During the evolution of human sexuality, the ability to control the time of ejaculation has been one of the most important characteristics of the sexual health of couples. For this reason, the lack of control in ejaculation has a profound psychological base effect and its treatment must be carried out through a psychological therapy to the man or the couple. The ejaculatory alterations, especially premature ejaculation is one of the most common complications of adult men and men with premature ejaculation report low levels of sexual satisfaction compared to men with normal ejaculation.
Premature ejaculation, or lack of control of ejaculation, is the inability to exercise voluntary control over the ejaculatory reflex so that once a man reaches a certain level of sexual arousal he ejaculates automatically and quickly after or even before vaginal penetration. Because intravaginal ejaculation in patients with premature ejaculation usually occurs, it is rarely a cause of infertility.
If this is the case, ejaculation happens before vaginal penetration, couples can perform some assisted reproduction procedure for solving the problem of infertility.
Currently, there are protocols to treat premature ejaculation that last between 8 and 12 weeks, going to consultation normally once a week or every 15 days depending on the case.
The used therapies are those that have empirical support derived of fields like sexual medicine and experimental psychology and they are internationally accepted techniques that are part of the consensus guidelines of the International Society for Sexual Medicine for the treatment of premature ejaculation.
These protocols can be applied individually or to the couple, and are adaptable to each case, they include the latest advances in sexual medicine at the pharmacological and psychological levels.
The treatment´s main goal is that the patient reaches the control over his ejaculation, by doing so he can lead a satisfactory sexual life.
