how to stop premature of ejaculation

Premature ejaculation is more common than you may think. Affecting a large percentage of men, premature ejaculation has the potential to lower self-esteem and even jeopardize a relationship but all is not lost. There are several ways to prevent and stop premature ejaculation. Try some of these methods:
  • Breathe Deeply – Make sure you breathe slowly and deeply during intercourse. Rapid breathing arouses the body while slow breathing calms you down. Focusing on your breath also shifts your focus and can prolong your love making experience.
  • Change Positions – There are certain sexual positions that put more pressure on the male. Speak to your doctor or about what positions to avoid in order to prevent early ejaculation.
  • Contract your Muscles – Squeezing your pelvic floor muscles can stop an approaching ejaculation. You can practice contracting these muscles by stopping your urine flow mid stream. If you can do it, it means you are working the muscles correctly.
  • Increase Foreplay – Stimulate your partner first. This will extend the time spent during intercourse and delay your gratification as well.
  • Wear a Condom – Many experts believe that wearing a condom can reduce sensation and prevent premature ejaculation. There are now specially designed condoms available in the market that are created mainly for this purpose.
  • Special Gels – You could ask your doctor to prescribe a local anesthetic gel. This is supposed to be applied to the base of the penis before intercourse and can dull sensations and lessen friction. However, many of these gels can cause an allergic reaction to you or your partner and lead to rashes and soreness.
  • Maintain a Positive Outlook – Performance anxiety and premature ejaculation can form a vicious cycle that is hard to get out of. One thing can lead to another and the situation can only get worse. You therefore need to stay positive and confident.
