Premature ejaculation occurs when a man ejaculates either before or shortly after sexual penetration, often with minimal sexual stimulation. Premature ejaculation frequently results in unsatisfactory sexual experiences for both partners in a relationship, which in turn can lead to anxiety and stress that make the problem worse. Individual instances of premature ejaculation are extremely common and affect nearly every man at one point or another without requiring any special treatment. However, recurrent issues with premature ejaculation do require treatment, and there are many options available.
Because premature ejaculation can be caused by issues ranging from psychological/emotional stressors to underlying hormonal issues or medicinal side effects, it is essential that patients seeking treatment be open and honest with their medical expert. Identifying the unique cause or causes of PE, for any individual, often requires some simple laboratory tests since hormones and reactions to certain medications often play a role in causing premature ejaculation.
Treatment options for premature ejaculation include certain supplements or medications, exercises and techniques to promote stamina and longevity, and a variety of other practices depending on the unique cause or causes affecting the individual patient. Atlantic Men's Clinic Medical Providers work alongside the patient to identify the optimal treatments for premature ejaculation that will promote longer lasting sexual pleasure for both partners.
