Thank you for the information!

Premature ejaculation is the most common sexual dysfunction in men under the age of 40 so you are not alone! It is typically thought to be a psychological disorder and not a physical one. With this said the most important treatment is to seek out a sexual therapist who is experienced with this sort of thing. They will be able to give you AND your wife ways to better deal with the issue and techniques to help cure it.

Other things that are used are desensitization creams that are applied directly to the penis, and certain anti-depressants called SSRIs if your doctor thinks that they are indicated.

Here is a more complete explanation of the treatments and some of the techniques:

I feel so much better today, and upon further investigation believe that there is a chance that the responses I got saved me from a serious, even life threatening situation. I am very grateful to the experts who answered me.

Corrie MollPretoria, South Africa

I thank-you so much! It really helped to have this information and confirmation. We will watch her carefully and get her in for the examination and US right away if things do not improve. God bless you as well!

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
