If you’re a man who’s wondering how to treat premature ejaculation, you’re not alone. Many men share your problem. How severe the problem is varies from man to man, but the good news is that there are many options for treatment. Some men ejaculate early because they were taught to have sex quickly by early experiences where they might get caught having intercourse. Other men have a genetic predisposition for early ejaculation. If your father had that problem, you’re more likely to have it, as well. There are many other men, though, who don’t seem to have a reason for premature Ejaculation other than increased sensitivity and response in the genital area.
Knowing the cause is important when considering how to treat premature ejaculation, because there are many options and some of them work much better for specific causes. For example, men who have past trauma or experiences that have caused them to have premature ejaculation could benefit from sessions with a sexual therapist. Exploring their thoughts and feelings on the matter could help them work through their need to ejaculate quickly and go a long way toward helping them last longer in the bedroom.
Men with a genetic predisposition or a sensitivity issue can be helped through two different avenues: techniques they can use at home, and antidepressants given under the care of a doctor. The antidepressants are used in some men because one of their side effects is a lowered ability to have an orgasm. Generally that’s a bad thing, but it can be great for men who normally ejaculation too early. Often times, it gives them a good balance. It’s not wise to take antidepressants unless you’re under a doctor’s care, though, so be sure to discuss your treatment options.
If you want to try techniques at home when you’re trying to figure out how to treat premature ejaculation, you can try distracting yourself when you get close to orgasm or starting and stopping during intercourse. You can also practice starting and stopping on your own through masturbation. Any time you delay ejaculation through the use of a technique, you start to retrain your body to wait longer before reaching orgasm. Over time, you’ll find that you have to stop less and distract yourself less, and you’re still able to last longer. That can help build your self-confidence in the bedroom and also provide a very satisfactory experience for your partner.
