What causes premature ejaculation?
Although it’s not always possible to figure out why a man experiences premature ejaculation, the latest medical studies point to two things: higher-than-normal penis sensitivity and reduced levels of serotonin (a naturally produced chemical that helps with nerve connectivity in the brain). Other things that can cause premature ejaculation or make it worse include stress, anxiety and medical side-effects. No matter what the cause, it’s usually treatable, often with an over-the-counter solution.
Is premature ejaculation a mental disorder?
For a long time, experts thought premature ejaculation was a mental problem – that it was “all your head,” but that’s not what experts believe now. Today, experts know more about penis sensitivity and serotonin levels, and how these factors and others can cause premature ejaculation.
How common is premature ejaculation?
Premature ejaculation is extremely common. In fact, as many as one out of three men have experienced premature ejaculation at some time. It’s easily the most common male sexual problem, and it affects men of all ages and races.
Is premature ejaculation the same as erectile dysfunction?
Erectile dysfunction is when a man has trouble achieving an erection. With premature ejaculation, the man can get an erection but he ejaculates sooner than intended.
Does premature ejaculation start at puberty or can it happen later?
Both are possible. If a man has always experienced premature ejaculation during sex, it’s called “lifelong premature ejaculation.” If the condition begins later in life, it’s called “acquired premature ejaculation.” Both can be helped with PREBOOST wipes.
When should I see my doctor?
It’s a good idea to see your doctor if there has been a persistent change in your sexual function, whether that change is related to premature ejaculation, erectile dysfunction, pain with ejaculation, or a severe delay or inability to experience orgasm. There may be medical conditions that can be effectively treated.
