If you’ve just started experiencing premature ejaculation, they are some simple tricks you can try to help reduce the occurrence.
They’re self-help techniques you can try if you’re experiencing premature ejaculation.
Some of them include;
Masturbating before sex
Some men have found masturbating an hour or two before sex helps to reduce the excitement, allowing them to last longer with their partners.
Use a thick condom
If your penis is extra sensitive to stimulation, you’ll benefit from using a thick condom which will decrease sensations to a bearable limit, preventing premature ejaculation.
Take deep breaths
Taking shallow, sharp breaths during sex builds anxiety and quickens the excitement, which might cause you to climax earlier than desired.
Take deep breaths during the act and if you feel the excitement building to a crescendo, hold your breath to shut down the ejaculatory reflex briefly.
Let your partner get on top. If they feel you are about to climax, they can pull away to continue when you’ve gained control of your responses.
Distract yourself with random thoughts
To stop the horses from fleeing the stable prematurely, you can distract yourself by thinking random thoughts, like recalling the names of all the roads or bridges in your city or counting 100 from backward.
If the problem persists regularly for up to 3 months, book an appointment to see a doctor.
With the help of treatment from your doctor and these adjustments to your lifestyle, you should see positive results soon.
