Sorry for your experience. What's happening to your husband is called "premature ejaculation". You can read more about it online. Premature ejaculation (PE) is when ejaculation happens sooner than a man or his partner would like during sex. Occasional PE is also known as rapid ejaculation, premature climax or early ejaculation. PE might not be a cause for worry. It can be frustrating if it makes sex less enjoyable and impacts relationships. The good thing about it is that it is curable. You have discussed it with your husband in a friendly way, then find a doctor to help you out.
How can one conceived twins ?
Dr. Dara Abiodun

Medical Doctor

If you want to increase your chances of getting pregnant with twins, it’s important to understand how they are conceived.

There are two different types of twins:

Identical: formed when one egg is fertilised by one sperm. The egg then divides into two separate embryos. Identical twins might share a placenta and an amniotic sac or the twins might share a placenta and each have separate amniotic sacs. Genetically, the two babies are identical.
Non-identical: formed from two separate eggs, fertilised by two separate sperm. Non-identical twins have their own placenta and their own unique genetic composition. Factors that influence your chances of getting pregnant with twins are family history, Ethnicity, Several pregnancies and Age. Other factors are diet and Medication. Generally, Women who use fertility drugs and IVF are more likely to have multiples
What causes milky white discharge from my vagina?
As long as the milky white discharge does not have an odour, it’s most likely a sign of typical vaginal health. However, if the colour of the discharge develops a white-gray shade and a strong fishy odour, the discharge may be a sign of an infection.

Common symptoms of bacterial vaginosis include milky white and gray discharge with a strong, bad odour.

Black period blood and vaginal discharge may look frightening, but it isn’t a cause of concern at all times. You may notice black coloured vaginal discharge throughout your menstrual cycle, particularly at the beginning of your periods.

Black period blood is blood that takes more time to leave your uterus and gets oxidized in the process. This may make this blood darker in colour. Hence, it appears as a dark brown or black period blood. This blood often has as a resemblance to coffee grounds.

However, in some cases, you should see your doctor for black coloured vaginal discharge. So if you're sure, please see your doctor as soon as possible.
