Suffering from quick release of sperm while masturbation or having sex with your partner and wondering why you have acquired this condition? Quick release of sperms or semen is called Premature Ejaculation. Premature Ejaculation is defined as the inability to stop ejaculation (unless it’s too late) or ejaculating in less than a minute during sexual intercourse. Occasional premature ejaculation issue is very common and there is nothing to worry about this condition. But, if the quick release of sperm keeps happening every time you masturbate or have sex, then you need to get the problem fixed. In order to treat premature ejaculation problem, you and your doctor should understand what causes the quick release of sperm.

Types of premature ejaculation

There are two types of premature ejaculation. Lifelong (primary) and acquired (secondary) premature ejaculation.

Lifelong premature ejaculation is considered to be the case if you have been ejaculating in less than a minute after sexual intercourse of even before actual penetration and if this has been happening ever since you started masturbating.

Acquired premature ejaculation is considered if you never had quick ejaculation problem before but started seeing the issue recently or been facing it continuously for the past several times.

As said, occasionally ejaculating too soon isn’t an issue at all. This can happen when you have a longer gap from previous ejaculation or when you are too excited with your partner.

Causes of premature ejaculation

The causes of premature ejaculation are classified into two categories:

  1. Psychological causes
  2. Biological causes.

Psychological causes for premature ejaculation

  1. Over excitement during the act
  2. If you were sexually abused n the past
  3. If you are suffering from low self confidence for any reason such as poor body image etc
  4. Stress, anxiety and depression
  5. Thinking too much about premature ejaculation issue and ‘what if’ you are not able to make your partner happy with your performance. (Performance anxiety)
  6. Feeling of guilt (in fact any negative feeling that arises in your brain for any reason during sex can cause erection problems or premature ejaculation).
  7. If you are suffering from Erectile Dysfunction, you may be in a rush to perform the act before your erection goes down. This can also cause quick release of sperms.

Problems in your relationship. This is kind of a cyclical issue if it arises due to problems in bed. However, irrespective of the reason, if you are having issues in your relationship and are trying to make love with your partner, you may either end up having erectile dysfunction or premature ejaculation issues.


Biological causes for premature ejaculation

  1. Abnormal hormone levels in the brain (called neurotransmitters)

Neurotransmitters are those hormones that transmit signals to the brain and back from brain to the body. Imbalance of these neurotransmitters, typically, low levels of serotonin can signal the brain to reach orgasm quickly leading to premature ejaculation.

  1. Inflammation or infection of the prostate or urethra

Inflammation or Infection to the prostate gland or urethra can also cause premature ejaculation.

Complications of premature ejaculation

Premature ejaculation can a toll on your mental health and personal life. It can disappoint your partner every time when he/she wants to have fun in the bed and may bring a rift in your relationship. “I see that many relationships came to the verge of divorce because of this treatable premature ejaculation problem” says Dr. Karthik Gunasekaran, sexologist experienced in treating premature ejaculation in Chennai.

“What I would like to convey to every man suffering from quick ejaculation is – please don’t suffer in silence. Get in touch with a good sexologist near you and get your problem fixed. If it is a mental issue, few sessions of therapy may be necessary. If your premature ejaculation is a biological issue, medications are available to treat the problem.” Adds Dr. Karthik Gunasekaran.

  3. Hi doctor, due to Phimosis, I used to masturbate in a prone position since when I was very small, around 8-9 years old. I masturbated prone till I was 20 years old, until I got my circumcision surgery. Post sugery recovery, I continued to masturbate prone, until I read your article and realised how bad it is.

    Now, I quit prone completely and have learnt how to masturbate with the hand method. Initially, it used to be really tough to get to orgasm, but now after some time, I’m orgasming really fast- in about 1-2 mins.

    So after my surgery all issues are sorted, but now when I’m masturbating through traditional way, I’m ejaculating fast/premature. Is it because I’ve just started getting used to the normal way? Or because I’ve switched? Will it get better with time or do I need to consult?
