Premature Ejaculation (PE)

What is PE?

Premature Ejaculation (PE) is a condition which affects sexually active men whereby the male reaches orgasm and ejaculates sooner than expected. Although there is no set time for ejaculation to occur, usually ejaculation within 2 minutes of starting intercourse is a good guide. This obviously effects both sexual partners as the experience can be less enjoyable leading to anxiety and stress for both partners.

Premature Ejaculation treatments

The cause of PE is not known as the condition is often self-defined by the individual affected. One cause can be low levels of the chemical serotonin in the brain. For men affected, stress, anxiety and depression can make the condition worse which is often the case then experiencing this condition. Men often experience lack of confidence, relationship problems and negative feelings about sex further aggravating the condition. Other causes include abnormal hormone levels, conditions of the prostate, bladder, infections and conditions of the penis such as Erectile dysfunction.
Due to the variety of causes, the treatment options relate to determining to the cause of the condition so this can be treated first. PE can often be treated by treating underlying conditions such as anxiety, stress, infections or Erectile dysfunction.

If other causes are ruled out, ED can be treated by taking a drug called Dapoxetine (Priligy) which increases the amount of serotonin in the brain for a short time delaying ejaculation. Priligy is usually taken between 1-3 hours prior to sexual intercourse.
