Dealing with premature ejaculation can be confusing, especially considering the various methods and treatment options available online. The most common measures include behavioral and lifestyle changes, anesthetics, therapy/counseling, or medications such as Super P Force.
There are multiple treatment methods to stop premature ejaculation fast, and here is a list of the ones that have been proven to be the most effective:
1. Kegel exercises
Pelvic floor exercises or Kegel exercises can be effective in delaying ejaculation during intercourse. To perform these exercises, locate your pelvic muscles and tighten them. Keep the muscles contracted for about 3 seconds, following 3 seconds of relaxation. These exercises can be performed while sitting or standing. Focus carefully on tightening the relevant muscles and not contracting other muscles nearby (such as abdominal, or thigh muscles.) Make sure that you don’t hold your breath while performing these exercises. Breathe regularly and perform these exercises at least ten times (in sets of 3).
Masturbating before sex can also help prevent premature ejaculation later during intercourse. This simple step may also be recommended to you by a therapist or a counselor. Health professionals may also recommend that you delay intercourse by focusing on foreplay or other types of sexual play. This will reduce the pressure involved in sexual encounters and make the process easier for the partner as well.
3. Pause-squeeze technique
You may also be asked to apply the pause-squeeze technique during intercourse. This is effective in delaying orgasm. The technique involves squeezing the area of your penis where the glans (head) joins the shaft, right before you are about to ejaculate. Apply pressure for several seconds, or at least until the urge to ejaculate recedes. Repeat this procedure as many times as you need to. Repetition of this process will result in better control over ejaculation during intercourse. This is because the person will get used to the feeling after practicing the pause-squeeze technique a couple of times.
4. Stop-start technique
However, if the pause squeeze technique causes unnecessary discomfort then it is better to not use this method. Rather, stop stimulation just before ejaculating. Wait for the feeling of arousal to recede before continuing with intercourse. This is called the stop-start technique and can be used as an alternative to the pause-squeeze technique.
Oral medications are also available that can help prevent premature ejaculation. These medications aren’t meant for treating premature ejaculation primarily, but end up doing so as a side effect. Antidepressants, analgesics, and PDE5 inhibitors are such medications. Delay in orgasm during intercourse is a side effect that can be caused by taking antidepressants. This is why certain SSRIs such as dapoxetine are used in medicines like Poxet 60 mg to delay orgasm in people dealing with PE.
Condoms can also help delay ejaculation. This is because condoms can effectively lower the sensitivity of the penis. Additionally, condoms are sometimes specifically made for the purpose of lowering sensitivity. These are known as ‘climax control’ condoms and can be bought easily. Condoms such as these contain special numbing agents such as benzocaine and lidocaine and are made of latex with thicker layers.
7. Natural remedies
There are also natural treatment methods that can treat premature ejaculation. These home remedies are herbal medicines that can be used for PE, such as kaunch beej, kamini vidrawan ras, and yauvanamrit vati.
8. Anesthetic creams
Anesthetic creams can be used as they can numb the area it is applied on, this reducing sensation. Topical anesthetics can be applied to the penis 10-15 minutes before intercourse to help reduce sensation. These creams are thus used as numbing agents to increase the time it takes to orgasm. If using the cream causes sensations of pain or burning then it is recommended to stop applying to the cream. It may also cause inconvenience for your partner.
9. Changes in diet
Dietary changes are a part of the lifestyle changes that can stop premature ejaculation. Zinc, for instance, can help treat premature ejaculation. Another substance that can improve sexual health is magnesium. This is why Dr. William Henderson from Hisblue recommends incorporating zinc and magnesium-rich food products into your daily diet. Chances are, this will lead to an increase in the time taken to ejaculate. Some such food products are soybeans, almonds, pumpkin seeds, spinach, kidney beans, yogurt, chickpeas, or regular peas. Beef, oysters, and lamb are also things that should be in your diet if you are not vegetarian. Dark chocolate is also recommended
These are a few options that can stop premature ejaculation. Finding the method that works best for you can be tricky, although most people have reported that a combination of lifestyle changes along with medications tends to be the most effective.
