It's almost impossible to get an accurate definition of premature ejaculation: what some couples consider a satisfactory length of intercourse would be very inadequate for others.
Premature Ejaculation is one of the most common sexual problems affecting men today, with studies showing that 1 in 3 men will experience this embarrassing condition at some point during their lives.
Men affected by premature ejaculation lack the ejaculatory control to last long enough in bed to satisfy their partner, and are almost always unable to bring a woman to orgasm.
Premature ejaculation is known to cause a number of problems outside the bedroom such as stress, low self esteem, infidelity and relationship breakdown.
Sometimes, the condition is so bad the man can't have sex because he ejaculates before he can get into the vagina. This can be devastating for a man's self-confidence. And it can be hugely frustrating and annoying for his partner â especially if she wants to get pregnant.
If you have mild PE - for instance, you can last five minutes but would like to last 10 - there's probably no point in going to a doctor. Why? Because you should be able to improve matters by simple distraction techniques. This means turning your mind to something else when you sense that climax is near. For example, you can think about something totally unconcerned with sex or pinch yourself.
If PE is causing you significant problems, it is best to consult an expert for treatment.
Herbal remedies are one of the oldest premature ejaculation cures around, derived from Chinese and Japanese knowledgde of herbal medicine.
Dapoxetine, its UK trade name - Priligy, is a brand new medication, the first one ever to be approved for premature ejaculation condition that affects a number of men all over the globe, in fact affecting more men than erectile dysfunction. Dapoxetine does have the ability to lengthen the time between sexual arousal and climax. It is taken by mouth, in tablet form. The dose is either 30 mg or 60 mg. Dosage depends mainly on your body weight.
The time it takes for Dapoxetine to take effect is somewhere between 1 hour and 3 hours, depending on the response of the individual and the way Dapoxetine is absorbed and metabolized. This was one of the most important concerns when Dapoxetine was being developed. Namely, other medications from its class take very long to work and it took substantial efforts to make Dapoxetine take effect quickly.
The period of time during which the beneficial effects of Dapoxetine can be felt is anywhere between 4, 5 hours and 24. Namely, majority of men has reported that the beneficial effects start to subside after 4 to 6 hours, but there are also those who claim that they have experienced beneficial effects of Dapoxetine after as long as 24 hours.
Newspaper reports appearing in Britain in late 2010 suggested that Dapoxetine helps 77 per cent of males.
