The International Society for Sexual Medicine (ISSM) defines premature ejaculation as a condition of the body that is considered abnormal.
So the best treatment is to see a doctor and talk to a specialist directly, who can provide advice on appropriate treatment for your condition. Once the doctor has diagnosed your premature ejaculation, the next step is to determine what treatment options are available.
Currently, there are various treatment options available to help you improve control over premature ejaculation, which can increase sexual satisfaction for you and your partner.
Using medication to treat premature ejaculation (PE)
There are several types of medications used to treat premature ejaculation, including
• Oral medications
• Creams and sprays to desensitize
• Intracavernosal injection: Your healthcare provider can give you guidance on which medication is effective for you and monitor your progress in treatment.
You may have seen or heard about nasal spray for treating premature ejaculation, which is available only in certain clinics because premature ejaculation can differ in its characteristics from man to man, or even in the same man with different partners or situations. Therefore, discussing specific factors related to the issue with your doctor is also important. The doctor will examine your health and ask about individual concerns regarding premature ejaculation and its impact on your sexual relationship.
Medications from sources other than those ordered by a licensed physician or pharmacist should be carefully scrutinized, as these medications may be counterfeit and pose a danger to your health. Counterfeit drugs often use brand names similar to genuine drugs, or may use suspicious names (such as “Orgasm Pills” or “Premature Ejaculation Reducer”).
The World Health Organization has defined counterfeit drugs as “deliberately and fraudulently mislabeled with respect to identity and/or source. Counterfeit drugs may contain inappropriate quantities of active ingredients, or contain hazardous substances such as chalk, floor wax, or rat poison. These cheaper substances are mixed in order to mimic the appearance of the genuine product.”
You may see advertisements for treating premature ejaculation online or in various media, which may pique your interest to try these different methods. However, you should always be wary of the potential dangers that may arise because buying medications online may result in receiving counterfeit drugs. Unless you purchase from a properly registered pharmacy, there is a high chance that you may receive untested or fake medications.
The problems that can arise from using counterfeit drugs can vary, such as not producing any effects or being so severe that it can cause death. It is best to consult a physician to learn about safe treatment options.
Speak with your doctor about your expectations for treating premature ejaculation from the beginning. The goal of treatment is to help you control ejaculation and have a satisfying sexual relationship with your partner. However, if you still have sexual or relationship problems, your healthcare provider may suggest that you seek additional sex/relationship therapy.
