Refractory period in men
I am a 27-year-old happily married man. I am very faithful to my wife. I wish to know that how long after one ejaculation can a healthy man get a second good erection? Can second erection be as good as the first one?
When a man is having sex, his ‘endorphin’ level is very high. Almost immediately after ejaculation, he goes through a ‘refractory phase’ in which he loses his erection, he crashes and all his systems gear down. The refractory period changes from person to person. However after the refractory period, which could be twenty minutes to a few hours, one can get an equally good erection once again. The level of second erection depends on the level of excitement and stimulation.
Matching blood groups before marriage
How important and medically relevant is it to match blood groups of the couple before getting married?
Blood group matching before marriage is given undue importance by some ill-informed people. It carries importance only to the point, that if ‘Rh factors’ of both the partners are not matching, it can be harmful for the second child of the couple. However if such incompatibility is known beforehand, precaution may be taken to avoid any harm to the second child. An injection of “Anti D Immunoglobulin” to the mother immediately after the birth of her first child (or first abortion) is all that is required to prevent any harm to the subsequent pregnancy.
