Overcome Premature Ejaculation Today

Ejaculation occurs when semen is released from the penis during an orgasm. Premature ejaculation (PE) is characterised by ejaculation occurring too quickly, often with minimal warning, making it challenging to delay. Individuals experiencing premature ejaculation may encounter lower sexual satisfaction for themselves and their partners, potentially leading to frustration and anxiety. Read on to learn about home remedies for early ejaculation and other treatment options.

Reasons for Early Ejaculation

The specific cause of premature ejaculation remains uncertain, with factors stemming from physical, emotional, or psychological origins. Issues such as anxiety, depression, guilt, low self-confidence, relationship challenges and a history of sexual trauma can contribute to the development of premature ejaculation. Additionally, certain medical conditions may be associated with this condition, including:

How to Overcome Premature Ejaculation?

When it comes to pre-ejaculation treatment, there are many home remedies and clinical strategies you can try. Here are the top 5 ways of overcoming premature ejaculation:


Certain mineral supplements may offer potential benefits for addressing premature ejaculation. These include:

  • Zinc supplements: Zinc, a crucial mineral for male fertility, may have a positive impact on sexual dysfunction. Zinc supplementation has been associated with improved sexual function and increased testosterone levels, potentially enhancing overall libido, and aiding in the management of premature ejaculation.
  • Magnesium supplements: Magnesium is essential for healthy sperm production and reproductive well-being. Inadequate magnesium levels may contribute to premature ejaculation by influencing specific muscle contractions associated with orgasms. Ensuring an adequate intake of magnesium through diet or supplements could potentially assist in managing premature ejaculation.
  • Other minerals: Additional minerals, such as manganese, copper, calcium, and selenium, also play vital roles in sperm function and male fertility. Incorporating these minerals into the diet or through supplementation may contribute to addressing premature ejaculation.

Topical Products

Various topical products aim to assist in reducing stimulation and extending the duration of orgasm. These include:

  • Premature ejaculation wipes: These wipes are designed to decrease sensation in the penile tip, containing benzocaine, a topical anaesthetic. Benzocaine acts by blocking sodium channels responsible for penile sensation, effectively delaying, and addressing premature ejaculation with regular use.
  • Topical creams and gels: Over the counter (OTC) topical anaesthetic creams are available, employing numbing agents to reduce sensation and postpone climax. Application of the cream to the penis approximately 10 to 15 minutes before sexual activity enhances its effectiveness.
  • Lidocaine spray: Like topical creams, lidocaine spray contributes to managing premature ejaculation by desensitising the penis and alleviating hypersensitivity. For optimal results, apply the spray about 15 minutes before engaging in sexual activity.

Pelvic floor exercises

Enhancing pelvic floor muscle strength can significantly impact the duration of climax. Pelvic floor exercises aid men experiencing lifelong premature ejaculation by managing the ejaculatory reflex, extending the time to climax. Follow these steps to perform pelvic floor exercises:

  • Identify the right muscles: Stop mid-stream while urinating or tighten the muscles that prevent passing gas to locate the pelvic floor muscles.
  • Exercise routine: While lying down, contract pelvic floor muscles for 3 seconds, followed by a 3-second relaxation. Repeat this sequence at least 10 times consecutively. Perform the exercise routine at least 3 times daily.
  • Progressive intensity: Gradually increase the duration of muscle contractions as your pelvic floor muscles strengthen. Experiment with different positions such as standing, sitting, or walking.
  • Focused breathing: Ensure proper breathing during exercises and concentrate solely on engaging the pelvic floor muscles. Avoid tightening other muscle groups, such as thighs, abs, or buttocks.

Pause-squeeze Technique

The pause-squeeze technique is a beneficial method for mitigating premature ejaculation by allowing arousal to diminish before climax. Follow these steps to practise the pause-squeeze technique:

  • Pause action: When you sense you are nearing ejaculation, cease all sexual activity.
  • Squeeze manoeuvre: Have either yourself or your partner gently squeeze the end of your penis where the head joins the shaft. Maintain the squeeze for several seconds until the urge to climax diminishes.
  • Communication is key: Ensure open communication with your partner during this process, as timing is crucial for effective application.
  • Repetition and mastery: Repeat the pause-squeeze process as needed during sexual activity. With practice, you may develop the ability to delay ejaculation without assistance.

Stop-start Technique

The stop-start technique, commonly recognised as orgasm control or ‘edging’, proves beneficial in postponing climax by extending the duration of pleasure. Here's a step-by-step guide:

  • Pause and halt: When the urge to ejaculate arises, abruptly cease all sexual activity.
  • Complete cessation: Temporarily halt any form of stimulation or sexual engagement.
  • Arousal diminishment: Allow your arousal to diminish during the break.
  • Gradual resumption: Slowly resume sexual activity once arousal levels have subsided.
  • Repeat for mastery: Practise the stop-start technique as needed during sexual encounters.

Consistent application can enhance your ability to effectively manage and delay ejaculation.

Can Premature Ejaculation be Treated Permanently?

Addressing premature ejaculation involves a multifaceted approach, considering various factors. Psychological therapy is a crucial component, helping individuals tackle negative thoughts or feelings contributing to sexual issues. Behavioural therapy, incorporating techniques like the squeeze and stop-start methods, aids in building tolerance to the pleasurable sensations leading to orgasm. Exploring topical solutions, such as over the counter or prescription creams and sprays, can temporarily numb the penis head, reducing sensitivity. In some cases, healthcare professionals may recommend antidepressant medications like fluoxetine and paroxetine, which increase serotonin levels to potentially delay orgasm. Additionally, holistic approaches, including pelvic floor exercises and lifestyle modifications, contribute to a comprehensive management strategy. Individual responses vary, underscoring the importance of consulting with a healthcare professional to determine the most suitable and personalised approach.

In a Nutshell

All in all, while premature ejaculation is a common concern, individuals can explore home remedies and techniques to better control it. Seeking advice from doctors is crucial, as they may recommend various physical, medical, or psychological treatments based on individual needs. Persistent or worsening cases should prompt a visit to a doctor for a comprehensive diagnosis, as an underlying health condition may contribute to premature ejaculation.

FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions)

  1. Is premature ejaculation permanent?

    Answer:- Premature ejaculation is typically not permanent. Changes in lifestyle, experimenting with different sexual positions, stress management or practising techniques like pelvic floor strengthening or edging may alter the time taken for ejaculation.

  2. Can premature ejaculation lead to erectile dysfunction?

    Answer:- There is no conclusive evidence suggesting a direct link between premature ejaculation (PE) and erectile dysfunction (ED). While ED is a medical condition requiring diagnosis and treatment, premature ejaculation (PE) often has psychological roots and may improve with addressing trauma, stress, or other health issues.

  3. Can premature ejaculation cause pregnancy?

    Answer:- Any unprotected sexual activity involving ejaculation into the vagina can potentially lead to pregnancy. However, not every ejaculation automatically results in pregnancy.

  4. How can I stop premature ejaculation immediately?

    Answer:- For immediate relief, individuals can explore methods like anaesthetic creams or sprays, condoms, the squeeze technique and starting and stopping. Couples can experiment to find the most effective method for them.

  5. How can I get rid of premature ejaculation naturally?

    Answer:- Natural methods to address premature ejaculation include pelvic floor exercises, starting and stopping techniques and masturbation. These approaches provide alternatives for those hesitant about using topical sprays, creams or medications.
