If you are having problems with premature ejaculation, you are not alone. It is one of the most common problems men have in the bedroom. Many believe it is a serious problem and they feel isolated and alone. While there can be serious causes, it is usually a temporary problem that can be solved fairly easily. It is also a common problem and even if you feel alone, you are absolutely not. Many men have dealt with premature ejaculation and find their sex lives are much better once they have conquered the problem. They grow more intimate with their partner and enjoy sex a lot more in the long run, even if they were initially uncomfortable facing the problem. So why do men premature ejaculate?
There are numerous reasons. Some are emotional. Some people feel very anxious about sex. They might have grown up in an environment where sex was not viewed as something normal and healthy. They might have had a fear of getting caught messing around with a girlfriend or masturbating. For them, sex has always been something that is supposed to be rushed through so nobody catches you doing it. Their bodies learn this behavior and by the time they are in healthy, loving relationships, their bodies still respond the same way. They rush to finish, even in the privacy of their own homes.
Other people associate sex with feelings of guilt. They might have learned it was wrong, so they feel ashamed doing it, even once they are adults in a committed relationship. Others are concerned about lasting long enough during the act. They worry about maintaining an erection and satisfying their partners, so they end up rushing through and ejaculating before they have a chance to fail. All of these reasons are emotional and mental, but they can be changed by reframing one’s thinking.
There are occasions when premature ejaculation is caused by physical problems. Sometimes, medications and illnesses can cause premature ejaculation. In rare instances, nerve damage has occurred and it leads to ejaculatory problems. Sometimes men have heightened sensitivity, especially if there are issues with hormones. Hormone imbalances are one of the most common, but easily remedied, causes of premature ejaculation. If you suspect your problem is physical, it is important to speak with your doctor as soon as possible. Physical problems are sometimes easier to fix than emotional ones, so you might not have to suffer for very long.
