Are there treatments to help men last longer in bed?
There are a number of different approaches you can take if you want to try and last longer in bed. You can try as self-help technique, therapy or medication.
Before seeking medical advice, you can try to deal with the issue yourself. There are few things you can try to see if they help you to prolong intercourse:
Try masturbating a couple of hours before you plan to have sex.
Take a deep breath as you feel ejaculation approaching, this can help to to delay the ejaculatory reflex.
Sex with your partner on top, which gives them control and means they can slow down or pull away as you feel yourself getting closer.
Couples therapy can be useful if you’re in a long term relationship. It gives you an opportunity to explore any issues that could be affecting your sex life and relationship and get guidance on how to improve.
A therapist will also be able to explain other techniques for delaying ejaculation, for example the stop-go technique and the squeeze technique.
The stop-go technique involves stimulating the penis almost to the point of ejaculation, then stopping for 30 seconds before starting again. This should happen several times until eventually ejaculation is ‘allowed’.
