Orlando Premature Ejaculation
Premature ejaculation (PE) can be classified as lifelong or acquired.
According to the International Society of Sexual Medicine, lifelong premature ejaculation is defined as male sexual dysfunction characterized by ejaculation that always or nearly always occurs before or within about 1 min of vaginal penetration and the inability to delay ejaculation on all or almost all vaginal penetrations, which results in negative personal consequences, such as distress, bother, frustration, and/or avoidance of sexual intimacy.
Acquired PE occurs at some point in a man’s life after having experienced normal ejaculation experiences in the past.
If a patient feels he is experiencing PE and would like treatment, it is important that he be assessed by a physician experienced with identifying the condition, considering if PE is lifelong or acquired, and devising an optimal treatment plan. Prior to treatment, a thorough history and physical exam should be conducted. All the treatment risks and benefits should be addressed before initiating treatment.
Treatment can include an on-demand oral medication that is taken several hours before sexual activity and one that is taken daily.
There are additional topical medications that can be applied to assist with delaying ejaculation.
In addition, there are behavioral techniques that can be used to delay ejaculation.
