Premature ejaculation (PE), also known as rapid ejaculation, is a very common condition in which a man ejaculates earlier than he would like to. This can be frustrating problem for both parties and can even lead to divorce. Among sexual problems, premature ejaculation is the most frequent one.
A survey showed that among several thousands of man, around 10 % experience this problem occasionally. Premature ejaculation has higher incidence rate among younger males since older men have better control.
Premature ejaculation is hard to define since intercourse can last shorter in one couple then in another. One research reported that average lasting time of men suffering from premature ejaculation was 1.8 minutes. Unaffected men lasted approximately 7.3 minutes. According to professor Waldinger, men who can’t last 90 seconds inside the vagina suffer from premature ejaculation. Also, when a man feels that the climax is happening too early, that means that he has got some degree of premature ejaculation.
Severe form of premature ejaculation is characterized by ejaculation before beginning of intercourse. Such condition can be very frustrating for men and can ruin their self-confidence. It can also be annoying for a woman especially if she plans to conceive.
Causes of Premature EjaculationThe exact cause of premature ejaculation is unknown. But the cause can have psychological nature which means that early rushed sexual experiences lead to this condition. That can be a situation where a man didn’t want to be discovered so he hurried to reach orgasm. Some consider that the tendency to reach climax quickly can be inherited rather than learnt. Anxiety can also be the cause of premature ejaculation. Men who are nervous, especially about their sexual performance, are more prone to this condition.
Surgery for Premature EjaculationTreatment options for premature ejaculation commonly include sexual therapy, psychotherapy and medications. The most radical treatment option is a surgery for premature ejaculations by which this problem is fixed forever.
It involves penis temporary denervation by intersection. The section is made around glans penis (balanus). This procedure allows prolonging sexual intercourse from 8 to 10 times. With such surgery penis is made insensitive that allows the patient to endure up to 20-30 minutes. Practically, this procedure is a temporary anesthesia that lasts for 6 months. After the surgery, a man can have long intercourse for 6 to 7 months after the penis sensitivity is completely restored.
Unpleasant result of this surgery is that balanus can remain oversensitive after the denervation but this will call for another operation. Also, sensitivity might not be regained fully.
The procedure doesn’t entail after treatment but in case of infections, which rarely occur, recovery will last longer.
