Premature Ejaculation - Caused by Stress

How is stress linked to the body and just how can it be responsible for sexual dysfunctions like premature ejaculation? You might be surprised how much stress is running through your daily life. Stress is more than just the worry you have concerning work or school. Stress can be a result of all the surprises, joys, sorrows and pains that you experience.

However, stress is more than just a byproduct of mental and emotional dilemmas you experience. It too contributes to physical wear and tear.

Basically, stress is all the "ups and downs" in your life, and it's a hidden cause for your Premature Ejaculation.

Occasionally, a stressing event may push you past what you may be equipped to handle, causing sleeplessness due to worry or anticipation of something you’re looking forward to. The emotions caused by a relationship breakup or the death of a loved one can be extremely overwhelming.

Body Responses Under Stress

But sometimes, constant, everyday stressors can buildup and affect your body the same way a single profound event can. Problems with work, relationships, and personal issues can chip away at you until you break. Stress can trigger a series of changes in brain chemistry through a collection of stress hormones. These stress hormones (norepinephrine, cortisol, etc) alarm our endocrine and nervous system, which put the entire body in anxiety mode that can weaken the ejaculation reflex arc.

In fact, researchers studying the uncontrollable premature ejaculation from opiate withdrawal syndrome have the similar neuro-physiology effects of premature ejaculation caused by stress and anxiety.[1]

How Does Stress Affect the Body?

Most of the time, our bodies are able to handle the routine stressors of life. Missed the bus? No problem, I’ll walk. Deadline coming up? I’ll focus and concentrate. Our bodies were designed to meet these challenges by stimulating the sympathetic nerves, which would lead to:

  • Increasing heart rate to circulate more blood, hormones and chemicals for concentration and thinking
  • Stimulating the body to produce more blood sugar and adrenalin thus providing more energy
  • Diverting blood from less vital areas (such as the digestion system and genitals) to arms and legs for strength, and an increase of breathing to provide more oxygen to the body

Stress will cause a decreased enjoyment of pleasure during sex, increased sensitivity to pain and stimulation, heightened impotence and premature ejaculation issues.

Physiological Reaction from Stress and P.E.

Stress and stress-related anxiety induce all these problems by stimulating the sympathetic nerves and creating an imbalance of chemicals and hormones. The sympathetic nerves are responsible for a man’s urge to ejaculate.

Normally, this impulse is low and needs to be built up through sensory and mental stimulation until the orgasm is reached. In cases of stress, the sympathetic nerves have already been excited and overworked. Men will begin sex with a very strong impulse to ejaculate and of course climax far too soon.

Peace of Mind

It's easy for most people to shout out "chill" or "calm down man" to eliminate stress. There are many natural ways to reduce stress, such as meditation, massage and reflexology. But only herbs (for less severe) such as Passion FlowerOs Draconis, or Damina and herbal remedies (more severe) can reduce stress to restore ejaculation control.
