Symptoms and Diagnosis of Premature Ejaculation

Premature ejaculation is characterized by early ejaculation with an inability to delay the process.

Symptoms of premature ejaculation include:

Ejaculation during sex usually occurs before or within one minute of vaginal penetration. It could be of recent onset or present since the beginning. The symptoms are present for at least 6 months

The male is unable to delay ejaculations

Psychological problems may follow like frustration, lack of enjoyment from sex, which could further lead to depression and lack of self-esteem

The woman may be unable to get pregnant because of the premature ejaculation

Diagnosis is based on the history from the patient. The past sexual relationships should be inquired into in the history. The patient should also be evaluated through physical and psychological examination to rule out any underlying cause.

Measurement of hormones like testosterone can be used to rule out hormonal problems.

In some cases, the female partner may take too long to achieve an orgasm, and the problem may not be in the male. This fact should be taken into consideration while diagnosing premature ejaculation.
