Signs and Symptoms

Premature ejaculation is typically associated with an underlying erectile dysfunction diagnosis, but there are a variety of other causes of the disorder. It may be caused by hormonal problems such as an imbalance of luteinizing hormone, prolactin, or thyroid stimulating hormone, for example. Although there are a variety of medical causes, some are more emotional or psychological in nature. As an example, premature ejaculation may also be the result of extreme sensitivity, stress, or depression.

There are a few options available to men seeking premature ejaculation home remedies. Among them are exercise, behavioral therapies, and nutritional supplements. Let’s take a closer look at some of the best home remedies for treating and managing this disorder.

1. Pelvic Floor Exercises

Strengthening the pelvic floor is one of the most common solutions to premature ejaculation. When dealing with this disorder, this is the preferred treatment because the technique is simple and there is no need for additional equipment. Three of the most effective pelvic floor exercises are the back squeeze, side squeeze, and chair squeeze. The following are instructions on how to perform each exercise:

Back Squeeze 

When using the back squeeze method, you should position yourself on your back. Make sure your knees are bent and pointing up as you draw your penis in toward your body. For best results, you should hold this for five seconds before releasing it. The next step is to squeeze your anus muscles and hold for five seconds. During this exercise, you should ensure that you are engaging your pelvic floor muscles.

Side Squeeze

Start by lying on your side so that you can practice the side squeeze method. Add a small pillow between your legs to assist you in keeping your legs apart. The next step is to squeeze your legs together, hold it for five seconds, and then release.

Chair Squeeze

For the final exercise, you will need to sit on a chair and get comfortable. Next, squeeze your pelvic muscles as if you were stopping the flow of urine. Similarly to the other methods, you will hold this for five seconds and then release it.

For optimal results, these pelvic floor exercises should be performed three to five times a day. The goal should be to perform both slow and fast sets. There is no need to worry about finding time for these exercises, since they take less than five minutes to complete. As you now understand the methods for strengthening your pelvic floor muscles, let’s proceed to practice.

2. Practice

Practice is the key to improving your performance in any endeavor. It is beneficial to practice before sexual activities in order to increase your stamina. To reduce your urge to climax quickly, it is recommended that you masturbate about an hour or two before engaging in sexual activity. Although this is a simple method of managing the disorder, if this technique does not prove to be effective for you, there are various behavioral therapies available.

3. Behavioral Therapies

Behavioral therapies are activities that can be performed during sexual activity in order to control the climax. Two of the most common methods are to pause and squeeze and to stop and start. The squeeze technique involves pausing once you feel close to climax, then squeezing the penis shaft between two fingers and your thumb. For around 20 seconds, apply light pressure just below the head of the penis and then resume your sexual activity. This method may be repeated as often as necessary.

As part of the start and stop method, you stop the sexual activity once you feel that you are approaching climax, then continue and repeat as necessary. As a result, you will be able to recognize the various stages of arousal and ejaculation will be delayed. Behavioral therapies are relatively effective and may be used in conjunction with other treatment options, such as supplements and vitamins.

4. Supplements

When it comes to premature ejaculation home remedies, supplements like zinc and magnesium can be beneficial. Taking both of these supplements can increase testosterone levels and libido as well as increase the length of time it takes to reach climax. The following foods are rich in zinc and magnesium:

  • Oysters
  • Almonds 
  • Beef
  • Lamb
  • Spinach
  • Garlic

Alternatively, you can try topical solutions if you find that these remedies do not provide you with the results you are looking for.

5. Topical Solutions

Using condoms is an excellent way to reduce the sensitivity of the penis during sexual interaction. Furthermore, some condoms come with topical numbing solutions that can help control the climax and delay ejaculation. Popular brands such as Trojan contain benzocaine and lidocaine, two of the most common topical analgesics.

When it comes to topical solutions, some prescription options include those that contain both lidocaine and prilocaine. Other topical solutions containing agents such as benzocaine can be obtained over-the-counter in cream, gel, and spray form.
