PREMATURE EJACULATION

It is involuntarily controlled and causes negative personal consequences like distress, frustration and avoidance of sexual intimacy.
Exact etiology and risk factors are unknown.

Patient Education

Education & Coaching

  • Used to address conditions of PE that are not treated w/ pharmacological therapy
  • Helps the patient to discriminate facts from myths by providing information about prevalence of PE & general population IELT
  • May help patients w/ PE who avoid sexual activity, are unwilling to discuss issues w/ their partner or limit their sexual repertoire because they fear sexual excitement
  • A medical intervention w/ basic psychoeducation is initially recommended in lifelong PE as it is likely to have an organic etiology
    • However, if the PE has resulted in psychological & relationship concerns, graded levels of patient & couple counselling, guidance, &/or relationship therapy may be a useful adjunct to the medical intervention
