What is Premature Ejaculation?
Premature ejaculation (PE) is ejaculation in response to minimal stimulation before, at the time of, or shortly after penetration, but before the man wishes it, and over which the man feels he has little or no control. It is important to recognize that premature ejaculation is a subjective diagnosis and totally depends on the satisfaction of the partners.
At BrandeisMD, we recognize that PE is distressing to a man and his partner. We take your concerns seriously and we are motivated to help you. As an expert in male sexual medicine, I have significant experience helping men with PE, and I can work with you to try to achieve your goals.
How common is PE?
PE is the most common sexual dysfunction reported by men but is still under-diagnosed and under-treated. Estimating the prevalence of PE is difficult since many men do not want to talk about it, while others may not even perceive that they have PE.
However, recent research indicates that 25-30% of men struggle with PE.
PE can happen at any age and its prevalence is consistent across all ages.
BrandeisMD has a number of innovative solutions for premature ejaculation and welcomes patients with this medical condition.
