Please continue reading down below to learn everything you need to know about the causes of premature ejaculation and how American Male Medical can help.

What is the most common cause of premature ejaculation?

Premature ejaculation is a condition that occurs when semen ejaculates from the penis sooner than expected. The most common causes of premature ejaculation include:

Biological Factors

Biological factors such as hormone imbalances, brain chemicals, infections, chronic conditions, medications, aging, and inherited traits can play a major role in premature ejaculation. Additionally, if you have a sexual condition called erectile dysfunction, you may experience premature ejaculation as a symptom.

Mental Factors

Psychological factors such as chronic stress, marital problems, depression, insecurities, and sexual trauma can contribute to premature ejaculation. Whether you’re stressed about work, have had unpleasant early sexual experiences, or are in a fight with your spouse, premature ejaculation can occur.

How can I cure my premature ejaculation?

Treatment for premature ejaculation will be dependent on the root cause of the problem. Once you’ve been diagnosed, American Male Medical can provide you with the following treatment options:

Hormone Replacement Therapy

If low testosterone is causing your premature ejaculation, then hormone replacement therapy is an effective way to treat it. Our men’s health specialists will assess your testosterone levels and give you the exact level of testosterone you need. These injections will increase your sex drive, boost your energy, help with mental clarity, and improve your muscle mass, and your sleep quality.


Certain medications, including phosphodiesterase-5 inhibitors, antidepressants, pain relievers, and topical numbing agents, can be prescribed to treat premature ejaculation. Discuss with your physician what medications can potentially help decrease your premature ejaculation symptoms.


If your premature ejaculation is caused by a psychological factor, then counseling can help you overcome this condition. Behavioral therapy, sex therapy, or couples counseling could significantly improve your sex life.

Pelvic Floor Exercises

Pelvic floor exercises three times a day can strengthen weak pelvic floor muscles. By performing regular kegel exercises, your pubococcygeus muscle will become much stronger and will help control ejaculation.

How can I naturally prevent quick ejaculation?

If you aren’t interested in medications, there are ways to help prevent quick ejaculation naturally. Before using natural remedies, we still recommend you visit American Male Medical in order to determine the underlying cause. Our men’s health physicians can provide you with a comprehensive treatment plan including natural alternatives. Ways to naturally prevent quick ejaculation include:

• Masturbating before having sex
• Deep breathing exercises
• Dietary changes
• Daily exercise
• Behavioral therapy
• Pause-squeeze technique
• Zinc supplements
• Stop-start technique
• Chinese herbal medicine
