Premature Ejaculation, often referred to as PE, is the most common sexual dysfunction in men below 60 years old, estimated to affect around 30% of men irrespective of age. From a medical perspective, in order for a patient to be classified as suffering from premature ejaculation, he must exhibit the following:
- Ejaculation always or almost always occurs before or within one minute after penile penetration.
- Loss of control over ejaculation – inability to delay ejaculation before or after penetration
- Negative personal consequences and feelings, which might lead to avoidance of sexual activity
