Why Premature Ejaculation
Psychological Causes for Premature Ejaculation
Some doctors believe that early sexual experiences may establish a pattern that can be difficult to change later in life such as:
• Situations in which you may have hurried to reach climax in order to avoid being discovered
• Guilty feelings that increase your tendency to rush through sexual encounters
Other factors that can play a role in causing Premature Ejaculation include:
• Erectile Dysfunction. Men who are anxious about obtaining or maintaining their erection during sexual intercourse may form a pattern of rushing to ejaculate which can be difficult to change.
• Anxiety. Many men with Premature Ejaculation also have problems with anxiety — either specifically about sexual performance, or caused by other issues.
Experts believe a number of biological factors may contribute to Premature Ejaculation, including:
• Abnormal levels of brain chemicals called neurotransmitters
• Abnormal reflex activity of the ejaculatory System
• Certain thyroid problems
• Inflammation and infection of the prostate or urethra
• Inherited traits
Rarely, Premature Ejaculation is caused by:
• Nervous System damage resulting from surgery or trauma
• Withdrawal from narcotics or a drug called trifluoperazine (Stelazine), used to treat anxiety and other mental health problems
Although both biological and psychological factors likely play a role in most cases of Premature Ejaculation, experts think a primarily biological cause is more likely if it has been a lifelong problem (primary Premature Ejaculation).
