You’re not alone. PE may be the most common sexual disorder for men. Some studies estimate that 1 in 3 men have PE.

Premature ejaculation is defined as consistently ejaculating with minimal stimulation before or during sex. Men with PE have little or no control over when they ejaculate, causing distress for both themselves and their partners.

Some men supplement prescription medicines with behavioral techniques that involve pausing or squeezing when feeling the urge to ejaculate. The most effective way to treat PE is often a combination of medicine, techniques and behavioral practices.
