It is important that we understand what is premature ejaculation in order. Premature ejaculation is uncontrolled ejaculation either before or shortly after penetration.It may result in unsatisfactory intercourse for both partners. This can increase the anxiety of that person. It is one of the most common forms of male sexual dysfunction.
 
What are the causes behind PE?

The exact cause of premature ejaculation is unknown, but it's often rooted in physical, psychological, or emotional issues. In some cases, it may be related to a medical cause such as hormonal problems, injury, or a side effect of certain medicines.

Other causes may include:

  • Early experiences with masturbation and sex.
  • Erectile Dysfunction.
  • Relationship problems.
  • Intercourse with a new partner.

What are the symptoms?: The primary symptom of premature ejaculation is the inability to delay ejaculation for more than one minute after penetration. The main symptom is an uncontrolled ejaculation either before or shortly after intercourse begins. Ejaculation occurs before the person wishes it, with minimal sexual stimulation.

How it is diagnosed?: Premature ejaculation is diagnosed based on typical symptoms. To understand your problem, your doctor will need to discuss your sexual history with you. Be frank and open. The more your doctor knows, the better he or she can help you.
 
How it is treated?: In many cases premature ejaculation gets better on its own over time. Treatment may not be needed. But there are some serious conditions that need to be treated. 

Practicing relaxation techniques or using distraction methods may help you delay ejaculation. You can try using a condom to reduce sensation to the penis. Or you can try a different position (such as lying on your back) during intercourse.

These therapies may be used together in different combinations to treat premature ejaculation and in turn improve your self-esteem and sex life. Behavioral therapy is one possible approach for treating premature ejaculation. Most commonly, the 'squeeze technique' is used. Consult a sexologist to get best solution for this problem.

Premature Ejaculation - Know Techniques For It!

Premature ejaculation or early ejaculation is the expelling of semen with minimum sexual stimulation, almost immediately after (or sometimes before) sexual penetration. This is a common sexual problem for men below the age of 45 in addition to erectile dysfunction. Premature ejaculation can be a result of several physical and psychological factors. If the root cause is not serious, the problem can be solved by a few simple techniques, such as:

1. Breathing exercises

Relaxation techniques like breathing exercises and meditative practices can help you to concentrate. It also moderates the tension and stress levels which are directly related to arousal. Avoid short and rapid breaths as they can put undue pressure on the heart and increase the pulse rate. This often results in early ejaculation. On the other hand, if you take deep breaths and practice holding them in for three to five seconds, you can also use the technique during arousal. 

2. Kegel exercises

Kegel exercises can help both men and women with their sexual problems. In men, these help to strengthen the pubococcygeus muscle by repeated contraction and relaxation. The pubococcygeus muscle helps to control urination too. If you use the same technique when you are close to an orgasm, you can delay your ejaculation. 

3. Squeeze technique

This technique is used to reduce excessive and rapid rate of arousal. When you are close to orgasm, you can squeeze the base of the penis to curb the erection somewhat so that it can build up again. This will automatically delay ejaculation. It is a good idea to practice this technique on your own first and then try it with your partner.

4. Stop and start exercise

This exercise was perfected by the Masters and Johnson team of sexual research. This technique is also to be practised individually for the first few times. You can masturbate alone and stop just before reaching the climax. You can practice this again and again by bringing yourself closer to ejaculation every time until the point you cannot control or regulate the process any more. This will help you to know the limit till which you can stop and regulate the ejaculation process. You can then use this technique during sexual activity with your partner.

5. Reduce stress

The stress hormones in your body prevent the secretion of testosterone which is responsible for your sex drive. Alcohol, tobacco or nicotine and other illegal drugs used to combat stress can also have an adverse effect on your sexual arousal and cause premature ejaculation.

Early Discharge - How To Manage It?

Early Discharge - How To Manage It?

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.

The ejaculation has two phases: Emission and Ejaculation. In people with early discharge, there is quick emission of the seminal fluid and the sperms are ejaculated before a thorough penetration, because of which there could be incomplete satisfaction for both the partners.

An actual definition of this problem is not possible, as different people have different expectations and experiences. However, as a general rule, ejaculation that happens within 10 seconds or 1 minute 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: 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.

Remedies: While the anxiety and the lifestyle changes need to be managed, there are other simple techniques that can help manage the issue at hand.

Dietary changes:

  1. Eggs: They provide the required protein that is essential for the production of sex hormones.
  2. Blueberries: This improves blood flow, especially to the genital area, thereby helping maintain an erection.
  3. Asparagus powder: This can be mixed in milk and boiled and consumed twice daily.
  4. Almond and gingerA mixture of crushed almonds soaked overnight with ginger powder, cardamom, and saffron in milk also gives desired results.

In addition to this, there are specific yoga postures which are believed to help in delaying the ejaculation. Meditation including bhastrika pranayama, anulom vilom, and kapal bhaati can be helpful.
There is a strong psychological component with stress and anxiety being major reasons for early discharge. Therefore, managing these underlying issues can often relieve the problem. Counseling the couple also is very helpful in managing the issue. An understanding spouse often helps solve the issue, rather than aggravate it.

Therapies like shirodhara and shiro basti can also help reduce stress and anxiety and manage premature ejaculation. Frequent sexual activity should be avoided, with masturbation not to exceed more than 2 times a week. Also, it has been observed that incidence of premature ejaculation reduces with age and most men learn to control ejaculation as they grow older. The problem is more with younger men who are more anxious and curious about their sex life.

How Can Stress Cause Premature Ejaculation?

Ejaculation can be considered premature if it happens within 1 minute of penetration or if you are unable to control your ejaculation. There are several reasons that can contribute to premature ejaculation like performance anxiety, excessive excitement, relationship issues and hypersensitivity of the skin. To treat premature ejaculation, it is important to determine the cause and stress that can be a potent reason that is preventing you from 'lasting' long. Premature ejaculation can be life long or acquired.

The effects of stress on the mind-

Stress can create havoc in your life and it is closely related to sexual dysfunctions. It is caused not only by rigorous emotional turmoil, daily factors like work or school can also lead to continuous stress, which may pile up to have a profound effect on your mind and body. Stress tends to alter the brain chemistry by triggering hormones like Cortisol, Norepinephrine, Serotonin and many others that signal the nervous system and endocrine to put the body in a state of anxiety which leads to weakening of the ejaculation reflex arc.

The effects of stress on the body-

Increased level of stress causes the heart rate to drop and the body is stimulated to produce excess blood sugar, adrenalin and chemicals. If your stress is caused due to work, your body will respond to it by diverting blood towards the important organs like hands and legs and your concentration might also improve under stress. However, stress can diminish your ability to enjoy sex, heighten your sensitivity to stimulation and pain and increase impotence.

How stress causes premature ejaculation?

Stimulation of the sympathetic nerves and hormonal imbalance caused by stress create an urge to ejaculate. Generally, this urge is enhanced by mental and sensory stimulation till orgasm is reached. One is likely to engage in sex with an amplified urge to ejaculate because the nerves have already been exhausted which leads to an early climax. Men with premature ejaculation has shown significant impact on self esteem and self confidence and many people confirm high levels of anxiety connected to sexual or intimate situations with a partner.

In a recent-published survey investigating the female partner's perception of premature ejaculation and impact on relationship break ups, relationship quality and sexual satisfaction among females, many of them confirmed that premature ejaculation was the main reason for break ups.

Hormonal disturbances in Thyroid, Prolactine, Erectile dysfunction, Penile anomalies, Prostate disease, Lower urinary tract infection can also cause premature ejaculation.
 
Reducing stress is an important step to cure premature ejaculation. Premature ejaculation can be treated with medications, counseling, diet and exercises. Ayurvedic medicines give nice results in such problems as they give proper strength and stamina with proper erections.

Premature Ejaculation - How Can Ayurveda Help?

Premature ejaculation is a common complaint of many men and has a more psychological effect than a physiological one. This can be defined as a situation where ejaculation is uncontrolled and occurs sooner than a man or his partner would like. Unless this is a frequent occurrence, it is not an issue to worry about. This condition can be easily treated with a combination of medication and techniques to control ejaculation.

Ayurveda is a holistic form of treatment that addresses the core issues of a problem. Unlike other allopathic forms of medication, an ayurvedic course of treatment involves not only medication but also exercises and lifestyle changes. According to ayurveda, premature ejaculation is a result of a number of factors including age, time since the last ejaculation, his levels of excitement, stress etc.

Here are a few ayurvedic tips that could help prevent premature ejaculation.

  1. Lifestyle Changes: Follow a systematic sleep-wake schedule of going to bed and waking up at the same time every day. Also try and follow a routine when it comes to daily tasks like brushing your teeth, bathing, exercising and meal times. Eat balanced meals that are nutritious with a low-fat value. Do not try to control natural urges such as the need to urinate, defecate, sneeze, sleep etc.
  2. Herbs: There are a number of ayurvedic herbs that can be used to treat this condition. While ayurveda has negligible side effects it is unwise to self medicate or follow an uncertified prescription. Though talking about this condition may be embarrassing, one must always consult a doctor before using any ayurvedic herb. Tribulus terrestris has properties that can increase strength and stamina and boost self-esteem. It is also beneficial for prostate health and is said to increase sperm count. Additionally, it increases libido. Shilajit is a herb used to improve vigour and stamina. It also helps deal with stress and improves fertility rates and sperm count. Ashwagandha can help relieve impotency, stress and a number of other lifestyle ailments that influence premature ejaculation. It promotes a feeling of overall wellbeing and facilitates quicker and longer lasting erections.
  3. YogaYoga can also help relieve this condition by regulating body functions and hormones. The Paschimotasana is one of the best yoga exercises for this condition. It strengthens sperm and helps control ejaculation. Sarvangaasana strengthens the adrenal glands and testis and thus boosts sperm potency. Uttanapadasana deals with digestive issues and metabolism and in turn, helps a man control his ejaculation.
