Many men that don’t last in bed as long as they’d wish to believe that they suffer from premature ejaculation (PE). This isn’t always the case. PE is a medical condition that can have a severe impact on one’s life.
When premature ejaculations occur infrequently, they aren’t considered a medical problem.
Are you suffering from PE? Take a look at the following list of symptoms. If they apply to you, it may be a good idea to have a through assessment by an experienced urologist.
Premature Ejaculation Defined
Premature ejaculation is a medical problem that affects anywhere between 15 and 30 percent of the male population. Statistics are difficult to produce because many men are embarrassed about the condition and they refrain from seeking medical assistance.
When it happens occasionally due to fatigue, stress or a long period of abstinence, premature ejaculation doesn’t qualify as a medical problem.
The issue should be treated by a medical professional if it happens every single time or most times when a man is trying to have penetrative sex with a partner.
#1 Primary Symptom: Inability To Delay Ejaculation
In the most serious cases of PE, ejaculation occurs before penetration or seconds after a man has penetrated their partner. It’s a serious condition that could have a profound impact on wellbeing, relationships and self-confidence.
PE could occur during a specific type of sexual activity or during all kinds of sexual activity. Some men could experience the problem solely during penetrative sex. Others will find themselves incapable of delaying ejaculation even during masturbation.
Some men experience PE as a lifelong problem. In others, the onset of the condition is sudden. Regardless of the onset, the inability to delay the ejaculation is the same for all men.
When a men experiences a period of having normal ejaculations followed by a period of premature ejaculations, urologists will not diagnose PE. It will have to be continuous to be classified as a health issue.
#2 Decreased Sexual Pleasure
Apart from the primary symptom, men suffering from PE could experience several other problems.
Most commonly, PE is accompanied by decreased sexual pleasure. These men can’t engage in foreplay and other activities that lead to arousal. Sex lasts a very short period of time and it’s far from satisfying for both parties involved.
#3 Psychological Symptoms
Some of the most challenging and difficult to overcome symptoms of PE are the psychological ones. Needless to say, the condition causes nervousness and anxiety. Many men start avoiding sexual activity altogether because they’re too worried about their performance.
PE can have a profound impact on a man’s self-confidence and self-perception. If left untreated, the problem will solely get worse and the negative thoughts will intensify. Many men experience relationship problems and even divorce due to a sexual problem that’s ignored.
In most serious cases, PE can contribute to clinical depression.
What Can You Do About It?
As already mentioned, PE is relatively common. There’s nothing embarrassing about the condition – it’s simply a health problem that affects the sexual organs. In some instances, PE could be caused by a medical condition.
By treating the primary problem, men will also get to overcome the sexual issue.
Some of the best remedies for PE are sexual therapy and the use of topical ointments. A sexual therapist will suggest sexual activities and positions that make it easier for men to control their arousal.
Topical creams like Enlast (full video review here) have a numbing effect. They make it more difficult for the penis to be stimulated, which contributes to prolonged intercourse and a higher level of enjoyment for both partners.
If you suffer from PE, talk to your urologist and to your partner. Being open about the problem is the first and probably the most important step towards recovery. Sooner or later, you’ll find the treatment option that will deliver the best possible results for you.
