What is Premature Ejaculation?
What is Premature Ejaculation? Premature ejaculation is a condition when a man ejects sperm (reaches climax) too quickly when having sex. Premature ejaculation can also be defined when ejaculation occurs before or shortly after sexual penetration.
Every man is certain to have premature ejaculation. If this happens occasionally, do not worry about it. But you are advised to see a doctor if 50 percent of sexual relations you ever do end up with premature ejaculation.
Actually there is no definite standard about the duration of sexual intercourse is good because it depends on the satisfaction of each partner. A study has been conducted regarding how long sex should last. The result, the average time for men to achieve ejaculation after penetration is about five and a half minutes.
Premature ejaculation is divided into two, namely:
- Premature premature ejaculation, the premature ejaculation that has always been experienced by a man since he first had sexual intercourse or whenever sexual intercourse.
- Premature ejaculation secondary, ie when premature ejaculation occurs in a man who previously had a history of normal ejaculation or no ejaculation problems.
Causes of Premature Ejaculation
The causes of premature ejaculation vary. This condition can be caused by psychological or physical factors. Examples of psychological problems that can cause premature ejaculation are anxiety disorders, stress, and depression. While examples of physical problems that can cause premature ejaculation are prostate and thyroid disorders. In addition, it can be caused also by side effects of illegal drug consumption.
Treatment of Premature Ejaculation
If you have premature ejaculation, do not need to go to the doctor immediately. Try to do your own handling at home, for example wearing thick condoms to lower the sensitivity of the penis, masturbate first an hour or two before intercourse, or take a deep breath when going to ejaculate.
If the above efforts still have not produced positive results, you can see a doctor. In dealing with premature ejaculation, usually the doctor will prescribe medication.
