What is premature ejaculation?
Premature ejaculation is when ejaculation occurs earlier than desired, often within 1 minute of penetrative sex. It’s characterized by an inability to delay orgasm to the extent that it causes bother or frustration to the patient and/or their partner.
There are many possible causes of PE, ranging from physical causes to psychological causes. One of the problems with diagnosing and treating PE is that, until recently, there has not been agreement on its definition, and there’s no set “time to ejaculation” that defines PE.
If you feel you ejaculate too quickly during sex, treatment may be appropriate for you.
