Customer Question

I have had trouble with premature ejaculation for over 20 years, I simply cannot make it more than three or four minutes. What can I do and does masturbation lead to that.

Are you talking about it being a problem when you have sex or when you masturbate?

When I am having sex with my wife.

What have you tried to correct the matter?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
Nothing really that is why I am finally reaching out.
Expert:  Dr. G. replied 4 years ago.
It probably stems from a high level of arousal. You can try to masturbate before having sex and see if that prolongs your ejaculation. You can also try to slow it down when you feel like you are going to ejaculate. Meaning, pull out and leave things alone and just get to hugging, kissing, and rubbing. This will reduce the sensation of ejaculation and you can resume having sex.
