by Dr. Surya Bhagwati on Feb 12, 2022
For men, there are very few things more embarrassing than climaxing too early. 30-40% of men are said to experience Premature Ejaculation at least once in their lives . But since sexual disorders like Erectile Dysfunction (ED) and Premature Ejaculation (PE) are taboo in India, very few people go to the doctor to get a diagnosis. This is where the Ayurvedic home remedies for premature ejection discussed in this post come in.
What Is Premature Ejaculation?
Premature ejaculation is defined as an uncontrolled ejaculation before or shortly after penetration. For some men, this can mean lasting as little as 33 seconds .
In Ayurved, Premature Ejaculation is known as Shukragata vata. The Anangaranga treatise is an ancient sex manual written in the 15th or 16th century that discusses this problem .
Common Causes Of Premature Ejaculation:
- Mental stress
- Fear or anxiety
- Drinking alcohol
- Smoking tobacco
- Excessive masturbation or oral sex
- Recreational drug use
- Engaging in sex at an early age
- Exhaustion or fatigue
- Increase in body temperature
- Eating foods with a hot constitution
Along with PE, these factors can also lower sperm/semen quality and cause other sexual disorders like erectile dysfunction .
