Resolved Question:

I have some concerns about my ejaculations.
In a sexual intercourse I can only have not more than 2 or 3 ejaculations, spaced by about 30 minutes each. And each time it takes just 5 minutes to get an ejaculation. Is it considered normal? should I be able to have more ejaculations to be considered healthy? Should they take more than five minutes?
My sperm is not ejected out with force, but just come out slowly. Is all this considered normal?

Hello

Daniel Sheibley, MD :

No this is perfectly normal.

Daniel Sheibley, MD :

Your body's seminal vesicles and prostate have limited amount of secretions to provide for ejaculation and have to build up more over time which is why you're limited to that number.

Daniel Sheibley, MD :

The spacing out of them is normal physiology called refractory period.

Daniel Sheibley, MD :

That your body needs the arousing stimulus to cease for a while and your body get back to baseline (reset itself if you will) before any further stimulation can produce an erection.

Daniel Sheibley, MD :

Totally normal what you described.

Daniel Sheibley, MD :

Did I answer your question to satisfaction?

Customer:

Even the speed of ejection is normal? I read somewhere that it can be 40 miles per hour.

Daniel Sheibley, MD :

No you're perfectly within the normal range of things.

Customer:

Ok, thanks
