Premature Ejaculation (PE)

Pre­ma­ture ejac­u­la­tion (PE) is when a man has an orgasm soon­er dur­ing inter­course than he or his part­ner wish­es. PE is com­mon – affect­ing about one in five men ages 18 to 59 and may be due to both phys­i­cal and psy­cho­log­i­cal fac­tors including:

  • Low sero­tonin levels 
  • Tem­po­rary depres­sion or peri­ods of stress
  • Unre­al­is­tic expec­ta­tions about performance
  • Lack of confidence

Treat­ment options may include oral med­ica­tions and/​or behav­ioral ther­a­py to help build your tol­er­ance to stim­u­la­tion and delay ejaculation.
