How does Priligy work?

Priligy contains the active ingredient Dapoxetine. Dapoxetine is a type of medication known as an SSRI. SSRI stands for selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor. Serotonin is a chemical involved in signalling in the nervous system. It has many different purposes but is also involved in ejaculation. As an SSRI, Priligy reduces how much serotonin goes back into the nerves, which helps to prolong the length of time before ejaculation.

Different Types of Premature Ejaculation

There are two types of premature ejaculation. There are two types of premature ejaculation. The first type primarily affects middle-aged men. Prostate disease, depression, anxiety and other health factors can lead to premature ejaculation. The other type of PE begins when a man first becomes sexually active. Anxiety or excitement can lead these early sexual interactions to result in premature ejaculation, which the body then adjusts to, meaning that it is more likely to happen again.

Treatment Options for Premature Ejaculation

Depending upon the cause of your premature ejaculation, various treatments may be most effective. If the cause of your PE is primarily psychological, counselling, psychological therapies or sex therapy may be the best treatment. However, Priligy and EMLA cream may be useful to help you delay ejaculation whatever the course. EMLA cream is a numbing cream that you apply to the penis directly, to temporarily reduce the sensation you can feel through the skin. Priligy is a pill that works chemically to prolong the time it takes for you to ejaculate.
