Premature Ejaculation

In men, Premature Ejaculation happens when sperm leaves the body (ejaculates) earlier than desired during intercourse. Premature ejaculation is a common sexual complaint.

Premature Ejaculation may be diagnosed if you

  • Always or nearly always ejaculate within 1 to 3 minutes of penetration
  • Are not able to delay ejaculation during sex all or nearly all the time
  • Feel distressed and frustrated, and tend to avoid sexual intimacy as a result Symptoms of Premature Ejaculation

Premature ejaculation is typically classified as either lifelong or acquired.

  • Lifelong (primary) PE indicates you've had this experience continuously or practically continuously since your first sexual encounter.
  • Acquired (secondary) PE occurs when you have had longer-lasting ejaculations but have developed PE.

Primary or lifelong PE, the most chronic form of PE, is defined medically by the presence of the following features:

  • Ejaculation invariably, or nearly always, occurs before sexual penetration, or within a minute of penetration.
  • There is an inability to delay ejaculation every time, or nearly every time, penetration occurs.
  • Negative personal repercussions such as distress and frustration, as well as avoidance of sexual intimacy, occur.

Physical ejaculatory events come first, followed by psychological symptoms. Secondary symptoms include:

  • Diminished relationship confidence
  • Interpersonal difficulty
  • Mental distress
  • Anxiety
  • Embarrassment
  • Depression Diagnosis

There is no diagnostic test for premature ejaculation. Your doctor will inquire about your sexual history as well as the circumstances surrounding the premature ejaculation.


  • Some antidepressants seem to help delay ejaculation.
  • Medicines used to treat erectile dysfunction may also help prevent premature ejaculation.
  • Anesthetic creams can also be used to prevent premature ejaculation.
  • For some people, simply wearing a condom can help delay ejaculation because it may make the penis slightly less sensitive.
