Solutions for Premature Ejaculation

Premature ejaculation (PE) is medically defined as ejaculating in less than 2 minutes from penetration. Many men encounter the challenge of ejaculating too soon at some point in their lives. Premature ejaculation often involves minimal sexual stimulation, occurring before desired and contributing to relationship issues. Typically more prevalent in younger men, it is frequently triggered by stress, anxiety, or depression, leading to decreased serotonin levels in the brain.

Strategies to Prevent Premature Ejaculation

  1. Consider Condom Use: Wearing a condom can reduce sensation, potentially aiding in delaying ejaculation.
  2. Explore Different Sexual Positions: Opting for positions where your partner is on top may decrease the likelihood of premature ejaculation.
  3. Try the ‘Squeeze Method’: Just before reaching climax, gently squeeze the head of the penis for 1-20 seconds. This can be done by either you or your partner. The process aims to decrease arousal and delay orgasm, and must be repeated three times before climax. Practice is key for effectiveness.
  4. Consider Psychological Treatments: While their effectiveness is uncertain, psychological interventions are sometimes used to address premature ejaculation.
  5. Explore Pharmaceutical Options: Creams or tablets may be preferred alternatives for some individuals, offering additional options for managing premature ejaculation.

Studies have shown variable results with these techniques, emphasizing the importance of finding the approach that works best for you.
