Are You Struggling with Ejaculation Issues?
If you are dealing with issues when it comes to your ability to ejaculate properly, you are not alone. Many men struggle with this issue in their daily lives and can find it to be a difficult or embarrassing issue to discuss or seek help for. At The Novus Center, we want to be able to provide our patients with the care they need where they can feel comfortable knowing we are there for them.
When it comes to ejaculation issues, many people think that premature ejaculation is often the issue, but there are multiple types of ejaculation issues that men can struggle with. This includes premature ejaculation, retrograde ejaculation, and delayed ejaculation. Each of these issues is unique and requires a different approach to properly address.
Premature ejaculation is a common issue that many men struggle with. It occurs when the man is unable to delay their ejaculation for less than three minutes or so. Premature ejaculation can cause immense amounts of frustration and can become a negative force during sexual intimacy.
In our ejaculation series, we go over how serotonin is needed to help men delay their ejaculations. The good news is that there are ways to do this naturally. Consuming foods high in tryptophan like seeds, turkey, nuts, tofu, and salmon. Tryptophan converts into serotonin which will help to raise the levels in your body.
You can also take a supplement known as 5-HTP that will also convert into serotonin. Exercising, getting sunlight, and receiving massages can also help to raise serotonin levels and reduce the chance of premature ejaculation.
Delayed ejaculation occurs when a man is unable to reach the point of ejaculation for an extended period of time during sexual activity. In some cases, they may not be able to ejaculate at all. While delayed ejaculation can normally occur from time to time in some men, it can be a chronic lifetime issue for others.
In our ejaculation series, we discuss how a common cause of delayed ejaculation is the extended use of SSRIs like Lexapro or Zoloft. These medications raise the level of serotonin in the body which can delay ejaculation. Another potential cause is low testosterone levels in the body.
Retrograde ejaculation, also known as a dry orgasm, refers to instances when climax is reached but no ejaculate fluid is released. While this issue is not harmful to your health, it can lead to infertility issues. Men who experience retrograde ejaculation are still typically able to become erect and orgasm.
The primary cause of retrograde ejaculation is surgery. It is common in patients who have had to undergo prostate surgery to have their prostate removed or shrunk. Surgery can cause the ejaculate to be emptied into the bladder as opposed to being expelled out through the urethra. The ejaculate is then emptied from the bladder when using the restroom. Unfortunately, there is nothing that can be done about retrograde ejaculation caused by surgery.
