Question: Unable to ejaculate
|a_six - Sun Oct 07, 2007 4:30 pm||
My boyfriend is 35 and since we have been having sex he ejaculates on a sporatic basis. Most of the time he does not and when he does it takes hours, and I become very sore. It is sometimes several weeks (3-8) between his ejaculations, and he told me that he has had problems masturbating recently. He has no problem keeping an erection, infact it will stay hard for hours at a time when we have sex.
He has told me that this is a problem he has been dealing with for 2 years, but has never been to see a doctor. He has had no surgeries, and is no family history that I know of. He takes no prescription, or over the counter meds. He quit smoking cigaretts and that seemed to make things better, but now that he is smoking on a regular basis things are the same.
I was wondering if it could be the cigaretts or if it is the fact that he is a long-term weed smoker, or if there could be something else wrong? He has told me that he has cut way back on the weed, but still does it. Should I insist that he go and see a urologist?
Any insight would be helpful.

There are many possible reasons for this problem, both physically and psychologically (which is not to say that he is making this problem up).
I would recommend he start by seeing a urologist. It is important to get a thorough history and physical examination to help guide the work up process.
