Premature ejaculation refers to a situation where one ejaculates shortly after or even before penetration. There is no time limit that can be used to define it. For many men who experience premature ejaculation, it can be humiliating and embarrassing. To deal with the problem it is important that they understand the causes. Premature ejaculation is caused by many things which involve interaction between biological and psychological factors.
Some doctors believe that early sexual experiences might establish patterns that might be quite difficult to change when one gets older. Some of these situations include where one was hurried to climax during sexual intercourse. It is also said that feelings of guilt tend to rush to climax.
This is a common problem among many men. If they find it difficult to obtain and also sustain an erection when they are having sexual intercourse they may form a pattern where they rush to ejaculate. Anxiety is also known to contribute to premature ejaculation. It could be anxiety over sexual performance or other issues.
There are some known biological factors that are known to contribute to premature ejaculation. If a man experiences hormonal imbalance especially a testosterone imbalance there is a chance that they could suffer premature ejaculation. Also, prostate infections and inflammation are known causes for the condition. If a person has abnormal levels of serotonin which is a neurotransmitter that is usually produced in the brain they could suffer from premature ejaculation. Serotonin signals the brain to delay ejaculation when levels are high and vice versa.
The lifestyle that one lives could have an influence on their sexual performance. Excessive intake of alcohol or abuse of drugs is directly related to premature ejaculation.
There are other factors that could contribute such as lack of sexual expertise. The situation is however not gloomy since there are treatments available for the condition.
