Premature Ejaculation Treatment

One of the most common sexual dysfunctions among men worldwide is premature ejaculation.  There are numerous reasons why men experience premature ejaculation, and researchers have estimated that almost all men will have PE at some point in their lives.  Since the causes of premature ejaculation are so diverse, so are the best treatment options.  Before you start pursuing your own treatment, however, it’s important for you to learn more about premature ejaculation.  Lots of manufacturers of pharmaceutical products would like you to believe that premature ejaculation is a medical condition, because this makes it more likely that you’ll believe that you need to purchase their medications in order to get better.  This is pretty far from the truth, though, as you’ll soon understand.

What Causes Premature Ejaculation?

So what are the causes of premature ejaculation?  Firstly, you need to figure out whether you even have PE.  In the past it was defined as ejaculating within two minutes of penetration during intercourse.  Nowadays however it’s usually just defined subjectively as follows:  If you ejaculate sooner than you or your partner would like, you can call yourself a premature ejaculator.  If you’re happy with your timing, even if you ejaculate sooner than the traditional two minute mark, you don’t have premature ejaculation.  If you’re not happy with your timing, even if you last longer than two minutes, you can consider yourself premature.
What this should tell you right off is that this is a subjective condition, not a medical condition.  Premature ejaculation is very rarely caused by physiological circumstances, though thyroid problems and hormone issues can cause men to experience it.  By far the most common causes are psychological.  Another cause is simply being a man; scientists believe that premature ejaculation has been naturally selected over the generations as a dominant trait in most men because it enabled men to pass on their genes in the past.If you do decide you have premature ejaculation and you want to last longer in bed, then you can start looking at how to treat your condition.  The treatment you choose depends on what you determine is causing you to ejaculate early.  Let’s take a look at both common and uncommon causes and how you would treat your condition in each situation.  This should help you to pursue the best course.  Note that most men are able to improve even without the use of premature ejaculation pills.

Biological Causes

Premature ejaculation is rarely the result of biological causes.  On occasion however it can be the result of thyroid problems or other hormone problems, abnormal levels of neurotransmitters, abnormal reflex activity, prostate or urethra inflammation or infection, or damage from injury or trauma to the nerves.  If you believe that any of these factors could have something to do with your chronic premature ejaculation, you can talk to a doctor about your health history and get a professional opinion on what might be going on.  Medications used to treat premature ejaculation include Priligy, Ultram, Tramal, and Anafranil.  Some men also can benefit from “delay spray” and “last longer” condoms.

Lifestyle Causes

There are factors in your lifestyle that can cause premature ejaculation if you have unhealthy habits.  Drug usage, which includes smoking and drinking, can cause you to experience PE.  In some cases medications and herbs may also be responsible, so if you’re taking anything for another health condition, you may want to ask your doctor about it.  If something you’re taking is causing your premature ejaculation, you might be able to switch to another medication.  And if it’s simply an unhealthy habit you have, you will probably need to stop it before you can see improvement with your ejaculation control.

Psychological Reasons for Premature Ejaculation

Most men who experience PE have psychological reasons for ejaculating early.  There are a ton of different reasons a man may have problems controlling ejaculation.  A loss of intimacy in a relationship which is under stress can cause PE, as can stresses which are completely unrelated to your sex life.  Work-related stress or stress with other relationships may even cause you to have problems with sex.  Anxiety or depression concerning your relationship or other elements of your life may be the source of premature ejaculation, as can post traumatic stress relating to past negative experiences, sexual or otherwise.  In all of these cases, your treatment is going to involve treating your stress, anxiety or depression, or resolving the issues in our life or relationship which are causing your premature ejaculation.
Whatever the cause of your premature ejaculation, you should know that anxiety relating to sexual performance may also cause PE, even without other stressors.  Sometimes one isolated experience with PE can spawn many more if a man becomes nervous about his performance.  Acknowledge that your PE is probably going to subside if you work on whatever issues are causing it and you’re more likely to improve sooner.

What Else Can Cause Premature Ejaculation?

If you’ve thought about all of these possible sources of PE and not figured out what could be causing your own, there are a couple of other possibilities.  One may be that you’ve been conditioned to ejaculate early, either because of rushed sexual encounters in the past or because you see sex as a means to having an orgasm and not as a pleasurable journey in itself.  In both cases you can retrain your mind.
Another possible cause of PE is simply that you’ve inherited it as a genetic trait.  On the whole men are more likely to reach their climaxes earlier than women.  You can still improve your sexual performance and last longer in bed by doing Kegel exercises and strengthening your pelvic floor muscles.  This will improve your ejaculatory control and may help you experience harder erections and more intense orgasms.  Doing exercises can also help boost your confidence.  There are many ways you can treat premature ejaculation which don’t require you to use a medication, so look into your options!
