Can electrical stimulation cure premature ejaculation? | Digital Trends Spanish

It is estimated that between 30 and 40 percent of men will experience premature ejaculation at some point in their life. Therefore, it is a common problem that has motivated a series of investigations in recent years.

Now, a study published in the Asian Journal of Urology claims to have found a cure for premature ejaculation. The results of the investigation claim to have extended the “time to completion” of a patient who had this problem by more than eight times.

So far so good, the problem is that the procedure can be uncomfortable and even painful, since it consists of stimulating the penis with electricity for 30 minutes per session, several times a week for 24 weeks. The treatment was led by researchers from Lebanon, who used a technique that requires two surface electrodes attached to the base and body of the penis to stimulate the dorsal nerve of the penis for a series of 24 weeks.

The study subject was a man who was in an active relationship, but had an average ejaculation time of 0.6 minutes. The individual received penile nerve stimulation with the electrodes for three 30-minute sessions per week. After the tests, the man had an increase of more than eight times from the beginning and his duration time before ejaculation was 4.9 minutes.

This occurred at week 60, meaning that the subject’s average time continued to increase even after the experiments ended.

With these results, scientists believe they are facing a non-invasive stimulation method that could become a good alternative to current treatments for those who suffer from premature ejaculation for life.
