Sexual health includes not only the physical, but also the mental and emotional state of a person; it can be defined as a state of physical, mental, and emotional well-being in relation to sexuality. Having good sexual health can help to avoid disease, live life to the fullest, and have a strong, healthy, and intimate relationship. However, there are several conditions that can negatively affect sexual health, including premature ejaculation.
Premature ejaculation is a condition experienced by men and is characterized by ejaculating before or during sexual intercourse sooner than he or his partner would desire. It is also characterized by ejaculating too soon for sexual intercourse to be fulfilling and can lead to intimacy problems and an inability to conceive a child when ejaculation occurs before penetration. Premature ejaculation is a common sexual complaint. While estimates vary, as many as one-third of men say they experience this problem at some point during their lives, making it a prevalent problem. If premature ejaculation happens infrequently, it is not a cause for concern; however, the condition is typically diagnosed when:
• A man always or almost always ejaculates within one minute of penetration or sexual stimulation
• A man is unable to delay ejaculation during intercourse all or almost all of the time
• It causes a man to feel distressed and frustrated, leading to a tendency to avoid sexual intimacy
Both psychological and biological factors can play a role in premature ejaculation, which often necessitates the help of a professional to establish an accurate diagnosis. Although it can be embarrassing for many men to talk about premature ejaculation, it is a common and treatable condition with predominantly promising prognoses.
Premature ejaculation is a common sexual disorder. While the results of different studies vary from one another, it is estimated that approximately 25 to 35 percent of men experience premature ejaculation at least once in their lives.
Although the exact cause of premature ejaculation is not well-understood, it involves a complex interaction of psychological and biological factors.
Psychological causes may include:
• Early sexual experiences
• Sexual abuse
• Poor body image
• Worrying about premature ejaculation
• Feelings of guilt
Other factors may include:
• Erectile dysfunction
• Relationship problems
Biological causes may include:
• Abnormal hormone levels
• Abnormal levels of brain chemicals (neurotransmitters)
• Inflammation/infection of the prostate/urethra
• Inherited traits
In addition to the aforementioned causes, certain risk factors can increase the likelihood of experiencing premature ejaculation, including:
• Erectile Dysfunction — Men who occasionally or consistently have trouble getting or maintaining an erection may have an increased risk of premature ejaculation, especially if worrying about losing an erection causes them to rush through sexual encounters.
• Stress — Emotional or mental strain in any area of life can limit a man’s ability to relax and focus during sexual activity, increasing the risk of premature ejaculation.
Yes, doctors can help with premature ejaculation. A male sexual health specialist can implement a variety of treatments and therapies to help reduce the frequency of premature ejaculation, which may include behavioral techniques, topical anesthetics, medications, and counseling.
Behavioral techniques include:
• Pelvic floor exercises
• Stop and start method
• Stop and squeeze method
Other treatments include:
• Condoms (to decrease penis sensitivity)
Medications, such as:
• Topical anesthetics
• Oral medications
• Phosphodiesterase-5 inhibitors
Counseling is often the most effective when used in combination with other treatments, such as medication or behavioral techniques.
