Premature Ejaculation and Premature Ejaculation Treatment

Premature ejaculation is the most common sexual problem in men under the age of 40. Premature ejaculation seriously reduces the quality of sexual life of men and women and even leads to divorce.

Although there is no precise definition of the ejaculation time of a man, ejaculation that is less than 3 minutes and is against the wishes of the man or his partner can be defined as premature ejaculation. On the other hand, every man may ejaculate prematurely from time to time for various reasons and this period may be under 3 minutes. However, if this type of ejaculation covers more than 30% of your sexual life, it can be said that you have a premature ejaculation problem that requires treatment. In fact, a more accurate definition would be made if the problem is not called premature ejaculation but rather ejaculation control problem or uncontrolled ejaculation.

The average duration of lovemaking varies from couple to couple. For example, while some couples can reach orgasm within 5 minutes, for others this period may take up to half an hour. The important thing here is that both men and women can reach orgasm. For this reason, being able to ejaculate for longer than 3 minutes may not be enough for a quality and satisfying sexual life. Although not always, women generally ejaculate later than men. For example, a man who ejaculates on average within 5-10 minutes does not have a premature ejaculation problem. However, if this man's partner is a woman who needs 15 minutes of vaginal intercourse to ejaculate, it will be difficult for the woman to reach orgasm, which will reduce the couple's quality of sexual life. Therefore, the ideal ejaculation time for a man should be defined as the time when both partners reach saturation. And for this reason, the man's ability to delay ejaculation is as important as his ejaculation time. In sexual therapy, it is necessary to evaluate the sexual life history of the couple rather than the individuals.

a) Those who ejaculate before entering the vagina,

b) Those who ejaculate during penetration.

c) Those who ejaculate immediately after penetration
