Premature Ejaculation Causes
What Causes Premature Ejaculation?
Although a lot of people don’t realize it – premature ejaculation is actually the most common sexual dysfunction for men.
With over 30% of men experiencing PE at some point in their lives, the number of men suffering from premature ejaculation far exceeds the comparatively small number of men who have impotence or erectile dysfunction (ED).
Premature ejaculation does not get nearly as much publicity or discussion as erectile problems, and many men often feel embarrassed or “emasculated” if they find themselves encountering problems with premature ejaculation. Most suffer needlessly for years as they don’t realize there are treatments for premature ejaculation.
What causes premature ejaculation? This is a very good question – however there is not a simple answer to this question. The exact cause of premature ejaculation isn’t known. While it was once thought to be only psychological, doctors now know premature ejaculation is far more complicated and involves a complex interaction of physical, hormonal, psychological, or biological factors.
Many experts feel that early sexual experiences may influence our sexual behavior and could establish a pattern that can be difficult to change later in life – such as situations like early masturbation where young boys or men learn to climax quickly in order to avoid getting “caught” or “discovered” by their parents or siblings.
Masturbation patterns are formed at a fairly young age – and as a result many men spend several years learning to climax quickly in order to avoid detection – especially since at that age young males find themselves in a situation whereby other family members are somewhere in the home while they’re secretly masturbating somewhere else in the house.
Fast forward several years to a time when men are having sexual relations and wish to last much longer during sex – however they have been programmed over a number of years to reach orgasm as quickly as possible – and this can be a hard pattern to overcome.
Another cause of premature ejaculation has to do with sex and guilt. Depending on the household a man grows up in (and the parents views on sexuality) some men may have guilty feelings about sex that increase their tendency to “rush” through sexual encounters.

Common Causes of Premature Ejaculation
Aside from psychological causes, there are a number of possible causes of premature ejaculation. Some of these can be physical and/or biological, and these are often easier to treat. Other factors that are thought to contribute to premature ejaculation are listed below.
6 Possible Causes of Premature Ejaculation:

Causes of premature ejaculation - Explained
Several factors can potentially increase your risk of developing premature or early ejaculation problems, as noted above.
Erectile Dysfunction. You may be at a higher risk of premature ejaculation if you have experienced occasional or consistent problems in getting or maintaining an erection. Fear or anxiety associated with “losing your erection” may cause you to hurry through sexual encounters.
Health Problems. If you have chronic or serious pre-existing medical conditions, this can be another leading cause of early ejaculation. Conditions such as high blood pressure or heart disease may make you feel nervous or anxious during sex and may unknowingly be causing you to rush to achieve climax as soon as possible.
Low Serotonin/Testosterone. As noted above, many researchers believe that low serotonin levels in the brain and/or neurotransmitters can be a primary cause of premature ejaculation. This is why anti-depressant medications (SSRI’s) are often prescribed for off-label use as a treatment for premature ejaculation.

The key to stopping premature ejaculation and restoring your sexual stamina is to get help sooner rather than later. The causes of premature ejaculation can be ingrained over many years, and the longer you live with premature ejaculation, the more devastation can occur in your relationship.
If you have a doctor who doesn’t take your premature ejaculation seriously, get another opinion. Seek out a sex therapist who can refer you to the right professionals, or consider one of the many premature ejaculation treatments that currently exist. No matter what you choose – you need to take action, and soon!
There are a number of premature ejaculation treatments available for men suffering with PE. Some you can try at home, some require a doctor’s or therapist’s supervision, while some are natural and some require a prescription. Keep in mind that while some of the techniques below work well for many men – some, such as psychotherapy may only work for a small percentage of men.
Of the premature ejaculation treatments available to men, herbal premature ejaculation pills are one of the most popular with men, and can often be the fastest treatment for eliminating premature ejaculation quickly.
Fortunately, premature ejaculation pills are also one of the safest and most affordable treatment options for men with PE. Herbal premature ejaculation pills are completely natural – have few or no side effects, and are comparatively quite affordable to other methods.
Prexil was designed to help quickly and naturally stop premature ejaculation – and help men last longer during sex. Our researchers chose the most potent and effective herbal ingredients used for centuries in eastern medicine due to their prolific effect on restoring sexual potency and increasing sexual stamina.
It is recommended that men use Prexil for a 4 to 6 month program to achieve the most dramatic improvement in sexual stamina. At that point – early ejaculation should be effectively eliminated – at which point some men stop using Prexil altogether, while many men continue to use Prexil on a “maintenance dose” of 1 capsule every 2nd or 3rd day – to keep their sexual performance at the highest possible level!
