Premature Ejaculation Q & A

What is premature ejaculation?

Premature ejaculation is a sexual disorder that causes you to ejaculate sooner than you’d like to during sexual intercourse. It can lead to problems with relationships, frustration, and even embarrassment in the bedroom. Simple treatments with the experts at AS Urology can reduce premature ejaculation to restore your quality of life.


What causes premature ejaculation?

The cause of premature ejaculation isn’t always known, but common factors that increase your risk of developing it include:

  • Stress, anxiety, or depression
  • Poor body image
  • Erectile dysfunction 
  • Relationship problems
  • Hormone imbalance
  • Prostate inflammation
  • Genetics

The team at AS Urology offer advanced diagnostic capabilities, including on-site hormone testing. They review your symptoms and medical history and complete a physical exam to develop a treatment plan that’s right for you.


What are my premature ejaculation treatment options?

The AS Urology specialists offer a wide array of premature ejaculation treatments that can improve your performance during sexual intercourse. They might recommend:



Taking certain medications helps eliminate premature ejaculation. Your urologist might recommend taking antidepressants, medications that delay ejaculation, or medicines that reduce erectile dysfunction symptoms.


Hormone treatments

If you have unbalanced hormones, hormone therapy helps reduce sexual problems, including premature ejaculation and erectile dysfunction. 


Anesthetic creams/sprays

Anesthetic creams and sprays, or numbing agents, can reduce sexual sensation to delay ejaculation. Apply these topical products to your penis, as recommended by your provider, about 10-15 minutes before sexual intercourse.


Premature ejaculation exercises

The AS Urology team will show you which premature ejaculation exercises can increase stamina in the bedroom. Effective exercises for improved sexual function include pelvic floor exercises, pause-squeeze techniques, and stop-and-start techniques that help delay ejaculation.



Wearing certain types of condoms containing numbing agents or thick latex can delay ejaculation during sexual intercourse by decreasing sensation.


PulseWave therapy

PulseWave therapy, also known as GAINSWave therapy or low-intensity shockwave therapy (LISWT), can enhance erections if you have erectile dysfunction or premature ejaculation. Your provider uses low-intensity sound waves to accelerate new blood vessel growth, remove micro-plaque, improve blood flow, and stimulate growth factors in the penis.


Don’t live with premature ejaculation or erectile dysfunction if it embarrasses you or causes problems with relationships. Schedule an appointment with the experts at AS Urology by phone or book online to get treated today.
