Premature ejaculation is a sexual disorder that affects a high percentage of men causing embarrassment, discomfort and frustration. There could be various reasons for this dysfunction, and in cases where it’s frequent, doctors typically recommend pharmacological treatment, however, there are other options to try. In many cases, in addition to pharmacological treatment it is possible to combine a series of exercises to improve an early ejaculatory reflex.

Other Methods That Help

When it comes to premature ejaculation San Diego CA doctors agree that there are some non-pharmacological methods one can try at home, like the Squeeze technique. The objective of this technique is not immediately obtaining pleasure, but with the aim for you to retrain your ejaculatory reflex.

First, a man should be calm and relaxed and then he must masturbate until full erection. Every few minutes, he will squeeze the back of the penis with pressure for three to four seconds to prevent ejaculation. When the erection decreases, rest, and after a short period of time – thirty to sixty seconds – start masturbating again. Repeat the process 3 to 4 times, and this exercise should be practiced constantly until you perceive more control over the ejaculatory response.

By practicing this technique, you learn to allow for a longer lasting arousal response.

Using Kegel Exercises

There are also Kegel exercises that can develop a greater control of the pubococcygeus muscle. This exercise is generally used to help with urinary incontinence, but it can also help strengthen the pelvic and pubococcygeus muscle. You simply squeeze the pelvic muscles for three to five seconds and then release. Relax for another five seconds and start again. Kegel exercises can be performed several times a day. The aim of the exercises are to teach the penis to manage the intensity and duration of the pubococcygeus muscle contractions, in order to improve the sexual life.

Reducing Sensitivity

To prolong pleasure, many men use a cream that decreases genital sensitivity. These creames contain prilocaine or lidocaine, which is a local anesthetic that numbs the penis. It is used frequently in dermatology. It does not produce side effects to any of the partners, and the cream or gel is fully absorbed before penetration.

There are also specially formulated condoms and sprays that contain lidocaine to reduce sensitivity. For better protection, it’s suggested that a condom is worn when using any desensitizing products. This helps from transferring any of the product into the vagina.

What Causes Premature Ejaculation?

Home remedies are not a quick solution. It takes some time and repetitive training to become effective, but to resolve this problem, you should first see an expert to rule out any medical issues.
