Here the most common techniques and treatments used to stop premature ejaculation:
The 'Stop-Start' Strategy: One of the oldest and most effective ways to stop premature ejaculation is through this method with your partner or by yourself. As you feel yourself approaching orgasm and ejaculation, stop the stimulation and take a break, then repeat until you feel more confident in your ability to control your ejaculation.
The 'Squeeze' Technique: During sex, as you’re approaching ejaculation, squeeze the area between the shaft and glans of the penis to prevent ejaculation. Most of the resources on the squeeze technique recommend squeezing the penis for about 30 seconds to stop premature ejaculation. Since everyone is different, the ideal amount of time for the technique might be slightly shorter or longer. Using the squeeze technique, you can delay orgasm several times, allowing yourself to perform for longer during sex. Like the stop-start technique, the squeeze technique has its downsides. First, it results in a stop in sexual activity, which can be frustrating for both you and your partner. It can also occasionally reduce the intensity of your erection, which also affects sexual enjoyment.
Masturbating before sex: While there’s no scientific evidence to support this method, many men find that masturbation shortly before sex is an effective way to delay orgasm and stop premature ejaculation. The idea behind this approach is that during the refractory period (a recovery phase that occurs after orgasm), most men won’t be able to orgasm again. The end result is a longer average time to orgasm and, for their partners, better sexual satisfaction.
Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors (SSRIs): Right now, there aren’t any medications specifically approved to treat PE. However, there are a variety of existing drugs -- particularly medications commonly used to treat depression and anxiety disorders -- that have been shown in clinical practice to be effective in helping men delay orgasm and ejaculation. SSRIs are prescription medication, meaning you’ll need to speak with a doctor about this PE treatment method. Most medications in this class also have side effects, which you’ll want to discuss with your doctor prior to considering treatment.
Gels, Creams and other topical treatments: Most gels and sprays use local anesthetics such as lidocaine -- the same anesthetic that’s used by dentists and laser hair removal technicians. Studies show that this topical anesthetic combination is fairly effective. However, topical treatments like lidocaine/prilocaine cream may have a downside. Because they numb the penis and reduce sensation (for both parties), they might contribute to erectile loss–a symptom noted by more than 50% of the men that received the cream in a 2002 study.
