Premature ejaculation occurs when a man reaches orgasm and ejaculates within a small span of time and without control. In other words, ejaculation occurs before a man expects it to happen. It may occur before or after beginning foreplay or intercourse. Some men experience severe personal distress because of this condition.
Several factors may contribute to premature ejaculation. Psychological problems such as stress, depression and other factors that affect mental and emotional health can aggravate this condition.
The key symptoms of premature ejaculation include:
Ejaculation that routinely occurs with little sexual stimulation and with little control
Decreased sexual pleasure because of poor control over ejaculation
Feeling of guilt, embarrassment or frustration
