Living with premature ejaculation is frustrating and can eat away at your self-confidence and self-esteem. There was a time that there were a couple of options, but today the options for treatment have expanded. Treatment options may need to be explored depending on the cause, and it may take more than one option to get the right treatment for your unique case. Don’t give up, just try another option until you connect with the treatment that works for you.
Poor health can cause premature ejaculation, and sometimes it’s best to focus on your overall health instead of directly on the penis. New studies have shown that proper nutrition can affect men and women’s sexual performance alike due to not fueling their body adequately. A reduction of meat and dairy, while increasing vegetables, fruit, and whole grains can change the way you feel and function.
For some, having more sex helps. Having more sex for some couples may mean including sex therapy and couple’s therapy to address issues that have built-up over the years. These problems often affect how you think, and then can lead to performance issues. The therapist may also encourage pelvic floor muscle exercises.
Today, there are no medications in the U.S. that specifically address premature ejaculation. An antidepressant may work to help elevate a depressed mood, decrease anxiety, and can help delay orgasm. This treatment is not direct to the issue but may help some. Some numbing creams help minimize feeling, or the use of a condom may reduce sensitivity and prolong orgasm.
