Premature ejaculation refers to uncontrolled ejaculation which happens either before or very soon after sexual penetration. Usually, it happens with minimal stimulation and occurs before the sufferer wishes. It’s one of the most common forms of male sexual dysfunction, and every man will probably experience it at some point during their lives.
Experiencing premature ejaculation can lead to sexual dissatisfaction in both partners and heightened levels of anxiety, which can often make the problem even worse. There is no one cause, but it is suspected that it’s more likely to occur under certain conditions, such as the first time with a new partner, if it has been some time since the man last ejaculated or if the man is experiencing feelings of anxiety, depression or guilt. It usually gets better over time.
