Delayed Ejaculation: Could Anandamide Help?

Delayed Ejaculation: Could Anandamide Help?Like its premature counterpart, delayed ejaculation (sometimes called retarded ejaculation) can be very frustrating for men. Causes may be difficult to pinpoint and relationships can start to weaken, especially if a couple would like to conceive a child. However, a new animal study out of Mexico suggests that the neurotransmitter anandamide might help.

Men with delayed ejaculation usually get firm erections, enjoy sexual stimulation, and truly desire the sexual release that ejaculation brings. But for many men, that moment doesn’t arrive when they want it to. For others, it doesn’t arrive at all.

Partners can be troubled by delayed ejaculation as well, thinking that they are not exciting enough to bring the man to orgasm. Partners may blame themselves or fear that the man is seeing someone else, someone who can fulfill his needs.

But that is usually not the case. A number of factors can interfere with a man’s ability to ejaculate. He may be experiencing sexual side effects from antidepressants or blood pressure medications. He may be drinking too much or using illicit drugs. Neurological conditions like multiple sclerosis could be damaging the nerve pathways needed for ejaculation.
