Have Relationship Questions? Ask a Counselor for Answers ASAP
Hello, I am Rafael. Thanks for asking your question - I'm here to support you. (Information posted here is not private or confidential but public).
I am very sorry to know about your situation
Could you please describe little more his problem? Do you mean he ejaculates or attains orgasm too soon?
If this is what you mean, this problem is known as a sexual dysfunction, specifically "premature ejaculation disorder".
I see, thank you for replying, then it is indeed "premature ejaculation disorder".
For how long has he been presenting this problem?
I see, then it's become chronic.
Most times there are multiple factor causing this dysfunction. The first step he needs to take is to get a complete physical evaluation to make sure there is no medical problem causing or leading to this disorder. The urologist and endocrinologist could assess if everything is fine with his hormones and physical health related to his sexual functioning.
Then if everything seems fine physically after those exams, you could be confident that the nature of this dysfunction is mostly psychological...
which means factors from stress, to anxiety, depression or any form of unresolved conflict could be leading directly or indirectly to this dysfucntion
Then he would need psychological treatment by a competent sex therapist
Effectively addressing the anxiety, mood or stress related disorder, or if there is any marital issue involved, would lead him to rehabilitate from this disorder.
You could work on learning how to improve your communication, level of trust,, affection, passion and intimacy, he would learn relaxation technique and coping skill to reduce levels of anxiety, you would not force intercourse but focus on sex play, for him to learn how to regulate his level of arousal.
The extra problem here is that every time this happens he literally conditions or programs his body and mind to perpetuate the same behavior, reinforcing the anxiety and the disorder, making it more difficult to relax and perform next time, this is why the more necessary treatment is delay, the lower the chances for rehabilitation, and he has already been suffering of this disorder for 5 months, and that's very concerning.
here the very fuel of the disorder is anxiety and stress, the more stressed he feels about it, the worse it would get.
Since sexual behavior and performance is very powerfully impacted and even depends on mood, mental and emotional states, this is why it is necessary to resolve the anxiety/stress problem first in order too perform and enjoy sex life in healthy and fulfilling ways.
Please do so as soon as possible, he would need previous evaluations and then a sex therapist if everything seems fine a the physical level. Please do work on learning how to relax, control anxiety, not pushing intercourse and he could look for a stress management program too. If he contacts the county mental health department and requests a referral for an evaluation and counseling, they could offer support through a local mental health clinic that you could afford.
Please feel free to contact me of you have any further questions, since I am here to support you as possible.
