Topical Anesthetics for PE

Topical Creams and Sprays For Premature Ejaculation

Although SSRIs can be very effective for men with low serotonin levels, there is solid evidence that topical anesthetics in the form of lidocaine creams and sprays are the best overall solution for premature ejaculation or PE. They are effective, easy-to-use and have minimal side effects.

We have studied much of the medical literature for PE and there are many very good articles. These two, in particular, have good overview information about topical anesthetics for PE.

1. Topical anesthetic use for treating premature ejaculation: a double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled study

W. Busato, C.C. Galindo Article first published online: 5 MAY 2004

To read the complete article, go to the US National Library of Medicine website.

Busato and Galindo performed of 42 men who applied EMLA topical anesthetic cream or a placebo prior to sex. Here is the main conclusion, taken directly from the article:

In conclusion, despite the few patients completing the present study, the results suggest that using lidocaine-prilocaine anesthetic cream might be an effective treatment for PE, possibly by decreasing penile hypersensitivity, a suggested cause of PE. These promising results should motivate the development of a double-blind placebo-controlled trial including more patients and a long-term study, to confirm our findings and determine the acceptability of this method over a longer follow-up.

It is important to note that medical researchers are famously conservative with their findings. For a study of premature ejaculation with such a small number of patients, to say it "might be effective" is actually a fairly strong statement.

2. Recent advances in the treatment of premature ejaculation

To read the complete article, go to the US National Library of Medicine website.

Linton and Wylie discuss all popular premature ejaculation treatments as of early 2010. A significant portion of the discussion is devoted to anesthetic sprays, creams, and gels, primarily because of the promise shown by such treatments.  Below is the summary of the section which discusses topical treatments for premature ejaculation:

The theory that men with PE may have penile hypersensitivity provides a rationale for using topical agents, for example, topical desensitizing agents. The use of local anesthetic treatment to delay ejaculation was first described by Schapiro in 1943. Topical agents are very attractive as they can be used on an as needed basis and systemic side effects are likely to be minimal. They are reported to be very efficacious.

Topical Anesthetics as First-Line Therapy for Premature Ejaculation

Given the fact that topical anesthetics can be used on demand with virtually no risk of significant side effects, it is not surprising that increasing numbers of experts in sexual medicine recommend topical anesthetics as first-line therapy in the treatment of their patients with PE.
