What Is Premature Ejaculation?
Premature ejaculation (PE) is a condition in which a man ejaculates more quickly during sex than he or his partner likes. Premature ejaculation is a sexual dysfunction. Estimates vary, but at least one in three people report experiencing this problem at some point.
As long as it happens occasionally, it’s not a big cause for concern. You may be diagnosed with PE if:
- Can’t delay ejaculation during intercourse almost all the time.
- Always or usually ejaculating within minutes of entering.
- Feelings of anger and frustration and wanting to avoid sex as a result.
- Biological and psychological factors can play a very important role in premature ejaculation. Although many men are embarrassed to talk about it, PE is a normal and treatable medical condition. Counseling, medication, and sexual methods that accelerate ejaculation or a combination of these can help improve sex for you and your partner.
What Are The Symptoms of Premature Ejaculation?
The main symptom of PE is the inability to delay ejaculation for more than one minute after penetration. However, the problem can occur in all sexual situations, even during self-harm. Premature ejaculation can be classified as follows:
- Lifetime (Primary) PE: premature ejaculation happens almost all the time, starting with your first sexual intercourse.
- Acquired (secondary) PE: Acquired premature ejaculation develops after you have had a few sexual experiences without ejaculatory problems.
Many men think they have symptoms of premature ejaculation, but these symptoms do not meet the diagnostic criteria for premature ejaculation.
Instead, these men may experience irregular ejaculation, which includes rapid ejaculation and normal ejaculation.
What Are The Common Causes & Risk Factors of Premature Ejaculation?
The cause of premature ejaculation is unknown. But your brain chemistry may be part of the reason. Men with reduced levels of the brain chemical serotonin often take less time to flush.
Emotions can also play a very important role:
- Relationship issues
- Worry about your sexuality
- Lack of confidence or poor body image
- Negative feelings about the concept of sex (anti-sexuality)
The following physical conditions can also cause PE:
- Bad hormone levels
- Abnormal levels of neurotransmitters (imbalance of brain chemicals that send impulses or messages to other parts of the body)
- Genetic traits you inherit from your parents
- Inflammation or infection of the urethra or prostate (the tube that carries urine from your bladder to the body)
Sometimes PE can be a problem for men with erectile dysfunction (ED). This is when you cannot get or maintain an erection for sex. Men in distress may stop their erections and begin to rapidly ejaculate.
Receiving treatment for erectile dysfunction can make premature ejaculation go away. There are many drug options.
How Is Premature Ejaculation Diagnosed?
It is common for men to be able to at least have some control when it comes to sexual desire and sex.
Imagine that a man does not feel that he controls the time of ejaculation and if possible you have premature ejaculation.
When PE interferes with your sexual desire, you should contact your healthcare professional immediately. Diagnosis is determined by whether ejaculation occurs early, late, or not at all.
Typically, your healthcare provider will diagnose PE after a physical examination. The doctor may ask some of the following questions:
- How often does PE happen?
- How long have you had this problem?
- Does PE happen with every attempt to have sex?
- What types of sexual intercourse (gaming, masturbation, sex, using visual displays, etc.) do you do, and how often?
- Is there anything that makes PE better or worse (i.e. alcohol, drugs, etc.)?
- Does it only happen to one partner or all partners?
- How has PE changed your sexual behavior?
- How is your relationship?
Laboratory testing is only required if your healthcare professional finds something during your physical exam.
How Is Premature Ejaculation Treated?
In most cases, there is a physical cause behind PE and the prognosis is good. If PE occurs at the beginning of new sex, problems usually go away on their own over time.
If the problem persists, your doctor may recommend that you see a sex therapist.
There is no approved medication for the treatment of premature ejaculation in the United States, although some antidepressants can help delay ejaculation to some extent.
Cenforce 200mg, Vidalista 40mg, Fildena 150mg, and more are used in a few countries to treat some types of primary and secondary PE. It is a fast-acting SSRI that is licensed to treat premature ejaculation. However, it can only be used if:
- Sexual intercourse lasts less than 2 minutes before ejaculation.
- Ejaculation occurs more often when sexual stimulation is insufficient before, during, or shortly after the initial penetration, and before he wants to climax.
- Lack of control over ejaculation.
- There are personal problems or social difficulties due to PE.
- Most attempts at intercourse in the past six months include premature ejaculation.
Side effects of this drug are nausea, headache, dizziness, and diarrhea.
Home Remedies for Premature Ejaculation
These two methods can be useful for men:
Start and stop method: it is used to control male ejaculation. Either the man or his partner stops sexual desire only when he feels that he is about to have an orgasm, they start again as soon as the feeling of coming orgasm stops.
The squeeze method: This method is similar to the previous one, but the man gently squeezes the nipple, of his partner, for about 30 seconds before resuming stimulation.
A man tries to achieve this more than three or four times before he lets it out. Action is important, but if the problem continues, it may be worth going to the doctor.
