What are the symptoms of premature ejaculation?
The main symptom of premature ejaculation is uncontrollable ejaculation with minimal sexual stimulation, occurring slightly before or slightly after sexual intercourse. If you have been having problems with premature ejaculation since you first had sex, the condition is referred to as primary premature ejaculation. If the problem has developed over time, it’s referred to as secondary premature ejaculation. It’s important to distinguish between the two, because it will help your doctor determine the best treatment options.
Primary premature ejaculation is characterized by ejaculation that usually occurs approximately one minute before or one minute after the beginning of sexual intercourse. The condition can cause several negative consequences, including stress, frustration, and infrequent sex. On the other hand, secondary premature ejaculation develops after you’ve already had a satisfying sexual relationship with no premature ejaculation problems.
If you regularly climax before you and your partner are ready, you might have a problem with premature ejaculation. Make an appointment with your doctor to discuss treatment options.
