Yoga and Ayurvedha Cure for Premature Ejaculation (PE)
Premature ejaculation is a common complaint and is only rarely caused by a physical or structural problem. Happening early in a relationship is most common, and often caused by anxiety and over stimulation. Other psychological factors such as guilt may also be relevant. With time, the condition usually improves without formal treatment.
A man experiencing premature ejaculation will have problem controlling an erection. When muscles in the penis contract to stop the inflow of blood and open outflow channels, erection is reversed. Ejaculation happens before the individual or couple would like, ranging from before penetration to a point too soon after penetration for the couple to feel fully satisfied.
Very early ejaculation, occurring prior to entry into the vagina, may prohibit a desired pregnancy. A continued lack of ejaculatory control may lead to sexual dissatisfaction on the part of either or both partners. Sex can become nervous, a nightmare or even up to the point of avoiding it out of fear that his sexual performance is inadequate. This may be a factor in sexual tension or discord in the relationship.
There are many factors resulting a reverse in erection. Depending on the well being of the person, it may be due to several causes. It can be due to stress or to certain physical conditions, emotional or psychological factors and even poor health issues like high cholestrol.
In general, practice and relaxation will help you deal with the problem. Some men try to distract themselves by thinking non-sexual thoughts (such as naming baseball players and records) to avoid becoming excited too fast. Some helpful techniques include the following:
The "stop and start" method:
This involves sexual stimulation until the man recognizes that he is about to ejaculate. The stimulation is then removed for about thirty seconds and then may be resumed. The sequence is repeated until ejaculation is desired, the final time allowing the stimulation to continue until ejaculation occurs.
The "squeeze" method:
This involves sexual stimulation until the man recognizes that he is about to ejaculate. At that point, the man or his partner gently squeezes the end of the penis where the glans meets the shaft for several seconds, withholding further sexual stimulation for about 30 seconds, and then resuming stimulation.
The sequence may be repeated by the person or couple until ejaculation is desired, the final time allowing the stimulation to continue until ejaculation occurs.
There is no prevention for this disorder, though relaxation can reduce the likelihood of its occurrence. In most cases, the man is able to learn ejaculatory control through education and practice of the simple techniques outlined. Chronic premature ejaculation may be a sign of anxiety or depression, both of which could be helped by psychiatric intervention.
Antidepressants such as Prozac and other selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) may be helpful, as they have a common side effect of prolonging sexual stimulation before ejaculation. Make sure you consult your doctor before taking any of these drugs.
Local anesthetic creams may be applied to the penis to decrease stimulation. Decreased feeling in the penis may prolong the time before ejaculation. Condom use may also have this effect for some men.
Call for an appointment with your health care provider if premature ejaculation is causing a problem and does not respond to traditional methods.
According to Ayurveda, premature ejaculation is due to vata being aggravated. Vata is characterised by its qualities of quickness and heightened sensitivity to the sense of touch. This gives a predisposition toward quicker ejaculation and when vata is increased in a person with vata, sex cannot be sustained, or preejaculation is common.
Fear, anxiety or nervousness may be associated due greatly to the irritated vata dosha. It may also be due to high cholesterol deposits in the blood vessels of the penis and the whole reproductive system. This causes lack of sphincter control, resulting premature ejaculation when blood vessels become thick and narrow so that blood supply to the muscles of the penis and prostate is inadequate. To deal with this problem, we need to balance vata by following some of these effective ways:
Change of Diet
A man with vata disorder, should change or maintain a vata-soothing diet. Follow a low cholesterol diet if you have a high cholesterol. Keep sugar intake low if you have diabetes as men with this problem tend to experience premature ejaculation.

Regular massage to the penis helps improve blood circulation and stimulate the muscles, dilating the blood vessels and using the mustard oil has a heating effect that’s more effective.

Prostrate problem like prostatitis, is associated to premature ejaculation. A massage to this area with castor oil is also helpful. You can also use sesame oil.
Apply a few drops of oil to the perineum, the spot between the testicles and anus. With circular motions, rub the area. Then complete the massage using light strokes, from the anus toward the base of the penis.
This is not masturbation nor a endorsement of masturbation exercise but an exercise to learn how to control your organ to be ready and not ejaculate.
Stimulate the organ up to the point of ejaculation. Do not ejaculate, instead sit up straight as in a Lotus position, and raise the energy level by pulling or squeeazing the anus inward in a series of tense-release movements, also known as Ashwini Mudra. Do this 10 times to train yourself to be ready and not ejaculate. Start this exercise 1 to 2 hours prior to lovemaking.
Other exercises you can try is learning how to control ejaculation by contracting buttock muscles. Find the marma point located in the middle of the glans penis, on the underside and gently press this point. Simultaneously, squeeaze the anus inward and hold it for about five seconds and then, release. Repeat this for another 9 times. Start this buttock toning about 1 hour before intercourse. This exercise will improve blood flow to the penis and helps maintain erection.
