HASK THE SEXPERT
DR MAHINDER WATSA

1 Whenever my wife and I try to have sex, my penis goes from erect to flaccid as soon as I try to put a condom on. Sometimes, I experience an erection, but only for five seconds. Naturally, it is difficult to penetrate. Can you outline what would remedy the situation?

Practice by wearing a condom over the erect penis during masturbation. After some time, you will develop more tolerance. Should you not improve within six months, both of you should visit a gynaecologist. You may try to have sex seven days prior to menstruation (without a condom). Also, insert a vaginal tablet (especially prepared for insertion into the vagina) 15 minutes prior to intercourse.


2 Is it true that frequent sex may delay menopause? What is the average age at which ladies arrive at this stage? I have been told that women (around the age of

50) may menopause sooner if they reduce their frequency of sex. Is this true? Do food habits, physical exercise and daily routine play a role in the onset of this state?

Menopause is permanent cessation of menstruation and implies that the woman can no longer bear children. A woman is considered to have reached menopause when she has not menstruated for six months to a year. Most women reach menopause between the age of 45 and 55, depending upon health and sexual ability. Menopause may even enhance the enjoyment of sex in later years. It is true that menopause may be delayed by regular sex. The most common symptom of menopause is what’s called ‘hot flush’ — heat that spreads across the body and may occur two to five years prior to menopause. A woman may have visible ‘flushing’, which may start at her chest and rise up to her neck, face and head. More details are available on the internet
