Premature ejaculation, also referred to as rapid ejaculation, premature climax, early ejaculation or PE is a condition affecting men on an everyday basis. Premature ejaculation is depicted as an involuntary lack of control over ejaculation ranging from before penetration to soon after penetration. If PE occurs infrequently, it usually is not cause for concern. However, if the situation arises on a regular basis it can be categorized as PE. Premature ejaculation can be a very frustrating problem. PE may even prevent pregnancy from occurring if the male ejaculates too soon before entering the vagina. One in three men are affected by it; reducing quality of life. Although the exact cause is unknown, there are a few different treatments available. It is understood that both psychological and biological factors can play a role in premature ejaculation. Medications, psychological counseling and sexual techniques that will help delay ejaculations can help keep the issue under control.
