Premature ejaculation is generally regarded as one of the most common male sexual dysfunctions. It (PE) is defined as ejaculation before the completion of satisfactory sexual activity or with minimal sexual stimulation for both partners. In severe cases, it is characterized by ejaculation either before penetration or soon after that. PE affects as many as 1 out of 3 men, and can lead to frustration and anxiety.
The cause of PE could be temporary depression, stress, anxiety, a history of sexual repression, or a lack of emotional bonding between the partners. Physical disease can also be the reason, such as a swollen prostate gland (prostatitis), diabetes, sexually transmitted diseases, or cardiovascular disease.
'Shukragatavata' is a distinct pathological entity of Ayurveda characterized by a group of clinical presentations related to either ejaculation damage or seminal damage which is very much similar to premature ejaculation.
According to Ayurvedic perspective, premature ejaculation is caused by aggravation of vata (air) and pitta dosha at the commencement of physical mating. These doshas can be aggravated by anxiety or nervousness before the sexual act.
Just as purified butter melts in the presence of heat, semen loses its consistency when there is pitta (fire) aggravation in the body. Aggravated pitta along with vata which provides quick ejaculation, travels into the channels carrying semen, causing semen to decrease in consistency, and thus it gets ejaculated before sufficient erection.
Ayurveda has attached importance to sukra (sperm / reproductive system) as the superior tissue of the body due to its generative property. Vajeekarana is a branch of Ayurveda that deals with various types of physical, psychological, sexual problems such as impotence, libido, bad erection and early ejaculation in men, as well as sterility and frigidity in women and these medicines are useful for providing strength and vigor to the person along with improving reproductive potential.
