What Is Premature Ejaculation?

Premature ejaculation is the term given when a man orgasms sooner than he (or his partner) would like. It is something that usually happens shortly after penetration, and most men with Premature Ejaculation (PE) regularly ejaculate before or within one minute of penetration.

Premature ejaculation can be an embarrassing occurrence, and it can also be frustrating too. It may hinder a man forming personal bonds with partners, and it can lead to anxiety and even social avoidance. For many men, it can damage their intimate (and otherwise healthy) relationships.

How Common Is Premature Ejaculation?

Premature ejaculation can affect men of all ages, however, men over 40 years old seem to suffer with it more regularly than those who are younger. It is estimated that approximately 30% – 40% of men have a problem with premature ejaculation at some point in their life. Primary premature ejaculation affects around 1 in 50 men in England.

What Are the Symptoms of Premature Ejaculation?

For most men, the only symptom is the premature ejaculation itself.

However, suffering from PE can also lead to anxiety or feelings of depression – which is why it’s so important to seek help from a professional before your personal life or mental health starts to suffer too.

What causes PE?

The causes of PE are generally split into two categories. Physical causes and psychological causes too.

Causes of premature ejaculation include:

Common physical causes of PE include:

  • Diabetes mellitus.

  • Prostate disease.

  • High blood pressure.

  • Hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid hormone).

  • Use of recreational drugs (i.e. cocaine, ecstasy).

  • Alcohol in excess.

suffer from peCommon psychological causes of PE include:

  • Stress.

  • Erectile dysfunction (i.e. being anxious to lose erection causing the man to ‘rush’ the intercourse).

  • Performance anxiety (i.e. start of a new sexual relationship, or when a man has had previous problems with PE or ED).

  • Depression.

  • Unresolved problems, conflicts or issues within a sexual and emotional relationship.

  • Strict upbringing where sexual activity is only considered appropriate in marriage and for procreation purpose only. One may find it difficult to relax during sex or be unable to let go of the belief that sex for pleasure is wrong or sinful.

  • Early sexual experience where a teenager conditions himself to ejaculate quickly to avoid being caught masturbating may later find it difficult to break the habit.

  • Previous traumatic sexual experiences.

Living with Premature Ejaculation

Living with PE can be difficult, but it’s important to remind yourself that it is a common problem that many men across the UK suffer from.

Where possible it’s important to talk about how the PE makes you feel and to be open and honest with your partner (and doctor) about the difficulties you’re having and look into ways of reducing anxiety, stress and worry surrounding it.

Seeking Professional Help for PE Treatment

The inability to control and delay ejaculation for as long as both partners desire is usually regarded as a severe disruption to quality of life and therefore requires professional intervention. PE can be very distressing and confidence-destroying – and over time it can damage intimacy and relationships. It can create extreme performance anxiety during sexual activity and therefore more frequent occurrences of PE in return.

Many men find it extremely difficult to come out of this vicious cycle without any professional help. Medication is sometimes necessary to break the cycle and to give back control of their sex lives. If left untreated, PE can cause feelings of shame, frustration, and lack of self-esteem. It may lead to a man avoiding sexual intimacy altogether.

Whilst seeking professional help can be intimidating for many men, it’s something that is important and also needed to successfully move past the issue. Medical professionals, doctors and practitioners will have treated other men with the same problem, so it is nothing to feel worried or embarrassed about.
