I’ve had issues with premature ejaculation since I became sexually active at 18. Growing up I was raised in a religious household where sex was seen as taboo so i inadvertently taught myself to masturbate and finish within seconds! I didn’t realise the long term harm it was doing and now at 25 with a girlfriend of 2 years i still have the same issues. I went on SSRIs for a year which helped initially but when i got off them it came back but with erection issues to add. Im at a loss as to what to do. From my initial premature ejaculation issue I now have problems getting it up.
I believe my issue is physiological as its logical to assume my masturbation technique growing up caused the initial problem but how to do I reverse it? I really need help to fix this. I cant go my whole life with sexual issues. My girlfriend is understanding but i feel less of a man in myself.
In any sexual encounter I’m worried about ejaculating too soon. Any tips/advice would be greatly appreciated.
