Premature ejaculation is the most common type of sexual dysfunction, and almost all men experience it on a short term basis at some point in their lives. Symptoms include ejaculation before penetration, or less the two minutes after penetration. There are no rules as to how long sex should last, and you and your partner may not mind if you suffer from premature ejaculation, but it is worth seeing your doctor anyway, as it may be a symptom of an underlying condition. Premature ejaculation (PE) may be caused by either physical or emotional difficulties, such as having an oversensitive penis or having an emotional problem such as performance anxiety or feeling stressed. There are also lifelong conditioned issues which can cause you to suffer from PE, such as having certain thoughts conditioned from childhood. There are medications you can take to prevent premature ejaculation, such as Priligy (Dapoxetine), a type off SSRI (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor) or EMLA Cream, an anaesthetic which numbs the penis to reduce the sensations you feel. You can buy these medications from an online doctor such as iMeds.

Suffering from premature ejaculation is a very common condition, which mostly affects younger men, but which most men experience at some point during their life. It may be caused by emotional or physical difficulties, such as relationship difficulties or anxiety, or a physical condition such as having an oversensitive penis. You should speak to your doctor so as they can confirm that the problem is not due to an underlying illness. There are medications you can take, such as the SSRI Priligy, or the local anaesthetic EMLA Cream, to manage the problem.
