Do not panic. You must understand premature ejaculation. Premature ejaculation is diagnosed when you have ejaculation within one or two minutes of sex, continuously several times with the same partner for over six months. There is nothing called premature ejaculation during masturbation. Premature ejaculation occurs when a man ejaculates sooner during sexual intercourse than his partner. Premature ejaculation is a common problem due to psychological stress and anxiety in most people. I suggest sex therapy and sex counseling for you. If you have a partner, talk to her before and during the act, prolong foreplay and be under no pressure to perform or penetrate. It should all flow and happen naturally. I suggest you read about the star squeeze technique and stop-start method, besides considering delay spray, which is easily available in the local pharmacy. Lifestyle changes, reducing consumption of alcohol, relaxation, exercise, and yoga will all enhance physical well-being and positively contribute to psychological wellness and confidence. Aerobic exercise or running or swimming will increase your stamina and endurance. In terms of treatment, a low-dose anti-anxiety medication from the SSRI (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors) group of medicines may help. Most importantly, you will benefit from seeking one consultation with a psychologist to explore other reasons and underlying psychological problems contributing to your reported difficulty.

Thank you.
