How to Treat Premature Ejaculation?
Here are three techniques for taking control of premature ejaculation. You can first try these and if they don’t work you can book an appointment with the doctors at FullMast.
1. Behavioral Techniques
Such a therapy includes simple steps like masturbating for an hour or two before your sexual intercourse to delay the ejaculation. You may be also advised to avoid sexual intercourse for a certain period and focus on other sexual plays to remove the pressure from your sexual encounters.
2. Pelvic Floor Exercises
At times weak pelvic floor muscles may affect your ejaculation process. Pelvic floor exercises help in strengthening these muscles, hence helping in delaying the ejaculation during intercourse. For these exercises you need to identify the right muscles, focus on tightening your pelvic floor techniques, and repeating the same thrice a day.
3. The Pause-Squeeze Technique
Also there is a method called the Pause-Squeeze Technique in which you may need to do the following:
- Begin your sexual intercourse as usual that include stimulation of the penis until you have complete urge to ejaculate.
- Ask your partner to squeeze the end of your penis at the point where the glans (the head) joins the shaft, and keep squeezing for a few seconds, until the urge to ejaculate passes.
- Make your partner repeat the same process whenever required.
Practice these sessions until you reach the point where you can delay ejaculation naturally.
