Medications Addressing Premature Ejaculation

Understanding Premature Ejaculation

Premature ejaculation is a common sexual concern where ejaculation occurs sooner than desired. This can be embarrassing and distressing - but it’s not uncommon. 

Premature ejaculation is a widespread sexual dysfunction, impacting an estimated 21–31% of adult males in Australia. This condition affects men of all ages, marital statuses, and ethnic backgrounds. If premature ejaculation happens occasionally, you shouldn’t be concerned. If it happens more than you’d like, it could be a good time to check in with your doctor.

Causes Behind Premature Ejaculation

The causes of premature ejaculation can be complex, ranging from psychological factors like anxiety to physical conditions such as erectile dysfunction. In some cases, it's a combination of both. Drugs and alcohol can make this worse, as can prescription medication. 

Identifying the underlying cause is essential in choosing the right treatment approach.

When to Seek Medical Advice

If premature ejaculation becomes a regular occurrence and causes concern, it's important to consult with a healthcare professional. They can offer guidance, assess the situation, and suggest appropriate management strategies. Our medical experts at Burst Health have a range of treatments at their disposal and offer discreet and private consultations. 

Open communication with your partner and including them in discussions can also be beneficial. 

Seeking advice early can lead to more effective treatment and help alleviate any associated stress or anxiety. Additionally, our Burst Health healthcare professionals can determine if the condition is due to physical factors, psychological reasons, or a combination of both, ensuring a more targeted approach to treatment. Remember, premature ejaculation is a common issue, and seeking help is a positive step towards improving your sexual health and well-being.

Diagnosis and Treatment Approaches

Diagnosing premature ejaculation typically involves discussing your sexual history and specific experiences with a healthcare provider. Treatment options vary, including behavioural techniques, counselling, and medication.

Behavioural Techniques and Counseling

Behavioural techniques, such as the 'stop-start' and 'squeeze' methods, can be effective in managing premature ejaculation. Counselling or sex therapy can also be beneficial, especially when psychological factors play a significant role. Therapy can be a valuable way for couples to address the issue together.

Role of Medication in Managing Premature Ejaculation

Medication is a key component in treating premature ejaculation. Options include local anaesthetic sprays, which reduce sensitivity, and certain antidepressants known to delay ejaculation. It's crucial to follow medical advice and understand potential side effects.

These medications are designed to address the specific physical mechanisms that lead to premature ejaculation, offering a more controlled sexual experience. Additionally, the correct use of these medications can significantly improve sexual satisfaction for both partners. It’s important to start an open dialogue with your healthcare provider to find the most suitable medication for your needs, ensuring an effective and safe treatment plan.

Erectile Dysfunction Medications and Their Impact

In cases where erectile dysfunction coexists, using medications to treat ED can also improve control over ejaculation. This integrated approach can be particularly effective for comprehensive sexual health management.

Kegel exercises, which strengthen pelvic floor muscles, can also aid in controlling ejaculation. Regular practice of these exercises can enhance efficacy in managing premature ejaculation.
