The clinical definition of rapid ejaculation is inability of a man to sustain sexual intercourse for more than one minute prior to ejaculation. However, many men seek to increase the time of sexual activity in order to achieve improved sexual satisfaction for himself and his partner. Premature ejaculation is one of the leading male sexual dysfunctions affecting approximately 25% of men of all ages.
Treatments for Premature Ejaculation
Premature ejaculation has many potential causes so we recommend that you make an appointment to visit us. This examination rarely involves an examination of the genitals. Treatment for PE will depend upon the results of the medical examination.
Many men respond well to an off-label prescription of antidepressants known as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) which have shown in many studies to delay ejaculation. SSRIs are often associated with a variety of side effects including fatigue, erectile dysfunction and dry mouth, among others. As a result, many men often seek alternative treatment.
Topical anesthetic medications are most often first-line treatment for premature ejaculation. They are effective, easy-to-use, low cost per use, and have a negligible risk of systemic side effects.
We are having good success with Promescent®, from Absorption Pharmaceuticals, which provides improved ejaculatory control yet allows the man to maintain good sexual feeling. Promescent’s absorption formula nearly eliminates transfer to his partner.
