Premature ejaculation

Premature ejaculation refers to the event where a man ejaculated before he thinks he’s ready to ejaculate. It’s a condition that’s far more prevalent than we think and is one of the most commonly reported sexual problem among men. 

The timing of ejaculation is generally used as an objective measure of ejaculatory control. So, there is no fixed time for defining ‘too soon’ and it varies among the individuals or couples. Say for an example, if a man/couple wants to ejaculate after 40 minutes of sexual intercourse and if he ejaculates at 25 minutes that is still premature ejaculation for him /couple. On the other hand, if the man/couple wants to ejaculate in 3 minutes but actually ejaculated in 1 min, that is still premature ejaculation for him/them. For a heterosexual man, a commonly used definition of premature ejaculation is ejaculating between 1-2 minutes of his penis entering the woman’s vagina. Studies have shown that most men ejaculate within 3 to 5 minutes after penetration.

Premature ejaculation can have several causes like  anxiety, unfavourable sexual partner and even chemical imbalance in the brain. There are a few methods by which you can treat it and some of them are the stop-start technique, squeeze technique and masturbation.
