Premature Ejaculation - Caused by Thyroid Hormone Disorder

Hyperthyroidism, a condition caused by an overproduction of thyroid hormones, elevates hormone levels in the blood. An overactive thyroid gland produces excessive hormones, which deactivates the rest of your endocrine system – including your hypothalamus, pituitary and your testes

It's been estimated that 72 percent of men suffering from hyperthyrodism experience premature ejaculation.[1] In fact, many men with hyperthyroid problems have difficulty maintaining erections and have suffered from premature ejaculation problems before. An overactive thyroid gland produces excessive hormones, which deactivate your hypothalamus and pituitary. This means that your DHEA and testosterone production will slowdown, thus creating a sure recipe for premature ejaculation and general dissatisfaction with sex all together.

My Thyroid Said What?
When you’re dealing with a case of hyperthyroidism, many words will be used to describe the dysfunction and its main contributors. Most of these terms will be unfamiliar to you, but one important word you’ll need to know is acetylcholine. Researchers have found that dramatic increases of thyroid hormones can indirectly inhibit the action and production of acetylcholine.[2]

Acetylcholine is essential for the parasympathetic nervous system (the middle man between the brain and penis). The chemical allows your brain to exert ejaculatory control over penile stimuation, allowing you to tighten the prostate emission valve. Natural formulas can help you maintain the balance production of thyroid hormones.

Check List to Combat Hyperthyroidism
If you suffer from sexual dysfunction, you first need to be sure that your thyroid is being fully treated.
  • Optimal Thyroid Drug Treatment
    Some people don’t recover from sexual dysfunctions caused by hyperthyroidism from over-the-counter drugs. In some cases, the body might react poorly to certain medications and the problem may worsen. Usually a doctor will switch the patient over to a drug containing triiodothyronine (T3), such as Thyrolar or a natural thyroid drug like Armour that includes natural forms of T4 and T3. For some people this will help their libido return. Others do well with the addition of Cytomel (synthetic T3) or time-released T3 to levothyroxine.

    Either way, these pharmaceutical drugs are not a cure for hyperthyroidism or the sexual dysfunctions caused by it. They merely strap a band-aid to the symptoms, but they do not actually solve the problem.
  • Check Your Hormones
    Whenever a man notices a reduction in his sex drive or the appearance of a sexual problem, he should have his testosterone, DHEA and androgen levels checked.
  • Have a Thorough Physical
    Keep in mind that a low sex drive and other sexual dysfunctions may be a result of other non-thyroid health conditions. Diabetes and hypertension (high blood pressure) can cause waning libido in both women and men. Antidepressants, tranquilizers and antihypertensives - as well as many illegal drugs such as cocaine and marijuana - can reduce sex drive and cause sexual side effects.
  • Take Herbal Supplements to Control Thyroid Hormones and Premature Ejaculation
    Natural Solution for Rapid Ejaculation with Thyroid Hormone Disorder lists out powerful herbs that are beneficial for both hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism. For example, Motherwort, Kelp, Irish Moss, Mucuna Pruriens, Os Draconis and Passion Flower, when  integrated together, calm the hyper-sensitive parasympathetic ejaculatory nerves caused by an over production of thyroid hormones. 
  • Get Testosterone Supplementation if Needed
    Hyperthyroidism causes a low production of testosterone for men. This low testosterone level can cause sexual problems, but too much testosterone can cause similar problems as well. This is why many men who turn to testosterone supplements find they have trouble restoring lost libidos.

    There are many ways to boost up your testosterone level naturally without taking drugs, patches or injections. Many foods such as oysters can increase testosterone production. Potent herbs such as Sarsaparilla Jamaican, Schisandra Berry, Eurycoma Longifolia, Tribulus Terrestis and Deer Antler can increase or prevent the breakdown of testosterone.
