[toc]Premature ejaculation is the most common sexual dysfunction suffered by men across the world. Though about every man experiences ejaculating earlier than what would be considered normal at least once in life, it is when a man ejaculates semen with little sexual stimulation and soon after entering the vagina repeatedly over a number of times that he may be considered to be suffering from premature ejaculation.
It is a condition that prevents the woman to obtain sexual satisfaction which in turn causes embarrassment to the man. There is no fixed time duration before orgasm that may distinguish normal from premature ejaculation, but usually doctors consider ejaculation within 2 minutes of vaginal penetration as a case of premature ejaculation. Some of the major causes of premature ejaculation are as follows:
7 Causes Of Premature Ejaculation
Impressions Of Adolescence
A lot of males in their adolescence feel the need to ejaculate quickly while masturbating, as to avoid being caught doing the act. It may be because of the upbringing and family influences or lack of personal space in shared rooms. In this way they train their sexual system to ejaculate fast which leads to premature ejaculation in adulthood.
Many men see sex as a stress relief remedy, which it is, but sex is much more than that. When relieving stress is the objective, ejaculation is the psychological goal rather than enjoying the whole process of love making.
With so many stresses accumulating in today’s modern life relating to work, family, finance etc premature ejaculation seems to be a common result of such stress, which in turn becomes another cause of stress.
Lesser Sexual Experience
Some men who have sex for the first few times feel overexcited upon feeling the sexual sensations and reach climax very fast. It might even be because they fear a performance anxiety which may manifest and cause early orgasm.
Many health complications and diseases have an effect on a man’s sexual functioning. Some health conditions which very frequently have been observed to cause premature ejaculations are hypothyroidism, diabetes, high blood pressure, multiple sclerosis, infection of the urethra or prostate, nervous damage during a surgery or trauma etc.
Excess Alcohol Consumption
While some men argue that under the effect of alcohol they feel quite relaxed and less stressed which makes them have great sex, there have been enough researches done to prove that over time alcohol does harm to the sex-life causing premature ejaculation.
Some men tend to have oversensitive penis heads which makes semen to get released earlier than desired. It is a biological condition which may be inherited.
Tensing Sexual Position
While having sex, the most common position for a man is to be on top of the woman. In this position he is often applying strain on his hands, contracting his abdominal and pelvic muscles, often to make his penis appear longer which creates physical stress. In order for this stress to get released the penis ejaculates the semen fast.
Though premature ejaculation is not a condition that should remain overlooked, but there is no need to panic as there are several ways to overcome this problem.
