Premature Ejaculation Causes Male Infertility

Introduction: Premature Ejaculation Causes Male Infertility

Premature ejaculation is one of many possible causes or factors that contribute to male infertility, the inability to produce a pregnancy after about one year of unprotected sexual activity. Premature ejaculation is defined in a variety of ways, including ejaculating before a man's partner has climaxed or ejaculating before vaginal penetration has been achieved. If a man ejaculates frequently before penetration, the chances of successfully conception and pregnancy drop. In addition, unsatisfying sexually experiences due to premature ejaculation may lead to frustration and reduce sexual intimacy and lower the chances of achieving pregnancy, even if ejaculation occurs after penetration. Premature ejaculation may result from a number of physical and emotional factors, including depression, stress, sexual performance anxiety, low confidence, and a history of sexual repression. Relationship issues, such as miscommunication, anger, and emotional distancing can also contribute to erectile dysfunction. Extreme arousal, drug and magnesium deficiency are other potential causes of premature ejaculation.

Many men normally experience premature ejaculation occasionally or at some point in their lives. But frequent or consistent premature ejaculation that interferes with a satisfying sex life or successful attempts at conception should be evaluation by a healthcare provider. Treatment of premature ejaculation is focused on the cause and may include learning techniques to control stimulation and arousal. Medication, such as some antidepressants may also be used in treatment. These may include Prozac, Zoloft, Celexa, Lexapro, and Effexor.
