What is Premature Ejaculation?
Premature ejaculation (PE) is when a man climaxes too quickly during sex, which can limit his own satisfaction and the pleasure of his partner. While it’s statistically normal for men to achieve orgasm more rapidly than women, noticeably and repeatedly short sessions can quickly lead to relationship problems in the bedroom as well as beyond. A satisfying sex life is an important part of a healthy relationship, so it’s easy to understand why PE can be problematic.
On a personal level, premature ejaculation can also be harmful to a man’s mental wellbeing. Failing to satisfy your partner can eat away at your esteem and confidence. It’s common to feel embarrassed and frustrated, and these emotions can lead to depression and anxiety if left unchecked.
How can this be treated?
Fortunately, there are a number of treatments that can be used to assist men who struggle with PE. There are both tried-and-true methods and newer approaches available to you. It all begins with a consultation in which your doctor will discuss your situation and create the ideal program for you.
Therapy for premature ejaculation can involve:
- Prescriptions for anti-depressants
- Sexual exercises to train your body to last longer
- Taking PDE5 inhibitors such as Viagra
- Penile injection therapy
- Sex counselling.
What results can I expect?
As your treatment takes effect, you should notice an improvement in the bedroom. You should be able to engage in sexual intercourse for an increasing length of time before achieving climax. You may need to adjust your night-time schedule accordingly!
Results will vary from individual to individual, so it’s not possible to predict exactly how much longer your sexual experiences will last. However, with ongoing improvement, both you and your partner will enjoy superior, satisfying sex. This can have far-reaching positive consequences for your relationship in general.
