Premature Ejaculation

Overview, Causes, & Risk Factors | Symptoms & Signs | Diagnosis & Tests | Prevention & Expectations | Treatment & Monitoring

Premature ejaculation is a condition in which semen is released from the penis with little sexual excitement. Ejaculation usually occurs before or shortly after intercourse begins.

What is going on in the body?

The causes of this condition are not well understood. It is common for a man to have this problem once in a while. If the problem occur repeatedly, it can cause stress in a relationship. Ejaculation may occur before either partner has had time to fully enjoy the sexual activity.

What are the causes and risks of the condition?

The cause of premature ejaculation is rarely physical. The condition may result from:

  • anxiety
  • sexual inexperience
  • guilty feelings about sex
  • negative feelings toward the sexual partner
  • Rarely, this condition may be linked to neurological problems such as multiple sclerosis. It can also be due to inflammation of the urethra or the prostate, such as acute prostatitis.
