Premature ejaculation is the most common sexual problem to affect men, and it happens at all ages. It refers to any situation where a man finishes sooner than he or his partner would like during sex. If you're experiencing PE, a doctor from Rosemary can help by prescribing a clinically proven treatment plan.
Premature ejaculation is a type of sexual dysfunction defined by an inability to delay or control ejaculation. In patients, ejaculation typically occurs within one minute of penetrative sex, which can be embarrassing or distressing. There are proven treatments that can help prevent premature ejaculation in men of all ages.
Erectile dysfunction refers to a condition where a man is unable to obtain or maintain an erection in order to engage in penetrative sexual activity.
What causes this condition depends on the type of premature ejaculation that you have.
Lifelong premature ejaculation can be caused by the chemical imbalance in the part of the brain that controls ejaculation.
Acquired premature ejaculation is often caused by anxiety, depression, stress, erectile dysfunction or certain medications. It can also be caused by hormonal imbalances such as thyroid disease or hypertension, lifestyle choices such as drug and alcohol use or urological conditions such as prostate disease.
Yes, but no single treatment will work for everyone. Many men are successfully treated through over-the-counter topicals, prescription medication, behaviour modification or a combination of these treatments. Keep in mind that it may take some time to find the right treatment or combination of treatments that work for you.
There are a number of treatments for premature ejaculation, including both oral and topical medications. If there are any underlying causes, such as psychological disturbance or other health problems, it’s important that they are addressed. Lifestyle modifications can also help, which includes reducing and avoiding alcohol and drug intake. A Rosemary doctor can help identify an appropriate treatment plan for you.
Depending on what medication you are prescribed, some of the most common side-effects of premature ejaculation treatment include the following:
Prescription medications can cause nausea, diarrhoea, headache, somnolence, dizziness, anxiety, loss of libido, erectile dysfunction, anhidrosis, blurred vision, insomnia, flushing, tinnitus, sinus congestion, rash, hives, fatigue, palpitations, seizures.
Over-the-counter creams can cause skin irritation, itching, rash, swelling, allergic reaction, skin colour changes.
Speak with your doctor about any side effects you're experiencing from your PE treatment.
Common non-prescription treatments for premature ejaculation include behavioural techniques, such as pelvic floor exercises, the “pause-squeeze” technique and counselling.
Further investigation is needed if there are concerns that there may be an undiagnosed medical condition causing premature ejaculation, or if there has been inadequate or no response to treatment.
