Premature Ejaculation

Premature ejaculation is a sexual disorder that causes you to ejaculate sooner than you’d like during sexual intercourse. It can lead to problems with relationships, frustration, and even embarrassment in the bedroom.

The cause of premature ejaculation isn’t always known. It could be physical, mental, or a combination of both. In many cases, common factors that increase your risk of developing it include:

  • Stress, anxiety, or depression
  • Poor body image
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Relationship problems
  • Hormone imbalance
  • Prostate inflammation
  • Genetics
Diagnose and Treatment of Premature Ejaculation?

SouthWest Urology offers advanced diagnostic capabilities including on-site hormone testing, physical examination, and a complete medical history. The more we know, the better we can prescribe treatment and achieve success.

Common treatments that we recommend and provide include:

Medications – Taking certain medications can help eliminate premature ejaculation.We might recommend taking different medications depending on your unique diagnosis. These include:

  • Antidepressants
  • Medications that delay ejaculation
  • Medicines that reduce ED symptoms

Hormone treatments – If you have unbalanced hormones, you can experience a range of situations. Premature ejaculation is just one common result of hormone imbalance. Fortunately, hormone therapy helps reduce sexual problems.

Anesthetic creams/sprays – Anesthetic creams and sprays, or numbing agents, can reduce sexual sensation to delay ejaculation. These topical products are generally applied about 10-15 minutes before sexual intercourse. When used correctly, they allow you to delay ejaculation longer than you usually might. However, following the product’s instructions closely is vital to success.

Premature Ejaculation exercises – Our experts at SouthWest Urology will show you which premature ejaculation exercises can increase stamina in the bedroom.

Effective exercises for improved sexual function include:

  • Pelvic floor exercises
  • Pause-squeeze techniques
  • Stop-and-start techniques

Condoms – Wearing certain types of condoms can help as well. This is perhaps one of the fasted and easiest ways to treat this condition. Ideal condoms will contain numbing agents or thick latex. These types can delay ejaculation during sexual intercourse by decreasing sensation.

PulseWave Therapy – PulseWave therapy is an increasingly popular treatment. Also known as GAINSWave therapy or low-intensity shockwave therapy (LISWT). It can enhance erections and works well for patients who have erectile dysfunction. However, it also provides benefits for patients dealing with premature ejaculation. We use low-intensity sound waves to achieve several outcomes. These include:

  • Accelerating new blood vessel growth
  • Removing micro-plaque
  • Improving blood flow
  • Stimulating growth factors in the penis
