[toc]Premature ejaculation is a common problem among men and affects a man’s sexual life adversely. The ejaculation happens even before penetration, or soon after within a very short time. This can be very frustrating if it happens too often and can cause a lot of embarrassment; even straining the relationship between a couple. The cause of premature ejaculation is more often psychological than physical.
Stress, anxiety, infrequent sexual activity and bad habits are some of the main causes behind premature ejaculation. Most men may suffer from this problem when they just start getting sexually active, but with experience they learn how to control themselves. But, for those who do not learn and cannot control premature ejaculation, it is important to learn how to deal with this problem. Given here are some ways that can help a great deal.
Ways To Deal With Premature Ejaculation
Using condoms while having sexual intercourse can help reduce the sensitivity of the male organ and can help prevent premature ejaculation. Some men even benefit by using two or more condoms at the same time.
This can decrease the effectiveness of the condom, so make sure your partner is using some method of birth control. There are special condoms available, called climax control condoms, which have a slightly numbing effect and can help prevent premature ejaculation.
Certain medications can help treat premature ejaculation. Take your doctor’s advice in this regard. You may be prescribed antidepressants such as Zoloft, Prozac, Anafranil, etc. which work by delaying orgasms.
These medications have other side effects and should only be taken under a doctor’s supervision. You will be given low doses of these medications, which have to be taken every day. There are some herbal medicines also that can help you deal with premature ejaculation.
Learn The Squeeze Technique
This technique has been helpful to almost 98% of the couples who have tried it. When you are about to ejaculate, your partner needs to squeeze a point that is located at the tip of the penis, just where the head joins the shaft.
This point has to be squeezed for a few seconds till you lose the urge to ejaculate. Normal sexual activity can be resumed after this and you will be able to prevent premature ejaculation this way.
Apply Topical Anesthetic Creams
There are many anesthetic creams available that can be used to deal with premature ejaculation. They mostly contain lidocaine or prilocaine that help to reduce the sensitivity of the penis and delay ejaculation.
You should apply these creams just a little while before starting intercourse and wipe them off later. Some people are allergic to these creams, so you should stop their use if your skin gets irritated.
Learn The Start-Stop Technique
You can deal with premature ejaculation by using the start-stop technique. It involves learning to recognize the premonitory sensation, which is the point where you are about to ejaculate. Once you learn this, you can stop as soon as you start getting the premonitory sensation during intercourse. Allow yourself to calm down a bit, and then start again. You will slowly begin to get better control over the situation and manage to delay ejaculation for a longer period.
