Head to toe: A good head to toe exam that includes a digital rectal exam; although this should be postponed until after the blood is drawn for the psa. Drawing the blood after the dre may result in a falsely elevated psa and cause and unnecessary scare for prostate cancer.

How long is it on average before a man ejaculates?

1 doctor answer1 doctor weighed in
Dr. Robert Kwok
Pediatrics 33 years experience
Uncertain: The amount of time between when an average man first inserts his penis into his partner's vagina and when he ejaculates, is uncertain. It may be difficult to find a man willing to be known as an "average" man when it comes to sexual issues. Durations are probably between 20 seconds and 20 minutes depending on the type of activities, his & her time constraints, and the thoughts flowing in his head.

Diet and muscle mass: To gain weight you have to consume more calories than you are burning. Do this in a healthy way though. Don't choose junk or fast food. Keep a well balanced diet and make sure you are getting all the nutrients you need. Don't cut out exercise as it is very good for you. Weight lifting and other muscle building exercises can help you increase your body mass.
