An informative guide for both men and women

This guide is aimed at men but your partner may find this of interest as well. If your problem is affecting your sex life you’re your partner will be involved as well and will want to understand more about this condition so that they can provide help and support.

This guide is presented in an objective but sympathetic manner and with a deep understanding of the distress this problem causes.

Discuss this condition with your spouse/partner

Don’t be embarrassed about discussing this with your spouse/partner. Many men do feel anxious or ashamed about mentioning this to their partner for fear of looking ridiculous or feeling less than a man but this is not the case.

It is tempting to keep this problem to yourself: but please realise that this is a common condition and most importantly, is a medical condition and not something to hide away. It affects a wide range of men at some point in their lives but can be very easily treated.

The old saying ‘a problem shared is a problem halved’is very true here.

Premature ejaculation and performance anxiety

Premature ejaculation can lead to ‘performance anxiety’; a condition where men become anxious about how they will perform during sexual intercourse which interrupts the spontaneity of the act. This causes frustration and a lack of self-confidence which increases each time during intercourse.

This can lead to long term conditions such as erectile dysfunction.

Note: if you want to know more about this condition then visit our erectile dysfunction guide.

This is by no means automatic and there are men who develop premature ejaculation without experiencing this but, nevertheless, it is a factor.

The good news is that there are a variety of treatments for this condition and these are discussed in more detail within this guide.
