How Common is Premature Ejaculation?

Premature ejaculation is a common sexual complaint. Estimates vary, but as many as 1 out of 3 men say they experience this problem at some time.

For most men, this is not a frequent issue. However, some report that this happens more often and there is help.

There is no set time when a man should ejaculate during sex, but if you ejaculate and lose your erection soon, you and your partner may feel there’s not enough time to enjoy it.

Urologists are trained to help men with premature ejaculation and can help get you the answers you need.

What are the Symptoms of Premature Ejaculation?

You might be diagnosed with premature ejaculation if you:

  • Always or nearly always ejaculate within one minute of penetration
  • Are unable to delay ejaculation during intercourse all or nearly all of the time
  • Feel distressed and frustrated, and tend to avoid sexual intimacy as a result
  • Have concern over your sexual performance
  • Experience unusual hormone levels or chemical levels in your brain
  • Suffer from inflammation or an infection in your prostate or urethra (the tube that runs from your bladder and sends pee out of the body)
  • Have been diagnosed with erectile dysfunction and anxious may rush to ejaculate
  • Have weak pelvic floor muscles
  • Have a family history of premature ejaculation or inherited traits

Two Types of Premature Ejaculation

Premature ejaculation can be classified as:

  1. Lifelong (primary). Lifelong premature ejaculation occurs all or nearly all of the time beginning with your first sexual encounters.
  2. Acquired (secondary). Acquired premature ejaculation develops after you’ve had previous sexual experiences without ejaculatory problems.

How Can This Be Treated?

Premature ejaculation can be treated in three main ways:

Psychological Therapy

This would include recommendations such as:

  • Mental health counseling to reduce anxiety
  • Sex counseling with your partner to discuss issues
  • Learn the source of problems
  • Help lessen nervousness around sex
  • Improve sexual confidence
  • Stress-reducing activities

Behavioral Therapy

There are several techniques your urologist may recommend to help prolong ejaculation such as:

  • Exercises to help build a tolerance to delay ejaculation
  • Squeezing the penis when you are close to ejaculating to delay climax
  • Stopping during sex before you climax and then start up again after the feeling passes
  • Using condoms to reduce sensation during sex

Medical Therapy

Although there are no drugs approved for premature ejaculation, there are other medical remedies including:

  • Numbing cream or spray applied before sex to reduce sensation
  • Regulating or using anti-depressants to help with PE and serotonin levels
  • Certain pain medications have reported delayed ejaculation
  • Some medications for erectile dysfunction may be recommended as well
