Patient Education

Education and Coaching

  • Used to address conditions of PE that are not treated with pharmacological therapy
  • Helps the patient to discriminate facts from myths by providing information about prevalence of PE and general population IELT
  • May help patients with PE who avoid sexual activity, are unwilling to discuss issues with their partner or limit their sexual repertoire because they fear sexual excitement
  • A medical intervention with 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 and relationship concerns, graded levels of patient and couple counselling, guidance, and/or relationship therapy may be a useful adjunct to the medical intervention
