Approximately 1/3 men experience premature ejaculation resulting in an unpleasant sexual experience. Studies show that by reducing sensitivity, men are able to last 7-8x longer. But don’t worry, you can still enjoy the sensation without the increased sensitivity.
How do I use Lidocaine?
Apply the ointment to the tip of your penis 15-30 minutes prior to intercourse. Once applied, wash your hands thoroughly to prevent numbing other unwanted parts of your body once applied. Make sure to wipe any excess ointment to prevent your partner from getting numb prior to intercourse.
Lidocaine numbing ointment is safe and well tolerated by most, but some people may experience temporary loss of sensitivity that can lead to difficulty getting an erection. Temporary redness, stinging, and a little bit of swelling may occur at the application site.
What is premature ejaculation?
Premature Ejaculation (PE) is a form of sexual dysfunction defined as the act of ejaculating before you’re ready. That can be during foreplay, soon after penetration or in the middle of intercourse. The point is, it’s happening too soon.
Is Lidocaine safe?
Yes, studies show that Lidocaine is both safe and well tolerated by most people as an agent for PE. However, if you have a Lidocaine allergy, this product will not be appropriate and you should consult a doctor or pharmacist about other possible options.
How long does Lidocaine last?
The effects of the Lidocaine Numbing Cream should wear-off after 90 minutes, but can last anywhere between 1-3 hours.
Can I use Lidocaine with lube?
Yes, if you apply the Lidocaine first, but be sure to use a lubricant that doesn’t also have a numbing agent like Lidocaine within its ingredients.
Can I use Lidocaine with my ED meds?
Yes, Lidocaine Numbing Cream and ED medications such as Sildenafil or Tadalafil do not interact and can be used together. In fact, ED medications are actually a treatment option for PE and can be considered first line.
Is it safe to have oral sex with Lidocaine?
Yes, it is considered safe to have oral sex with Lidocaine as long as you follow the instructions on how to apply it, wait the allocated time for it to properly absorb, and as long as your partner doesn’t have a Lidocaine allergy. You can rinse your penis after 30 minutes of application to ensure there is no leftover ointment on the surface prior to sexual intercourse.
Does Lidocaine have side effects?
Some people may experience temporary loss of sensitivity that can lead to ED and others may experience skin irritation. This can be avoided if you apply a small amount when you start using it, then increase the amount based on toleration and need. If you start experiencing serious side effects like discoloration on the skin, lips or nail beds, changes in breathing, fatigue, confusion, headache or light headedness, seek immediate medical attention.
Is Lidocaine my only option for PE?
No, depending on the type of PE, there are medications, sexual techniques and behavioral therapies you can try. Talk to your doctor or pharmacist if you have questions about your options.
