The cause of Premature Ejaculation can be psychological or biological. Though there is no standard cause yet, hormonal imbalances and psychological stress have changed the sexual behaviour of men. Premature Ejaculation can be a risk for a relationship and that makes it important to cure the cause for PE before it gets too late.
What is Premature Ejaculation?
- Premature ejaculation is when you can’t control the climax and cum sooner than desired satisfaction for one or both partners.
- Over, 25% of men of the world are suffering from this sexual problem
- For clinical trials ejaculation is under 1 minute.
In many Sexual Illnesses, Premature Ejaculation is the most common type of disorder that can affect 4 out of 6 males. In premature ejaculation, you come quickly before standard time. When somebody can’t control the ejaculation and cannot last it longer, there is a need to know the premature ejaculation cause.
To identify what causes Premature Ejaculation, we should understand the three crucial aspects of PE are – ejaculatory latency, control, and sexual satisfaction.
Intravaginal Ejaculatory Latency: The duration between penetration and ejaculation when the penis is inside the vagina. Ejaculation before 4 min after intromission should be considered premature ejaculation. (How long should a man last before ejaculation)
Voluntary control: An inability to voluntarily defer ejaculation also defines PE (What makes a man climax quickly).
Sexual Satisfaction: The inability to control and defer ejaculation results in a sexually unsatisfied partner. (PE can cause infertility and avoid pregnancy)

Premature Ejaculation Examination:
It is important to know how long should a man last before ejaculation to identify PE. Premature Ejaculation examination can be done at home according to this chart:
|Men with an intravaginal ejaculatory latency time (IELT) of less than 1 minute||Confirmed PE|
|Men with an intravaginal ejaculatory latency time (IELT) of 1-1.5 minute||Probable PE|
|Men with an intravaginal ejaculatory latency time (IELT) of more than 2 minute||Negative PE|
How does Ejaculation work?
Ejaculation is a process that is controlled by the nervous system of a person. During sexual intercourse, when a man gets sexually stimulated then the signal is sent to its spinal cord and brain. And when that person reaches a certain level of excitement then those signals are again transferred from the brain to the reproductive organs.
And these signals cause ejaculation of the semen through the male reproductive organ ( penis).
Ejaculation involves mainly two phases.
The first phase (emission) through which the components of semen are released from the male reproductive organs (prostate, seminal vesicle, vas deferens). During this process, semen is deposited into the urethra (urine channel).
The second phase (ejaculation proper, evacuation) is a reflex that causes rhythmic contractions of the muscles around the urethra which propels the semen through the urethra and from the penis.
Pelvic floor muscles such as ischiocavernosus and bulbospongiosus play an important role in the complete ejaculation reflex.
Premature Ejaculation Causes
Premature Ejaculation is usually caused by stress, depression, relationship stress, physical weakness, Erectile Dysfunction etc. Physical causes such as increased blood pressure, such as diabetes, thyroid problems, or prostate disease can also be the reason. This is a type of disease that affects the quality of man’s sperm.
If a person is suffering from PE, then it is advised to visit a Sex specialist as they are the only ones who can identify the root cause of the issue.
Premature Ejaculation Physical Causes
The lack of Serotonin levels in the body is the major reason for getting Premature Ejaculation in a person.
Premature Ejaculation can be seen because of many reasons but the main reason is the level of Serotonin. It is a special natural substance that is made by nerves. It is said that a higher amount of serotonin in the brain increases the ejaculation time. And likewise, a lesser level can decrease the time of ejaculation which ultimately leads to PE.

Behavioral Therapy is the exercises that can help you build some tolerance and delay ejaculation. The goal of these therapies is to take away PE permanently from your body. And as compared to the physical exercise, they have a last-long effect.
- The Squeeze Method
With this method, you and your partner have to stimulate until you come close to ejaculation. And once it is done, you and your partner gently squeeze your penis to make your erection go away. The main motto of doing this is to make you aware of the sensations leading to climax.
This method can help you to get better control over and delay climax by yourself.
- The Stop-Start Method
In this method, your partner and you have to stimulate your penis at the time just before the ejaculation. And when you are about to climax, you both stop until you get the urge to climax. Repeat this process 3 times and you ejaculate the next time after that.
- Distraction Techniques
In this technique, men perform distracting mental exercises during sex which can increase the lasting hours and improve PE(such as thinking of mundane things like Baseball, work,.). These techniques are probably most useful for men with occasional PE or men who experience PE in the initial stages of a new sexual relationship.
- The Squeeze Method
If someone is in need of instant results then medication is the best way to cure any type of illness and disorders. There are certain creams and drugs that are used for slowing down the ejaculation in men having PE. Some antidepressants—tricyclic antidepressants and selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs)—have the side-effect of delayed ejaculation and are now commonly prescribed by doctors for premature ejaculation. Taking SSRIs can have some side-effects such as decreased libido (sex drive), nausea, sweating, bowel disturbance, and fatigue. Some other medicine to take orally:
- Derantox Capsules 1 mg
- To play Gel 1 mg
- Vigor Max Juice
A sex therapist can educate today’s youth about sex-related issues and also have relationship counseling with men and their partners to work on deteriorating intimacy. With this, they can understand the ejaculatory function and why PE might be happening. Sex therapists can also help men and their partners work on psychological, emotional, and relationship issues, which might have been present for a long time or might be more recent, stemming from PE distress. Therapy focuses on the emotional implications of PE, relationship dynamics, and performance anxiety management.
The best results were seen in men who were motivated, were hopeful, and we’re in a stable monogamous relationship with a cooperative partner.
How Are the Causes of Premature Ejaculation Diagnosed?
The cause of premature ejaculation is diagnosed by a detailed sexual history. To diagnose PE, doctors usually ask questions such as:
- How long has PE been a problem? When did it start?
- What is the length between the partner’s penetration and ejaculation?
- How much control does a man have on ejaculation?
- How distressed does he feel about the situation?
- How distressed does his partner feel?
- Are there any psychological, emotional, or relationship issues of concern?
A complete physical examination of the male genital organs is very important for the diagnosis of any sexual problem in men.
An internationally recognized scientific scale known as a premature education diagnostic tool is very useful in diagnosing the severity of premature ejaculation.
If you want to know whether you are suffering from premature ejaculation, you can take the exam on SELF TEST PREMATURE EJACULATION on the IASH website.
Facts About Premature Ejaculation
Premature ejaculation is the most common male sexual problem and affects men of all ages.
- Premature ejaculation is more common in younger people.
- This is because ejaculation generally takes longer as men get older and younger men may be less sexually experienced or feel less secure with the situation in which they are having sex.
- Estimating the prevalence of PE is difficult since many men do not want to talk about it, while others may not even perceive that they have PE.
- However, recent research indicates that 25-30% of men struggle with PE.
- PE can happen at any age and its prevalence is witnessed across all age groups.
