Premature Ejaculation - Symptom, Treatment And Causes

What exactly is a premature ejaculation?

When a person ejaculates without control before or shortly after penetration during a sexual intercourse the condition is known as premature ejaculation. It is accompanied by a minimal amount of sexual stimulation and a person does not really wish to ejaculate that quickly. The result is deriving unsatisfactory amounts of pleasure from the sexual act for both of the partners. The pressure to perform can get to a person and the added anxiety only adds to the woes of a patient. It is one of the commonest of the manifestations of sexual dysfunctions in males. Almost all men have fallen prey to this condition at one point in their sexual lives.

What are the causes of premature ejaculation?

The exact cause of the majority of cases of premature ejaculation is yet to be ascertained and there is a lack of clarity regarding the same. With the passage of time, men learn to postpone their orgasms slightly. New sexual partners often trigger premature ejaculation. Certain sexual situations may trigger such a condition. Even long periods of time between ejaculations may be the culprit. Psychological issues are also terrible important in this form of sexual dysfunction. It may result from guilt, anxiety and also depression. The cause may also be medical in nature like problems with hormones, an injury or as a side effect of certain medications.

How is the diagnosis made?

In order to diagnose premature ejaculation, the doctor examining the patient will have in-depth discussions regarding his sexual and medical history. A comprehensive physical exam will be performed on him. Doctors may also, in addition, want to discuss the condition with the partner of the patient. As seen earlier, there are multiple causes of premature ejaculation. Doctors will obviously want to rule out medical problems through laboratory tests also.

How is premature ejaculation treated?

In a vast number of cases, the condition gets better over time to own its own without medical intervention. One may try to learn techniques for relaxation and delayed ejaculation to get over the problem. Alcohol, drugs, and tobacco too affect premature ejaculation. Refraining oneself from using them might be of help.

Doctors generally often offer advice on learning scientific techniques to delay the ejaculation. Together with one’s partner, one can slow sexual stimulation through effective communication. Condoms may help to reduce sensation on his sexual organ. Some intercourse positions too are less susceptible to premature ejaculation. Behavioural therapy and counselling can help get rid of psychological issues if any.
