Premature ejaculation happens when man orgasms during sex sooner than he or his partner would like. Criteria for diagnosing this condition contain that the man nearly always ejaculates within one minute of penetration or is almost never capable to delay ejaculation. For most men, the average time until ejaculation is about five minutes. Premature ejaculation affects many men and can lead to them feeling frustrated and embarrassed. Some men even try to keep away from sexual intimacy because of it. However, it is treatable through counseling, using sexual techniques to delay ejaculation and medications.
If your premature ejaculation is caused by a physical situation, treating the underlying condition should help. Your GP can suggest possible treatment selection.
Treating premature ejaculation caused by psychological factors can be more challenging. However, most men who persevere with treatment find the problem resolves.
There are a number of self-help techniques you can try before seeking medical help.
- masturbating an hour or two before having sex
- taking a deep breath to briefly shut down the ejaculatory reflex (an automatic reflex of the body, during which ejaculation occurs)
- having sex with your partner on top
- taking breaks during sex and distracting yourself by thinking about something totally different.
Go to counseling-
You can do this either alone or with your partner. This can be helpful in dealing with:
If you and your partner are having problems in your relationship, this may be a contributing factor. This could be the case if the problem is new and did not occur in previous relationships. If this is the case, couples counseling may be helpful.
Performance anxiety or other stresses in your life. Sometimes if men are concerned about being capable to get or keep an erection, they may develop a pattern of ejaculating too quickly.
A traumatic sexual experience when you were younger. Some psychologists believe that if your early sexual experiences included feeling guilty or a fear of being discovered, that you may have learned to ejaculate very quickly.
