    How long has PE been an issue? Does this occur during masturbation too or only penetration ?

    It's been an issue since many years(may be around 9 years) since the day I started masturbating. Yeah it occurs during masturbation too. Became aware of it when I started having intercourse.

    Sometimes masturbating a few hours before intercourse can help. Not knowing your medical history or background I can only give a general response. PE can be contributed by psychological and/ or biological factors which could include certain thyroid problems, prostate or urethral inflammation and/or infection, inherited traits and other factors. 

    Typical treatments for premature ejaculation include behavioural techniques, creams, oral medications, penile injections and sexual health counselling. Also, bear in mind that it may take some time to actually find the treatment or combination of treatments that works for you. If you havent already, I suggest consulting with your GP for medical check up and a sex therapist in your area.

    Hi Dr Ng, 

    I guess it would depend on the clients presenting issue. Kegal exercises are benefical for both male and female to help with sexual function. I usually reccommend X3 sets of 10 a day or at least 3 times a week. 

     

    The pubo-coccygeus (PC ) muscles act as a pump, generating a greater flow of stimulating blood to the genitals to help increase arousal. Kegel exercises can increase the intensity and length of orgasms for both men and women. The stronger the  PC muscles, the more control you have over the action. Toning these muscles can assist men to develop stronger erections. Also learing to tighten, relax and push out the PC muscles can allow a man to control his sexual system the way he controls a car. Tightening is the accelerator, acting to increase arousal. Relaxing or pushing out the brake can help prevent ejaculation.
