Symptoms and Causes of PE

Premature ejaculation (PE) is one of the more common sexual dysfunctions occurring in men around the world. Although it is a condition that generally affects men under 35, and is common among teens, it can strike at any age. PE can be either a lifelong condition, or it may come in bouts – or just for one period in your life. PE is deemed to be a problem if you or your partner believe that it is happening too often.

Symptoms of PE

Premature ejaculation is typified by being unable to control ejaculation within around 2 minutes of beginning intercourse. Ejaculation may even occur before intercourse begins. The definition isn’t set in stone – if you are finding yourself unable to control ejaculation until your partner is ready, then you might also be reaching out for help with this situation.

Premature ejaculation can be tough on both partners. It may create a range of mixed emotions and intimacy issues for the man affected as well as his partner. If issues like these arise from PE, then it is time to seek consultation.

Causes of PE

The main causes of premature ejaculation are psychological. These may be ongoing, stemming from ideas or practices to do with when you were younger (in the case of lifelong PE), or it may be short-term issues, in the case of acquired PE.

These short-term stressors can include:

  • Being in a new relationship (either over excitement, nervousness, etc.)
  • Anxiety
  • Stress (in work, in your relationship, money troubles, etc.)
  • Depression

A combination of cognitive therapy and medicine can help when addressing psychologically based PE.

There are also physical causes of PE which can be from conditions like diabetes, hypothyroidism, and multiple sclerosis, which is better treated with medicine alone – and possibly reassessing your current medicinal treatments for your situation.
