Patient Success Stories
I used to have good control. Now, over the last few years, things have gradually become worse and I have almost lost all control. I used to really enjoy my sex life and so did my wife, Evelyn. We have been married for over 30 years, and our great sex life was one of the reasons we lasted for so long.
I never really knew that I had a problem and I am still not sure if I do he explained. I’ve had only one girlfriend before now – Janet—and she never complained. I was her first partner, and we would make love once or twice a week purely by my initiation. In fact, this was the reason we broke up.
Shortly after, I met Donna, who I am with now. The first time we made love I was nervous and it was all over very quickly. She was very understanding and although a little disappointed, she gave me the impression that we just needed to get used to each other. Unfortunately, this happened consistently over the next few weeks, and I could sense her frustration.
We spoke about the problem, and I told her that I had never been able to go for more than five minutes. We did not call it premature ejaculation, but looking back I guess there was no other word for it. I simply could not control my ejaculation, and although some love-making sessions lasted longer than others, the problem has been with me from the first time that I made love.
Donna was very open-minded, and we tried to treat the problem using various products that we bought from sex shops and on-line. We tried sprays and numbing creams, rubber rings and even a few techniques that Donna had read about. Although all of these seemed to initially help, I never was able to gain control, and I sensed that Donna was starting to lose patience with me.
I have no trouble getting an erection but I feared the PE problem could affect my relationship. I really wish I could enjoy love making a little more, and, more importantly, I really like Donna and I want this relationship to work.
