    Hi Leanin,

     

    it sounds like your body is peforming exactly as it is supposed to. You get excited, you climax and then your body rests. Is it possible you think you are experiencing premature ejaculation? Do you think you are climaxing too quickly? If that is the case, there is alot of information online.  

     

    Now online sites are great resources for information to be able to ask all the right questions when it's time to see your doctor, but they can not take the place of your doctor's sound medical advice. If you think you are having a medical issue that should be addressed, you should see your doctor.

      

    You can read about premature ejaculation here. There are some listed symptoms and causes. There is also a section here about prevention and treatment. Although there is no real prevention for premature ejaculation, there are some suggestions here.

      

    Dr Owens at Sexualhealth.com also had this to say about premature ejaculation, "Meanwhile you can masturbate, if you want to. This is a very good way of improving your erections, and there are several exercises you can do in order to lengthen the time before you ejaculate. You can read about these exercises on our page dedicated to rapid ejaculation or in the chapter called "Developing Ejaculatory Control" in the book, The New Male Sexuality by Bernie Zilbergeld. I can highly recommend this book to you. "  You can read the rest of the article here.

     

    I hope this helps. Please stay in touch and let us know how you are doing!
