Ask a question
Premature ejaculation generally occurs a few seconds after penetration when the man cannot control his excitement and involuntary ejaculation occurs.

A vicious cycle often sets in: stress favors premature ejaculation, which itself causes anxiety, which further exacerbates premature ejaculation.

Premature ejaculation may also correspond to a relational problem with one's partner. Some men ejaculate prematurely with some women and show no abnormality with other partners.

How To Treat Premature Ejaculation

Motivation and patience are essential to try to treat a disorder of premature ejaculation. Try to avoid becoming too embarrassed and, instead, seek medical advice as soon as possible.



Consulting a sex therapist can be an important help for men suffering from premature ejaculation. It is often advisable to go to counseling with one's partner. Some rehabilitation exercises and learning about sex can help men with premature ejaculation.
