Chances are high that any normal and healthy young man or woman will end up in a sexually active relationship at one point in their lives. Of all those who do, studies have shown that every 3 relationships in 10 have to deal with various limitations brought by premature ejaculation (PE).
This is just a condition and not a disease. The good thing is that with the right help, PE can be easily managed, with behavioral techniques, home remedies, clinical medication and therapies. But what exactly is it and what causes it?
In pretty simple terms, the definition for PE depicts a man’s inability to last satisfactorily in bed. In this case, an ejaculation occurs earlier than either partner can feel the satisfaction hoped for during sexual intercourse. The duration to which a man should last prior to climaxing is not fixed of course. However, professionals agree than sex sessions lasting less than two minutes can be described as premature ejaculations. In some extreme cases, some men will only last for 30 seconds before they can resist an ejaculation.
The causes of PE vary widely. Generally, they will range from psychological factors, biological factors and sometimes physical factors. For example, emotional distress and anxiety will result in the condition. The same case will be for over-sensitive genitals or conditional habits like masturbation. In rare cases will it mean that you have run out of sperm however.
There are non-medication techniques that can successfully help stop PE.
Other than home remedies and tricks discussed above, PE can still be controlled using medication. Going back a bit to a fact I pointed out earlier, PE is not a disease. This means that any medication aiming to treat it will apply an indirect treatment approach.
The most common medication in regards to how to treat PE is erectile dysfunction medications. To set the record clear, PE doesn’t automatically translate into erectile dysfunction, although some forms of it can be treated as ED.
Other medications include certain types of painkillers and medication used to treat stress. As you may already have guessed, any medication mentioned so far is intended to reduce sensitivity by causing numbness. The same effect can be achieved through the use of a special spray or cream. However, you will have to be careful with the brand or type of a spray or cream you are going to use. For best results, go through available reviews for such products before trying them. Get help whenever possible.
About 70% of all cases of PE are caused by over-excitement, stress or emotionally oriented factors. Talking to an expert always proves helpful in one way or the other. It doesn’t have to be some renowned counsellor you are paying a visit to. It can be a friend, a mentor or even your partner. Just get to talk it out. Listen to different views about how to control PE and any available cure of PE you might be directed to.
The problem with premature ejaculation is that it gets worse the more you think about it alone. You will feel angry that you are not performing to your partner’s expectations. The anger will slowly grow into frustration and shame. The next time you are having sex, you will aiming too hard to prove yourself, something that will culminate into even more prematurely occurring ejaculations. Funny enough, you might even find that your partner is not that too much into physical penetrations. It may be that they love fore play or even oral sex more. The bottom line is that talking things out really help. It is the only way you will really know whether help is needed and exactly which form of help you are in need of.
According to findings resulting from data collected on reported cases, women have very differing sexual needs. It is largely the reason as to why the definition for PE is widely altered. For example, a woman may prefer a man who lasts for short periods before ejaculation, but does this many times in a day or night. Another may prefer a man who lasts the longest but just does it once or twice. Learn what your partner likes or dislikes and you will be on the right track on how to control prematurely occurring ejaculations.
Ejaculating prematurely has nothing to do with low sperm count. Someone who lasts 30 seconds in bed will have the much healthy babies another one lasting 15 minutes will. It similarly doesn’t mean that you have developed an erectile dysfunction. This is especially when it occurs in early ages of puberty or first times of having sexual intercourse. In fact, chances are very low that you will not ejaculate prematurely when you are not used to having sexual intercourse.
However, persistently occurring PE can be treated as an erectile dysfunction. It can also lead to forms of infertility. If you were to think about it, it is likely that a relationship will not stay sexually active if PE is not addressed accordingly. This means that either partners or both will walk away or cheat, which is in itself is a form of infertility.
You can choose to learn more on home remedies, tricks and techniques that can help you deal with the condition. You can also approach your doctor if think some underlying condition is causing it. In cases that you feel any form of discomfort any emotional related factor, it is best that you pay a visit to a psychiatrist.
All the same, you will first need to know what best interest your partner. The same goes for you. Learn your strengths and weaknesses. For example, if a touch on your genitals is likely to run chills all over your body, always ensure that you dominate fore plays and oral sex.
