I have had severe PE all of my life. I am 36 years old. I can not last longer than one minute. I have been married for 13 years and want to do better for my wife. I am going to get my annual physical in three weeks and need some advice as to how to approach my doctor. I would like to get on Zoloft or another SSRI drug to see if that would help. I am willing to do anything at this point. Please provide me some feedback if you are taking a SSRI for PE. And how receptive was your doctor at prescribing a drug for PE.
Seeing how this is the men's sexual health board, I don't know if your just looking for a male to reply or not, but I'll give it a shot.
In my opinion, there's better ways of taking care of PE than SSRI's. You don't want to go that route, trust me. I was on Prozac for eight years, and have been off it for going on three months now and I'm still waiting for my sex drive to come back. Also, my husband was on Zoloft for a short time (2 weeks) and he had an extremely difficult time trying to orgasm. Not comfortable for me at all. Have you tried using condoms to dull the sensation? It works for my husband. Also, do you masturbate? How often?

The condom thing does not work for me. I'm at a point in my life that I think I could benefit from Zoloft or others and benefit from the side effect. My wife has put up with my PE for 13 years and I bet she would welcome me having a difficult time reaching climax.
Paul this is simple but try a men's desensitizing cream, or delay cream. I used it once or twice years ago and it works. It just deadens the nerves in your penis for a little while. I still got hard and aroused and had sex. The feeeling comes back slowly until full sensation has returned and you can climax. I would imagine by the time you apply the cream, have sex for a while, then regain feeling, you will have lasted 15 or more minutes. It worked for me.
