Depending on the causes associated with PE, your doctor may recommend one or more types of treatment to address the problem. There are behavioral psychology options as well as medications and techniques that all may be used to improve sexual stamina and help overcome PE. These include:

    • During sex, it can be helpful to stop during penetration and gently squeeze the glans (head) of the penis for several seconds in order to control the urge toward premature ejaculation.
  • Topical anesthetics and condoms
    • There are certain products available that help reduce sensitivity in the penis which can prolong the duration of intercourse.
