Premature ejaculation treatment
Dr. Rameez Shaikh, MD Consultant Psychiatrist and Sexologist says that “Depending on the reason, there are several therapy options for premature ejaculation. Among these are behavioural treatment, counselling, and medicines. Most reasons of premature ejaculation are often addressed initially with behaviour therapy and/or psychotherapy to address any underlying emotional issues, performance anxiety, or stress”
Behavioral treatment entails experimenting with various strategies to postpone your orgasm. Its purpose is to educate you how to regulate your body and emotions. Among the methods are:
- Start and Stop
- Distracted thinking
- Squeeze therapy
Antidepressants, particularly selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors such as citalopram, escitalopram, fluoxetine, paroxetine, and sertraline, as well as the tricyclic antidepressant clomipramine, can help postpone premature ejaculation.

Premature ejaculation has also been treated with erectile dysfunction drugs such as sildenafil, tadalafil, vardenafil, and Avanafil, particularly in men with underlying erectile dysfunction.
