I’m 24, when i am having an entercourse with my partner, I eijaculate in less than a minute,
And later it becomes difficult for me to get an erection for second time.need help

Hi Lovi
1. Use Lavender-Oil or Cream on your penis before intercourse. Also apply a few times per day. It makes your penis less sensitive. If that doesn't work you can try Glove oil mixed with some good neutral oil. CAREFUL: Glove oil is very strong and it takes a minute or more to be fully felt on your penis. It can burn a lot if too strong so make it really weak first and slowly stronger until you feel a very slight burn. Also be very careful using it before intercourse as it might burn your partner if too strong. Talk to her about if you can. If you get it right it makes your penis much less sensitive and you will last longer. 2. Long term you have to strengthen your PC-muscle (Google it). It is the best thing you can do for long lasting sex and good strong erections. Google "Mantak Chia". His books are full of practical tips and excellent. It all works.

What is the best herbal medicine for malaria. Also what is the best herbal medicine for diarrhea
Please help
07 Jun 2019
Not a herbal medicine but you might want to google MMS Drops and how it was discovered by Jim Humble insisting he cured Malaria. I have used them for years and like them and they are safe as long you stick to instructions to the point. Just don't experiment with them like some people.
