Q: Good evening ma’am, I must commend. You’re really doing a good job by enlightening people. I pray God will richly bless ma’am. But please ma’am, I want to ask, what can I do to get rid of premature ejaculation? I’ve been battling with it now for like 4-5 years without taking any medication for it. I thought it is just temporal, but now seeing that the symptom still persists, I don’t know what to do. Please advice.
A: Premature ejaculation is the most common type of sexual dysfunction in men younger than 40years. Premature ejaculation is uncontrolled ejaculation either before or shortly after sexual penetration, with minimal sexual stimulation and before the person wishes. In most cases the cause may not be identified.
It may be due to anxiety, guilt, depression, or if it has been a long time since last ejaculation. It may occur with a new partner, or only in certain sexual situations. In these instances, the problem is the pressure to perform. So, first option is to abstain from sexual intercourse for a while to take off this pressure.
Then, when you do resume, if you feel you’re about to ejaculate, get your partner to apply pressure between the glans (tip) and shaft (body) of his manhood. This should stop the urge. Sexual activity can be resumed after a few minutes.
Counseling or behavioral therapy may help also reduce anxiety related to premature ejaculation
In some cases, medical conditions, hormonal problems, injury or certain medications can cause it.
In most cases, it resolves on its own over time without medical treatment. Cutting down on alcohol, tobacco and illegal drugs may improve this.
Antidepressant drugs have also been found to delay ejaculation. Another option is the use of local anaesthetic creams, which reduce the sensations felt, thus reducing the probability of a premature ejaculation. There are creams, gels and sprays, which can be applied before intercourse.
Talk over this with your doctor who will provide the best advice based on your history. He/she will evaluate you and give you further advice.
I hope this helps.
Have a good night, y’all 😀
