Premature Ejaculation Treatments and Causes

When you have ejaculation before penetration happens, then we say that you have premature ejaculation. For men with this condition, it only requires a little stimulation to ejaculate and that they have no control over it. Unfortunately for such men, it is less than satisfactory and this makes two sad people: man and his girlfriend. The sexual anxiety sets in and unless they are checked, then you might end up with serious personal relationships.

What are the causes of premature ejaculation?

There are many and varied reasons. Let us look at each one of them.

New partner

Do you have a new sexual partner? If yes, you will be anxious since you do not know if you will meet their expectation.  It will take a few more sexual encounters before you are used to it.

Delayed ejaculation

Men who have taken abnormally long to ejaculate tend to suffer from this condition. The longer the time you take since your last ejaculation, the higher the risk of premature ejaculation.


It is common for men to suffer from anxious moments before engaging in sex. They are not confident enough about their performance. The good thing is that with the right frame of mind or the assistance of a sex-enhancing drug, you can overcome it.


Suffering from guilt could have a serious impact on your ability to perform well in bed. If for instance, you have cheated on your spouse, you might be haunted by your action.


Mental disorders such as depression could seriously affect your ability to engage in meaningful sex.

Hormonal imbalance

If you have an imbalance in the hormones such as male testosterone, then your sex drive will take a nosedive and as such, you will not be able to satisfy your wife.

 Other medications

There are various drugs and especially the anti-depression drugs which have adverse effects on your health. People who abuse such drugs are at a heightened risk of suffering from the condition.

 A physical exam, your medical history as well as the drugs which you have been taking will guide the doctor on the diagnosis.  A physical exam will also be carried out to determine the extent of your problem.

One of the easiest ways to treat premature ejaculation is to let resolve on its own over time. This is especially so if the cause is psychological.

 For anxiety, you need to carry out a few relaxation techniques such as the ones you will be shown by a therapist.

Delaying ejaculation is a hard act but it can be done. You will be shown how to delay it longer. Distraction, for instance, works remarkably well for men who cannot last for longer than 2 minutes.

Cutting down on alcohol and tobacco use will guarantee you way out of your sexual woes. Illegal drugs should also be avoided at all costs.

Managing premature ejaculation calls for concerted efforts between the man and his wife to delay it.
