Premature ejaculation is the most common male sexual health complaint. It affects millions of men, and almost every man can relate to the desire to last longer, even if they do not suffer from PE.

According to the Diagnostic Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM IV), premature ejaculation is defined as "a persistent or recurrent ejaculation with minimal sexual stimulation before, on or shortly after penetration and before a person wishes." In other words, premature ejaculation isn't a one-time occurrence. It is a condition that routinely detracts from your sexual pleasure and your enjoyment in the bedroom.

Sadly, many men are embarrassed to suffer from premature ejaculation, which ironically only makes the condition worse. Because men feel so stressed and anxious about pleasing their partner and lasting long enough, they actually lose even more control over their sexual response and end up reaching orgasm too quickly. It's a self-fulfilling prophecy that can be difficult to erase from one's mental script.

The good news is that premature ejaculation is not an uncommon issue, nor is it anything to be embarrassed about. Best of all, there are medications available, which can help you, prevent premature ejaculation and improve your sexual pleasure, not to mention, your partner's sexual pleasure.

In order to access this treatment and have the sex life they desire, men have to take this issue out from under the rug and be willing to address it. You have to be your own health advocate, even when it comes to your sexual health. Talk about the matter with your doctor or therapist. We recommend starting with a urologist because there are some biological causes of PE (e.g. hyperthyroidism) that should be ruled out.

You can also talk to your partner to help find ways to troubleshoot the issue and ensure that you both achieve the pleasure you desire and deserve. Remember, you don't have to suffer from premature ejaculation in silence. There are treatments available and you can reclaim your sexual pleasure.
