Sexual Dysfunction ?

I am a male in in my early 50's. I am having problems with premature ejaculation and output that is concerning me.
I am happily married and only have sex with my wife. When I am having intercourse I just get so excited I ejaculate rather quickly. I also seem to get extremely turned on if she gives me a handjob and come really quick. I also do not ejaculate very much anymore. When I was in my 20's and 30's I would ejaculate a whole bunch (5 or 6 large squirts) but now I'm lucky to get 2 squirts of a mild proportion. Sometimes is just drips out with no squirting. This has been going on for 8 years with her now and so it started at about 44 yrs old. I used to smoke but have recently quit. I was always excited when I was younger but could last for about 45 minutes. Now I'm lucky to go for 2-3min. Is this normal for my age or what? She always say's it's ok and I help her out in other ways but it makes me feel bad that I cannot seem to perform normally. I do jerk myself off daily cause it helps me relax. Is this depleting my load when I am with her? I'm embarrassed even asking this but I just feel so guilty lately.

Hello Michael,

Welcome to EmpowHER. Thank you for reaching out to our community with your concern.

Consider scheduling an appointment with either a urologist or your primary care physician.

Premature ejaculation is a common sexual complaint. Estimates vary, but as many as 1 out of 3 men say they experience this problem at some time. Both psychological and biological factors can play a role in premature ejaculation. Although many men feel embarrassed talking about it, premature ejaculation is a common and treatable condition. Medications, counseling and sexual techniques that delay ejaculation or a combination of these can help improve sex for you and your partner.
