Premature ejaculation (PE) occurs when a man ejaculates sooner than anticipated or one to three minutes into sexual intercourse. There are several natural/at home techniques that can be done to help control premature ejaculation. Here are some natural ways to prevent PE before seeking medical help.
During sexual intercourse, when you feel you are close to ejaculation, slow down or stop the tempo. Taking a break during sex can help you better control your arousals and be more aware of when you are going to ejaculate.
Focus on slow and deep breaths during sexual intercourse. This helps the body relax and manage your premature ejaculation. Deep breathing can also help reduce anxiety and any performance pressures that can contribute to PE.
Masturbating a few hours before sexual intercourse can help manage PE. The reason this may help in controlling premature ejaculation is due to the creating a longer refractory period. A refractory period is the time it takes for you to become sexually aroused again. Since masturbating before sex creates a longer refractory period, this could potentially help you last longer during sex.
Using condoms can help decrease the sensation. There are some condoms that have thicker material that can also help reduce sensitivity.
Desensitizing products like numbing sprays and creams reduce the sensitivity when having sexual intercourse. These products can be found in pharmacies without needing any prescription.
If premature ejaculation is happening always or almost always during sexual intercourse, reach out to a medical provider. Medical professionals can provide a PE treatment based on your specific needs.
