Premature Ejaculation


Premature ejaculation is one of the most common sexual problems in men. Almost one in 4 men can experience premature ejaculation. If premature ejaculation occurs only occasionally, it is not a problem. However, it will be a big problem if it keeps happening over and over, even whenever you have sex with a partner.

Generally men feel embarrassed to talk about this issue, even for treatment. In fact, premature ejaculation is a disease that can be cured. With some medications, consultations and techniques while having sex, it can help you improve the quality of your relationship with your partner.

Symptoms of Premature Ejaculation

Signs and symptoms of premature ejaculation are ejaculations that occur before you and your partner expect, causing problems or stress. However, problems can occur in all sexual situations, even during masturbation.

Doctors generally classify premature ejaculation in primary and secondary premature ejaculation.

Symptoms of primary premature ejaculation are indicated by:

Ejaculation that always or almost always occurs within a minute or less at the time of penetration.
Inability to delay ejaculation when or when just penetrating.
Negative consequences, such as stress, frustration or avoid sexual intercourse.

While symptoms of premature ejaculation secondary include:

Characterized by persistent or repetitive ejaculation with minimal prior stimulation, or shortly after penetration, and before you expect it.
Causes stress and relationship problems.
Occurs after you experience satisfaction in sexual intercourse without ejaculation problems.
Causes & Risk Factors

The cause of early ejaculation is closely related to psychological factors and erectile dysfunction. Here is the translation.

Causes of Premature Ejaculation

The exact cause of premature ejaculation is unknown. Although previously known this condition is a psychological problem, we now know that premature ejaculation is more complicated and associated with complex psychological and biological factors.

Psychological causes

Some doctors believe that previous sexual experiences may determine patterns that can be difficult to change in the future, such as:

Situations where you may have to climax immediately.
Guilt that increases your tendency to rush when making connections.

Biological causes

Some biological factors may contribute to premature ejaculation, including:

Abnormal hormone levels
Not normal levels of brain chemicals called neurotransmitters
Not normally reflex activity ejaculation system
Specific thyroid problems
Swelling and infection of the prostate or urethra

Rare causes of premature ejaculation include:

Damage to the nervous system due to surgery or trauma
Stop from the use of narcotics or a drug called trifluoperazine that is used to treat anxiety and other mental health problems
Risk factors

Various risk factors that can increase the risk of premature ejaculation include:

Experiencing erectile dysfunction
Having a health problem that causes you to feel anxious when having sex, for example heart disease.
Certain drugs that affect brain function
How to Prevent & Treatment

In some cases, premature ejaculation can be caused by weak communication between partners or misconceptions of female and male sexual function differences. Women need more stimulation than men to achieve orgasm, and this difference causes a tendency to increase the pressure during intercourse. For many men, feeling the pressure during intercourse increases the risk of premature ejaculation.

Open communication between partners and willingness to try different approaches to help both partners achieve satisfaction, can help reduce conflicts and anxiety. If you are not satisfied with your partner, tell your partner about your problem. Try approaching the topic of your romance and avoid angering your partner for your dissatisfaction.

If you are unable to solve your sexual problems independently, contact your doctor. Your doctor may recommend to see a therapist who can help you and your spouse improve the quality of your relationship and your partner.

Traditional Medicine

Its arginine content can strengthen the sperm endurance and prevent sterility. Anetol and boron compounds also play an important role in maintaining male and female reproductive health.
