Premature ejaculation is a problem that many men experience. Unfortunately, most men try to avoid the problem by not talking about it with their doctor or their significant other. Avoiding the problem makes it a difficult one to solve. Talking with your doctor helps you to determine a treatment of premature ejaculation that works best for you. Your doctor will most likely ask you a variety of personal questions that you will have to answer if you wish to get to the root of the problem. You may be surprised to discover that most premature ejaculation comes from psychological issues.
Treatment of premature ejaculation that involves psychological issues often includes therapy sessions. Therapy sessions can be individuals, group, or couple related. If you find yourself stressed out from work or your relationship, it can make achieving an erection very difficult. You can overcome this stress through a variety of techniques including breathing exercises, stretches, yoga, and even counseling. If your relationship is causing you stress, it is best to seek couples counseling to overcome these issues before they cause irreparable damages. Although you may feel embarrassed discussion impotency with a counselor and with your significant other, it can help you get your life back in order.
Your doctor will discuss treatment of premature ejaculation before any decisions are made final. If therapy does not work, you may want to talk to your doctor about the use of devices and medication. Devices such as vacuum pumps encourage blood to flow into the penis. You then place a ring at the base of the penis to help prolong your erection. Medications used to treat premature ejaculation include Viagra, Cialis, and Levitra. Keep in mind that these medications may cause priapism, an erection that lasts longer than four hours, which will need immediate medical attention.
Finally, treatment of premature ejaculation may need surgery. If you are unable to achieve an erection due to poor circulation, surgery may be necessary to repair blocked arteries in the pelvis. Some surgeries allow the implantation of a prosthetic in the penis. The prosthetic allows you to achieve an erection whenever you need for as long as you need it. However, the success rate of such surgery is often low and can lead to nerve damage in the penis. Make sure you try all other options before you opt for surgery. Your doctor can give you a number of recommendations and discuss concerns you may have.
