Premature Ejaculation

Premature Ejaculation - What Is It?

Premature ejaculation is when the man ejaculates too soon during sexual activity. It is true that too soon is very subjective, but it's generally thought of as when the man is ejaculating before he wants to. It can be present throughout a man's sexual life, or it can develop as a man ages.

It is a very common condition and is not harmful to health but it can cause frustration and lack of confidence in sexual relationships.

What Causes Premature Ejaculation?

The issue can have a number of different causes. It is treatable and you can try out some techniques at home, before seeking medical help, but you should speak to your GP if you have any other related symptoms which could indicate another health condition.

Premature ejaculation can be caused by the following:

Depression, stress or other psychological illness

Particularly among younger men, anxiety and stress is a common cause of this issue.

Prostate conditions

If you have problems with your prostate it can effect ejaculation. If you think this could be the issue then you need to speak to your GP before taking any treatments.

Neurological conditions

Ejaculation is a reflex which is controled from your spine level, so if you have any kind of neurological condition, like sclerosis, it could cause premature ejaculation.

Erectile dysfunction

If you have erectile dysfunction, it can also cause premature ejaculation.

How Would My Doctor Diagnose Premature Ejaculation?

It is normally defined as ejaculating within a minute of penetration, but unless it is being caused by another health condition, it is not something which will cause you health problems. It becomes a problem if it affects your relationships.

For a diagnosis, your GP will need to ask several questions, such as:

  • Does it only happen on occasion or all the time?
  • Have you any other health conditions, like prostate or thyroid problems, or anxiety and depression?
  • How is your sexual relationship?

How Can I Prevent Premature Ejaculation?

There are a number of different methods for treating premature ejaculation. For example, you can try a number of different control and delay practices at home.

There is medication available to treat premature ejaculation as well. It is usually only prescribed if other treatments haven't worked for you.

Can I Cure My Premature Ejaculation?

Yes, it's important to find the right techniques and treatments which work best for you and in most cases it can be significantly improved.

If you have been suffering with this condition all of your life then you need to speak to your GP. They will be able to advise on whether you need to take any kind of medication and can give you instructions to help you get the best results.

What Other Treatment Options Are There For Premature Ejaculation?

There are two main treatments available - delay techniques and prescription medicines. You should always try techniques before you opt for medication.

What Techniques Can I Use To Delay Ejaculation?

It's important to be patient when you start trying out delay techniques as they will take practice. It might take a lot of practice before you achieve the desired results. The aim is to control ejaculation so you only ejaculate when you want to.

The best delay technique is known as stop-go technique. It could be carried out with your partner, or alone. The stop-go technique basically means stopping or pausing stimulation prior to ejaculation. The idea is to pause to regain control, and then carry on again.

When you have mastered the technique you can take it further by practicing in a shower, or with a lubricant. The aim is to last for around three minutes.

The next stage is not to stop simulation altogether, but to just slow down until you regain control.

Medicines Which Can Delay Ejaculation

If some of the other treatments have not worked for you, then your GP may prescribe medication to help resolve the issue. Medication is largely only prescribed to patients who regularly ejaculate within two minutes of penetration.

The medications used come in two forms generally - SSRIs (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors) such as Priligy, and then medicine which provides a localised anaesthesia for the penis, such as Fortacin.

Fortacin Premature Ejaculation Spray

Fortacin is a spray which works by providing anesthesia to the penis. It blocks the nerve impulses so can increase time to ejaculation around five times. It is easy to use and appeals to many men.

Priligy Premature Ejaculation Tablets

Priligy is a tablet which is used for premature ejaculation and works by increasing the action of serotonin. It can be taken around 1 to 3 hours before sexual activity.

Are There Non-Medication Treatments For Premature Ejaculation?

Yes, this is a condition which can be improved greatly without medication in many cases. In fact, some patients with other health conditions might not be able to take the medication. Some health conditions and medications affect the suitability of Fortacin and Priligy. Always consult with your GP if you are not sure.

Check earlier in the article for other techniques and methods.

Is It Safe To Buy Premature Ejaculation Treatments Online?

It can be safe but you should always do your own research to make sure the website is operating legally, before you order online medicines.

Here is how to check if a website is legitimate:

  • Check that the website is authorised by the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA). The site must be displaying the MHRA logo.
  • Check that the dispensing pharmacy is registered with the General Pharmaceutical Council (GPhC) and is showing the Registered Pharmacy logo.
  • Always check for reviews and social comments about the site as well.

What Will I Need To Tell The Doctor?

The questions the doctor will ask will largely depend on what medicine it is you are requesting. Some medicines are more likely to interact with others.

You need to take your time and fill in all of the information that you can, on the medical questionnaire when you request your order, so that the doctors can make a full assessment.
