Some people see results immediately while some have to try for different options and combination therapy.

What are the non-prescription options for treating premature ejaculation?
Your physician may recommend a combination of medication and behavioral therapy tips to deal with premature ejaculation. It may take some time and experimentation to find the methods that work best. Some men experience significant improvement with learned techniques so medication isn’t for everyone.
Some recommended techniques include:
Topical Anesthetics: Anesthetic creams and sprays that contain numbing agents are used to treat premature ejaculation and are available over-the-counter. These are applied to the penis 10 to 15 minutes before sex. The advantage of topical applications is that the side effect rate is low and they are effective to some degree in almost everyone to decrease sensation and prolong the time before ejaculation.
Condoms: Condoms might decrease penis sensitivity, which can help delay ejaculation. They have the added benefit of reducing the likelihood of transmission of sexually transmitted infection or unwanted pregnancy. Using a spray or cream with a condom is effective for some men. It delays orgasm and when used with a topical anesthetic prevents the spread of the anesthetic to a partner.
Behavioral techniques: The squeeze and start-stop techniques are 2 different strategies that can be practiced during masturbation or sexual activity and, over time, can improve control over the timing of ejaculation.
Counseling: Counseling, this involves talking with the mental health provider/psychologist about your relationships and experiences. This can be done in person or over a call. It helps in reducing the performance anxiety and finding a better way to cope with the increased stress. It also help in restoring man’s worth beyond his ability to delay orgasm which often restores their capacity to experience sex as they had before premature ejaculation developed.
Combination Therapy: Any of the above treatments can be combined with any one or more of the other treatments. Although it’s often best to keep things simple, combination therapy can help treat men who don’t respond to single therapy.
