Bipolar disorder is an episodic disorder, if you had manic symptoms of bipolar, you may have lost insight and behaved irrationally. Else, in acute psychosis (symptoms similar to schizophrenia), the same would have happened. Surely there are chances of recurrence. Review with psychiatrist regularly. Hope he explained relapse cues, so that you can consult early in case symptoms recur.

There are certain techniques, which can help you to stay longer. Kegel exercise is one of the very popular and effective techniques to control premature ejaculation. These are the exercises of pubococcygeus muscles (pc) muscles. A man can do these exercises anytime and anywhere and no one will even know about it. To identify the muscles of your pelvic floor stop your flow of urine next time you go to urinal. Contract the muscles tightly holding for 10 seconds i. E. Stop urinating in between. Do this thrice a day repeating 10 times. The pc muscles control the urine and semen and firmness of your organ during erection, so keeping them strong will increase ejaculatory control. Even while masturbating or doing intercourse you can practice stop and start i. E. Rub for few thrust then stop for a minute and start rubbing again. Just relax on this; it should go away with some time. Homeopathic medicines are safe and gives wonderful results. Take yohimbinum q 20 drops in half cup of water three times a day. Follow up after 15 days. All said and done, one suggestion: though this is a very sensitive issue, please have a thorough discussion before starting off on some medication on your own. Each body is unique and will respond differently to different formulations. With homeopathy, the aim is to treat the individual holistically instead of just removing the symptoms.

Dear lybrate-user, I find it had to believe that your Cousin's doctor is ignorant of her problem. Some drugs used for Diabetes can give gastrointestinal symptons such as vomitting and cause low sugar levels. I am quite sure you doctor is aware of this. I would encourage you to dicuss this aspect in detail with her doctor. If the fasting and PP blood sugar levels are in normal range without antiglycemic drugs the it is quite like you do not need the drugs. Nevertheless, it is quite likely that you could be a pre-diabetic. Your doctor should be able to prescribe lab tests to determine this and treat the same.

Though erection is good but constant loss of shukra dhatu by masturbation or unnatural sex may lead you to shukra dhatu kshay which by reverse deterioration of other dhatus, may cause health issues sooner than you expect. Need is to take combo of palliative and'vrushya' herbal combos. This will calm the excess urge on slightest stimulation but also nourish the semen.
