All about premature ejaculation
Reading time: 15 minutes
Premature ejaculation occurs when a man ejaculates during sex earlier than he or his partner would like. Premature ejaculation is a common sexual problem. Estimates vary, but almost one in three men say they have faced this problem at some point.
What is the definition of premature ejaculation?
The main symptom of premature ejaculation is the inability to delay ejaculation for more than a minute after penetration. However, the problem can occur in all sexual situations, even during masturbation.
Premature ejaculation can be classified as follows:
Lifelong (primary). Long-standing premature ejaculation happens all the time, or almost, from the first sexual intercourse. Acquired (secondary). Acquired premature ejaculation develops after you have had previous sexual experiences without ejaculation problems. Many men feel like they have symptoms of premature ejaculation, but these symptoms do not meet the diagnostic criteria for premature ejaculation. These men might instead suffer from natural variable premature ejaculation, which includes periods of rapid ejaculation as well as periods of normal ejaculation.
What are the causes of premature ejaculation?
The exact cause of premature ejaculation is not known. Once thought to be solely psychological, doctors now know that premature ejaculation involves a complex interplay of psychological and biological factors.
Psychological causes Psychological factors that may play a role include:
- Early sexual experiences
- Sexual abuse
- Poor body image
- Worry about premature ejaculation
- Feelings of guilt that increase the tendency to rush sex.
Other factors may play a role, including
- Erectile dysfunction. Men who are anxious about getting or keeping an erection during sex may have a tendency to rush to ejaculate, which can be hard to change.
- Anxiety. Many men with premature ejaculation also have issues with anxiety, whether specifically related to sexual performance or other issues.
- Relationship problems. If you've had satisfying sex with other partners, during which premature ejaculation is infrequent, if at all, it's possible that interpersonal issues between you and your current partner are contributing to the problem.
- Biological causes: a number of biological factors can contribute to the abnormal levels of brain chemicals called neurotransmitters.
- Inflammation and infection of the prostate or urethra
- Hereditary traits
How to deal with premature ejaculation?
There are a number of self-help techniques you can try before seeking medical help.
These include in particular:
- masturbate 1-2 hours before having sex
- use a thick condom to help reduce sensation
- take a deep breath to briefly shut off the ejaculatory reflex (the body's automatic reflex during which one ejaculates)
- have sex with your partner on top (to allow them to pull back when you're about to ejaculate)
- take breaks during sex and distract themselves by thinking about something completely different.
- If you're in a long-term relationship, couples therapy may be helpful. You will be encouraged to explore issues that may affect your relationship and given advice on how to resolve them. You may also be shown techniques that can help you "unlearn" the premature ejaculation habit.
How do you know if you are a premature ejaculator?
Although the definition of premature ejaculation varies, the American Urological Association calls it "premature" if it occurs sooner than desired, either before or shortly after penetration, causing distress in the penis. one or both partners.
The American Psychiatric Association defines three levels of severity (mild, moderate, severe), based on the time to ejaculation, with mild being less than one minute. If rushed to give a time frame, many doctors would define prematurity as ejaculation within one minute of the start of intercourse.
Despite the opinions of professionals, your feelings about what is premature are also taken into account.
How to fight premature ejaculation?
Ninety-five percent of men are helped by behavioral techniques that help control ejaculation.
Stop and start: you or your partner stimulate your penis until you feel like you are about to have an orgasm. Stop the stimulation for about 30 seconds or until the sensation passes. Start stimulation again and repeat three or four more times before ejaculating.
Squeeze: It works the same way as the start and stop method. But, when you feel like you are reaching orgasm, you or your partner squeeze the head of your penis until you lose your erection. Repeat this several times before ejaculating.
Some men find that if they think about something else during sex, they can last longer.
If that doesn't work for you, you can try other things:
Strengthen your muscles: Weak pelvic floor muscles sometimes contribute to PE. Kegel exercises can help strengthen them. Find the right muscles to contract by stopping your urine halfway through. Hold them tight for 3 seconds, then release them for 3 seconds. Do this exercise 10 times, at least three times a day.
Wear a condom: it can desensitize you enough so that you can last longer.
Get busy before you "busy": Some men find that masturbating a few hours before sex helps them stay in control during sex.
Seek advice: A psychologist or psychiatrist can help you with issues such as depression, anxiety or stress that may be contributing to your erection.
If none of these exercises work, we advise you to start a course of MaxiControl which will help you take a step back and control your ejaculation.
