Home Sexual Issues PE 11 Common Steps How Premature Ejaculation Is Treated

The good news is that premature ejaculation can be treated so long as men report it to their doctors on time. Men who shy away from approaching a doctor may find themselves in a bigger soup as time passes.

Here is a primer on how the condition is treated:

Premature Ejaculation Treatment / Process

  1. The doctor first analyzes the patient and ascertains the cause of premature ejaculation. It could be physical, psychological, lifestyle-related, or due to medicines or a medical condition. Treatment is prescribed based on the cause.
  2. Men with lifestyle-related ejaculation problems are urged to give up bad habits like smoking and drinking. They are also told to cut down on their stress levels and also on fat, if they are overweight or obese. Other lifestyle factors are analyzed and treatment is prescribed. Patients may be asked to take up Yoga.
  3. Penis vacuum pumps and penis enhancement pills or patches are prescribed in many cases. Penis enhancement pills contain natural herbs that increase the flow of blood to the organs, including the penis, leading to stronger erections that last longer. Penis pumps stretch penis tissue and help increase penis size and blood-holding capacity.
  4. If the premature ejaculation is caused by medication, then the drugs are reviewed and changed, if possible. If it is caused by a medical condition or by surgery, then the cause is treated.
  5. If the condition is caused by psychological problems, the doctor asks the patient to see a psychologist and seek appropriate treatment. Other forms of treatment like penis pumps, yoga, etc., may be prescribed by the psychologist.
  6. If the condition is not caused by medication/medical conditions, then men may be asked to see a sex therapist. Sex therapists usually recommend an all-round treatment. For example, they may recommend masturbating an hour or two before having sex so that premature ejaculation does not occur. The patient may also have to sit through counseling sessions. The therapist also may recommend that the patient stay away from intercourse for some time, and during that period, focus on other types of sexual plays. This may be suggested to ease the sexual stress that the patient feels during intercourse.
  7. Therapists also may recommend “The Squeeze Technique” to partners. The woman is asked to squeeze the penis’s end when her partner almost gets the urge to ejaculate. After releasing the squeeze, the partners go back to foreplay till the penis achieves full erection. This process can be repeated until full satisfaction is derived from the encounter.
  8. Numbing creams may be recommended for men with hypersensitive skin on the penis. Men with sensitive skin ejaculate instantly at the slightest touch and numbing creams contain anesthetics that dull the sensation without taking the pleasure away. Some creams can cause allergy, and therefore patients must use them with care.
  9. Some doctors prescribe drugs for treating premature ejaculation. Drugs containing the compound Dapoxetine are used for treating the condition. Other drugs too may be prescribed. Dapoxetine works for men aged between 18 and 64 years.
  10. One side-effect of antidepressants delays ejaculation. So, the doctor may prescribe antidepressants like serotonin uptake inhibitors to patients. If the premature ejaculation persists, the doctor may prescribe a tricyclic antidepressant clomipramine like Anafranil. The dosage must be taken a few hours before the sexual encounter. That said, antidepressants come loaded with nasty side-effects and you must consult your doctor about their pros and cons.
  11. Counseling can also be recommended for some men. Sharing concerns with the counselor takes a lot of weight off the patient’s shoulders and relaxes his mind. He learns that he is not alone in this world, and then takes treatment to cure his condition.

To Sum Up

Premature ejaculation is typically cured by combining several treatments. Patients may be advised to take penis enhancement pills along with counseling sessions, or they may be prescribed antidepressants along with a vacuum pump. The treatment depends on the cause, and is therefore best left to the doctor.
