What is premature ejaculation?

This 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 , there is no universally agreed definition however most experts agree that ejaculation occurring within 2 minutes of penetration would be classed as premature ejaculation.

This is a common condition occurring in about 1 in 5 men. Most men with it tend to present to the clinic at a young age, typically in their 20’s because of the level of distress it is causing them and their partners. Fortunately, there are several effective treatments available including psychosexual therapy, the off-license use of certain antidepressants, a drug specifically developed for this condition, called Priligy and some patients use local anaesthetic gels.

At the Clinic we would make a full assessment of your condition and decide on the preferred treatment for your individual case.
