What is Premature Ejaculation?
Premature ejaculation is a common sexual disorder in which a man ejaculates earlier than desired during sexual intercourse, often leading to dissatisfaction and distress.
Premature ejaculation is a sexual dysfunction characterized by a man consistently ejaculating sooner than he or his partner desires during sexual activity, often occurring within one minute of penetration. This condition can lead to dissatisfaction, anxiety, and frustration in both partners. The exact cause of premature ejaculation is not always clear but can involve psychological factors, such as anxiety or relationship issues, as well as physical factors like hypersensitivity or hormonal imbalances. Treatment for premature ejaculation includes behavioral techniques, such as the start-stop method and the squeeze technique, which aim to improve ejaculatory control, as well as medications like SSRIs (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors) or topical anesthetics, which can help delay ejaculation. Seeking advice from a healthcare professional or therapist can be beneficial in addressing and managing premature ejaculation.
