Premature ejaculation or early ejaculation is one of the most common sexual dysfunction issues in men, affecting nearly 30% of men all over the world. It is the condition when the ejaculation of semen occurs before one desires it, and is typically seen in younger/sexually inexperienced males. The condition is often associated with over-eagerness and anxiety and needs more of a behavioral intervention than a medicinal one. Nevertheless, there are many pills, sprays and creams that are known to prevent premature ejaculation. Let us consider the best natural treatment and home remedies for this condition:
Asparagus is a natural aphrodisiac. Many Unani doctors as well as Ayurvedic herbalists are known to recommend Asparagus roots boiled with milk as a natural treatment for preventing premature ejaculation. In fact, one can use this remedy for treating erectile dysfunction and impotency as well.
2. Drumstick soup
Boil the flowers of drumstick or moringa in water for a few minutes and drink this soup/tea twice a day to improve sexual function in both men and women. This recipe is one of the most powerful natural treatments for impotency, thinness of semen as well as premature ejaculation prevention.
3. Ginger juice

Men who are inconsistent in their exercise are more likely to suffer from early ejaculation. After all there are ‘muscles down there’ which need exercise to strengthen them. Kegel exercises are especially recommended for this condition.
6. Get adequate sleep
Lack of sleep can fuel low serotonin levels in the brain which, in turn, can affect sexual performance. So get plenty of sleep.
7. Systemic desensitization
Systemic desensitization is the best way to prevent early ejaculation. It is important to talk to one’s partner about using distraction or trying to ‘switch off sexually’ for a while to delay climax. The partner can play an important role by introducing physical stimulation gradually. Here are 2 techniques for systemic desensitization:
- Stop-start method-In this method, one stimulates the penis until one has the desire to ejaculate then Stops until the desire goes away. Repeat this over and over to train the penis into delaying ejaculation.
- Squeeze method– Stimulate until about to climax, then squeeze the penis to prevent ejaculation.
Regularly doing these techniques can help.
In majority of the cases, reassuring oneself that it is a temporary problem can actually work wonders. With time and experience, one can overcome this issue. It is very important that one’s partner is supportive during this phase.
9. Treat underlying psychological issues
Often, recurrent early ejaculation could have underlying psychological issues like frustration about the condition or other stresses, anxieties and/or depression stemming from relationship problems, financial issues and so on. It helps if you can talk about these things to someone, either to one’s partner,to a sex therapist or professional psychological counselor.
10. Make lifestyle changes
Heavy drinking, smoking and use of recreational drugs could lead to premature ejaculation over the long run. Take the steps to quit these habits in order to improve your sex life.
The best premature ejaculation pills contain SSRIs or selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors. These are available with prescription under brand names like Sertraline, Fluoxetine etc. Men who suffer from recurrent early ejaculation can take these meds under the supervision of their healthcare provider. Many see improvement with just a few doses. There are also topical creams available which need to be applied to the penis an hour prior to intercourse.
