    Sorry to say that a lot of SSRI medications like Fluoxetine can have an effect on ejaculation. I expect you have no problem getting an erection but even that desire might have slackened off. When it comes to ejeaculation it can take longer and cause frustration. Mention it to your GP just so your mind is at rest and the side effect noted. Sorry I couldn't give better news, I know how you feel

    Some SSRI do have this side affect - I had orgasm problems and was switched over from one to Effexor . Effexor didn't have  this effect on me so stuck with it and now withdrawing from it after 10 years and 50 lbs later. You may have to talk to your GP and switch to another. Best of luck.
