Ejaculation problems are common and often put men off having sex, or make them anxious.
Premature ejaculation refers to when a man ejaculates sooner than he and/or his partner would like during sexual activity, and this occurs on most or all occasions, causing distress to the man and/or his partner.
It is interesting to note that studies suggest the average time from penetration to ejaculation is approximately 5 minutes, though the range varies widely. Men with premature ejaculation will often ejaculate significantly earlier, or even before penetration.
Sometimes premature ejaculation can be associated with erection problems (erectile dysfunction) – men with erection problems can sometimes feel the need to hurry along their sexual activity before they lose their erection.
Relationship difficulties can sometimes also contribute to premature ejaculation.
Delayed ejaculation refers to the problem of not being able to ejaculate as early as a man and/or his partner would like, or not being able to ejaculate at all, despite adequate stimulation. Both physical and psychological causes can contribute.
Reduced, absent or painful ejaculation problems can also occur.
There are several options available to manage these ejaculation problems, and we would be happy to discuss these with you at our clinic. The Nuffield Health Brighton Hospital (details below) is well located for us to consult with people from Brighton & Hove, Sussex, and further afield.
