OK guys, I had a rather embarrassing appointment with my family doctor and we had a chat about my condition. To be fair to him he seemed to know quite a lot about PE so I didn’t have to do too much explaining about my experience. So it turns out that premature ejaculation is actually pretty common, it just depends on the definition. As I mentioned in my previous post I last max 2 minutes. Some men say that they have PE but they actually last more than 10 minutes so it comes down to everyone’s expectation as well.
He said that it happens mostly to young guys who have just started having sex, but it can happen to pretty much anyone. He also mentioned that if your intercourse is lasting less than 2 minutes then it can almost certainly be classified as premature ejaculation as on average the sexual intercourse lasts more than 5-6 minutes. So, now we have an almost definite diagnosis that I suffer from premature ejaculation.
There can be several causes of premature ejaculation though so no 100% answer what causes it. One of the main reasons is definitely anxiety. Anxiety that you are having a sex, anxiety that you might not last long, anxiety because you have a new relationship and so on… Another option is that it’s inherited!!! Apparently you might have been born with it, and it turns out that if that’s the case then it’s most likely your father had it too. But these are extremely rare cases and I’m praying I’m not one of them. Funnily enough, if I was a caveman then I’d have more chances of getting children as in the old days it was believed that if you climaxed quicker you’ll have more chances of getting kids.
Anyway, he recommended few different things to try so this is what I’m going to do in the next few weeks/months. Fingers crossed I will have some improvements with PE.
I’ll report back as soon as I can, either with some positive news or not so positive, so stay tuned.
