Treating a Premature Ejaculation
Premature ejaculation is known to get resolved on its own after a specific period of time in some cases. Relaxation techniques or distraction methods can help in delaying ejaculation. In some men, giving up the habit of drinking, smoking and taking illegal drugs can improve the ability of controlling ejaculation.
The doctor can recommend specific techniques for both you and your partner so as to delay ejaculation. These techniques involve identifying and regulating sensations leading to ejaculation. Other options call for a condom use in order to reduce penis sensation or trying different positions while having sex. Antidepressant medicines like clomipramine (Anafranil) and dapoxetine (Priligy) can also treat this condition. There are creams, gels, etc. that help in treating premature ejaculation by cutting down the sensation.
You can get relief from premature ejaculation only if you take the necessary steps at the right time and speak to a medical aid.
