Premature Ejaculation Diagram

Premature Ejaculation (PE) is a problem whereby men may ejaculate too quickly. This condition affects one in three men.

Occasional premature ejaculation is not a problem, however if it is occurring more than 50% of the time, there may be a cause for concern. Most men would not have had this problem initially and would have developed what is called ‘secondary’ premature ejaculation.

Around 1 in every 50 men in England will have suffered lifelong ‘primary’ premature ejaculation, whereby there is an inability to delay ejaculation during sex most or every time causing feelings of embarrassment and frustration that could affect the individuals quality of life.
