Treating Premature Ejaculation (PE)

Spread the love

For a long time now, science has been trying to figure out the best answer for the question; How do you stop premature ejaculation (PE)? How do we end this misery that has taken a better hold of man’s dignity and even perhaps his “worth”?

If you are presently experiencing this problem, know for sure that you are not alone, there are so many men out there going through the same problem as you. To most men, this is a nightmare — something that has caused them so much shame and embarrassment.

Going back to the roots…

In the earlier days, premature ejaculation was thought to be a physiological drawback but nowadays, doctors believe that the condition can also be caused by other several factors which we will discuss in the following paragraph.

First, let us understand the term Premature Ejaculation. Technically, PE is a condition whereby a man is unable to control the timing of his ejaculation during sex. He ejaculates earlier than the ideal time. According to sex therapists, there are factors that are said to contribute to premature ejaculation — namely:

  • Psychological
  • Biological

Common Psychological Causes of PE

Early sexual patterns or experiences may lead to the development of some patterns that may in future become hard to control or change. For example, it is normal to see teenagers hanging out, getting intimate and eventually making out with each other. As they engage in sex, they may have hurried in order to reach orgasm to avoid getting caught.

Another scenario that can increase your tendency to rush through sexual intercourse is the “feeling of guilt”.

Relationship problems also contribute to premature ejaculation. Interpersonal problems between you and your spouse could be a primary cause for premature ejaculation in most men.

Anxiety can also make a man have PE. If you look at statistics, you will realize that most men who have experienced or are currently experiencing premature ejaculation suffer from anxiety. Other psychological causes of PE are Depression, Trauma, and Stress

Biological Causes

There are a number of biological factors that lead to premature ejaculation in most men. Some of these are;

    • Abnormal hormone levels in the body
    • Neurotransmitters acting abnormally
    • Problems in the prostate or having an inflammation or infection in the urethra
    • Thyroid problems
  • Inherited traits

40+% of the men suffering from PE usually ejaculates under 2 minutes of sex. The average length of a sexual intercourse should be about 7.3 minutes according to usatoday


Behind Premature Ejaculation

There is a key chemical component that plays a vital role in modulating and controlling the ejaculation process. This chemical is called Serotonin. Studies show that having low levels of serotonin may lead to PE. In other words, increasing the level of serotonin in your body might help combat PE.

How To Treat Premature Ejaculation

There are synthesized treatments that can help you overcome premature ejaculation. The following are recommendations by sex therapist for combating PE:

Delayed orgasm through Kegels exercise

Kegel exercise can help to delay ejaculation in Men. Basically, kegel exercise helps to develop the muscles around the pelvic area. It strengthens the pelvic floor muscles which may be weak due to several factors. In 2012, there was a controlled study that was conducted on premature ejaculation. Men who had premature ejaculation and who completed a 12-week course on pelvic floor exercise showed an improvement in their ejaculation response time.


Many think condoms are primarily to serve as a protection against diseases and pregnancies. Well, tell you what? condoms serve other reasons as well,  one of which is to help in delay ejaculation. With a  normal or thick (recommended) condom, you could reduce the sensitivity during sexual intercourse, thus, delay ejaculation.


Are you the type that doesn’t spend time in foreplay? If yes, then that could be a reason why you are suffering from premature ejaculation.  It is agreed among sex therapist that foreplay is very helpful in preventing premature ejaculation — simply due to the fact that it trains you to gain control over your anxiety with regards to sex.

Final verdict

It is no longer news that premature ejaculation has torn so many relationships apart, breaking many marriages and left some men shattered and broken. I feel really bad for those who are afflicted with this sexual problem. The good news is, there are lots of alternatives i.e. ( homemade aphrodisiacs or erection and performance pills and medications that have proven effective in curing this disease.  See a sex therapist or shop around for male performance supplements. If you placed on a treatment, be consistent with it until you see 100% improvement.
