Premature ejaculation (PE) occurs when a man ejaculates (comes) too quickly during intercourse. Often, men with premature ejaculation find it difficult to hold back long enough for their partners to reach orgasm. This sometimes leads to sexual dissatisfaction, tensions in the relationship, and a feeling of shame or anxiety. However, if you or your partner are suffering from premature ejaculation (PE), you are not alone. Between 30 and 70% of men have premature ejaculation; it is the most common sexual problem in men.
Why does PE happen? The exact cause is not known. In most cases, it is believed to be psychological, but new information suggests that it may also have a physiological aspect. PE is more common in younger men.
Only between 1 and 12% of men with PE are considering premature ejaculation treatment in Delhi. But PE can be treated and here’s how.
Techniques to try at home (used alone or in combination):
- The pressure technique: when the man is about to ejaculate, his partner exerts strong and rapid pressure on the tip of his penis to prevent ejaculation. Do not attempt this exercise after ejaculation has started.
- The stop & go technique: just when the man is about to ejaculate, he and his partner stop moving and the man tries to relax to control his ejaculation. The break allows the man to become more aware of his sensations just before ejaculation. Eventually, this will help him condition his response to sexual stimulation so that he can wait longer.
Don’t worry if these techniques don’t work immediately; weeks of practice are sometimes necessary to master them. You may wish to consult a sexologist in Delhi to help you manage them. A sex specialist in Delhi may be able to help you with personal or couple problems.
If you’ve tried all of these techniques and they don’t seem to be working, it’s probably time to see a sexologist in Delhi who can suggest other treatments, such as counseling or medication. Currently, in India, there are few drugs approved to treat PE; however, some are being studied: topical anesthetics (to numb the penis in the hope of delaying ejaculation), SSRIs (a type of depression medication that is believed to block the brain chemicals responsible for ejaculation), certain tricyclic antidepressants and pain medications, and PDE-5 inhibitors (better known as sildenafil [Viagra ® ], tadalafil [Cialis ® ].
