Surprise! Premature Ejaculation, or Rapid Ejaculation as it is often referred to now, is actually the number one male sexual concern. It trumps Erectile Dysfunction (ED) for the number one spot, with an estimated 30% of men complaining of significant Premature Ejaculation (Rapid Ejaculation), and many more experiencing the problem from time to time. Often though, Erectile Dysfunction and Premature Ejaculation occur together.
Definition of Premature Ejaculation
Premature Ejaculation or Rapid Ejaculation can be partially defined as ejaculation which is uncontrolled, and occurs with minimal stimulation. In heterosexual couples this is ejaculation occurring either before, during, or shortly after penetration. The other part of the definition of Premature Ejaculation is that the ejaculation occurs before the man wishes, and that this creates emotional distress.
How fast is too fast? There is no appropriate answer based on watching the clock. If you feel stressed about Premature Ejaculation before sex, and feel ashamed or depressed immediately after, then it is likely that you and your partner are suffering from this condition. If you sense that your partner feels let down, then this will worsen your situation.
Premature Ejaculation Treatment (or Rapid Ejaculation Treatment) is a complex process. At Ontario Men’s Health clinic, we believe that the approach needs to include changing behaviours as well as expectations. We prescribe behavioral exercises for couples to do during sex, and exercises men can do on their own. We often supplement these Premature Ejaculation Exercises with medications when needed. Some medicines actually delay orgasm and can help to improve things quickly while the couple goes through the process of the Premature Ejaculation Exercises to improve the situation long term.
Facilitating a better quality and longer lasting erection often helps make Premature Ejaculation Treatment more effective.
The physicians and support counselors at Ontario Men’s Health understand well the impact this problem has on men and couples, and will work with you diligently to improve your situation by providing expert Premature Ejaculation Treatment at the Toronto clinic
