Premature ejaculation is a common ejaculation problem. It's where the male ejaculates sooner than he or his partner wishes during sexual arousal.
There are various psychological and physical factors can cause a man to suddenly experience premature ejaculation. Common physical causes include: prostate problems, thyroid problems, using recreational drugs or excessive alcohol. Common psychological causes may include: depression, stress, relationship problems, anxiety about sexual performance (particularly at the start of a new relationship, or when a man has had previous problems with sexual performance).
It can sometimes help to masturbate an hour or 2 before having sex, use a thick condom to help decrease sensation, have sex with your partner on top (to allow them to pull away when you are close to ejaculating). Psychosexual counselling with a trained therapist can also help where encouragement is shown to you to explore any relationship issues you may have and resolve them as well as special techniques to unlearn the habit of premature ejaculation.
An SSRI (type of antidepressant) specifically designed to treat premature ejaculation, known as dapoxetine (Priligy), has been licensed in the UK which works faster than other SSRIs used for premature ejaculation. Other treatments include the use of SSRIs other than Dapoxetine, treatments used to treat erectile dysfunction and topical anaesthetics and condoms.
