How to Treat the 4 Most Common Ejaculatory Dysfunctions

Part of being a guy is confronting things that make us uncomfortable, or are downright scary.

With that in mind, we’re going to talk about four of the most common ejaculatory dysfunctions that men often face, and what you can do about it.  No matter how brave you are, discussing issues in the bedroom can be a potentially terrifying topic.

Of course, the only way to solve a problem is to face it head on, so let’s get to work on the subject of ejaculation problems.

As younger men, we take the simple process of sexual activity for granted. First is stimulation, then climax—and at climax, semen is ejected. It was a straightforward, natural procedure. As we have gotten older though, some of us may have noticed that this once simple system isn’t always so clear-cut. Sometimes we encounter issues with ejaculatory or erectile dysfunction.

The 4 Most Common Ejaculatory Dysfunctions

Ejaculatory dysfunctions can manifest in four common ways. At best, each can be embarrassing—while at worst, they can lead to avoidance of intimacy and infertility. Generally speaking, the four most common ejaculation problems can be separated into the following categories:

  • Premature Ejaculation
  • Delayed Ejaculation
  • Retrograde Ejaculation
  • Anejaculation

Some of the causes behind each of these can be anatomical, in which case it can be extremely hard or impossible to fully treat—but there are options for management if this is not the case. First, it is important to understand what these different types of dysfunctions are, and how they are diagnosed.

1. Premature Ejaculation

Most of us are already familiar with this term. Premature ejaculation is characterized by reaching climax too quickly—typically within less than a minute of intercourse.

However, it is more commonly identified simply as not lasting as long as either you or your partner would like. Anxiety and heightened sensitivity tend to be the main culprits, though sometimes there can be neurological origins behind PE as well.

2. Delayed Ejaculation

Delayed ejaculation on the other hand is when climax takes longer than you or your partner would like. This can be just as uncomfortable as PE.

Delayed ejaculation results in not reaching climax even when fully erect and stimulated—and can be experienced generally or only situationally.

This is a less common ejaculatory problem, but origins are similar to PE in that they can be either physical or psychological.

3. Retrograde Ejaculation

Retrograde ejaculation is also known as dry ejaculation. As the name insinuates, this is characterized by some or all of your semen being released back into the bladder at climax, rather than outside of the body.

While this can be an alarming concept to consider, and over time can lead to infertility, it is relatively harmless otherwise. Men can still reach climax and sexual satisfaction while experiencing retrograde ejaculation.

The cause is typically a weekend muscle at the neck of the bladder. While normally ejaculation is a one-way street with the bladder closed off, if compromised, this can result in backward flow. A medical professional can test for retrograde ejaculation through physical exams and sometimes a urine analysis.

4. Anejaculation

Finally, there is anejaculation. This dysfunction is defined by no ejaculation at climax. Similar to delayed ejaculation, this may occur in every sexual situation, or only occasionally.

Anejaculation is typically linked to stressors or psychological issues—which can range from deep-seated trauma or something as simple as being nervous about providing a sample at your physician’s office.

Anejaculation may or may not accompany anorgasmic dysfunction, during which one cannot reach orgasm as well.

How Medications and Behavioral Techniques Can Treat Ejaculatory Dysfunctions

Now that we’ve covered the most common ejaculatory dysfunctions, let’s discuss the most common ways to treatthem. You’ll be happy to learn that there are more than a couple easy ways to go about treating and curing ejaculatory dysfunctions, but all require the assistance of your doctor

How Medications Affect Ejaculatory Problems

There can be pharmacological causes and treatments for some of the above ejaculatory dysfunctions. The most obvious course of action if you have started to experience any of these problems after beginning a new medication is to address it with your doctor.

Several of these could be the result of side effects. Fortunately, in some cases an alternative medication may be prescribed in order to ease or even erase the ejaculatory issue, while still treating the original medical challenge.

On the other hand, certain prescriptions meant to treat diabetes could help convert and support in curing retrograde ejaculation.

How Behavioral Techniques Can Treat Ejaculatory Problems

When it comes to treating premature ejaculation, certain tried and true behavioral techniques can be effective treatments. You should start by becoming keenly aware of your sexual excitement level. One tested method is the stop and start technique, wherein you and your partner may implement breaks in arousal to elongate the period prior to ejaculation.

In addition, practicing relaxation techniques, mental distraction during or leading up to intercourse, and alternating the kinds of stimulation during a sexual situation are also reliable methods to fight against PE.
