Premature Ejaculation is when a man ejaculates prematurely (surges) before sexual intercourse. It is a very common premature ejaculation condition. A recent study involving 500 male couples found that the average time for premature ejaculation was approximately 5-and a-half minutes prior to intercourse starting. Not surprisingly, many males suffer with this from time to time without ever being able to pinpoint the cause of their problem.
Premature ejaculation can be treated by a variety of means. SSRIs, or Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors, are usually the preferred method of treatment because they are known to target the brain directly and produce long-lasting results. Common ingredients in these medications are fluoxetine, sertraline, and tricyclics. Many men find it difficult to stick to the prescribed dosage of these medications and some may experience side effects such as nausea, drowsiness, headache, and even weight gain.
Premature ejaculation can also be treated with the use of behavioral therapy. This form of treatment involves talking about your feelings and behaviors, discussing why you have premature ejaculation, and then having personalized exercises designed to strengthen your PC muscle. These are all done through your own family therapist or even your doctor. These sessions can take anywhere from four to eight weeks and should be performed weekly in order to make sure that the desired changes will take effect. Some males have also had success with hypnosis as a form of behavioral therapy. This can also be done in conjunction with medication.
If nothing else works, then the next option would be the use of condoms. Unfortunately, condom failures aren’t the only cause of premature ejaculation. For instance, many males will experience early ejaculation if they are unfamiliar or aren’t comfortable with how their body works. Through exercises, you can learn how to control how your body feels during intercourse and thus, improve your sex life. By practicing techniques such as Kegel exercises, or penis milking, you can learn to prolong your erection, enhance your sensation, and eliminate any stress related to premature ejaculation.
One of the most common causes of premature ejaculation is anxiety. While there is no clear-cut correlation between anxiety and the number of episodes that you have, it has been proven that anxiety can significantly reduce sexual arousal. When your body senses that you are tense or anxious, you become distracted and have less control over your erection. Controlling your breathing and relaxing can help you overcome your anxiety related health problem.
SSRIs – Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors can play an important role in controlling premature ejaculation. Because they are commonly used for depression, anxiety, and other similar conditions, there is a good chance that your doctor will prescribe these drugs for you. Common side effects include nervousness, nausea, dizziness, and headaches. Talk to your doctor about the possible benefits of SSRIs and whether or not they might be a suitable treatment for your erectile dysfunction.
Premature Ejaculation is a kind of sexual disorder that happens when a male has an ejaculation and releases (ejacules) semen longer than he or his mate wants. It can happen just before or soon after penetration during sexual intercourse. Premature ejaculation (PE) in males is usually caused by physiological factors and psychological ones, which are beyond the control of the male. Premature ejaculation can occur because of extreme excitement, stress, anxiety, depression, and medications.
A treatment for premature ejaculation involves a combination of medication (antidepressants), psychotherapy, and lifestyle changes. SSRIs or Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors are commonly prescribed for patients with pre-ejaculatory syndrome. Some antidepressants used for premature ejaculation therapy include clomipramine, escitalopramine, fluoxetine, and fluvoxamine. Some SSRIs have also been developed specifically for this purpose.
The most commonly prescribed SSRI for premature ejaculation therapy is moclobazepine and fluoxetine. Your urologist may also prescribe you some additional drugs if necessary to treat your health problem. Common laboratory tests for identifying PE include total serum testosterone, ejaculation volume, sperm count, and response to anogenital stimulation.
Treatment for premature ejaculation generally takes more than one treatment. It may take several months before the dysfunction is completely treated. In some cases, the dysfunction continues even after one year of follow-up.
PE can be caused by a variety of psychological factors. Premature ejaculation may occur in response to anger, anxiety, pornography, stress, anticipation of orgasm, or sexual trauma. In order to treat your condition, your urologist should identify all possible causes of your ejaculatory problem. Once the urologist has identified all potential causes, your doctor will evaluate all possible treatment options. You may need to undergo PE treatment options that address both your PE symptoms as well as your psychological factors that are causing your PE.
One treatment option that may be recommended is desensitization using topical creams, patches or gel. These treatments gradually expose the penis to increased levels of stimulation until the men’s body becomes desensitized to the stimulus. The last stage of desensitization involves stopping the treatment and allowing the penis to return to its normal level of sensitivity. However, this option may not be appropriate for you if you suffer from chronic PE because it does not address your psychological factors.
If your family doctor diagnosed premature ejaculation, then you may want to discuss with your partner about potential behavioral methods that you both may use to help you cure your condition. For instance, if your partner feels anxious or depressed due to your inability to last longer in bed during intercourse, you may want to talk to your family doctor about antidepressants or mood stabilizers. If you feel that your excessive stimulation is due to psychological factors such as stress, depression or guilt, then you may want to seek counseling with a psychologist or sex therapist. You may also want to discuss with your family doctor about adding stress management into your daily life. This may include losing weight, avoiding alcohol or quitting smoking, getting more exercise or avoiding tobacco use.
If these methods do not work for you, then your condition may require surgery for PE treatment. Your doctor may recommend treating premature ejaculation with either a stop-start penile device called a Maxoderm or a ring that holds firm against the base of the penis. You can get temporary erection by wearing the ring for a few minutes before continuing to bed. If the ring becomes uncomfortable and causes pain during sexual intercourse, then you can switch to wearing it longer before going to bed. However, permanent erection may be only achieved with the use of an erectile dysfunction implant called the Extenze.
