Premature Ejaculator: This is a very frustrating situation for both the man and his partner. There are two common approaches. One is to actually start the man on a low dose medication that has a side effect of prolonging ejaculation. And there are plenty of sex therapists and other experts that can work with your partner on practicing how to prolong the time it takes to ejaculate...To learn some techniques....

Yes: See a urologist after examination and work up will help you to over come your problems.

Yes: A lack of a firm erection when we want it to be solid in a young man is significant. Premature ejaculation could be an indicator of anxiety or stress or performance anxiety. I would suggest consulting with an urologist to rule in/out physical health issues. Conferring with your pcp first is reasonable.
