Premature ejaculation may respond to pelvic floor exercises

Premature ejaculation can be a very troubling problem for men. The embarrassment associated with premature ejaculation along with the lack of sexual gratification for both sex partners is hard to handle. Lifelong premature ejaculation can often be treated naturally by pelvic floor exercises reports Science Daily on April 13, 2014.

It has been demonstrated by researchers for the first time that pelvic floor exercises can be effective for the treatment of premature ejaculation in men who have had lifelong problems. A significant minority of men are hit with the problem of premature ejaculation at some time in their lives. Premature ejaculation has been defined by the International Society of Sexual Medicine as "ejaculation within a minute."

It has been reported by the European Association of Urology 33 of the 40 men trained to exercise their pelvic floor muscles experienced improvements with this problem within 12 weeks. Pelvic floor exercises are often used to help men deal with incontinence. Dr Antonio Pastore ot Sapienza University of Rome lead this research team. Pastore said these rehabilitation exercises are easy to perform and have no reported adverse effects. Aside from improvements in their sex-lifes there were also improvements in self-confidence in the men who responded well to pelvic floor exercises. This is a low cost intervention with no side-effects.

The U.S. National Library of Medicine reports that premature ejaculation is most often caused by anxiety and too much stimulation. With premature ejaculation the man ejaculates prior to penetration or just after penetration. This generally leaves the couple feeling terribly unsatisfied. Sometimes men try to distract themselves by thinking nonsexual thoughts in order to avoid getting sexually excited too fast. Practice and relaxation may also help men deal with the problem. Now pelvic floor exercises also offer another potentially very helpful natural treatment for this condition.
