Premature ejaculation (PE) is also popularly known as rapid ejaculation. The central nervous system controls it. When a certain level of excitement is reached in the mind of a man during the sexual activity, the brain sends a signal to the reproductive organ for ejaculation.
Ages affected- 20-55- often; 55 and above- most often.
Self-diagnosable- The primary sign can be the inability to slow down ejaculation for more than a minute.
People may experience-
Stress, depression, guilt, performance anxiety, embarrassment, frustration and relationship problems.
Diet which includes a sufficient amount of zinc and magnesium can help a man increase the time of ejaculation. Foods like soybean, oyster, yogurt, spinach, dark chocolate, garlic, etc. are rich in zinc and magnesium.
