Ejaculation and Premature Ejaculation
Ejaculation is something that you can control by full means. Any man can learn to control his ejaculation in the same way that he has learned to control the bladder (Toilet Training) when he was younger. And the best part is; you are unlikely to forget to control your ejaculation once you’ve learnt it. Premature ejaculation or PE is one of the very common sexual dysfunctions in men who are less than 40 years of age.
What is premature ejaculation?
This condition as defined as having ejaculation prior to the wishes of both sexual partners involved.
In addition, the condition is medically defined as persistent or recurrent ejaculation with minimal sexual stimulation:
- Before, on, or shortly after penetration;
- Before the person wishes it
What causes premature ejaculation?
To date, there has been no “definite” known cause for PE. However, a number of psychological/behavioral and biogenic etiologies have been proposed. For example, anxiety, stress and guilt all are thought to be contributing or risk factors.
At times, premature ejaculation can be a symptom of an underlying medical condition. If this is the case, you should speak with your doctor any time you have concerns about your sexual health.
It is generally characterized by 3 properties or effects:
- A short time to ejaculation
- A lack of control over ejaculation,
- Distress for men and their partners
In addition, premature ejaculation is also associated with decreased satisfaction with sexual intercourse for both the man and his partner, intrapersonal distress, a negative impact on a man’s self-esteem and reduced sexual function, and possibly, reduced quality of life.
How is premature ejaculation treated?
A number of treatment methods and ways have been implied to control or completely cure the problem of premature ejaculation such as:
Prescription drugs: The American Urological Association recommends antidepressants as first-line drug therapy for premature ejaculation. The most common of such drugs used include fluoxetine, paroxetine, sertraline, and the tricyclic clomipramine. These drugs attempt to increase levels of a brain hormone called “serotonin” whose deficiency has been found to be linked with premature ejaculation. However, the main issue with these clinical drugs is that they have their own serious side effects especially if used for long time.
Natural techniques / exercises: Such natural treatment techniques involve “stop-and-squeeze” techniques and distractions from sexual stimuli to discourage ejaculation until both partners are ready. However, the issue with such techniques is that not everyone can get 100% expertise in practicing these techniques. Also, for many, these tips may require months or even years to become fully effective.
Herbal & mineral therapy: Certain herbs and minerals, if blended together in the recommended proportions, have been found to have highly potent role in increasing and enhancing both the quality and quantity of ejaculation. Some of these herbs, minerals and amino acids include Muira Puama, Pomegranate extract, L-Arginine, L-Glycine & Zinc.
In short, every man wants to be a good performer in bed. Lack of control of ejaculation and impossibility for lasting longer often become a reason for loosing self confidence and avoiding social relations.
