Recognised as a medical condition by global health organisations 1,2,7, premature ejaculation is the inability to control or delay ejaculation before or shortly after penetration.2 It is also commonly known as ‘premature orgasm’, ‘early ejaculation’, ‘coming (cumming) too quickly’, ‘come (cum) too fast’ or ‘rapid ejaculation’.
Erectile dysfunction (ED) is the inability to obtain an erection, or the loss of erection before ejaculation, whereas premature ejaculation (PE) is the inability to control ejaculation. Some men with PE also have ED.8 PE and ED are different conditions and require different treatments.9
Up to one-in-three men may experience some form of PE at some point in their lives.1–6 PE affects men of all ages.3,5
Being unable to control ejaculation can lead to a decrease in quality of life and sexual satisfaction for couples. PE is frustrating, and can lower self-confidence and disrupt relationships and intimacy.2
