Hello,

There are several approaches to delay ejaculation none involving the national anthem. Low dose SSRI' medications are often prescribed. In large doses they have a side a effect of preventing ejaculation, but in low doses they are often used for delay of premature ejaculation. There are also mechanical techniques that can easily be taught to you by a sex therapist. You can find a sex therapist referral from the www.aasect.org . We are not talking a but a long term complicated process, but a behavioral approach. Best wishes.

Sincerely,

Expert:  Ralph LMHC replied 7 years ago.

Hello,

A SSRI is a selective seratonin reuptake inhibitor. They are used as antidepressants and anti-anxiety medications. In normal does one of the side of effects is interference with ejaculation. So in low doses they the don't stop ejaculation, but rather it to occur in a normal amount of time. Any doctor can write a prescription for one. Examples of such medications are: Paxcil. Zoloft, Celexa, and Prozac. There are many others. This should be a somewhat easy problem to fix. Best wishes and good luck.

Sincerely,
