  Treatment and Potential Cures of Premature Ejaculation

There are several different avenues of treatment for P.E., including medication, lifestyle changes, dietary changes, and even meditation. Each style of treatment has its own specific benefits, but they all can have potential drawbacks.

As far as medications go, there are prescription medicines, herbal supplements, and desensitizing creams. In cases where P.E. is caused nearly entirely by mental problems, desensitizing creams can be worthless. Medications that are used to treat P.E. include:

Dapoxetine (Priligy)- Dapoxetine is the only drug approved anywhere specifically for the treatment of P.E., but it hasn't been approved by the FDA for use in the United States. The drug has, however, been through many tests and is on the way to being approved by the FDA as the first P.E. drug treatment in the United States.

Tramadol (Ultram, Tramal)- Tramadol is similar to opiates and is approved by the FDA for use as a pain killer. Tramadol has low abuse potential, few side effects, and increases performance time between 4 and 20 fold in over 90 percent of men.

Clomipramine (Anafranil)- Clomipramine is sometimes prescribed to treat PE. One side effect of the drug can help delay ejaculatory response. The side effect is described by the Mayo Clinic as "Increased [sic] sexual ability, desire, drive, or performance."

Other drugs, not explicitly prescribed for P.E. can help, including a number of opiates, and several anti-depressants, though in some cases these drugs can keep a man from ejaculating at all.

Lifestyle changes, dietary changes, and meditation can all be used to overcome stress, in ways that do not involve medication. Simply exercising the stress away, eating healthier, and spending time meditating (which can help you process the stresses of daily life) can directly affect mood and sexual capability. When stress and anxiety are decreased, most people's sex lives improve vastly, and men with P. E. are no different.


If you or the man you love (or have sex with) suffers from P.E., now you know that there are various causes of, and ways to help with, your problem. There is no need to have an unhappy sex life, especially due to premature ejaculation. Talk to your doctor, or do some research for yourself, and you may just find that, after you make a few minor changes, you will be well on your way to a much more fulfilling sex life.

As usual, remember: Sex isn't nasty, and what happens between two consenting adults is their business and their business alone. Never be afraid to ask for what makes you happy!
