Premature Ejaculation FAQs | What You Need to Know

What Is Premature Ejaculation?

Premature ejaculation (PE) is a kind of sexual dysfunction characterized by orgasms happening sooner than anticipated. This condition can severely affect a man’s sex life and his partner.
Our understanding and recognition of male sexual dysfunction over the years have already improved. Doctors are now more knowledgeable about the problems that can arise from it.

What Are the Treatment Options for Premature Ejaculation?

For cases caused by a psychological factor, the prognosis is good. If it happens at the start of a new sexual relationship, it usually resolves as the relationship moves forward.
If the problem becomes more persistent, however, experts may recommend couple’s therapy or counseling from a professional specializing in sexual relationships.
At the moment, there are no officially licensed PE medications in the United States but some antidepressants are found to help some patients delay ejaculation.
To qualify for a prescription, your doctor has to know your detailed sexual history to come up with a definitive PE diagnosis. Illicit consumption of drug treatments can have adverse effects so always talk to a professional before taking any medication.

The Priapus Shot or P Shot is a drug-free, non-surgical procedure which uses a patient’s own blood to extract Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP). This PRP aids in sensation, healing, and circulation.
The P Shot procedure begins with a simple blood draw. Then, the growth and healing factors are extracted from the blood and concentrated into the PRP using a proprietary technique.
These growth and healing factors stimulate rejuvenation and healing. They promote tissue growth that makes the production of new blood vessels possible.
As a result, the blood circulation in the penis is improved, leading to stronger erections and increased sensation, pleasure, and overall sex drive.
The PRP is then injected into the penis targeting the areas most important for sexual response. This procedure causes little to zero discomfort, according to patients.
Unlike other treatments for premature ejaculation and other male sexual dysfunctions, there are almost no major side effects from getting P Shot.

Psychological factors or an underlying medical condition may cause premature ejaculation.

Psychological Factors

In most cases of premature ejaculation, the cause is usually psychological including the following:

  • Depression
  • Performance anxiety
  • Relationship stress
  • Sexual inexperience
  • Overstimulation or overexcitement
  • Body image issues
  • Relationship novelty
  • Feelings of inadequacy and guilt
  • Control and intimacy issues
Even men with normal ejaculations can form this dysfunction because of the factors listed above. These cases are called secondary or acquired premature ejaculation.
Primary or lifelong premature ejaculation are rarer. Most of the cases like this are also caused by psychological problems, specifically trauma from:
  • Strict sexual upbringing
  • Traumatic sex experiences
  • Psychological conditioning (A teenager may have been used to reaching climax quickly to avoid getting caught.)
Medical Causes
PE caused by medical causes is rarer than primary PE. Here are some of the medical causes that can induce early ejaculation:
  • Diabetes
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Prostate diseases
  • Illicit use of drugs
  • Overconsumption of alcohol

What Are the Symptoms of Premature Ejaculation?

To qualify as a patient with primary premature ejaculation, he must manifest any two of the following symptoms:
  • A man reaches his climax always or nearly always before sexual intercourse is successful or within about of penetration.
  • During sexual intercourse, a man is always or nearly always unable to delay ejaculation.
  • Negative emotional reactions happen—the man gets distressed and frustrated or will avoid sexual intimacy altogether.
The psychological symptoms happen after the physical ejaculatory events. The man, his partner, or both of them may show any of the following secondary symptoms:
  • Decreased confidence in the relationship
  • Interpersonal difficulty
  • Mental distress
  • Depression
  • Embarrassment
  • Anxiety
