Unsurprisingly, men often feel frustrated and anxious when they climax sooner or have orgasms earlier than their partner wish.
However, many people prefer not to discuss premature ejaculation due to shame and stigma, even though research shows that 1 out of 3 men may experience this condition.
The good news is that there are several home remedies for premature ejaculation, such as supplements, natural remedies, and sexual techniques.
In this blog post we list 7 home remedies to cure premature ejaculation.
Lets dive into it.
A huge factor in our reproductive and general health is our diet. According to research, integrating foods rich in zinc and magnesium into your diet can help improve the time it takes you to climax.
Examples of such foods are oysters, garlic, peas, and dark chocolate. In addition, magnesium plays a critical role in muscle function, while zinc plays a vital role in increasing testosterone levels, thus boosting libido and endurance.
Nutritional Supplements and Herbal Medications
Male sexual problems and erectile dysfunction can arise due to nutritional deficiencies in zinc, magnesium, and other nutrients. Thus, supplements and herbs with these essential nutrients can provide relief from the problem while increasing ejaculation time and reducing acquired premature ejaculation.
Also, ayurvedic medicines and other rejuvenating herbs are filled with the needed minerals and vitamins to improve sexual health.
The pause-squeeze technique is an effective home remedy that some doctors recommend. It works by reducing arousal before the climax.
When you sense that you are close to orgasm, take a break from the activity, and either you or your partner should squeeze the end of the penis, just below the head.
Hold the squeeze for several seconds, so the urge to climax passes. After that, the technique can be repeated as needed. However, when using this method, you have to communicate with your partner to ensure you have the correct timing when pausing.
Stop-Start Technique for Orgasm Control
A popular technique is known as edging, or the stop-start approach, is one remedy that has helped many men gain better orgasm control. It is similar to the pause-squeeze technique.
Once you’re at the peak of arousal and feel close to ejaculating, you can virtually postpone ejaculation by stopping your sexual activity immediately. Then once you feel less stimulated, you can start again. Repeating the process can help you can complete ejaculation control.
Mental distraction is one of the simplest remedies to try, but it has proven effective for many men, especially when the cause is a psychological factor such as anxiety.
The technique works by forcing your focus on thoughts unrelated to sexual activity, such as daily chores, math, weather, etc. It is beneficial when you feel close to reaching orgasm or too turned on.
Pelvic Floor Exercises
When the issue stems from a physical reason, strengthening your pelvic floor muscles can improve your performance in bed. For example, a urologist study proved that pelvic floor exercises such as Kegels could help men with lifelong premature ejaculation by controlling their ejaculatory reflex.
Also, a strong pubococcygeus muscle increases the time it takes to climax. Furthermore, this remedy option is cost-effective and reduces the effect of treatments involving local anesthetics, topical creams, and PDE5 inhibitors.
Masturbating is controversial concerning premature ejaculation. Some believe that it is a contributing factor. However, it may help delay ejaculation hours before penetration, and an earlier sexual release will quickly decrease the urge to climax. Thus, it can reduce the threshold of arousal necessary for orgasm.
