Premature ejaculation (or PE) means that you ejaculate before you and/or your partner want. Over 30% of men suffer from premature ejaculation at some stage in their lives. On average, men ejaculate within 5-10 minutes after entering the vagina (“penetration”). Virtually all men will lose their erection after ejaculating and it can take between several minutes and several hours before the next erection.
Effectively the nerve supply in the penis is overly sensitive, i.e. the “thermostat” or “neurostat” for the penile nerves is set too high. The aim of treatment is to reduce this over-sensitivity immediately with medication, and in the long-term by exercises with you and your partner.
YOU ARE NOT ALONE! Almost all men will occasionally ejaculate very quickly, and if you don’t often have sex, the more likely you are to ejaculate quickly when you do. Sometimes a new partner can bring on PE after years of living without it, or it can be relationship difficulties or psychological problem that brings it back. If necessary, we can refer you on to a counsellor as well as using this treatment.
Is medication necessary?
Medication combined with exercises has success rates better than 95%. With the injectable medication you can carry on and have fun after ejaculation, doing whatever you and your partner desire as your erection is still maintained.
