Symptoms And Causes Of Premature Ejaculation
The main symptom of premature ejaculation is when one is not able to delay ejaculation for more than three minutes after penetration. It can happen in any kind of sex situation including masturbation.
A. Psychological causes
3. History of sexual repression (negative feeling about the idea of sex).
4. Lack of confidence
5. Relationship problems
6. Early sexual experience
B. Hormonal Imbalance
Serotonin: The body naturally produces serotonin through the nerves. The time it takes to ejaculate is lengthened by high levels of serotonin in the brain. Low doses can speed up the ejaculation process and cause PE.
A physiological issue that affects oxytocin levels which are important for a man’s sexual performance. Luteinizing hormone (LH), prolactin, and thyroid stimulating hormone are other hormone levels that affect sexual performance.
C. Infection: Inflammation or an infection in the prostate or urethra.
D. Age: Men of any age can experience PE. Even though aging alters erections and ejaculation, it does not directly cause PE. Erection may not be as strong or as long in elderly men. It might take less time for erection to end before ejaculation starts. There might be a shorter period of anticipation before ejaculation occurs. An older guy may start ejaculating early as a result of these changes.
Risk Factors Of Premature Ejaculation
Many factors can increase the risk of premature ejaculation.
Erectile dysfunction: If a person is having trouble getting or keeping an erection, he is at increased risk of premature ejaculation. One might hurry through sex because of fear of losing an erection.
Stress: Emotional or mental strain can limit the ability to relax and focus during sex. This can play role in premature ejaculation.
Classification Of Premature Ejaculation
Premature ejaculation can be classified into two types.
Lifelong (primary): Lifelong premature ejaculation occurs nearly every time starting with the first sexual encounter.
Acquired (secondary): Previous sexual experiences occur without any problem in ejaculation, but premature ejaculation develops later.
Pathophysiology Of Premature Ejaculation
Pathophyiology of PE is largely unknown and can cause many changes in the body.
Biological, organ systems directly affected by premature ejaculation:
1. Male reproductive tract (penis, prostate, seminal vesicle, testicles, and their appendages)
2. Portion of central and peripheral nervous system controlling male reproductive tracts
3. Reproductive organ systems of sexual partner that may not be stimulated sufficiently
4. Hyposensitivity of 5-HT2C receptor, hypersensitivity of 5-HT1A/5-HT2B receptor, hypersensitivity of the glans, psychosocial and relational factors, etc.
