New to sex - PE?

Hello Everyone,
I've been browsing these forums for a long time but never really had the courage to post. I'm a 21 year old male student, and have a steady girlfriend.

Recently we've started to have sex, she has been with other guys in the past, but she was my first. The first time we were together I lasted a little over five minutes and I wasn't worried because I hear that's normal and she was very supportive when she realized how bad I felt. The second time was similar.

The third time I lasted about forty-five minutes so I was happy thinking it was just a first time thing, but every time we've tried since then I haven't been able to last more than a couple minutes.. even worse than the first times. I'm starting to get very worried that I am not satisfying my girlfriend and that I could have a health problem that's the cause of these troubles.

I've been to the doctor about two dozen times in the past two or three years and been told I have a urinary tract infection each time and it goes away for a short while each time and then comes back. My doctor sent me to a urologist who did a bunch of tests and said there was nothing wrong with me; then basically threw a repeat perscription of antibiotics at me and told me to go away. This was about a year ago and I haven't been back since, though I feel as if I still have the infection. Could this be a related problem?

Thanks for taking the time to read my post and I appreciate any help that is forthcoming.

My exH used to have the same problem, the only thing that ever helped was when he was on Lexapro-which is an anti-depressant. It made ejaculation a bit more difficult to achieve for him and he lasted quite a bit longer. Maybe if you get depressed you could give it a try!

Look into how long the average encounter really is-not the porn version.

Do a little research and you'll see that most sexual encounters don't last for 45 minutes. 3-7 is much more normal. There is an evolutionary reason for this- what animal could afford to have sex for 30 minutes in the wild and not worry about predators, etc?
