Premature ejaculation Information

Health condition


A man experiencing premature ejaculation will have problem controlling an erection. When muscles in the penis contract to stop the inflow of blood and open outflow channels, erection is reversed. Ejaculation happens before the individual or couple would like, ranging from before penetration to a point too soon after penetration for the couple to feel fully satisfied.

Very early ejaculation, occurring prior to entry into the vagina, may prohibit a desired pregnancy. A continued lack of ejaculatory control may lead to sexual dissatisfaction on the part of either or both partners. Sex can become nervous, a nightmare or even up to the point of avoiding it out of fear that his sexual performance is inadequate. This may be a factor in sexual tension or discord in the relationship.

Premature ejaculation is a common complaint and is only rarely caused by a physical or structural problem. Happening early in a relationship is most common, and often caused by anxiety and over stimulation. Other psychological factors such as guilt may also be relevant. With time, the condition usually improves without formal treatment.
There are many factors resulting a reverse in erection. Depending on the well being of the person, it may be due to several causes. It can be due to stress or to certain physical conditions, emotional or psychological factors and even poor health issues like high cholestrol.
A physical examination is usually normal as abnormal findings are unlikely to be associated with the condition. Useful information is more likely to be obtained from interviewing the person or the couple.
