Besides erectile dysfunction, ejaculatory problem is the other common sexual problem that men have to deal with. The availability of Viagra and other penis pills, treating premature ejaculation has become quite easy, and as such, making it less frequent. On the other hand, premature ejaculation is a common place, and unfortunately, a huge source of embarrassment for men.
Thankfully, the situation is not at all hopeless as there are a couple of ways through which you bring the problem to an end. Let us consider five important strategies to help you resolve ejaculatory problem.
The stop and start technique
This method entails stimulating a man sexually until he is about to climax. When he reaches this point, halt the stimulation, count 30 seconds, or until the arousal feeling disappears, and then start all over again. Do this several times (around five to six times) until you feel it is the right time for him to ejaculate. You may personally perform this technique, or ask your partner to assist.
The squeeze method
It is almost similar to the stop and start technique. The only difference is that, when you are about to orgasm, gently squeeze the end of your penis (where the glans and the shaft meet), or ask your partner to do so – for a couple of seconds. Stop the stimulation for half a minute or so, and then resume. Repeat this procedure a couple of times, until the man is ready to ejaculate. On the last lap, stimulation should continue until climaxing.
Seek professional help
Premature ejaculation can be caused by psychological problems such as stress, depression, problems in a relationship, as well as anxiety associated with sexual performance. Anxiety may happen when a man is engaged in a new relationship, or if he has experienced performance problems in the market. Examine yourself to determine if your case is purely psychological, and if that is the case, consider seeking professional assistance. A psychiatrist, counselor, or sex therapist is best suited to assist you. Ask your general practitioner to recommend a good therapist who has helped people with similar problems.
Use a condom
Condoms offer a good way of preventing premature ejaculation. If your case is not severe, this is a short term solution to your problem. Creating a barrier between your manhood and your partner’s sexual organ can help prolong your performance in the bedroom. Shop around for the slightly thicker condoms for more effective results. Desensitizing condoms are the best as they contain a numbing agent like benzocaine. However, if you usually experience episodes of erectile problems, or you have a highly sensitive skin, this type of condom may not be the best option for you.
Speak to your doctor
Many men will easily bypass this tip, but it is something worth considering. Your doctor will help you establish the cause of your misery, and also provide a treatment option. It could be something biological such as abnormal levels of hormones or brain chemicals (neurotransmitters). Apparently, infection and inflammation of the urethra or prostate may lead to ejaculatory problems. This explains why you need the help of a medical practitioner – at the very least, to eliminate or confirm these potential causes of premature ejaculation.
