Premature Ejaculation (P/E)

Most men experience P.E. at some point in their lives, and can be entirely normal - especially if they have not taken part in any sexual activity for a while.

There is no clear definition of P.E. - as it will vary for each person and each couple.

What is normal, and satisfying for one couple - may not be for another. Some sources define P.E. as climaxing within 2 minutes of penetration - but this could be completely normal for a couple, with both parties quite happy with this situation.

If you feel that you have a problem with P.E. - then our doctors can certainly help.

There are medications which can increase the time to ejaculation on average 9 times, without affecting the ability to sustain an erection.

Before embarking on medical treatment, it is a good idea to try the following:

  • To prevent early ejaculation the first method involves distracting yourself from the situation. When you are aroused and a climax is near, stop sexual activity and think about something boring, getting thus less aroused you can continue having sex.
  • If you spend more time on foreplay before sex, it will help to stimulate your sexual partner before you are aroused and thus to prevent premature ejaculation.
  • Masturbation helps men to learn more about their own sensations and to perform different approaches. In addition to this method a man can use the exercises such as ‘stop and start”, “squeeze” exercise. (Do a google search if you need more info on this.)

If you have tried these methods, and are still looking for a more intensive medical treatment - then click on "consultation" and one of our doctors can help you further.

Most commonly, our doctors prescribe a medication called "Priligy". This costs about £40 for most people and is the only UK licensed medication for P.E.
