Premature Ejaculation Q & A
What Causes Premature Ejaculation?
Premature ejaculation is the inability to control the time of ejaculation and orgasm. In most cases, ejaculation will occur prior to penetration, or shortly after. Premature ejaculation does not have a clearly defined cause. It can be the result of extreme stress or anxiety and may only occur during specific situations. Depression and guilt may also cause this type of dysfunction. Certain medications, increased age, injuries to the genitals, and hormonal imbalances can also play a role in how well a man can control ejaculation.
Are Erectile Dysfunction and Premature Ejaculation Related?
Many people confuse erectile dysfunction and premature ejaculation. Although they are related to an extent, they are two distinctly different health conditions. Erectile dysfunction has to do with maintaining an erection, while premature ejaculation involves early orgasm prior to or shortly after penetration. While premature ejaculation may occur as a result of the person trying to finish the act prior to losing an erection, the main connection is the inability to control how the male reproductive system responds to sexual stimuli.
