No ejaculation?: If this is a frequent issue, see your primary care MD for a referral to a urologist to check on your male hormone levels. Otherwise, anxiety over performance in sexual situations may impose a psychological inhibition of ejaculation in certain sexual situations. If prior sexual experiences were normal, this is probably treatable.

See urologist: You will need complete evaluation by an urologist to find out why you are having trouble with erection. Premature ejaculation is common. Increasing the frequency of sex and foreplay may be help. Your doc may consider medications to delay ejac but need to make sure it does not interfere with erection.
