A lot of men sometimes ejaculate sooner during sexual intercourse than they or their partner would like. As long as it happens not often, it's probably not cause for worries. Anyway, if you regularly ejaculate after few minutes such as before intercourse begins or shortly afterward — you may have a condition known as premature ejaculation.
Premature ejaculation is a common sexual disorder. Estimates vary, but some experts think it affects as many as one out of three men. Even though it's a common problem that can be treated, many men feel embarrassed to talk to their doctors about it or seek treatment.
Psychological factors also usually contribute to premature ejaculation. While men sometimes underestimate the relationship between sexual performance and emotional well-being, premature ejaculation can be caused by temporary depression, stress over financial matters, unrealistic expectations about performance, a history of sexual repression, or an overall lack of confidence. Interpersonal dynamics strongly contribute to sexual function, and premature ejaculation can be caused by a lack of communication between partners, hurt feelings, or unresolved conflicts that interfere with the ability to achieve emotional intimacy. Neurological premature ejaculation can also lead to other forms of sexual disfunction, or intensify the existing problem, by creating performance anxiety. In a less pathological context, premature ejaculation could also be simply caused by extreme arousal.
In other cases, premature ejaculation is caused by a physical problem that affects the nervous system. Certain treatments, such as cold medications containing pseudoephedrine, also cause premature ejaculation. Sexual dysfunction is a common symptom of psychiatric afflictions ranging from bipolar disorder to post-traumatic stress disorder. In these instances, it is best to talk the issues openly with a physician.
You don't have to live with premature ejaculation — treatments including medications, natural cures such as Climinax, psychological counseling and learning sexual techniques to delay ejaculation can improve sex for you and your partner. For many men, a combination of treatments works best.
