Premature ejaculation is a common ejaculation problem where a male ejaculates too quickly during sexual intercourse. Occasionally, premature ejaculation is not a cause for concerned but if it is happening too often then it may help to get treatment.
The are many physical and psychological factors which can cause premature ejaculation. Common physical issues can be caused by problems with your prostate, thyroid or using recreational drugs. Psychological problems can be caused by stress, anxiety, depression and in some cases, relationship issues.
There are many things you can try yourself before seeking medical help. This can be through counselling and therapy. If you are still struggling and other methods have not helped, then it may be beneficial to consider getting medical treatment. Antidepressants (SSRIs) are designed to help with depression but have also been known to be effective in delaying ejaculation.
