Erectile Dysfunction and Premature Ejaculation

Millions of men at all ages experience problems with erectile dysfunction (ED) and/or premature ejaculation. Sadly, many men do not get help because they are reluctant to talk about their sexual concerns due to feelings of shame. A first step to your recovery is realizing that there is no shame in wanting a better, more satisfying love life. The next step is to seek help and talk honestly about your concerns.

Sexual problems can result from many factors, including health problems and medical treatments (medications, radiation, surgery), as well as psycho-social factors (stress, relationship conflicts, communication problems, anxiety, and depression). Psycho-social factors are likely to contribute to the problem regardless of whether there are medical factors.

Erectile dysfunction (ED)
ED is difficulty getting an erect penis or staying hard during lovemaking. This is a common problem. Even if you have had prostate treatment (including radiation, chemo, and/or surgery) or have other medical conditions, there are many resources that can help you resume satisfying sex.

Recovery of satisfying sex requires a holistic approach that treats the whole person—body, mind, and spirit—within the context of their relationships. Life coaching or counseling can address the psycho-social factors by providing relevant facts about optimal sexual functioning and by teaching specific communication skills, mindfulness skills, and exercises to restore sexual health. When the cause of ED is primarily medical, there are many effective treatments available, including medications, injections, vacuum devices, and surgical implants.
Premature ejaculation
Premature ejaculation is climaxing too soon. Anxiety is often a major factor.

Life coaching can teach you mindfulness skills that will help you to reduce anxiety by quieting your mind and being more present during sex. These skills will also help you to deepen intimacy with your partner. Additionally, you can learn specific exercises that will enable you to extend sexual pleasure before ejaculation.
