Premature ejaculation (“PE” for short) is an issue that affects nearly one out of every three men at some point in their lives.
While it can be embarrassing and frustrating, it is highly treatable. Men who experience premature ejaculation should not hesitate to reach out for help. The physicians at Preferred Men’s Medical Center in Fort Lauderdale, FL specialize in diagnosing and treating Premature Ejaculation.
What is PE?
PE is a condition which causes the individual to ejaculate shortly after—or even prior to—sexual penetration with the need for very little stimulation. This condition can be frustrating for both the afflicted man and his partner. It can also contribute to other sexual issues, as it can cause a great deal of sexual anxiety.
Some of the factors of PE include unusually high levels of stress. Contrary to what one might expect, a man who suffers from erectile dysfunction can sometimes end up developing PE. This is because the man may begin rushing intercourse in an effort to perform before he loses his erection.
There are Two Primary Categories of Causes for Premature Ejaculation
Psychological causes can include stress, anxiety, a new sexual situation, a long period of time between ejaculation and other factors. Depression and guilt may also play a role. With psychological causes, there can be—and often is—more than one contributing factor.
Physical causes of PE can indicate a hormonal imbalance or even a physical injury. Further, certain medications can contribute to the problem, as can having an over-sensitive penis. Whatever the cause, PE is treatable and sometimes will resolve itself without the need for treatment.
Safe and Effective Treatment for PE
Men who suffer from PE should seek medical assistance. A doctor may perform a physical examination and run some tests to make sure that the underlying cause is not an underlying health issue.
In addition to consulting their doctor, men should speak to their sexual partners. Sometimes, a partner will be able to lend some insight into the matter or can adjust technique in such a manner as to alleviate the issue.
It is Possible to Control PE
After a man visits his doctor, the doctor will be able to suggest a proper treatment regimen to remedy the situation. As with other medical treatments, the exact course of action will depend on the cause and severity of the man’s PE.
Although suffering from PE can be challenging and embarrassing, men who have this condition should remember that it is actually quite common. Since it is very treatable, most likely it is only a temporary condition and not something that a man should allow to impact his self-image and sexual confidence.
As with some other sexual dysfunctions, it is often the case with PE that focusing on it too much can actually make the problem worse. As such, men should do their best to seek treatment while, at the same time, continuing to enjoy their normal sexual activities without allowing the PE to cause undue stress or anxiety.
