Uncontrollable orgasm that occurs either before or after sex is known as premature ejaculation. It usually happens due to insignificant sexual stimulation and also before the person desires. The ejaculation of semen occurs just after penetration, within a very short period of time, or even before the penetration happens during a sexual intercourse. Due to this reason, both people might feel that they have had unsatisfactory sex. Nervousness might also add to this problem. It is one of the most common forms of sexual dysfunction in males. It is the most common sexual problem encountered by men and can be very distressing and frustrating for the individual as it can hamper his sex life drastically.
The cause of premature ejaculation cannot be determined easily in most cases. Common causes include anxiety, stress, depression, unhealthy lifestyle, guilt, etc. It is also possible that premature ejaculation occurs if the partner is new. It can also be associated with medical issues such as injury, hormonal problems or side effects of medicines.
Problems with premature ejaculation usually heal with time and most of the times, treatment may not be needed. Methods of distraction or relaxation techniques aid in delaying ejaculation. Premature ejaculation is not necessarily a cause of concern and immediate medical attention isn’t required. Premature ejaculation usually stops with age and experience. Although, if it prevails for long, a visit to specialist Ayurveda is recommended. If it lasts longer than usual, the sex life of the individual can be negatively affected, leading to psychological issues. Usually, sexual counseling is recommended for certain people with a rather extreme case.
There are also creams, gels, and a spray that may be used to treat premature ejaculation by reducing sensation. These medicines are applied to the penis before sex. Some medicines can also affect a man’s sex partner by reducing sensation for the partner. However, it is not advised to use these gels for long-term as without sensitivity one will not enjoy and sometimes it reacts with partner vagina. Ayurvedic medicines are best for long term and side effect free solution.
Note: Before taking any medicines it is very important to consult an expert to find out root cause for long-term results.
