What is uncontrolled ejaculation?
Premature ejaculation is a condition in which a man ejaculates with minimal sexual stimulation. Men experiencing this condition ejaculate before or shortly after penetration.
Premature ejaculation is common. 1 in 3 men say they have experienced premature ejaculation at some point in their lives. However, to be medically diagnosed as premature, ejaculation must:
- Always or almost always occur within 1 minute of sexual penetration
- Feel impossible to delay (uncontrolled ejaculation)
- Regularly be a cause of stress, frustration, and avoidance of sexual activity
If ejaculation is becoming a source of concern, talk to our doctors.
Men tend to feel embarrassed about discussing sexual health concerns. Our doctors are aware that talking about sex and intimacy can be difficult. We are dedicated to help our clients feel comfortable and cared for.
The Causes of Premature Ejaculation
It is not yet clear what exactly causes premature ejaculation. However, experts agree that healthy sexual function takes a combination of physical, emotional, and psychological factors working together in synchronized harmony. If any of these factors are “off”, premature ejaculation can occur.
Physical factors can include:
- Illness (prostrate or urethra inflammation / infection)
- Other sexual dysfunctions (erectile dysfunction)
- Hormonal problems (low testosterone)
- Alcohol abuse
Emotional / Relationship factors can include:
- Poor communication
- Relationship conflicts, resentment toward partner
- Lack of connection with partner
Psychological factors can include:
- Worry about sexual performance / guilt
- Past sexual, physical, emotional abuse
- Negative self-image, embarrassment
- Cultural/ religious beliefs related to sexuality
- Mental health conditions (such as depression and anxiety)
If you are experiencing symptoms of premature ejaculation talk to our doctors.
Treatment Options and Other Services
There are number of ways to respond to the symptoms of premature ejaculation, such as counselling.
We highly encourage you to discuss your options with your doctor.
Mental and emotional health can be key factors in sexual wellness. Stress, anxiety or depression can impact libido, and a man or woman’s ability to engage with their partner. Seeking assistance from a mental health professional may help alleviate the underlying causes of the condition. The Elna Sexual Wellness Center offers sex therapy services.
MEN’S SHOCKWAVE THERAPY
Erectile dysfunction can be treated with low intensity shockwaves that open constricted blood vessels in the penis. The treatment restores the blood flow that allows for spontaneous erection upon arousal, with no drugs or side effects. Shockwave therapy is now available for ED.
Testosterone replacement therapy (TRT), is a hormone replacement therapy often prescribed to counter the effects of male hypogonadism, or low testosterone production. When the body no longer produces sufficient amounts of testosterone, replacement therapy is an option.
P-SHOT FOR MEN
PRP therapy is as effective for men (the P-Shot) as for women (the O-Shot). The use of a man’s own blood factors to boost sexual response carries no heart-related risks. The injection floods the penis with regeneration cells that immediately begin revitalizing muscle, tissue and nerves. The therapy is non-invasive, with no side effects.
