5 Causes Of Premature Ejaculation

Jul 12, 2017 Premature Ejaculation

Premature ejaculation is a disheartening condition that occurs mainly in younger men but can affect men of all ages.   It occurs when a man orgasms within two minutes of penetration and before intercourse can be truly enjoyed. There isn’t a definitive reason as to why it happens but there are a number of circumstances that can cause it to happen. You will be physically examined by your doctor and any psychological issues will be discussed. Once a possible cause is identified the condition can be treated.  Premature ejaculation is one of the most common forms of sexual dysfunction.  It is encountered by most men at some point in their life.  Here are five possible causes.

Lack Of Experience

Often young men suffer premature ejaculation because they have not learnt how to delay their orgasm.  This can be caused by over excitement, nerves and having to come quickly during masturbation (because they fear being caught). Premature ejaculation can be controlled through stimulation and stopping just before orgasm, resting then being able to recognise what it feels like just before you climax.

A New Partner

If you have been celibate for a long time,  the sheer excitement of being in a new relationship can provoke premature ejaculation.  This may only happen the first time but it can affect your confidence in the future.  

Anxiety, Guilt Or Depression

The way you feel inside has a huge impact on your sexual performance, if you are confident and sure of yourself you are not likely to encounter any problems in the bedroom.  Niggling negative emotions can possess your mind causing you suffer premature ejaculation.  

Medical Conditions

Neurological conditions where the nervous system is affected may cause you to suffer from premature ejaculation.  Messages from your brain may be sent the wrong information. Diabetes, high blood pressure, thyroid problems, prostate disease and binge drinking can also affect your ability to control your orgasm.

Relationships and Premature Ejaculation

If you are encountering relationship issues problems can occur in the bedroom.  You both may have different expectations as to how long intercourse should last.  You may not be communicating how you would like your relationship to be.  Your partner may be extremely demanding and you may not be able to perform on demand.  


If premature ejaculation persists then you may need to consider medication that will prevent it from happening.  Treatment involves the form of an antidepressant that can fix the problem, it is not really known how it works but studies have shown that there is a high success rate.
