Premature ejaculation - and serotonin

A post for Valentines Day!

Lasting Longer in Bed with Serotonin

As opposed to erectile dysfunction, which tends to affect elderly gentleman, premature ejaculation can affect people at any age and any ethnicity. Is a fact that just about any male, whether is young or old, can have premature ejaculation.

It is possible for a man to have both diseases - problems with erections and lack of control of ejaculation - but usually they are separate entities.

Scientists have found that premature ejaculation has something to do with a chemical in the brain called serotonin. Having low levels of serotonin somebody ejaculates too soon, before he wants to, causing some distress. On the contrary, higher serotonin levels help prevent premature ejaculation.

Well, how can we improve the levels of serotonin in our brain?

Ginkgo Biloba Extract.

The exact mechanism to explain Ginkgo biloba extract's effect on increasing serotonin receptors has not yet been determined. However, Ginkgo is able to counteract one of the major changes in brain chemistry associated with reduction in the number of serotonin receptor sites.

Griffonia Seed.

It comes from the beans of a vine native to Africa. In African folk medicine, Griffonia Seed is well-known to be an aphrodisiac, as well as an antibiotic. It is also used like a remedy for diarrhea, vomiting, and stomachache. Recent research suggests that Griffonia Seed raises serotonin levels in the brain.

Stinging nettles

They're kind of a miracle of nature. And this comes from being curious and from actually picking things and eating them and then reading about them. But stinging nettles actually are filled with serotonin and they are the first green to come up after a long, gray winter.

Other herbs and plants that can help raising serotonin levels are: oats, popcorn, roots of angelica, burdock, dandelion, anise, fenugreek, garlic and ginger.
er yes but read the following !!! :

Premature Ejaculation

Gabe Mirkin, M.D.

Do you want to be able to make love longer? A study from the University of Koln in Germany shows that premature ejaculation is in the eye of the beholder. Men who came to a urology clinic with a chief complaint of premature ejaculation had the same time to ejaculation as normal men who had no such complaint.

All the men in the study were married for at least two years and made love regularly. They were asked to use a stop watch to measure their time to ejaculation and to keep diaries. The premature ejaculators went from start of intercourse to ejaculation in an average period of 2:32 minutes. The healthy volunteers had an average time of 3:01 minutes. The differences were not statistically significant.

This study shows that premature ejaculation is not defined by how many strokes or how much time it takes to ejaculate. It is defined by whether a person is satisfied with his time to climax. 20 mg of the antidepressant drug Paxil, taken 1 hour before lovemaking, can delay ejaculation to more than 8 minutes, but it still won't help most premature ejaculators because their early finish is not the problem. This study shows that premature ejaculators have a terrible misunderstanding of human physiology. They think that they are inadequate because their female partners do not come to climax with conventional penile-vaginal lovemaking.

The vast majority of women do not climax from conventional lovemaking. Many young girls can climax quickly, but as most women age, they can climax only when their clitoris is stimulated vigorously. On the basis of this study, premature ejaculation should be defined as occurring primarily in men who do not understand female anatomy, and the treatment for most cases of premature ejaculation should be for a woman to explain her own physiology to him and tell how what to do.

Premature Ejaculation, also known to health care experts as “Ejaculatio Praecox”, is probably the single most common sexual dysfunction in men. Statistics show that as much as 30 percent of men complain of premature ejaculation in most sexual encounters. Sex therapists define premature ejaculation as a lack of ejaculatory control, which interferes with sexual or emotional well being in one or both partners.

Before the arrival of viagra in the pharmaceutical market, people were thoroughly scared of male erectile dysfunction as no effective treatment of the disorder was available at that time. However, as soon as the medicine was released in the market, it unleashed a revolutionary change in the lives of men by rescuing millions of men from the grip of erectile dysfunction.

The chances of contracting erectile dysfunction goes up substantially with age, increasing significantly above the age of sixty-five-which is rapidly approaching for the baby boomers. Although erectile dysfunction becomes more likely with advancing age, there is certainly no age cutoff for a sexually fulfilling life. Some men enjoy sexual activity even in their eighties and nineties.

Generic Viagra
Thanks for the great blog . I really enjoyed reading, I am a 54 year old man and I had problems of erectile dysfunction but it already was a stage closed in my life I find the solution Generic Viagra Soft Tabs is a new product that is used to treat sexual impotence in men. These soft tabs are based on the same active ingredient as other erectile dysfunction pills: sildenafil citrate. Therefore, patients will experience the same results and satisfaction as with any other brand name. The desired effects should start appearing shortly after the tablet is dissolved under the tongue.
Generic Viagra Soft Tabs is also a Cipla product. This pharmaceutical company is famous for providing top quality medications after 70 years of experience.

The Easy way to prevent premature ejaculation

It's true that serotonin and dopamine affect ejaculation time. These in turn are controlled by hormones.

In order to beat premature ejaculation it's necessary to learn about hormone control. A review I read recently told me this.

All the best..
