What causes premature ejaculation?
Premature ejaculation is a very common condition that occurs when a male ejaculates during sexual activity sooner than sexual partners would like. The Mayo Clinic estimates that 1 in 3 men experience this sexual problem at some time. There is no single cause of premature or early ejaculation. It is usually not a cause for concern, but some individuals may experience rapid ejaculation frequently enough to cause sexual dysfunction in their relationship. Some common psychological factors that may cause premature ejaculation are:
- Performance anxiety
- Little sexual experience
In addition to psychological factors, there may be several medical conditions that cause premature ejaculation. These conditions include:
- Erectile dysfunction
- Low serotonin levels
Premature ejaculation is very common and is not usually a risk factor in sexual health. In some cases, premature ejaculation can affect a couple's sex life and lead to stress. Persistent and lifelong premature ejaculation may result in depression and anxiety around sexual intercourse.
