Premature Ejaculation FAQ

Most men have the pleasure of enjoying sex without the distraction and frustration of premature ejaculation (PE). But for many men, this is a recurring issue that affects the quality of their sex life, as well as their self-confidence and even their self-image.

For those men who do suffer from premature ejaculation, there are usually a lot of questions about the condition. Here we have packed a few of the most FAQs about premature ejaculation.

What is Premature Ejaculation?

When a man reaches orgasm, ejaculation usually occurs. While this is a perfectly normal sexual response, premature ejaculation occurs when a man ejaculates with little or no stimulation – and well before the female partner reaches her orgasm.

Sex should be a mutually satisfactory experience, and when a man consistently ejaculates before his partner reaches orgasm, thus ending sexual intercourse, frustration and ill feelings can become recurrent.

If I Ejaculate Too Quickly Do I Have Premature Ejaculation?

Just because you reach orgasm and ejaculate too quickly once in a while doesn't mean you have premature ejaculation. Premature ejaculation is usually diagnosed when a man consistently ejaculates too quickly before his partner, which causes distress between both parties.

What Causes Premature Ejaculation?

One might as well ask what causes cancer. There is no single direct cause of premature ejaculation. However, through studies, research, and compilations of physicians' statistics, most people who suffer from premature ejaculation have a psychological or anxiety-related issue that prevents them from performing sex adequately. Fewer premature ejaculation sufferers may have physiological issues such as hormonal imbalances or an over-sensitive penis.

Can Premature Ejaculation be Cured?

The short answer is that there is a possible remedy for almost any sufferer of premature ejaculation. However, there is no single "cure" that solves all problems associated with premature ejaculation. While Viagra has become the most-used cure-all for erectile dysfunction, there is no pill that can help men who are frustrated by premature ejaculation.

However, there are many possible solutions to help prevent and stop premature ejaculation. Those remedies may include psycho or sexual therapy, herbal remedies, medical prescriptions such as anesthetic desensitizing creams or anti-depressants that inhibit the ejaculation process, and even exercises and focused thoughts that can help prevent premature ejaculation. You may have to try a variety of remedies before you find the right one for you.

Can I Prevent Premature Ejaculation Without Medication?

Yes. While there are some prescription medications that can help prevent premature ejaculation and slow down the ejaculation process, many of these have unwanted side effects. Natural remedies may include therapy, sexual technique, "squeezing" techniques and exercises of the muscles of the penis, and other natural ways.

Does Premature Ejaculation Go Away With Age?

Premature ejaculation affects about a third of all men in all age groups. Whether you're 18 or 88, it can affect you just the same. While many premature ejaculation suffers started early during puberty, also known as 'primary' premature ejaculation, many men have onset or 'secondary' premature ejaculation later in life. If you suffer from premature ejaculation, it is best to find a treatment right away rather than expecting it to go away with time.
