Premature ejaculation is the leading sexual problem for men of all ages. Premature ejaculation is defined as “the condition wherein a man ejaculates sooner than he or his partner expects or desires him to.” Premature ejaculation can lead to many relationship problems and embarrassments for the man. There are however, ways in which you can control the condition and have better sex with your partner.
The cause of premature ejaculation can be many things, but there are treatments that may help delay ejaculation and even cure it completely. There are various psychological and physiological reasons a man may reach orgasm too soon. Common psychological causes include: stress, depression, aging, and performance anxiety. Other physical causes include: prostate problems, thyroid issues, an overactive or under active thyroid gland. An overactive thyroid can result in premature ejaculation as well.
To help delay ejaculation, there are several methods that can be tried, such as: intercourse positions, masturbation before intercourse, using condoms, eating beforehand, and many more. These methods can work for some people, but may not for others. As mentioned above, the psychological reason for premature ejaculation can be controlled, while others cannot. The use of condoms will decrease sensation, therefore minimize chances of orgasm for the wearer.
Sometimes it is hard to determine if the intercourse position is one of the causes of premature ejaculation, or another problem. Some men ejaculate before even reaching the climax point, while others ejaculate just before they climax. Usually, the first ejaculated orgasm produces a feeling of “orgasmic inevitability” which allows the partner to reach climax quickly to stop that feeling. If this is the case, then either the penis was improperly stimulated (isn’t being stroked correctly), or the partner did something to prevent orgasm. In this case, the partner should take responsibility, as it would help resolve the problem.
Stress can also cause premature ejaculation. Men who are troubled by long-term stress and/or depression may experience low sexual performance as a side effect. Premature ejaculation caused by stress has many common solutions, such as: reducing stress by practicing yoga or meditation, increasing physical activity and exercise, reducing alcohol consumption, and eating healthy, which is part of why men should practice kegels when facing PE. In addition, many men with relationship problems choose to seek help from their doctors and/or therapists, as these can also improve sexual performance. In addition, certain drugs have been known to cause premature ejaculation, such as: antihistamines, amphetamines, and antidepressants.
Premature Ejaculation, although not physically life threatening, can create a number of emotional problems in the relationship. Therefore, it’s important for partners to work together when they encounter sexual dysfunction. In addition, if premature ejaculation is a problem in the marriage, it’s important to seek counseling and do what is necessary to make the relationship a better place to live in. If your partner would like to improve his or her sexual performance, seek advice from a therapist.
Premature ejaculation (PE) is perhaps the most commonly reported premature ejaculation condition. It is where the man ejaculates before he or his partner is satisfied during sex. A recent study looking at 500 married couples from 5 different European countries discovered that the average amount of time taken to ejaculate over sex was 5-and a-half seconds. But it is up to each individual couple to determine if they are happy with the amount of time spent during sex; there is no defined definition as to how much sex should last. What a lot of people seem to be confused about though, is whether or not PE is a normal part of sexuality or whether PE is a disorder.
For years it has been thought that premature ejaculation was the result of low levels of certain neurotransmitters in the brain. These were believed to be responsible for the pleasurable sensations experienced during intercourse. However, further studies have shown that the lack of serotonin and other neurotransmitters is in fact, more likely the cause of premature ejaculation. This makes sense though, as depression, anxiety, and stress can also cause feelings of discomfort, itchiness, and sensitivity.
Premature ejaculation (PE) is divided into two main categories; premature ejaculation syndrome (PEPS) and pre-ejaculatory response syndrome (PRRS). The first is a neurological problem, while the second is a psychological issue. With the former, nerve impulses are interrupted which causes the body to release excessive amounts of hormones such as adrenaline and cortisol. When these hormones reach the prostate gland, the gland responds by stimulating the penis and spongy tissues lining the penis head. With pre-ejaculatory response syndrome, an individual may ejaculate before his partner has even entered the bedroom. Many experts agree that with early ejaculatory response syndrome, the lack of sexual stimulation leads to an erection that is not very firm and therefore, premature ejaculation occurs.
There are many ways to deal with these relationship problems, and one way to help couples who have premature ejaculation is through couples therapy. Couples who have this condition are often unsure of what to do for their situation. It may seem overwhelming and frustrating but there are many resources out there that can provide support. Couples who suffer from anxiety may want to seek support groups or anxiety medication. Others may want to seek cognitive behavioral therapy, and there are many resources available for those looking for this type of treatment.
Premature ejaculation can be treated if a man seeks the help that he needs. If the cause of his sexual dysfunction is a psychological issue such as anxiety, depression, stress, or chemical imbalance, then the individual may only need to work on his psychological issues. If the man’s sexual dysfunction is caused by physical dysfunction, then the man will need to see his doctor to receive treatment. For some men, the causes of premature ejaculation can be something as simple as a physical condition that can be easily remedied through treatment. Other men, however, may have deeper issues at play.
Premature ejaculation can be embarrassing for a man, making it difficult for him to function sexually. Because this dysfunction can also lead to other serious conditions such as psychological distress, if it is left untreated, it can lead to further distress down the road. If you or your partner experiences this condition, then you should seek help. Premature ejaculation does not have to be a part of your partner’s life.
