Sensitive Penis and Premature Ejaculation

Patient: I have a huge problem with premature ejaculation. I’ve noticed that I have an oversensitive penis and (in my opinion the bigger problem) when I was younger I masturbated very quickly and not I feel my penis is “structured” to ejaculate very quickly. Some of my past problems have been ejaculating within 5 or 10 seconds of oral sex and under a minute of masturbating. Also, when me and a girl were getting kind of physical, I came in my pants which she didn’t find out but it enormously embarrassing. I am 18 years old and would love any insight you could give me on the issue. Is there any regimen that I could do to eventually solve this problem. I am not opposed to long term treatment, quite frankly, I’d prefer it. Thanks for anything you could tell me!
