Being intimate with someone you care about is exciting. Sometimes, too much excitement causes a man to ejaculate prematurely, leaving the woman feeling unsatisfied. Premature ejaculation is quite embarrassing for males but also normal for those not much experienced. As the person grows older, controlling ejaculation is mastered and they are able to say goodbye to these embarrassing episodes. On the other hand, there are cases when the premature ejaculation happens during the adult years. If you are one of these adults who always suffer from premature ejaculation, you might feel quite depressed and fearful of intimacy. It is understandable, of course, that after every premature ejaculation episode, your self-confidence suffers. If the condition is not addressed, you could end up feeling depressed. On top of that, each sexual encounter will no longer be exciting but frightening. The fear of not being to control ejaculation can even lead to erectile dysfunction or impotence. Some would choose to masturbate instead to relive sexual tension and refuse to be in an intimate relationship. Before things become worse for you, you should first admit that you have a problem and seek help. For starters, you and your partner can try several techniques to delay ejaculation. You can also try to learn some calming techniques that could help lessen the level of excitement during sex. If your premature ejaculation has psychological causes, there are psychiatrists that could help you confront these issues. There have been cases that the premature ejaculation is linked with control issues. Since anxiety and stress may play important roles in premature ejaculation, your psychiatrist can work with you to map out an effective plan to manage them. Counseling and medication may be included in the treatment plan. Of course, all these could be quite costly especially if your condition requires prolonged treatment. For faster results at lower costs, hypnotherapy is known to be quite effective in treating phobias, fears, addictions and other stress-related disorders. It would basically involve suggestions and triggers to your subconscious, which is considered to be very receptive to behavioral alteration. Depending on your condition, it could take as long as five to eight sessions with a qualified hypnotist before your problems with premature ejaculation can be cured. Premature ejaculation is a problem that can continually be embarrassing if nit treated or managed well. You would be glad you considered therapy once you find yourself in a sexually-satisfying relationship.
