Premature Ejaculation - Causes And Treatment

MD, MBBS
Sexologist, Kolkata
Premature Ejaculation - Causes And Treatment

The incidence of premature ejaculation (PE) in men is reported to be 30% and is on the rise. It is the release or ejaculation of semen sooner than he would like during a sexual encounter with his partner. It is one of the most common male sexual problems.

It is considered that a man who can't 'last' for longer than five minutes would typically fit the definition of one suffering from 'premature ejaculation'.

Premature ejaculation can be a cause of embarrassment and can lead to frustration as sex may not lead to a pleasurable experience. Even partners of men who suffer from pe can be left feeling extremely dissatisfied. This can adversely affect relationships and have impacts on the affected person's self-esteem.

What causes premature ejaculation?

Ejaculation is controlled by the central nervous system. When a man is sexually aroused or stimulated, signals are carried from the spinal cord to the brain and from there sent to the reproductive organs to enable the release of semen through the penis. The exact cause of PE is still unknown. Many causes may attribute to PE from biological (low serotonin levels) to psychological factors and other related issues.

These are discussed further:

1. Biological causes: Serotonin is a natural substance made by the nerves. An increase in serotonin levels in the brain help men prolong the time taken to ejaculate and low levels of this substance can lead to PE.

2. Psychological factors: It is believed that following psychological factors can increase PE:

  • Depression
  • Guilt
  • Anxiety
  • Stress
  • Performance anxiety and unrealistic expectations
  • Low self-esteem
  • Relationship issues

It comes as a relief that PE need not be life-long and with some help it can be treated:

How is PE treated?

Quite often PE occurs with new partners and may decrease on its own over a period of time with absolutely no treatment. A urologist or sexologist may advice on certain techniques that you and your partner could try out to delay orgasm. A doctor may suggest use of numbing creams or gels if the skin of the penis is excessively sensitive. If the issue is a psychological one, therapy or counselling is advised which if followed can effectively reduce PE and help achieve a more satisfying sexual experience and subsequently improve relationships.

Erectile Dysfunction - 12 Shocking Causes Behind it

MD, MBBS
Sexologist, Kolkata
Erectile Dysfunction - 12 Shocking Causes Behind it

There is a general misconception about impotence and erectile dysfunction being two separate conditions. In fact, impotence is just another term for erectile dysfunction. If you have a problem in achieving an erection more than 70% of the times when you want to have sex, you are suffering from erectile dysfunction.

Impotence is the same thing, but it also encompasses other concerns related to sexual health such as low libido and issues with ejaculation.

Causes of erectile dysfunction

  1. Disruption of blood flow in the body or disruption in hormonal secretion and nerve supply to the body

  2. Vascular and neurological causes

  3. Occurrence of a disease known as atherosclerosis, which is caused due to smoking and diabetes. In this case, the arteries in the penis get narrowed and clogged.

  4. Neuropathy, which occurs because of diabetes or diabetic neuropathy

  5. Nerve damage because of a previous surgery around the pelvis area

  6. High blood pressure or hypertension also result in damaged arteries throughout the vascular system. Blood flow gets impaired and proper erection is hampered.

  7. Physical causes such as high cholesterol and obesity, Parkinson’s disease and multiple cases of sclerosis

  8. Smoking, excessive drinking and substance abuse

  9. The reactions and side effects of certain medicines

  10. Several psychological factors such as depression, excessive stress, tension, and performance anxiety, which reduce libido

  11. Poor communication with the sexual partner

  12. Intake of several medicines such as alpha adrenergic blockers, beta blockers, chemotherapy medications and central nervous system depressants

Treatment for erectile dysfunction

Different treatments may be used to treat erectile dysfunction. These include the following:

  1. Medication: A group of drugs known as PDE-5 or phosphodiesterase type 5 inhibitors are used for the treatment of erectile dysfunction.

  2. Vacuum devices: Vacuum erection devices help in providing an erection in men. A mechanical procedure is involved where the penis is made rigid using a vacuum pump sealed around it. This device draws blood and an erection becomes possible.

  3. Surgical treatment: Penile implants can be used to treat erectile dysfunction. Mechanical implants are used, which help to keep the penis hard. A vascular surgery is another option, which incorporates the correction of blood vessels responsible for erectile dysfunction.

  4. Natural treatment: There are a number of lifestyle changes that help a man naturally treat erectile dysfunction. Regular exercising, especially weight-bearing ones, not only aids in increasing blood flow, but also improves production of testosterone. Following a balanced diet with more intake of fruits and vegetables, limiting alcohol and avoiding smoking also generate positive results.

The term impotence and erectile dysfunction are quite related as they indicate the same conditions. However, today the term erectile dysfunction is more popular over the term impotence. In case you experience any of the symptoms of this condition, you should consult a doctor immediately.

8 Effective Ways You Can Manage Vaginal Irritation

8 Effective Ways You Can Manage Vaginal Irritation

It is common for women to experience genital irritation and itching. At some point of time, every woman is likely to experience some form of vaginal irritation. It is a condition which often causes great distress and embarrassment. Vaginal irritation is commonly caused by a yeast infection. Irritation may also occur due to certain chemicals and sanitary pads, which are used during menstruation. Persistence of such irritation and itching may cause vaginal pain.

Vaginal irritation can be managed in several ways. Here are some tips on how to manage and control vaginal irritation using simple remedies:

  1. Use apple cider vinegar: Apple cider vinegar contains antibacterial and antifungal properties. It helps in removal of irritation completely when caused by a bacterial or fungal infection. Take two spoonful of apple cider vinegar, add hot water to it and wash your vagina using this water. The vagina is made acidic due to which the bacteria does not last long.

  2. Apply cold compress: Vaginal irritation during the night can be quite troublesome and is likely to hamper your sleep, leaving you fatigued. Apply a cold compress or ice cubes directly to the vagina. This will provide substantial relief to the irritation.

  3. Take a salt bath: Salt is effective in eliminating bacteria and itching. In case you suffer from itching,  wash your vagina using concentrated salt water. This will provide instant relief from the irritation and the risk of further bacterial growth gets reduced.

  4. Use garlic paste: Garlic contains antibacterial properties, which are quite effective in providing relief from irritation and itching symptoms in the vagina. The smell of garlic is also considered effective. Make a garlic paste and apply it inside your vagina.

  5. Use yogurt: Yogurt contains active cultures, which remove bad bacteria by the addition of abundant good bacteria. Have a cup of pure yogurt without sugar regularly. Yogurt takes care of yeast infections quite fast. You may also apply it on the vagina, especially in the area prone to irritation.

  6. Use basil leaves: Basil leaves contain antifungal, antimicrobial and antibacterial properties. Boil basil leaves in water and drink the water. This method eliminates bacteria, which causes vaginal irritation.

  7. Antibacterial talc: You can use any antibacterial talc of either medical or herbal variety. A herbal, homeopathic talc is mild on the body, but takes some time to heal the infection. Medicated talcs provide faster healing. The talc destroys bacterial and fungal infections, which may occur because of the moist surroundings.

  8. Keep it dry: Keep your vagina dry as bacterial and fungal infections commonly affect wet areas, which result in irritation. For prevention of vaginal irritation, always wear loose clothes. If the irritation gets out of control, you must consult a doctor.

Penile length is sufficiently good. Pain in scrotum needs to be shown to a surgeon or Urologist if it persists.

There are muscles in our pelvis which controls our passage of stools and urine. Contraction of this muscles prevent leaking stools in case of diarrhea. These same muscles when tightened up by regular repeated exercise can give a better sexual feeling. You can tighten your pelvis muscles just like we do to prevent stools from leaking in diarrhea. YouTube videos are there to assist you. Once you get accustomed to it, try increasing the duration and number of such exercise.

It's called smegma and is secreted by the glands on the penis. It protects the genitals from invading infections. As a part of personal hygiene it needs to be cleaned just like we brush our teeth or clean our nose. So it's secretion can't be stopped.

Is it advisable to masturbate before going to bed. How many times can I masturbate in a day.
There is no limitations to the number of times, unless it becomes so compulsive that you can not control the urge irrespective of time place and person. It`s got beneficial effects provided you do it in privacy following hygienic methods.

When I participated with my partner in sex after releasing my sperm my penis is soring for few minutes why.
If it`s temporary, then it`s due to lack of lubrication and the resultant friction. Try using a lubricant jelly prior to penetration and after a satisfying time spent on foreplay.

When we eat a delicious meal, our taste buds take the sensation to brain, and we feel delighted. Intercourse is just a part of love making. The sensations are appreciated in your mind. So if you are not in syn with the person or you are to tensed or tired or got bored with the same spices maybe you should try to spice it up. Think if anything is missing in your relationship, or some trouble. Try having intercourse when both of you are not in a hurry or too tired. You might explore each other in various ways, maybe orally, and search out each other`s erogenous zones.

5 Psychological Issues That Can Cause Impotence

MD, MBBS
Sexologist, Kolkata
5 Psychological Issues That Can Cause Impotence

Impotence is embarrassing for a man. It not only affects his self-confidence, but also the relationship with his partner. It is a condition in which a man cannot achieve an erection for having sex. If you are experiencing symptoms of impotence, they are most likely due to physical issues. However, sometimes psychological issues can also be responsible for impotence.

Here are 5 psychological factors, which may be associated with the inability to achieve an erection indicating impotence:

  1. Stress: To a great extent, stress affects a person’s performance in bed. Due to excessive stress and pressure arising from different responsibilities and commitments, he might not be able to focus on sex. Extreme stress due to fear may leave him uneasy, thereby making it difficult for him to have an erection.

  2. Anxiety: After experiencing symptoms of impotency, it is likely that a man may get extremely anxious about the fact that he will not be able to perform well in bed again. This anxiety may also arise from relationship problems, sexual abuse in the past or when a person is in a new relationship. As such, during sex, anxiety may make a man self-conscious, which makes it quite difficult for him to have an erection.

  3. Depression: Feeling depressed or extremely sad because of any kind of issue such as a failed relationship, a poor career or recalling some past trauma may cause erectile dysfunction. Depression makes a person tired , thereby lowering his sex drive. The medicines used for treating depression may also lower libido,as a result of which a man may fail to get an erection.

  4. Low Self-esteem: Having a low or a negative self-esteem may cause performance anxiety. A person is likely to be worried about how he will perform in bed. Low self-esteem may arise from factors related to body image, past experiences and from an underlying feeling of guilt.

  5. Lack of Interest: Many conditions may divert a man’s interest from having sex. The lowering of libido will make it difficult for a man to get an erection and may lead to impotence. Such lack of interest may be on account of relationship issues, certain medications or because of ageing. Anger may also make a person lose interest in having sex.

If your sex life is getting hampered because of any such psychological factors, you must visit a doctor for seeking advice, suggestions and treatment. This will allow you to uncover and resolve the impotence-related problems, thereby letting you enjoy a healthy relationship with your partner in bed.
