Premature Ejaculation Surgery – A Last Resort

by Nick Swanson

Premature ejaculation is the most common sexual dysfunction among men under forty. Most men have experienced it at least once for some reason or another, but those with serious recurring problems likely need to find a solution in order to be happy. While premature ejaculation surgery is rarely considered, it does exist for those with extreme problems. Before premature ejaculation surgery is likely to be attempted, all other options available are usually attempted seriously and even then it is only normally done to those who can only last for less than a minute or two. In most cases physicians will be highly reluctant to perform premature ejaculation surgery.

Premature Ejaculation Surgery

There are a number of options that you should consider before you even think of trying Premature Ejaculation Surgery. Your physician will likely recommend steps like exercises and counseling before moving you to prescription medications. Normally, SSRI drugs will handle the problem when nothing else will and eliminate the need for premature ejaculation surgery. In some rare cases, however, premature ejaculation surgery may be the only option left that you haven’t tried. But there are a number of things to keep in mind before you take this major step towards overcoming the condition.

Premature ejaculation surgery is rarely performed due to the inherent risks involved. It’s an invasive procedure that aims to desensitize the penis by removing or disconnecting specific nerves within it. Obviously, premature ejaculation surgery will be a tricky procedure and one that most surgeons will caution against. The results could lead to a penis that is desensitized and enables the man to last much longer during intercourse, but could leave him unable to achieve an erection, essentially defeating the purpose of having premature ejaculation surgery in the first place. There’s also another factors concerning the procedure that many fail to realize.

Simply put, Premature Ejaculation Surgery is often only a temporary fix that lasts for about six months or so before the sensations in the penis return to normal. Multiple surgeries are advised against since premature ejaculation surgery usually causes a buildup of scar tissue in addition to the other risks. All of this is in addition to the fact that it costs a huge amount of money. For most men, premature ejaculation surgery is a last ditch effort made out of desperation. While it may be effective, most are better off trying to find natural or at least less invasive options for treating their issue.
