What is Premature Ejaculation?
Premature ejaculation, also known as rapid ejaculation or early ejaculation, is a sexual issue that occurs when a man ejaculates sooner than expected during sexual intercourse. Of course, there is no standard time for a man to ejaculate, but if you experience sperm production in less than a minute after sex, then there is a medical condition that needs treatment.
While you might not have the ability to control the timing of ejaculation because it’s a neurologic process, it is a big problem because when you ejaculate, you lose your erection, which implies you can’t continue with the sex. Premature ejaculation is a common issue that most men face at some point in time in their life.
Symptoms of Premature Ejaculation
Premature ejaculation is a troubling sexual condition that compromises sexual satisfaction. Here are major symptoms to show you’re suffering from premature ejaculation:
- Inability to delay ejaculation for more than a minute after penetration during sexual intercourse
- Rapid climax during intercourse
- Sperm production during foreplay
Causes of Premature Ejaculation
Many factors can lead to frequent premature ejaculation during sexual intercourse, some of which are:
- Poor body image
- Performance anxiety
- Penile sensitivity
- Erectile dysfunction
- Early sexual experiences
- Abnormal hormone levels
- Prostate inflammation and infection
Consequences of Premature Ejaculation
The fact that premature ejaculation is not affected by age has made it a major concern for patients experiencing the troubling sexual condition. It can lead to several emotional and psychological consequences, such as embarrassment, mental distress, and depression.
Premature Ejaculation Treatment and Care
Premature ejaculation can be treated in several ways, including:
- Behavioral techniques: A larger percentage of men experiencing premature ejaculation have been treated through behavioral techniques. This technique might involve masturbating a few hours before having sexual intercourse to delay ejaculation during sex or practicing the “start and stop” technique, which involves interrupting sexual intercourse at intervals.
- Oral medications: Some drugs or medications can help men delay orgasm. Antidepressants known as serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) have proven to be an effective medication for prolonged ejaculation. However, these medications have side effects on the body, such as drowsiness and nausea.
- Topical anesthetics: Topical anesthetics (creams or sprays) that contain a numbing agent, such as benzocaine or lidocaine, can be used to desensitize the head of the penis against powerful sensation and premature ejaculation. Using topical anesthetics is the simplest way of treating premature anesthetics, and it poses no significant side effects on the body.
