Ejaculation Problems

ejaculation problemsAn ejaculation is the release of seminal fluid or sperm from the penis when climax or orgasm has been reached.

Ejaculation for a male lasts only a few moments but it is the timings of ejaculations than can be crucial.

A high proportion of men will suffer from ejaculation problems at some point in their lifetime.

Many men will prefer not resolve any such problems and continue to suffer unnecessarily due to the delicate and embarrassing subject matter.

“It is estimated that a man will ejaculate or climax before his female partner in almost half of all sexual encounters.”

There are basically three distinct type of ejaculation problems that could occur.

Premature Ejaculation

Premature Ejaculation is the early or involuntary release (ejaculation) of seminal fluid. Studies and surveys have indicated  that around a third of all sexually active men experience this at some point in their life.

Most males are not entirely sure how long sex should last before ejaculation. Studies have also indicated that the average time for sexual intercourse and ejaculation was just over 5 minutes.

However, most experts are of the opinion that setting a timescale for climaxing is meaningless, and that the individual (and his partner) should decide whether they’re happy with the time it takes for him to ejaculate.

It is estimated that a man will ejaculate or climax before his female partner in almost half of all sexual encounters.

Delayed Ejaculation

To a lesser extent and quite the opposite to premature ejaculation is delayed ejaculation. This is when a man has extreme difficulty ejaculating during sexual relation even though he may be very aroused and has a normal erection.

A UK study revealed that around 1 in every 20 men have this problem at some time in their life.

Certain health conditions, such as diabetes, and certain medicines, such as those that treat high blood pressure, can cause premature or delayed ejaculation. But in the majority of cases, the causes are psychological and treatable.

Retrograde Ejaculation

Possibly the rarest and littlest known of  ejaculation problem is retrograde ejaculation. Instead of seminal fluid being released from the aperture at the end of the urethra (the tube that passes from the bladder through the penis, and carries urine), it can reverse and travel to the bladder.

The sensation of climax is still experienced but there is no, or very little, sperm. This problem does not create any great danger to health, but it can affect the ability to reproduce.

Many ejaculation problems can be resolved with simple self-help techniques, but see your GP if you feel that it is severe, or if it is ongoing.

The overriding fact to remember is that almost all ejaculation problems are treatable.
