Premature ejaculation is a common type of sexual disorder that affects men of all ages around the world. It is estimated that it affects 30% of UK men. Premature ejaculation is usually diagnosed when ejaculation occurs within two minutes from the beginning of sexual stimulation. It often causes great embarrassment to sufferers, leading them to avoid seeking treatment. However, some form of treatment should be sought if the problem occurs frequently.
Causes of premature ejaculation
Premature ejaculation is a relatively new recognised condition, and as such there is little information in relation to its causes available to experts. It is believed that the vast majority of cases are caused by psychological factors, such as confidence issues, anxiety, guilt and stress. It has been noted that men with less sexual experience encounter this problem more often. Physical triggers may also contribute, such as spinal cord injuries, multiple sclerosis and vascular conditions.
Treatment for premature ejaculation
Until very recently, there were no prescription medications available to help with this condition. Men seeking treatment needed to undergo some form of counselling to help identify possible psychological roots to the problem, and often they needed to spend a lot of time doing exercises to improve ejaculatory time, such as the “stop and start” method and the Masters-Johnson technique. Some men opted for desensitising remedies which could be effective but tended to dull the pleasurable sensation of sex. Over the last few years, a prescription medication called Priligy has been developed and launched, which is clinically proven to increase ejaculation time by 200% to 300%. Read More
