Treatments to help premature ejaculation

Premature ejaculation is a defined medical condition according to International Society for Sexual Medicine (ISSM), so the best person to talk to is your doctor regarding your concerns on premature ejaculation and they will be able to discuss all premature ejaculation treatments to suit your situation.

Once your doctor has diagnosed your premature ejaculation, the next step is to look at treatment options. There are treatments available to help you improve your control of ejaculation and sexual satisfaction for both you and your partner.

Consider the risks and benefits

The choice of treatment is best guided by taking into consideration the efficacy of the therapies, potential causes that may be addressed and what you and your partner are comfortable with. You should be fully aware of the risks and benefits of each treatment option for controlling ejaculation.

Results of Treatment

Visit your doctor about your expectations when you begin treatment for premature ejaculation. The aim of treatment is to help you gain control of ejaculation, and to have a sexually satisfying relationship with your partner.

If you have a regular sexual partner, perhaps consider involving them in choosing treatments to suit both of your needs.

Some people may expect that once they have overcome the problem of premature ejaculation (PE), all other sexual and relationship difficulties will disappear. This is true when all the issues are due to premature ejaculation. However if other sexual and/or relationship difficulties exist, your doctor may suggest that you consult a sex and/or relationship therapist.
