Treatments for Premature Ejaculation

Multiple forms of treatment are available for Premature Ejaculation, PE.

For optimal results, more than one form of treatment may be required.

Treatment

  • Certain anti-depressants called SSRI’s (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors) have delayed orgasm as one of their side effects and thus these medications can be used to treat Premature Ejaculation
  • A tricyclic antidepressant, Clomipramine, can be used if SSRI’s are ineffective
  • Topical anesthetic creams can be applied to the glans and shaft of the penis 45 minutes prior to intercourse to reduce sensitivity and delay orgasm.  If a condom is not used, the female partner may also complain of decreased sensation.
  • Medications for erectile dysfunction, such as Viagra® (sildenafil) may also help specific patients with premature ejaculation
  • Squeeze technique is an exercise where the male or his partner squeezes  the penis just behind the glans (head of the penis), pinching the urethra, until the urge to ejaculate subsides.  After about 30 seconds, sexual activity can resume until the urge to ejaculate returns and the steps can be repeated.
  • Psychosexual counseling can also help, especially when men have previously had normal ejaculation and have developed P.E later in life.

Premature Ejaculation is common and does not have to go untreated.  If you would like private, dignified, consultation regarding Premature Ejaculation or any other sexual dysfunction, the physicians at the Dallas Center for Pelvic Medicine are ready and willing to help.
