Timing can be everything in the bedroom. If you come to a climax sooner than for you and your partner, sex might not be satisfying. It is known as premature ejaculation.

What is premature ejaculation?

There’s no time when a man should ejaculate during sex. But no doubt it will be too soon if you get the orgasm before intercourse or less than a minute before you even have started. It is an issue because when you ejaculate, you lose the erection and can’t continue to have sex. You both might feel that there’s not much time to enjoy it.

It is a common issue for most men. About 40%-50% have it at some time in their life. Therefore, keep in mind that it is not something to worry about as it happens only sometimes.

What leads to premature ejaculation?

The reason behind this is not known,but your chemistry could be at least partly to be blamed. Men suffering from low levels of the chemical serotonin in their minds tend to take less time to ejaculate.

Emotional factors can play a role in premature ejaculation like:

  • Depression
  • Stress
  • Guilt
  • Performance anxiety

Relationship issues

Sometimes it can also be a problem for men with ED. This is when the penis does not remain firm enough to have sex. Treating ED might make the PE go away.Medications can help to maintain the erection.

When to see a doctor?
