What is Premature Ejaculation?
There’s no accepted set time when a man should ejaculate when having sex, but it’s likely happening too fast if you have an orgasm before beginning intercourse or within a minute of starting.
It can be an issue because men lose their erection upon ejaculation and are no longer able to continue sexual activity. It might not have been long enough for you – or your partner – to enjoy sex.
Estimates can vary on the prevalence of P.E, but around 1 in 3 men say they deal with P.E at some point in their lives.
Premature Ejaculation Symptoms
The primary symptom of premature ejaculation is the inability to delay ejaculation for up to a minute after penetration.
However, premature ejaculation can affect all sexual situations, including masturbation.
Premature ejaculation is classified in two different ways;
Lifelong premature ejaculation is something that happens for almost every sexual encounter you have, going back to the very first one.
Acquired premature ejaculation can develop after having sexual experiences in the past without any ejaculation problems.
Many men might feel they have premature ejaculation symptoms, but their symptoms don’t align with the diagnostic criteria for the condition. Rather, they could have natural variable premature ejaculation. This is when there are times when ejaculation happens too quickly as well as it happening normally.
Premature Ejaculation Causes
The precise cause of premature ejaculation remains unknown.
There was a time it was considered a purely psychological condition, but now we know that it involves a combination of psychological and biological factors.
The psychological causes of P.E are:
- Sexual abuse
- Early sexual experiences
- Poor body image
- Worrying about premature ejaculation
- Guilty feelings that cause you to rush through sexual intercourse
The other factors that play a part are;
Men who are anxious about their ability to achieve and maintain an erection during sexual intercourse may develop a pattern of rushing to ejaculate. Such patterns are hard to break away from.
Men who deal with premature ejaculation might develop anxiety problems – either problems about their sexual performance or anxiety over other issues.
If you have had positive sexual encounters in the past without premature ejaculation issues, then it’s possible that any interpersonal issues between you and your partner could be contributing to your premature ejaculation.
The biological causes of premature ejaculation include;
- Hormonal imbalances
- Inherited traits
- Inflammation or infection of the urethra or prostate
Premature Ejaculation Treatment
Premature ejaculation will generally get better on its own. You may not require treatment for the condition.
Practicing distraction methods and relaxation techniques can help to delay ejaculation too.
Some men may benefit from reducing their use of alcohol, drugs, and tobacco to better control their ejaculations.
Your doctor might advise you and your partner to practice some techniques known to delay ejaculation. For example, you might want to learn how to identify and control the sensations that signify ejaculation. You may also want to better communicate with your partner to reduce stimulation.
Condoms that reduce the sensation in the penis may help, as can trying out different positions during intercourse.
Counselling and behavioral therapy can help if the problem is caused by anxiety.
Antidepressant medications may be used to treat erectile dysfunction.
There are many different creams, gels, and sprays available to treat erectile dysfunction. They work by reducing sensation.
Premature Ejaculation FAQs
Premature ejaculation is the most common sexual problem for men. It affects old and young men indiscriminately. Around 1 in 3 men will have premature ejaculation problems at some point.
It doesn’t. It affects any and all men. However, young men may be more likely to develop the condition as older men are more experienced and better able to control themselves during intercourse.
Some medical conditions can affect sexual performance, ejaculation, and fertility. This includes diabetes, prostate cancer, multiple sclerosis, and an underactive thyroid.
If the condition has caused a negative impact on your relationship or is leaving you feeling stressed then you should consult your GP. If you have a serious case of premature ejaculation it’s possible it might be caused by underlying conditions, such as high blood pressure. Please don’t be ashamed or embarrassed about consulting your doctor. It’s a common condition and one that they will have seen – and treated – several times in the past.
It’s best to consult a sexual medicine expert or a urologist about the condition. Your regular family physician or a psychiatrist may also be able to help.
Erectile dysfunction is when a man is unable to achieve and maintain an erection. Premature ejaculation is when a man has no problem getting an erection, but ejaculates too quickly.
If a man has premature ejaculation and his ejaculate fails to reach the woman’s vagina, then he will not be able to get his partner pregnant. The couple could have to turn to artificial insemination in that case.
