Regular practice of pelvic floor exercises does help improve lifelong premature ejaculation issues in a small group of men indicated by a study.
Pelvic floor muscles are indeed actively involved in sexual function, and it is but natural to assume that by rather improving the function of these muscles, one will indeed improve one’s sexual performance as well as the outcome. Premature ejaculation has been defined as occurring “within a minute.”
Techniques which happen to be similar to those used to help people with incontinence, which includes how to contract their perineal muscles to improve their strength as well as endurance have been used while conducting studies by researchers on the issue.
They also undertook stimulation men’s pelvic floor muscles making use of an electric anal probe and also made use of a strategy called biofeedback to prompt them to practice the perineal exercises. As part of the biofeedback process, electrodes are indeed positioned on the patient’s pelvic floor and converted into sounds or graphics that the patient sees or rather hears.
- Researchers have indeed said the exercises are a bit more complicated than those made use of for incontinence, such as so-called Kegel exercises.
- These exercises are indeed designed to retrain/re-educate the pelvic floor muscles to either contract or lengthen properly on command and depending on the need.
- It is advisable for men who suffer from premature ejaculation to get proper guidance from a pelvic floor physical therapist.
Patients do require need at least four weeks of training (12 sessions) to learn the specific rehabilitation techniques as well as exercises that have been described in this study.
- The pelvic floor exercises, if performed well, can help men with premature ejaculation. They are more cost-effective and do not have potential side effects of the currently used drugs.
- Pelvic floor exercises can indeed be very effective in treating premature ejaculation in men who have been suffering from lifelong problems.
- Premature Ejaculation (PE) does affect a significant minority of men at some point in their lives. There are a variety of treatments, some more effective than others, with some men who do not respond to treatment.
- Pelvic floor exercises are often made use of to help male incontinence, especially after surgery such as operations for prostate cancer.
- Premature ejaculation is indeed a real problem for many men.
- Premature ejaculation (PE) being the most common male sexual disorder, has a serious impact on the quality of life of the patient as well as his partner.
- Intravaginal ejaculatory latency time (IELT) has indeed been defined as the time from vaginal intromission to intravaginal ejaculation. It is often used as a parameter to quantify clinical response to therapy and as a standardized method to compare different treatment modalities in clinical trials.
The focus has been on pelvic floor muscle (PFM) rehabilitation by making use of modifications of the techniques used in the treatment of urinary and fecal incontinence which include physio-kinesiotherapy, electro-stimulation, and biofeedback.
Indeed, one can go in for pelvic exercises in order to cope up with premature ejaculation.
