How Do I Know If I Have Premature Ejaculation?
The Mayo Clinic defines premature ejaculation as â€śwhen a man ejaculates sooner during sexual intercourse than they or their partner would likeâ€ť.Â The Mayo Clinic goes on to indicate that possibly 1 in 3 men may suffer from premature ejaculation. Along side erectile dysfunction, premature ejaculation is considered a sexual dysfunction. Unlike E.D. however, premature ejaculation isnâ€™t often treated, nor can it be, with the male enhancement drugs that treat erectile dysfunction.
While there will certainly be some embarrassment associated with premature ejaculation, with 1 in 3 who experience it regularly, it is clearly quite normal and very much treatable. Like erectile dysfunction, premature ejaculation was previously thought of as a purely psychological issue, it is now however understood to have physiological underpinnings as well.
Itâ€™s difficult to identify the exact reasons someone may be experiencing premature ejaculation. One reason may be rooted in ones past sexual experiences in which it may have been required for climax to be reached quickly in order to avoid being â€ścaughtâ€ť. Another reason may be feelings of insecurity with regard to being able to maintain an erection or the size of oneâ€™s penis and as such leading to rushing sex.
Those who may feel insecure about penis size may have looked into penis enlargement remedies and treatments. It is important to realize however that the average penis measures somewhere between 5-7 inches when erect, and sometimes slightly less. Before rushing into taking penis enlargement pills or beginning a male enhancement regiment, one should first consider all possible risks. Penis enlargement pills will not likely produce any permanent results but may only cause a slight increase in size during intercourse simply due to extra blood being directed toward the penis.
Additionally, such male enhancement products may cause side effects such as high blood pressure, headaches as well as many others. Similarly penis enlargement â€śexercisesâ€ť may possibly cause long-term damage to tendons and ligaments associated with the penis and may even lead to erectile dysfunction. Of course there are those who will also swear to the efficacy of penis enlargement pills and exercises so doing thorough research and exercising sound judgment is recommended.
For a safe exercise to help those who suffer from premature ejaculation, kegels can be performed any time and anywhere. Kegels simply require a person to contract and release the PC muscle otherwise known as the pelvic floor. Doing kegels can not only help one to gain more control over ejaculation but also improve erections and those suffering from erectile dysfunction. To perform a kegel properly one should work with the breath, contracting on an inhalation and releasing on a controlled exhalation.
A kegel done properly should be slow and controlled at all times and contracting and releasing quickly is discouraged if one is attempting to gain more control over climaxing. Finally, when performing kegels a person should attempt to keep other parts of the body free from stress. Making sure other areas do not become stressed, for example, the face, abdominals, hands and shoulders should be completely relaxed during the entire process.
