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 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
