User avatar Hello,

Premature ejaculation (PE) is the commonest sexual dysfunction in males younger than 40 years.

The sexual response in divided into 3 phases: desire, excitement, and orgasm.

Premature ejaculation is considered a psychological disorder and not an organic problem. Anxiety for performance or any other deep psychological problems are involved.

Most professionals diagnose premature ejaculation if ejaculation occurs before reaching sexual satisfaction for both partners regardless the time it takes to finish.

No lab tests or investigations are required in most of the cases.
Checking a serum testosterone (free and total) level and prolactin level may be appropriate if premature ejaculation is observed in conjunction with an impotence problem.

Premature ejaculation does not interfere with conception unless it occurs before man's penis is inside the woman's vagina.

Keep us updated.
Best regards.
