Hi there. Thank you for posting your question into Ehealthforum. I think you are describing so-called premature ejaculation. It is difficult to understand how this seems to have suddenly started out of the blue as it were. This is a complex subject, all I can do here is a thumbnail sketch about treatments. You basically have three choices and you can use any one or a combination of all:
(1) The DIY approach. This includes masturbation some hours before intercourse. Prolonging foreplay before intercourse. More forceful intercourse to bring her to orgasm quickly. The wearing of several condoms to reduce sensitivity. The use of OTCs like anaesthesia gels to reduce sensitivity. Most of these things yield disappointing results
(2) Behavioural Therapy. These are best learned through Sex Therapy sessions where the femaleâs attitude to quick ejaculation can also be accessed. They involve stop/start techniques and learned behaviour designed to control ejaculation. These take time but an be very effective.
(3) Use of medications like the SSRIâs and certain decongestant. These can be very effective and perhaps only used for special occasions.
One way or the other you should discuss this with your doctor or have yourself referred to a Sex Councillor. I am really confident that you will get better. Sometimes also, these things may be just transient. I hope you found this a bit helpful. Good luck.
