Can premature Ejaculation be controlled?
Premature ejaculation occurs when a man does not have control over ejaculation, and as a result, he and his partner are not sexually satisfied. It can happen in as little as 30 seconds to a minute, and may even occur before penetration. The average time it takes before a man ejaculates during intercourse is about four to five minutes.
The exact cause is not known, but it is often rooted in physical, psychological, or emotional issues such as anxiety, stress or depression.
Types of premature ejaculation
Primary premature ejaculation: Where you have always had the problem.
Secondary premature ejaculation: Where you recently developed the problem.
- Counselling is recommended to treat premature ejaculation. This may include psychotherapy, as well as learning ways to communicate with your partner about sexual dysfunction.
- Medications are used to treat depression and stress.
- Numbing creams are used directly on the genitals to help control premature ejaculation.
There are a number of self-help techniques you can try before seeking medical help.
- Masturbating an hour or two before having sex.
- Using a thick condom to help decrease sensation.
- Taking a deep breath to briefly shut down the ejaculatory reflex.
- Having sex with your partner on top.
- Taking breaks during sex and distracting yourself by thinking about something completely different.
- Practice pelvic floor muscle exercise.
- Perform squeeze technique.
- Talk therapy.
- The Stop and Start Method.
Techniques and therapy in detail:
The stop and start method
It helps you last longer while making love to your partner. This technique is comprised of three phases: First, you need to become excited sexually with the help of a partner or by masturbating. Then, at the point before reaching your climax, you need to stop and hold back. Next, take some deep breaths and relax. Once you are calm and in command of your emotions, repeat the process again. The method involves learning to understand when you are approaching orgasm and trains your body to control timing to prevent premature ejaculation.
It aims at strengthening the pelvic floor muscles.one approach of finding the muscle is by sitting on the toilet seat and urinating. Stopping the urine flow leads to the tightening of the pelvic muscles. Start the exercise by emptying the bladder completely. Then tighten the pelvic muscles for nearly 10 seconds. Relax the muscles for another 10 seconds. Repeat the exercise three times a day with 10 repetitions each time.
The squeeze technique
This practice requires a lot of practice and uninterrupted time. During foreplay, have your partner squeeze the end of a penis, at the point where the head joins the shaft. After the squeeze is released, wait 20 to 30 seconds, and then continue with foreplay. Repeat the exercise three times every week until you notice improvements.
Talking to your mental health provider about experiences and relationships can be fruitful. Known as talk therapy or counselling, these sessions help you tackle performance-related anxiety and overcome stress while making love to your partner.
