Premature Ejaculation Treatment

What Is Premature Ejaculation

Ejaculating too fast is more common than you might think. Many specialists consider premature ejaculation (PE) to be a problem when orgasm happens within a minute of engaging in intercourse. Others put the cut-off earlier at 15 seconds. A common symptom is reaching orgasm too soon, even though there’s minimal stimulation of the penis.

We understand that this is causing frustration and embarrassment. You can’t control your body, and your partner remains unsatisfied. The longer you allow PE to continue, the worse it becomes. Some men report anxiety about having sexual relations with their partners because they worry that they’ll fail to satisfy them.

How is Premature Ejaculation Diagnosed?

There’s no lab test to diagnose premature ejaculation. Instead, our board-certified physicians or specialty-trained doctors and medical staff in men’s health determine a diagnosis after reviewing your medical history, conducting a comprehensive exam, and talking to you. Frequently, we’ll suggest a blood test to check hormone levels and rule out other conditions.

At that time, the doctor will ask you about your ability to delay ejaculation during sex. If there’s an inability to do so, the specialist will make a note of it. Generally, if you’ve been ejaculating too fast over the course of six months, there’s a good chance that you have a problem with premature ejaculation.

Common Causes of Premature Ejaculation

There’s an array of conditions that can combine and cause premature ejaculation. That said, three common causes stand out.

1) Lifestyle Choices

Your lifestyle choices may be factoring into experiencing PE. Binge drinkers and recreational drug users are more likely to find themselves reaching orgasm too soon.

2) Psychological

If you’ve been struggling with PE, it’s easy to build up performance anxiety that creates stress. You’re so worried about ejaculating too fast that it becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy. Depression, body image issues, and erectile dysfunction can also lead to PE.

3) Physiological Factors

Men with high blood pressure, prostate problems, and diabetes are at a higher risk of experiencing premature ejaculation. By the way, you may also struggle with PE if you have an inflammation of the urethra. You may not be aware that you have this condition as it may be without other symptoms.

Why Choose Us to Treat Your Premature Ejaculation?

When you struggle with premature ejaculation, it’s frustrating for your partner and embarrassing for you. Some men quit pursuing sexual relationships because they’re afraid of it happening again. Others develop strains in their relationships because of repeated PE episodes.

Our board certified-physicians or specialty-trained doctors and medical staff in men’s health offer solutions. Treatment depends on the results of your examination. For example, if a doctor suspects that you struggle with depression, initial treatment will consist of an antidepressant. For someone with inflammation, antibiotics are the correct course of treatment.

By tackling the underlying issue, it’s now possible to deal with PE as well. Some patients have had excellent success with the use of particular numbing creams to temporarily minimize the sensitivity of the penis.
