What Is Premature Ejaculation?
Premature ejaculation occurs when ejaculation happens before or very shortly after the start of sexual intercourse. It’s uncontrollable and typically occurs with very little stimulation. It can feel embarrassing and, in some cases, cause anxiety that prohibits a satisfactory sexual experience for you and your partner.
What Causes Premature Ejaculation?
Although it is one of the most common forms of sexual dysfunction in men, medical researchers haven’t identified a specific cause of premature ejaculation.
Most men learn to prolong their ejaculations over time with experience and age, but premature ejaculation can occur without warning or control. Several factors contribute to premature ejaculation. However, the causes vary from person to person and from situation to situation and can include:
- An extended time between ejaculations
- Intercourse with a new partner
- Anxiety or depression
- Side effects of certain medications
- Hormone imbalance
The team at Urology of Greater Atlanta offers customized treatments to resolve premature ejaculation.
What Are the Available Treatments for Premature Ejaculation?
Some men can learn to control their ejaculation as they increase their sexual experience. You might also find that using a condom can reduce stimulation enough to delay your orgasm while still providing a pleasurable sexual experience.
Depending on your needs, a urologist can prescribe medicine to delay your ejaculation. They can offer oral and topical medication.
Your doctor might also recommend pelvic physical therapy, including Kegel exercises. Strengthening your pelvic floor can increase your control over the muscles that stimulate ejaculation.
