Premature Ejaculation

Early Premature Ejaculation (PE) is a condition where a man cannot control or delay his ejaculation. According to an NHS survey, the average length of sexual intercourse is 5 and a half minutes. However, it varies between couples and it is up to individual partners to decide if they are happy with how long it lasts. There is no specific time associated with PE, but it is thought that anything under 2 minutes may be classed as premature. PE can take a toll on a man’s confidence and self-esteem and lead to emotional and sexual frustration. PE can prevent men and their partners from having enough time to enjoy sex which can affect relationships and intimacy.

What is Premature Ejaculation (PE)?

Premature Ejaculation (PE) - or Early - is a condition where a man cannot control or delay his ejaculation. According to an NHS survey, the average length of sexual intercourse is 5 and a half minutes. However, it varies between couples and it is up to individual partners to decide if they are happy with how long it lasts. There is no specific time associated with PE, but it is thought that anything under 2 minutes may be classed as premature. PE can take a toll on a man’s confidence and self-esteem and lead to emotional and sexual frustration. PE can prevent men and their partners from having enough time to enjoy sex which can affect relationships and intimacy.

PE is one of the most prevalent conditions among men and is believed to affect between 1 in 3 to 1 in 5 men. These figures could be significantly higher but less than a quarter of men seek help for PE. Although PE is more common in men aged under 35 years, particularly those with limited sexual experience, it can also develop later in life.

PE can be caused by several physical and psychological factors. The most common cause is performance anxiety particularly at the start of a new relationship but can also be due to depression, nerves or stress. Health conditions such as high blood pressure, diabetes, prostate issues and thyroid problems can cause PE while excess alcohol and recreational drugs can also contribute. It is believed that men who have a lower amount of the chemical serotonin in their brain can have problems with ejaculation.

How we can help you

Thankfully, PE can be managed effectively with our range of treatments. Occasional episodes of PE are not a cause for concern, but if over half of your attempts at sexual intercourse result in PE it may be beneficial to seek some help. The two main options are oral tablets and topical creams that aim to delay ejaculation for a more satisfying sexual experience for both partners.

We understand that this is a sensitive topic for some men and therefore we offer a discreet delivery and safe service to help remove any obstacles to your satisfaction. Your orders from My Private Pharmacist are the only things that should come earlier than expected!
