Description of premature ejaculation

A man who suffers from premature ejaculation cannot control his ejaculation long enough to satisfy his partner. This results in ejaculating too quickly with little or no control at all. It is an involuntary reflex that the man has not been able to understand, control and adapt to learning.

Men are afraid of admitting their problem. The highest numbers of premature ejaculation complaints are among young adults and late teenagers. The problem, if untreated, will follow these males for the rest of their lives. You might be one of these males that still have problems. Only a few percent will be grow out of premature ejaculation. Older men with premature ejaculation problems are typically inexperienced when it comes to sex as well as they lack sexual knowledge and confidence. This lack of knowledge and confidence results in a mental block and affects people in different ways. There are ways to treat premature ejaculation.

Symptoms and causes of premature ejaculation

There are many theories why some men suffer from premature ejaculation while some men never do. Men who suffer from premature ejaculation typically have problems with the nervous system, an innate reflex that is sensitive, or a psychological tendency and/or perception of what sex is like and what sex is supposed to be like. Drugs can also be a factor, especially certain cold medicines. Test groups have shown that stress at work, home and other personal life issues play an important role in understanding premature ejaculation. Some men have a natural fear and guilt of sex while others have unconscious thoughts that sex is sinful or wrong so they want to “get it over with” as fast as possible.

Normally, if a man can’t last longer than 1 minute or about 15 thrusts during intercourse it is considered that he suffers from premature ejaculation.

Diagnosis of premature ejaculation

How do you know if you suffer from premature ejaculation? There are no tests in ANY WAY that will prove you suffer from premature ejaculation. The person himself diagnoses if he has it or not. If he thinks that 5 minutes of sex is not long enough and he loses control after 5 minutes, one could argue that he suffers from premature ejaculation. It is determined on a case-by-case basis. As a general guideline if you can’t last longer than 15 thrusts or 1 minute of sexual intercourse, you suffer from premature ejaculation and you need help immediately.
