Do you finish a little too fast in bed? It’s an age-old worry that we’ve heard time and time again. Premature ejaculation is such a common theme in our society, that it has become symbolized through pop culture as the easiest way to depict men with sexual problems. In reality, premature ejaculation can be severe and gradually take a serious toll on a man’s mental, physical and social wellbeing. One of the many worries that come with the sexual dysfunction revolves around pregnancy. Does it affect couples trying to conceive? Is it generally easier or harder to have babies?
Insemination is the process by which semen is transmitted to the egg during sexual contact and is needed for natural conception. Even if there are no issues with the amount or quality of sperm, ejaculation problems will prevent couples from conceiving. Detecting ejaculation issues will aid in the treatment of fertility issues and increase the likelihood of couples becoming pregnant.
Premature ejaculation (PE) happens when a man ejaculates earlier than they (or their spouse) would like during sexual intercourse. You shouldn’t be concerned if it happens infrequently. However, if you notice that you ejaculate earlier than you like regularly, you should seek assistance. Self-help is often effective, but if it isn’t, medical help is needed. PE, like ED, is a non-life-threatening disease that has a significant effect on the quality of life.
Is there a connection between infertility and premature ejaculation?
Early ejaculation may cause irritation, rage, and agitation between partners, compromising the quality of the relationship and indirectly affecting fertility. Most men become nervous and self-conscious, which exacerbates the problem. As a result, male partners prefer to avoid engaging in sex to avoid embarrassment. If all other criteria are met, however, early ejaculation does not normally affect the chances of pregnancy (intercourse at the time of ovulation and release of male secretions in the vaginal canal). The male partner can release before even entering the vaginal canal in serious cases of premature ejaculation. For obvious reasons, the chances of becoming pregnant in either of these extreme cases are slim to none.
Nearly all men have experienced a bout of premature ejaculation at some point in their lives, but the true meaning of the disorder may not be what most men believe it is. According to a study conducted in the 1950s, most men ejaculate within the first two minutes of penetration, indicating that the “two-minute law” is ineffective for determining premature ejaculation.
Premature ejaculation can affect fertility, particularly if there is an existing medical condition causing the premature condition, so it’s best to have it treated as soon as possible. Discuss your sex life and ability to conceive with your doctor, and then work together to determine the cause and treatment for your pre-ejaculation.
What causes premature ejaculation?
Premature ejaculation may have a variety of reasons, depending on whether it’s a lifelong condition or an acquired condition. A chemical imbalance in the parts of the brain that regulate ejaculation can cause lifelong premature ejaculation. If you’ve had premature ejaculation your whole life, you’ll need less stimulation to achieve orgasm, which means ejaculation will occur earlier than you’d like. While psychological issues such as performance anxiety may lead to lifelong premature ejaculation, they are rarely the only cause.
Performance anxiety is a common cause of acquired premature ejaculation. Anxiety about sexual success, fear of being caught in a sexual act, or anxiety about a specific situation, such as a new relationship, are all possible causes of anxiety. Some religious and cultural values can also make you hesitant to engage in sexual activity.
Erectile dysfunction, a need for more intense sexual stimulation to get and sustain an erection, or concern about the erection issue itself may all contribute to acquired premature ejaculation.
The problem of men avoiding help for premature ejaculation and fertility
Premature ejaculation has a social stigma attached to it. Many men believe that seeking support implies that they are less manly than they would like others to believe. No matter how society views the problem, there is no connection between premature ejaculation and manliness. Men become more mature about the issue of erectile dysfunction and premature ejaculation as they get older, and are more likely to seek support.
Some males, however, ejaculate so early that they are unable to penetrate the vaginal wall. They ejaculate even before entering, resulting in the marriage going unfinished. This causes them a great deal of humiliation, and they refuse to discuss it.
Worse, they develop a massive guilt complex as a result of their inability to get their wife pregnant. This becomes the “elephant in the room,” which neither partner wants to talk about because it’s such a sensitive topic! It creates a lot of anger and annoyance, and it can even contribute to divorce.
It’s important that men with premature ejaculation issues confront their fears and worries. In this day and age, many social stigmas, taboos and secrets are being torn down, particularly the ones that should be torn down. The earlier we accept that there’s a problem, the faster we can fix it.
