PE is one of the most common male sexual dysfunctions. It is affecting on average 40% of men worldwide. Its prevalence is on the rise in men from the Indian subcontinent. Frequently occurring PE may lead to less enjoyable sex and cause troubles in the relationship. It can result in fertility issues, embarrassment, anxiety, and depression.

Though the exact cause is not known, anxiety, stress, and fear are some of the main factors of PE. 

Causes of Premature Ejaculation

Premature Ejaculation: Ayurvedic Perspective

As per Ayurved, ejaculation is controlled by the Vata dosha. Vitiation of Vata (especially Apana Vata that resides in the reproductive organs) leads to PE. A psychological, emotional factor of nervousness, fear, or anxiety may be involved, but these are also due to the aggravated Vata dosha.

‘Shukragata vata’, a condition described in Ayurved, has similarities with premature ejaculation.  Ayurvedic texts have used terms like ‘Kshipram munchati’, ‘shukrasya sheeghram utsargam’, ‘pravritti/Atiseeghra pravritti’ to describe classical features of ‘shukragata vata’ denoting early, quick, or premature ejaculation.

Ayurvedic Medicine for Premature Ejaculation

Ayurved offers the best medicine for premature ejaculation problems. Ayurvedic treatment for premature ejaculation/sukragata vata consists of herbs and herbo-mineral formulations, external massage oils having vrishya (aphrodisiacs), balya (tonics), vatahara (drugs/procedures which pacifies vata dosha), adaptogenic (psychotropic drugs), and sukrastambhaka (drugs helpful to delay ejaculation) properties.

Vajikarana (sexual medicine/aphrodisiac therapy), one of the eight branches of Ayurved, exclusively deals with sexual problems in men like premature ejaculation, poor erection, loss of libido, impotence caused by various physical and psychological factors as well as sterility and frigidity in women.
