Premature Ejaculation

What is ‘Premature Ejaculation’?

Premature Ejaculation describes the condition when a man ejaculates or ‘comes’ too soon. But how soon is too soon? If ejaculation occurs sooner than the man or his partner wish, it may be considered ‘premature’, but there is no universally agreed definition of premature ejaculation. Ejaculation often occurs within two minutes of penetration...some men last longer, others shorter.

Until now, no drug has ever been licensed specifically for the treatment of Premature Ejaculation, but we are now delighted to announce the launch of Priligy....the first ever drug designed specifically to treat this condition which affects so many men.

Priligy is suitable for men aged 18-65 years old and is recommended to patients who typically last less than two minutes. Clinical trials have shown that Priligy can increase longevity by up to 300% and has very few, if any side-effects. Priligy is a Specific Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitor (SSRI) and is related to antidepressants such as Prozac. A large number of patients with Premature Ejaculation show low Serotonin levels in the brain. Priligy is designed to increase Serotonin levels for a short period to enable sex to last longer, it is fast acting and then quickly expelled from the body. The tablet should be taken an hour before sex but should not be taken more than once a day. Priligy is available in 30mg and 60mg doses.

Until now standard antidepressants have been used off-label to treat Premature Ejaculation but they aren’t fast acting, they must be taken daily and they tend to have more side-effects. They can, in some cases reduce libido and leave patients unable to ejaculate. Priligy has not been shown to reduce sex-drive and side-effects are rare and if they do occur are relatively mild and transient.

If you believe you suffer from Premature Ejaculation then Priligy could be the solution. However, at Leger Clinic we can also offer other forms of treatment as well as Psychosexual therapy to address the issue because there are still no firmly established causes for this condition and they can be both physiological and psychological.

Leger Clinic can offer a private consultation to discuss your needs, carry out a medical examination and work with you to determine the best treatment options. You can contact us by email to book an appointment. We will need details of any medical conditions you have as well as information about any medication you take.
