Premature Ejaculation

Premature ejaculation occurs when a partner ejaculates sooner than desired. This is usually not a concern if it happens infrequently, but if it occurs repeatedly it can strain a relationship. Premature ejaculation is a common and treatable condition and a man should not feel ashamed or embarrassed talking about it. Biological and psychological factors can play a role in treating this condition so you may want to talk with a doctor or a professional psychologist. Sexual therapy, medications, and psychotherapy are treatments that may help.

Psychological factors that commonly contribute to premature ejaculation are depression, stress over financial matters, unrealistic expectations about performance, a lack of confidence, and a history of sexual repression. Poor communication between partners, emotional or mental strain in your life, and not understanding how men and women differ in reaching orgasm can cause resentment, stress, and anxiety.

If you are not satisfied with your sexual relationship and cannot discuss this with your partner in a blameless, loving way, contact Dr. Elsa Orlandini, certified sex therapist, for a private consultation. Often couples feel more comfortable openly discussing such sensitive issues with a non biased professional. Through discussion, Dr. Orlandini will help you resolve your problems in a safe, non judgemental setting so you can establish a satisfying physical bond with your partner.
