Premature ejaculation occurs when a man ejaculates sooner
during sexual intercourse than they or their partner would like.
As long as it happens infrequently, it's not cause for concern.
However, if you regularly ejaculate sooner than you and your
partner wish ó such as before intercourse begins or shortly
afterward it can be considered premature ejaculation.
Premature ejaculation is a common sexual complaint. Estimates
vary, but as many as 1 out of 3 men may be affected by this

Medicine, an American research paper reported:
- the average lasting time of men with Premature Ejaculation (PE)

cent of men couldn't last 90 seconds inside the vagina. Those
males undoubtedly have PE.

premature ejaculation can be caused by temporary depression,
stress over financial matters, unrealistic expectations about
performance, a history of sexual repression, or an overall lack of
confidence. Interpersonal dynamics strongly contribute to sexual
function, and premature ejaculation can be caused by a lack of
communication between partners, hurt feelings, or unresolved
conflicts that interfere with the ability to achieve emotional
Neurological premature ejaculation can also lead to
other forms of sexual dysfunction, or intensify the existing
problem, by creating performance anxiety. In a less pathological
context, premature ejaculation could also be caused simply by
In most cases men will last longer if they have sex a second time
a little while later, but it can take anything from a few minutes
to several hours to get another erection and the passion to go
Finally, there's no question that anxiety or 'nerves' play a part
in many cases of PE. If you're nervous, you're likely to come too
