Premature ejaculation is a condition that affects millions of otherwise virile men each and every day in America. The effects of the condition are wide ranging and go beyond a limited sex life. It can lead to sexual embarrassment and psychological scarring far beyond the bedroom. Studies have shown that those who suffer from premature ejaculation often feel many of the same inadequacies as those who suffer from erectile dysfunction. This remains true even when the two conditions aren’t linked (though they often are).
Compounding the problem is the fact that there are a host of products out on the market that promise to help with premature ejaculation but often do nothing but make the problem worse. Fortunately, there are products out there that do help. In this article we will take a look at both sides of the coin. We will tell you what products out there to avoid, and which ones you should look into.
To Avoid: SSRI Antidepressants
Though premature ejaculation has, in many ways, been traced to the amount of serotonin in the blood, this is not sufficient reason in and of itself to begin taking prescription antidepressants to solve the problem. This hasn’t kept many doctors all around the country from prescribing these drugs, however, even in the absence of extraneous proof of depression. Therein lays the problem. While such drugs (Prozac and Zoloft fit into this category) have their merits in the treatment of psychiatric conditions, they are far too powerful and side effect laden to use for premature ejaculation alone. If you are depressed, and feel this may be leading to your premature ejaculation, you may wish to try one of these drugs under care of a physician or a psychiatrist. If premature ejaculation is your only problem, however, it would be best to find a different route to recovery.
To Avoid: Desensitizing Creams
One of the more popular remedies for premature ejaculation can be purchased on the internet and at pretty much any adult video store you find. It is the desensitizing cream, and it is a topical remedy that promises to reduce your sensations of feeling during intercourse. Do they work? Sure, they do what they advertise (reviewssemenax, well, most of them, ). But where are you then? Often these same creams have been linked to the reduction of pleasure in your partner as well. Is the best answer to your condition really to reduce the amount of pleasure you and your partner receive during sex? Only you can answer that, of course, but where there are better remedies out there, we think the creams and lotions should be left on the shelf.
To Think About: Erectile Dysfunction Drugs
If your premature ejaculation is tied to erectile dysfunction (you tend to rush through sex to climax to avoid the humiliation of losing your erection), other drugs may such as Cialis and Viagra may help, which can be procured with a doctor’s prescription. They will help your erection to remain firm throughout intercourse, and let you take your mind off the need to finish quickly.
