Most men dream about slaying it in the bedroom and leaving their lover begging for more, or bragging to all her friends about it the next day. For those who finish by mere petting, before even penetrating her, the episode quickly ends in disaster and hurt feelings. Though a man may live with such a situation all his life, he should know that he doesn’t have to. There are plenty of treatment options available. The first step is to remain calm and gain some insight. Premature ejaculation (PE) is exceedingly common. One-third of men experience it regularly, according to some studies. It’s not only common among young men just starting their sexual career, but among the middle-aged as well. Certain age-related changes may bring it on in some cases. Although there can be a physical cause, it may also be emotional, or a side effect of a certain medication. Sometimes ones psychology can worsen the situation, say if he has performance anxiety.
Fortunately, there are many options to help one overcome PE. But treatment must fit the cause. Generally speaking, there are two kinds of PE one may have. One is due to a problem you are having at this point in time, situational PE. The other is lifelong. If you’ve had normal sex in the past and this is something new, it’s probably the former. Depending upon which you experience may lend insight into the right treatment option. There are certain exercises a man can perform, numbing condoms or topical ointments, psychological techniques, medications, and more. Dapoxetine is one such drug. This is an antidepressant which may help delay orgasm. Sometimes, some men have another problem such as ED which causes PE. What works for one patient won’t necessarily work for another, since PE is varying in its causes. That’s why it’s important to have a physician help you hunt down the cause, and determine the proper treatment. If you’re struggling, seek out a doctor or urologist for help.
