Premature Ejaculation Treatments

You may not believe that premature ejaculation (PE) is a prevalent problem in men. Alas, the fact is that almost 1 out of 3 men in all age groups past puberty experience premature ejaculation during sexual activity.

Thankfully, there are treatments and remedies that can help. Here is a look at a few of the most popular premature ejaculation treatments:

Mental Training or Therapy

Much of the root causes of premature ejaculation is believed to be mental or psychologically related. Stress, anxiety, and other mental triggers can be directly related to over-stimulation and premature ejaculation. Talking with a psychologist or sexual therapist may give you the counseling you need to help reduce performance anxiety.

Stimulation Control

Premature ejaculation occurs in many instances when the penis is hyper-sensitive to stimulation. Other sexual activities other than direct penis stimulation can be used to prevent early ejaculation.

For instance, the male can focus on pleasing his woman using toys, oral, or manual stimulation of her genitals and other arousal areas, avoiding direct intercourse and preventing ejaculation. Continually practice sexual activities that eventually build up to intercourse once both partners are satisfied with the experience.

Squeeze Technique

A self-technique to controlling premature ejaculation is the squeeze technique. Using the squeeze technique, you begin sexual activity as usual. Once you feel almost ready to ejaculate you or your partner squeezes the tip or the base of the penis for several seconds until the ejaculatory urge passes. Then continue sexual foreplay or stimulation and repeat as squeeze process as necessary.

Kegal Exercises

Practicing Kegal exercises is another way of treating premature ejaculation. Kegal exercises flex the pubococcygeus muscle, or the PC muscle, which controls much function of the ejaculation process. When ejaculating, control of this muscle is lost. Thus, with regular Kegal workouts, one can train and control the PC muscle, and gain some or much more voluntary control over ejaculation.

Topical Creams

Many sufferers of premature ejaculation have been successfully treated using topical anesthetics. Creams that contain prilocaine or lidocaine help to dull the sensation of the penis. Creams should be used a short time before intercourse. Once the cream has been applied and the penis has lost enough sensation, the cream should be completely wiped off before intercourse. Sometimes the woman may feel slight desensitization in her genital area as well.

If, however, both partners find that anesthetic creams work, then it can be continually used as a premature ejaculation treatment. Talk to your doctor about a prescription.


In many premature ejaculation cases, pharmacological or herbal remedies can be a successful treatment. Medications can be used to slow down the arousal process and the speed at which one reaches orgasm. Oftentimes successful medications are anti-depressant medications such as Prozac, Zoloft, or other selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRI's) and can have other side effects as well. However, if the desired results can be achieved through medication, then it is certainly a potential treatment option. Talk to your physician about all the possible side effects and whether this may be a treatment option for your situation.
