What Causes Premature Ejaculation and What Can You Do to Treat It?

I cannot count how many times men would come to me seeking treatment and advice on how they can deal with premature ejaculation. It has become quite common that a lot of men are already seeking medical treatment and libido booster for men which is something quite astonishing given historical data that presents men’s reluctance to get help from their healthcare provider.


Anyway, according to the Mayo Clinic, it was previously thought that premature ejaculation is more of a psychological condition. But, as it turns out, it is actually more complex than you think.


What Causes It?

A lot of healthcare providers believed that premature ejaculation was more of a psychological thing and it was triggered by past experiences. For instance, you might have had sex at an early age and you want to make sure that you finish early so as to not get caught by your parents.


However, it is now known that premature ejaculation can actually be caused by a number of other factors, such as:

Relationship Endeavors- If you’ve had amazing partners before who are great in bed and you’re in a new relationship with someone who doesn’t perform as well as the ones before, then that may lead to PE.


Erectile Dysfunction- Men who have this condition would always have the impulse to finish early for fear that their partner might notice that they have this condition.


Anxiety- Thinking too much about their sexual performance and how fast they ejaculate can make a man anxious which may lead to more pervasive PE.


Biological Factors- Abnormal Hormone levels, problems with the thyroid, genetics, nerve damage, abnormal neurotransmitter levels, problems with the penis, etc.


Possible Treatments

You can try masturbating more often so that you will be familiar with the sensation of having sexual intercourse. It would help if you try to vary the conditions such as masturbating while your hands are dry and doing it while your hands are wet. You can also do this and try to control the reflexes and the urges whenever you feel that you’re about to ejaculate. Doing this 1-3 times a day would help train your mind to not get overexcited- thus helping you delay ejaculation a little bit longer.


Kegel exercises are perceived to be only for women, but it can actually do wonders for men as well. These specialized exercises aim to strengthen your pelvic floor muscles, in turn, allowing you to control the mechanisms that would lead to premature ejaculation.
