This can be described in simple terms as the inability to control ejaculation for sufficient duration to permit both partners to enjoy sexual intercourse.
It can be divided into 2 broad forms:
- Primary premature ejaculation
- Secondary Premature ejaculation
In Primary premature ejaculation, symptoms are more or less for life and ejaculation can occur at times even before penetration or within 1-2 minutes of penetration.
In secondary premature ejaculation, patient may have experienced normal ejaculation in the past and usually this does not occur as fast as in the primary condition.
Certain conditions and recreational drug use may contribute to PE including generalised anxiety – this is common in young men and also occurs early on in new relationships.
Some Neurologic conditions like Multiple Sclerosis (MS) may cause this.
Some recreational drugs including Cocaine, amphetamines and certain dopaminergic drugs including certain drugs used to treat Parkinsons may result in PE.
Other drugs including Sildenafil used in the treatment of erectile dysfunction may cause PE in some patients.
Some general advice on managing this condition includes:
- Frequent or regular sex and or regular masturbation.
- Use of condom to decrease some of the sensation.
- Sex with the woman on top has also been suggested.
- Squeeze and stop-go technique.
