What is premature ejaculation?

Premature ejaculation (PE) is the term that refers to achieving orgasm with minimal stimulation. This means that orgasm occurs too soon after intercourse has started. Sometimes ejaculation happens before penetration is achieved. PE can cause sufferers and their partners distress, and it can lead to men avoiding sex because they feel embarrassed about their condition.

Occasional instances of PE are common and they are nothing to worry about. However, if this problem persists and you find that around half of your attempts to have intercourse end in premature orgasm, you may want to seek treatment.

What causes it?

The causes of PE vary and in many cases, they are difficult to identify. Performance anxiety, elevated penile sensitivity, having too little sex and even genetic predispositions are all possible triggers. Medical issues such as hypothyroidism and prostate problems may also put men at an increased risk of this condition. PE can improve as sexual experience grows, but this is not always the case.

It is important to be aware that there is no set rule about how long sex should last. Research has shown that the average time between penetration and ejaculation is around five-and-a-half minutes. However, it is often much shorter than this. As long as you and your partner are happy with how long you last, there is no need to look for treatments. It is only worth seeking help if you are not satisfied with your sexual performance.

There are a number of approved and tested treatments available for PE. For example, medications containing dapoxetine are designed to delay ejaculation by inhibiting the serotonin transporter. At Europa, we offer the dapoxetine treatment Priligy. This is taken in tablet form and, by delaying the chemical reactions that lead to ejaculation, it can increase the time between getting an erection and reaching orgasm. It has been shown to have positive effects in eight in 10 patients.

We also provide EMLA cream. This medication is applied to the penis in order to numb the nerve endings and delay ejaculation. A local anaesthetic, it reduces the level of stimulation felt at the head of the penis during intercourse.
