What can I do about premature ejaculation?

Harris H. McIlwain, MD
Rheumatology

If you have a problem of premature ejaculation, try some of the following “self-help” tips:

1. Enjoy your partner without focusing on your sexual performance.

2. Use a strong, thicker condom that will make sensitivity lessen.

3. Try "squeeze therapy.” This means as the ejaculation approaches, squeeze the head of your penis by hand. Wait patiently while the response passes, then continue on.

4. Remember that practice makes perfect! Increase the frequency of your ejaculations to gain control.

5. Ask your doctor for a referral to a sex therapist.
