Sexual Problems And Homoeopathy
What Is Premature Ejaculation?

There is no set time when a man should ejaculate during sex. But itís probably too soon if you have an orgasm before intercourse or less than a minute after you start. Itís a problem because when you ejaculate you lose your erection and canít continue having sex. You and your partner may feel thereís not enough time to enjoy it.

Itís a common issue for men. Between 30%-40% have it at some time in their life. So, keep in mind -- itís not something to worry about if it happens only occasionally.

What Causes It?

Itís not really known. But your brain chemistry could be at least partly to blame. Men who have low levels of the chemical serotonin in their brains tend to take a shorter time to ejaculate.

Emotional factors can play a role:

Stress
Depression
Performance anxiety
Guilt
Relationship problems
Sometimes PE can be a problem for men with erectile dysfunction (ED). Thatís when the penis does not remain firm enough for sex. Men who are worried they could lose their erection may develop a pattern of rushing to ejaculate. It can be a hard habit to break.

When Should I See the Doctor?

Make an appointment if PE is bothering you or your partner. The doctor probably will ask if youíve always had the problem or if itís a new thing. He may ask about your sex life or your relationships. Youíll probably get a physical exam, too.

How Is It Treated?

Ninety-five percent of men are helped by behavioral techniques that help control ejaculation.

Stop and start: You or your partner stimulate your penis until your feel like youíre going to have an orgasm. Stop the arousal for about 30 seconds or until the feeling passes. Start the stimulation again and repeat three or four more times before you actually ejaculate.

The Squeeze: It works the same way as the start and stop method. But, when you feel like youíre reaching orgasm, you or your partner squeezes the head of your penis until you lose the erection. Repeat this a few times before ejaculating.

Some men find that if they think of something else during sex they can last longer.

What Medications Can Treat PE?
