Per definition, premature ejaculation is when a man ejaculates before or shortly after penetration or ejaculates sooner during intercourse than he or his partner would wish. While erectile dysfunction is widely talked about and many companies are producing effective drugs for its treatment, premature ejaculation treatment seems to be neglected and little is known about and remedies might not be immediately available or even effective.
While there are several standardized tests and questionnaires which measure the “latency time to ejaculation” and other factors, the personal experience is the most important factor when diagnosing premature ejaculation and for premature ejaculation treatment. When speaking to your doctor, he will make a diagnosis based on your personal history and personal and partner sexual satisfaction.
One of the most frequently used and effective ways for premature ejaculation treatment is cognitive behavioral therapy which may include talking to a counselor and relaxation techniques. Stress relief and an understanding relationship environment may be able to loosen the tension.
The so called “distraction” technique is also frequently used by men: thinking about non sex related topics during intercourse may help to shift focus and delay ejaculation and could be a choice for premature ejaculation treatment.
Some techniques like masturbating an hour before intercourse, or withdrawal for a certain amount of time and concentrating on other sexual aspects such as foreplay might be very helpful too, you can be creative with your choice of premature ejaculation treatment.
Some other physical techniques for premature ejaculation treatment include the “stop and start” method, which involves sexually stimulating the man until he feels like he is about to reach orgasm, stopping the stimulation for about 30 seconds and then starting it again, and the “squeeze” method, which involves sexually stimulating the man to a point right before ejaculation, gently squeezing the end of the penis (where the glans meets the shaft) for several seconds, stopping sexual stimulation for about 30 seconds, and then start it again.
