I am Dr. Vikas Khanna. I am working as a counselor in Delhi & Gurgaon. So, today I will talk about premature ejaculation. A very common sexual problem occurring in almost 1/3 of the population. The psychological component which is normally ignored in premature ejaculation is the personality of the individual. People who are agitated, often have this problem. So, the nervous system is very agitated. And one is always in hurry to do things. The conduction of the nerves is very high. And that could be due to the deficiency of zinc and magnesium.

How can we get rid of this problem? There is no magic pill for premature ejaculation. One has to attend to the core personality issues which is always impatient and in hurry to do things. It is always in your head. All sexual problems are rooted in your head. One has to work on personality and see how he can slow down himself on these activities. Indulge in lots of sports like golf. You have to start doing things slowly. As you know the agitation and the stimulation is directly linked to your breathing pattern and sometimes you see your breathing becomes very fast when ejaculation happens. So, relaxation of mind through breathing is mandatory for the sustained sexual act to occur.

Now let's talk about the causes. One has to eat magnesium-rich diet and zinc like almonds, dark chocolates. The most important thing is to work on your patience. Work on your nervous system which is agitated. A lot of people who have anxiety, depression also suffer from premature ejaculation. Couple therapy helps you a lot. Performance anxiety also brings the problem of premature ejaculation. The couple has to be taught that how to be slow down in a sexual act. There are a lot of herbs which also comes in supplements and there are few homeopathic remedies which also help in slowing down the conduction of the nerves. Must remember that the conduction is the desensitization of your nerves and psychology is directly linked with very fast conduction of nerves. For any help, you can consult me at Lybrate.

Thank You.
