Premature Ejaculation

Premature ejaculation is a condition that can lead to dissatisfaction for both partners during sexual activities. If left unaddressed, it may contribute to low self-esteem, frustration, and relationship issues. 

At Forever Young, we offer comprehensive treatment and support to address premature ejaculation, aiming to help you achieve a more satisfying sexual life. We focus on identifying the underlying causes of your condition and providing personalized treatment to address your specific needs.

Understanding Premature Ejaculation

Ejaculation is the sudden and pleasurable release of semen through the penis, controlled by your brain and central nervous system. When you are sexually stimulated, climax occurs as semen is ejected through the penis.

Premature ejaculation (PE) is a sexual dysfunction where men reach climax and ejaculate with minimal sexual stimulation, often before they desire it. It involves persistent or recurrent premature ejaculations during sexual activities, including masturbation.

While occasional early ejaculation is not necessarily a cause for concern, it can be frustrating if it affects the enjoyment of the sexual act and impacts your relationships. Frequent PE may lead to long-term dissatisfaction, low self-esteem, and stress.

The specific duration defining premature ejaculation can vary, but it is generally considered to occur within 1 to 3 minutes of penetration.

There are two types of PE: 

  • Lifelong or primary PE is when you’ve always had this experience since your first sexual experience.
  • Acquired or secondary PE occurs when you have experienced longer-lasting ejaculations but have developed PE more recently.

Causes of Premature Ejaculation

While the precise cause of premature ejaculation remains unclear, various biological and psychological factors can contribute to this condition. 

  • Mental health disorders can impact your overall sexual health and performance, potentially leading to premature ejaculation. These include conditions such as stress, anxiety, and depression.
  • Performance anxiety related to fear of failure or excessive worry about satisfying your partner may contribute to PE. Poor body image and low self-esteem can also play a role.
  • Prostate issues such as inflammation or infection of the prostate gland may contribute to premature ejaculation. 
  • Neurological issues, including conditions such as multiple sclerosis or neuropathy, can affect nerve signals involved in ejaculation. This can potentially result in premature ejaculation. 
  • Abnormal hormone levels, such as imbalances in serotonin and testosterone, can influence ejaculation and contribute to premature ejaculation. 

Hormones and Premature Ejaculation

Hormones play a crucial role in regulating your sexual function and performance. Certain hormonal factors can influence the ejaculatory control in men. 

Serotonin: This neurotransmitter helps in the regulation of your mood, emotions, sleep, and sexual desire. High levels of serotonin tend to prolong the time for ejaculation. Conversely, low levels of serotonin can shorten the time to ejaculation, potentially contributing to premature ejaculation.

Testosterone: Low levels of testosterone can lead to erectile dysfunction (ED). Testosterone levels naturally decline with age, and while aging itself is not directly related to PE, it can contribute to ED. In some cases, men may experience both premature ejaculation and erectile dysfunction simultaneously. Addressing the symptoms of ED first can help alleviate or resolve PE concerns.

Oxytocin: This hormone is involved in sexual function in men, and an imbalance in oxytocin levels could potentially contribute to sexual issues, including PE. 

Other hormones: Additional hormones, such as luteinizing hormone (LH), prolactin, and thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH), also play roles in sexual function. Imbalances in these hormones could potentially impact ejaculatory control and your overall sexual health.

Treatment for Premature Ejaculation

The treatment of premature ejaculation can vary depending on the underlying causes of the condition. The treatment approach often involves a combination of behavioral, psychological, and medical interventions.

Behavioral Techniques

Behavioral techniques involve attempts to control your body and trying different methods to delay your orgasm. These include:

  • Pelvic floor exercises to strengthen your pelvic floor muscles and improve ejaculatory control.
  • Start-stop technique includes pausing sexual activity at the point of ejaculation and resuming after a brief break. This can help delay ejaculation.
  • Squeeze technique involves applying pressure to the base of your penis to delay ejaculation.

Psychological Counseling

If the cause of your condition is psychological, emotional, or relationship issues, counseling may be beneficial. It can address factors like performance anxiety, depression, stress, guilt, or relationship challenges.


Prescribed medications to target conditions like serotonin level imbalances may help manage premature ejaculation symptoms. Additionally, medications to delay ejaculation can also help.

Hormone Therapy

If you are experiencing both erectile dysfunction and premature ejaculation simultaneously, Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT) may be beneficial. 

TRT addresses low testosterone levels and helps improve overall sexual health and performance in men. At Forever Young, our experienced team offers comprehensive TRT plans tailored to individual needs.
