The Many Facets Of Premature Ejaculation Treatment

By: lazyjack
Earlier, plenty of men would avoid talking about it for fear of social ridicule or private humiliation, but as time goes by, an increasing number of men are gradually coming forward to discuss their problem, and it has become clear that millions of men in the USA alone are suffering from this syndrome.

So what exactly is premature ejaculation and what are the treatments available for it? To answer the first part of the question, what causes premature ejaculation is still not clear, and most medical experts are of the opinion that the problem is largely psychological, though certain physiological causes like prostrate gland ailments or urinary tract infections do sometimes cause premature ejaculation.

Is there a foolproof premature ejaculation treatment? Not as yet, but the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), is currently reviewing appeals from certain pharmaceutical companies to grant approval to a group of drugs that can be used in premature ejaculation treatment. Among these is diexetine hydrochloride, being manufactured by Johnson & Johnson, which claims to reduce premature ejaculation and is in the final stage of trials.

For now, doctors often prescribe antidepressants like Prozac to treat premature ejaculation, because these drugs reduce PE as a side effect. Scott Cameron, a 32-year-old banker, says he has achieved 'wonderful results' after using Prozac for his premature ejaculation problem. 'But I know I can't keep using antidepressants all my life, and I would like to see premature ejaculation being given due recognition as a medical problem and treated as such,' he says.

How does premature ejaculation treatment work? To answer that question, we must realize that ejaculation means much more than merely 'shooting your load'. It is the result of a complicated process that involves the simultaneous release of semen from the prostate gland, propelling the semen out of the prostate and into the penis, and stopping the semen going backwards into the bladder.

Aiding all this activity is a group of striated muscles at the base of the penis called the bulbospongiosus muscles. Once the semen arrives at the bulbous urethra, the bulbocavernosus muscle contraction (BCM) compresses the urethra and expels its contents. It is delicately balanced operation, and even a slight hitch anywhere can lead to premature ejaculation.

However, there are certain methods to treat premature ejaculation naturally, such as the Squeeze Technique, that can help you control the bulbocavernosus muscle and stop it from contracting involuntarily, which is certain to cause premature ejaculation.

This technique is also known as the Masters and Johnson method and works best if a man also involves his partner in the process, because once he is ready to ejaculate, his partner will have to squeeze his penis at the base to stop him from climaxing.

Once the ejaculatory sensation subsides, his partner once again arouses him and then stops him fro ejaculating. Eventually, the man can learn to control his ejaculation by himself.

The stop and start method can also be used in premature ejaculation treatment. This process requires a man to be aroused to the point of ejaculation, and the removal of the sexual stimulation for a brief period. It is then resumed, by which time the ejaculatory sensation will have passed. This method thus allows a man to maintain his erection for a longer time, and gradually allows him to control premature ejaculation.
