method is to masturbate till near ejaculation,then insert and continue- to get the ejaculation.If it persists do get a consultation from a psychotherapist.Best wishes.
