18 . PREMATURE EJACULATION

18 . PREMATURE EJACULATION

Ejaculation that occurs prior to when a man wishes it or too quickly during intercourse to satisfy the partner. The cause of premature ejaculation is primarily biological. The normal physical response is for the man to experience climax, and therefore, ejaculate approximately 2 to 3 minutes after penetrating the vagina. The normal physical response for women is to build to a climax, or orgasm, about 12 to 14 minutes after coitus (intercourse) occurs.

However, many women may not experience orgasm at all, particularly if intercourse involves only penetration of the vagina by the penis. Other methods of sexual stimulation may be necessary for the woman to attain orgasm.

It is estimated that about 10% of women do not experience orgasm under any circumstances or with any type of stimulation. Premature ejaculation may also be caused or aggravated by psychological factors such as guilt (believing the activity is sinful e.g. premarital or extramarital sex); fear (associated with concerns regarding potential pregnancy, sexually transmitted diseases, or getting caught or discovered); performance anxiety (especially in the inexperienced partner or with partners new to each other); and interpersonal issues affecting the couple.

Premature ejaculation is the most frequently encountered sexual complaint of men and couples. It is most common in adolescents, young adults, and other sexually naive males. Increased risk is associated with lack of sexual experience, lack of knowledge regarding normal male and female sexual responses, and with those individuals who highly associate psychological factors (such as fear, guilt and anxiety) with sexual activity. Prevention : Attaining adequate knowledge regarding normal sexual responses of both males and females prior to engaging in sexual activity may prove useful in preventing this condition.

Premature ejaculation is less likely to occur if the couple engages in sexual activity in these situations: only after they know each other well, feel comfortable with one another, and both partners are consenting, without feeling coerced; in a comfortable, relaxed (not rushed) and private setting; and after contraception issues have been discussed, decided and acted upon by the couple. Symptoms : ejaculation happens before the individual or couple would like.

(This may range from before penetration to a point too soon after penetration for the couple to feel fully satisfied). In homoeopathy medicines like Staphy, Phos acid, Agnus, Caladium, Lyco are used for the treatment. The proper analysis of the case with the qualified homoeopathic physician will give the better results.
