Every time a man enters climax quicker than he or his partner intended, he ends up feeling like a total loser. According to research, premature ejaculation curses one in three males. Men can feel extremely stressed if their problem with PE persists. The important thing to remember, is that you are not alone. Here, we are going to go through the ways in which PE can be curbed, and you can enjoy a normal sex life.
What is Premature Ejaculation?
In men, premature ejaculation occurs when they reach orgasm and ejaculate too quickly. In other words, climax occurs before a man wants it to happen. Needless to say, this occurs without their control and can cause severe emotional stress. Premature ejaculation may occur either before or just after foreplay or quickly after intercourse.
There are several factors that can contribute towards PE, ranging from psychological, as in, stress and depression, to physical ailments that can aggravate the condition. That said, there is a raft of evidence which suggests that the condition is the result of psychological stressors. Now, that we know just what premature ejaculation is and how it occurs, it’s time to talk about the treatment options. The good news is, there are quite a few treatment options for PE, and the following are some of them:
The doctor is not going to prescribe any medication before first taking a detailed sexual history of the patient to get to a clear diagnosis. While in certain countries, such as the US, there are not officially licensed medications for the treatment of PE, doctors mostly prescribe antidepressants as they have been found to be the most effective in helping delay ejaculation.
Over the past decade, the use of generic medication is also gaining in popularity for its effectiveness in treating conditions such as, Premature Ejaculation (PE) and Erectile Dysfunction (ED). These generic medications are widely being used in many countries, despite having side effects. Some of the side effects that may occur after taking generic PE/ED medication includes, headaches, dizziness, diarrhea, nausea, blurred vision. Special care should be taken while using generic medication as it could lead to severe side effects if the proper dosage recommendations aren’t followed.
Topical treatments for PE are available in multiple forms, such as, creams, gels and sprays. Those men who would rather use external treatment options are more likely to gravitate towards topical drugs. These drugs are applied on the penis just before intercourse and helps reduce stimulation. While topical drugs are effective in delaying ejaculation, prolonged use can result to numbness, and even a loss of erection. The reduced sensitivity in the penis is also unacceptable by some men. Since these topical treatments can also cause numbness in the vagina it is important for men to wash off the topical cream, gel or spray 5 to 10 minutes before any sexual contact.
The main goal behind using therapy as a treatment for PE is to find the underlying cause or distress or depression which oftentimes, is linked to male impotency. This is sometimes referred to as ‘talk therapy’ because talking about a problem is the first step towards finding a solution. It is crucial to find a counselor or therapist who has experience in dealing with cases of male impotency. While it is difficult to talk to a therapist or even a family member about PE, Still, getting professional help can turn things around for the better.
Behavioral Therapy uses ways to make a man aware of the sensations which lead up to a climax, and shows a man ways to delay that process. The goal with behavioral therapy is to train the man’s body so that they can lessen excitement, and in the process delay their climax during intercourse. Some of the most common exercises which are involved in behavioral therapy include, the stop-start method and the squeeze method. Behavioral therapy or sex therapy helps since it teaches couples who to stay relaxed with each other. There are also many other tools in a therapist’s arsenal that can help couples overcome the devastating impact of PE.
The condition of premature ejaculation can also be caused by underlying diseases or medical conditions that the person may not be aware of. This is why a complete medical examination should be carried out to find if there are any underlying health concerns that’s causing PE. Some of the most common medical causes of PE and male impotency are, diabetes, thyroid problems, multiple sclerosis and prostate cancer. That said, drug use and excessive alcohol consumption are also considered as two of the main factors behind PE. If the medical tests do find an underlying condition, then treating that condition may alleviate PE. This is why it is so important for men who are experiencing PE to always consult with their doctor to find the right treatment.
Pelvic Floor Muscle Exercise
One of the most effective exercises for men experiencing premature ejaculation is the pelvic floor muscle exercise. The pelvic muscles perform an important task by supporting and helping control the penis. In most men, these muscles are weak, and they get weaker with age, which increases the likelihood of developing premature ejaculation or erectile dysfunction. Keeping their importance in mind, a pelvic muscle exercise is considered to be extremely effective when it comes to the treatment of premature ejaculation.
Some men think that premature ejaculation is a permanent condition or a disease. This isn’t true. It is important to remember, that with the right treatment, diet plan and exercise regimen it is possible for men with PE to get rid of the condition permanently. There is no surgical treatment for PE, but by using the treatment options mentioned above, men who are suffering with PE can prevent it from happening in the future, regain control over their sensations during intercourse and regain pleasure during sex.
