Early Ejaculation

What Is Early Ejaculation?

Early, or premature ejaculation in men, is a pathological condition of male sexual sphere which is characterized by too early onset of ejaculation as a result of minimal sexual stimulation – after several frictions, immediately after the introduction of the penis into the vagina or even during penetration. In this case, the onset of ejaculation may not be accompanied by voluptuous sensations (orgasm) and is not controlled by the strong-willed effort of a man. This is a very common form of sexual dysfunction, causing much anxiety to both men who can’t enjoy a full sexual intercourse and their partners. It would not be an exaggeration to say that even the most full of love marriage, especially if the spouses are young, is unlikely to last long if the man regularly shows himself as a “quick-fire”.

It is necessary to distinguish premature ejaculation from overexcitation, which is often found in young men who are just beginning to have sex. Any man can be overexcited and experience ejaculation even before the sexual intercourse, but if he does not suffer from premature ejaculation, then the next sexual act will be of a normal duration. It is also worth noting that premature ejaculation often occurs not only during sexual intercourse, but also during masturbation. In addition, one should not go to extremes: sex lasting half an hour or an hour is not always achievable even to a perfectly healthy man. Here everything depends on the temperament, the sexual constitution, the relationship with the partner and many other important factors.
Quick ejaculation problem is very common: every third man collides with it during his life.

Causes of Early Ejaculation

The main causes that lead to this sexual disorder can be divided into two groups: psychological and physiological.

Among psychological reasons, the following can be considered:

  • A man’s complexes about his body and appearance, especially fueled by the imposition of mass media ideals;
  • Depression and other clinical disorders of the psyche;
  • An obsession with anxiety that you may experience premature ejaculation (according to psychologists, this is the most common problem);
  • Disharmony, tension in intimate relationships with a partner;
  • A man’s sense of shame for manifestations of his sexuality, which especially often develops in adolescence, at the beginning of puberty, in conditions of lack of information about the development of male body and understanding conversations with adults;
  • too early onset of sexual activity, unsuccessful first sexual experience.

As for physiological reasons, there can be named:

  • Erectile dysfunction;
  • Irregular sexual contacts;
  • Prostatitis;
  • Hyperthyroidism (increased function of the thyroid gland);
  • Deficiency of testosterone;
  • Increased excitability of the nervous system;
  • Short frenulum of the penis;
  • Increased sensitivity of the head of penis;
  • Spinal cord injuries;
  • Inflammation of seed tubercle;
  • Inherited traits;
  • Drug and alcohol abuse.

People who are interested what can cause a man to ejaculate early often ask: can drugs cause premature ejaculation? Yes, but the average man rarely takes such medications. Some antidepressants and other psychotropic drugs that belong to neurotransmitters negatively affect the male sexual sphere, causing early ejaculation, too long sexual act without an orgasm or in general erectile dysfunction. The risk of such effect on the male body should be indicated in the instructions for the specific drug in the side effects section.

By the way, all kinds of drugs are very harmful for potency precisely because they have a direct resemblance to strong neurotropic drugs, which are taken solely by the prescription of a qualified doctor. Any narcotic substance, from allegedly harmless marijuana to heroin, causes male intimate health harm of unpredictable severity.
