The Truth about Premature Ejaculation

by in Mens Health June 8, 2023

Premature ejaculation has been a major sexual problem for men & yet it is talked far less about than erectile dysfunction. The main reason for this is that the little blue pill (Viagra, Cialis etc) has become part of the mainstream due to the huge media spends that its manufacturers have used to spread awareness about ED & consequently achieved huge sales for its product.

premature ejaculation on the other hand has long been shrouded in mystery & myths mainly due to long held false beliefs about this medical condition & the key word here is medical condition, most people believe that premature ejaculation has been due to psychological factors or other activities like masturbating (especially if you start early) or that premature ejaculation only affects young males who are not sexually mature etc.

The reality is that while some psychological issues may trigger PE, there are biological causes as well for this condition & some men are just born with it. But the good news has been that it can be treated in most cases through a mix of counseling & medication. Doctors are now experimenting with using SSRIs (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors) which are antidepressants (the side effects of which can include delayed ejaculation but also cause ED), & other numbing agents which reduce the sensitivity of the penis.

These medications have some problems & limitations which include the following:

  • SSRIs can cause loss of Libido (loss of or reduction of sexual desire).
  • Erectile Dysfunction (loss of or weak erection).
  • Numbing agents may also numb the genital region of the female partner, which can lead to loss of sensitivity & pleasure.

There is no want to be embarrassed if you suffer from premature ejaculation as you are not alone (about 30% of men suffer from this condition) & instead of suffering alone & being depressed about it, you need to consult a qualified medical professional who can guide you towards the right type of treatment so that you can be on your way to enjoying your sex life with your partner & be under no pressure to perform.
