Premature Ejaculation

Premature ejaculation (PE) occurs when a man experiences orgasm and expels semen within a few moments of beginning sexual activity and with minimal stimulation. It is the most common ejaculation problem and whilst occasional episodes can happen, if a man begins to experience this for around half of the time during sexual intercourse it can begin to impact their emotional and sexual wellbeing. Although it may not be something they would like to discuss with their GP, it is advised to seek treatment to help improve the individual’s confidence and sexual relationships.

Causes of premature ejaculation

There are various psychological and physical factors that lead to a man suddenly experiencing premature ejaculation.

Common physical causes include:

  • prostate problems
  • thyroid problems – an overactive or underactive thyroid gland
  • using recreational drugs

Common psychological causes include:

  • depression
  • stress
  • relationship problems
  • anxiety about sexual performance (particularly at the start of a new relationship, or when a man has had previous problems with sexual performance)

Although less common, it is possible for a man to have experienced premature ejaculation since becoming sexually active.

Factors and causes for this include:

  • Conditioning –early sexual experiences could influence future sexual behaviour. For example, if a teenager conditions himself to ejaculate quickly to avoid being caught masturbating, it may later be difficult to break the habit
  • A traumatic sexual experience from childhood – this can range from being caught masturbating to sexual abuse
  • A strict upbringing and beliefs about sex
  • Biological reasons – some men may find their penis is extra sensitive

Treating premature ejaculation

There a few things you can try before seeking medical help that may help improve the situation.

These include:

  • Try masturbating for an hour or two before having sex
  • use a thick condom to help decrease sensation
  • take a deep breath to briefly shut down the ejaculatory reflex (an automatic reflex of the body during which ejaculation occurs)
  • have sex with your partner on top (to allow them to pull away when you are close to ejaculating)
  • take breaks during sex and think about something non- sexual to halt the activity
  • Couples therapy

If you are in a long-term relationship, you may benefit from having couples’ therapy. During these sessions, the therapist will:

  • encourage couples to explore any relationship issues they have, and give them advice about resolving them
  • show the couple techniques that can help you “unlearn” the habit of premature ejaculation (the two most popular techniques are the “squeeze” and “stop-go” techniques)

The squeeze technique involves your partner masturbating you but stopping before the point of ejaculation and squeezing the head of the penis for around 10-20 seconds. They then release and wait for another 30 seconds before resuming masturbating. This process is repeated several times before ejaculation is reached.

The stop-go technique involves a similar method only this time your partner does not squeeze the penis. Once you feel more confident about delaying the ejaculation, you and your partner can begin sexual intercourse, stopping and starting where required.

Whilst simple in principle, these techniques do require a lot of practice.

Antidepressants (SSRIs)

Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) are designed to treat depression, but they can also delay ejaculation. With SSRIs some men will experience an improvement as soon as treatment commences however it is usually within one or two weeks before the medication will take full effect.

Side effects of SSRIs are usually mild and should improve after two to three weeks.

Prilogy (Dapoxetine)

Priligy is an SSRI specifically used for the treatment of premature ejaculation and has now been licenced in the UK with local NHS authorities able to prescribe this on the NHS.

It can be used when required and your doctor will usually advise that it istaken between one and three hours before sex, but not more than once a day.

Please note that Dapoxetine is not suitable for all men who suffer with premature ejaculation for instance it is not advised for some men with heart, kidney or liver problems. It can also interfere with other medications such as antidepressants.

Premature Ejaculation

Ejaculation problems are common sexual problems in men.

If you have a problem with ejaculation, visit your GP, who will discuss the problem with you and may examine you or refer you to a specialist.

Premature ejaculation is the most common ejaculation problem. It’s where the male ejaculates too quickly during sexual intercourse.

A study looking at 500 couples from five different countries found the average time taken to ejaculate during intercourse was around five-and-a-half minutes. However, it’s up to each couple to decide if they’re happy with the time taken – there’s no definition of how long sex should last.

Occasional episodes of premature ejaculation are common and aren’t a cause for concern. However, if you’re finding that around half of your attempts at sex result in premature ejaculation, it might help to get treatment.

Causes of premature ejaculation Various psychological and physical factors can cause a man to suddenly experience premature ejaculation.

Common physical causes include:

prostate problems thyroid problems – an overactive or underactive thyroid gland using recreational drugs Common psychological causes include:

depression stress relationship problems anxiety about sexual performance (particularly at the start of a new relationship, or when a man has had previous problems with sexual performance) It’s possible, but less common, for a man to have always experienced premature ejaculation since becoming sexually active. A number of possible causes for this are:

Conditioning – it’s possible that early sexual experiences can influence future sexual behaviour. For example, if a teenager conditions himself to ejaculate quickly to avoid being caught masturbating, it may later be difficult to break the habit. A traumatic sexual experience from childhood – this can range from being caught masturbating to sexual abuse. A strict upbringing and beliefs about sex. Biological reasons – some men may find their penis is extra sensitive. Treating premature ejaculation There are a number of things you can try yourself before seeking medical help.

Measures you can try yourself It can sometimes help to:

masturbate an hour or two before having sex use a thick condom to help decrease sensation take a deep breath to briefly shut down the ejaculatory reflex (an automatic reflex of the body during which ejaculation occurs) have sex with your partner on top (to allow them to pull away when you are close to ejaculating) take breaks during sex and think about something boring Couples therapy If you’re in a long-term relationship, you may benefit from having couples therapy. During these sessions, the therapist will:

encourage couples to explore any relationship issues they have, and give them advice about resolving them show the couple techniques that can help you “unlearn” the habit of premature ejaculation (the two most popular techniques are the “squeeze” and “stop-go” techniques) In the squeeze technique, your partner masturbates you, but stops before the point of ejaculation and squeezes the head of your penis for between 10 to 20 seconds. They then let go and wait for another 30 seconds before resuming masturbation. This process is carried out several times before ejaculation is allowed to occur.

The stop-go technique is similar, but your partner doesn’t squeeze your penis. Once you feel more confident about delaying ejaculation, you and your partner can begin to have sex, stopping and starting as required.

These techniques may sound simple, but they require lots of practice.

Antidepressants (SSRIs) Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) are designed to treat depression, but they also delay ejaculation. SSRIs used for this purpose include:

Some men may experience an improvement as soon as treatment begins. However, you’ll usually need to take the medication for one to two weeks before you notice the full effects.

Side effects of SSRIs are usually mild and should improve after two to three weeks.

Prilogy (Dapoxetine) An SSRI specifically designed to treat premature ejaculation, known as dapoxetine (Priligy), has now been licensed in the UK. Local NHS authorities can choose to prescribe it on the NHS.

It acts much faster than the SSRIs mentioned above and can be used “on demand”. You’ll usually be advised to take it between one and three hours before sex, but not more than once a day.

Dapoxetine isn’t suitable for all men diagnosed with premature ejaculation. For example, it is not recommended for some men with heart, kidney and liver problems. It can also interact with other medications, such as other antidepressants.
