A prolonged intimate experience is always desirable, but due to varied reasons, men sometimes experience early discharge. Also known as premature ejaculation, it is the most common male sexual problem. About 30% of the male population has had this problem at some time in their lives, with the semen coming out before any of the partners experiencing an orgasm. But this sexual health problem can treat with medication and changes in a dietary supplement or food items that help in the early discharge problem.

However, as a general rule, ejaculation that happens within 10 minutes is considered premature. Some of the causes include anxiety, unhealthy lifestyle, and inappropriate dietary patterns. For men, early discharge can be very stressful as they begin to doubt their self-worth. The inability to satisfy their partner can be very troublesome.

Symptoms of Premature Ejaculation: There are no symptoms other than experiencing it during the actual act. There is rapid arousal with a short-lasting erection and an ejaculation that happens within minutes or sometimes even less than a minute.
