Ejaculation refers to the expulsion of semen from the penis when you reach an orgasm. And premature ejaculation is when orgasm and subsequent ejaculation happen sooner than you or your partner would like. This condition affects 30% to 40% of the male population aged between 18 and 59.
Generally speaking, the average calculated time men ejaculate during sexual intercourse is 4-8 minutes. But in the case of premature ejaculation, you reach the climax anywhere between 15 seconds and one minute of sexual penetration.
Premature ejaculation can be occasional or chronic, depending on the underlying reason. Fortunately, you can treat this issue, even if it is chronic. However, choosing the most suitable treatment is vital, which first requires accurate diagnosis. At EuroMed Clinic in Dubai, we use advanced methods to determine underlying reasons or conditions responsible for your PE. Then our urologists devise a fitting treatment plan based on that diagnosis.

What are the Causes of Premature Ejaculation?
Premature ejaculation can be caused by a myriad of reasons or problems, including physiological and psychological. While many of these problems are temporary, some have a more profound impact that causes long-standing or chronic PE.
Psychological or Emotional Factors
Psychological factors or mental conditions that can cause premature ejaculation include:
- The memory of early unfulfilling sexual experiences
- Worrying about early ejaculation
- Lower self-confidence or poor body image
- Sexual performance anxiety
Although physiological factors are less common, they can still play a significant role in how long you keep yourself from ejaculating when having sex. For instance, you may want to rush through sexual intercourse quickly if you have difficulty maintaining an erection due to erectile dysfunction. Doing so will help you ejaculate before you lose your erection, but your partner wouldn’t reach their climax.
Other physical reasons for premature ejaculation include:
- Abnormal levels of testosterone or other male hormones
- A lack of balance between neurotransmitters
- Inflammation in the prostate or urethra
- Multiple sclerosis
What is involved in the Diagnosis of Premature Ejaculation?
A urologist at our clinic in Dubai will request you to fill in a questionnaire to get a good overview of:
- The duration of the problem
- Premature ejaculation’s regularity
- Any underlying condition
- Past or ongoing medications
- Frequency of sexual encounters with your partner
They may also perform a physical exam and recommend other tests to analyze your testosterone levels, cholesterol and triglyceride, and blood sugar levels.
Treatment Options for Premature Ejaculation
There are several options available to treat premature ejaculation at EuroMed Clinic Dubai. These options include medications, topical anesthetics, and counseling.
One of the ways to treat premature ejaculation is to use Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors (SSRIs). These medicines primarily help address depression. And while doing so, they treat premature ejaculation as a desired byproduct. Urologists also prescribe painkillers and Phosphodiesterase inhibitors to treat PE. These medications are usually recommended with SSRIs.
Our urologist may recommend IntraCavernosal Injection Therapy if oral medications are not helpful. This treatment involves administering erection-inducing injections that relax smooth muscles (muscles that cause the contraction of the penile veins to restrict blood flow in the penis). This increases blood flow in the penile veins and corpora cavernosa, improving the quality of an erection and delaying the climax.
Sometimes, reducing your penis’s sensitivity is all you need to avoid premature ejaculation. Some anesthetic creams and lotions such as Prilocaine and Lidocaine reduce extra sensitivity of your penis to the thrusting motion during sexual intercourse.
Stress and performance anxiety are among the top reasons for premature ejaculation and other types of sexual dysfunction. One of the best ways to deal with this problem is counseling. At EuroMed Clinic in Dubai, we combine counseling with medication for quicker results. Luckily, premature ejaculation is a temporary issue in most cases. So with timely counseling and proper management techniques, you can reclaim the charm of your intimate life.
Premature Ejaculation FAQ’s
Can premature ejaculation be cured automatically?
In many cases, yes. Generally speaking, premature ejaculation happens due to emotional or psychological reasons that you can overcome with the help of counseling or meditation. But if your PE is due to physiological reasons, you will have to discuss a treatment plan with a urologist.
Managing premature ejaculation can be difficult if it is due to chronic diseases such as diabetes or multiple sclerosis. Even so, you can manage such conditions to avoid their adverse impacts, including that on your sexual function.
Does PE get worse with age?
Premature ejaculation can worsen with age if you do not work on the techniques to manage it. Older people are more likely to have both premature ejaculation and erectile dysfunction at the same time, but not when they take care of these conditions with the help of a skilled practitioner.
Can exercise help men with premature ejaculation?
Yes, pelvic floor exercises have been pretty helpful in treating premature ejaculation and erectile dysfunction. Since pelvic floor muscles actively participate in sexual functions, strengthening these muscles can improve your sexual performance and outcome.
Additionally, an active lifestyle can keep premature ejaculation and other sexual problems at bay. Physical exercise improves blood flow and tissue strength in all body parts, including the penis. Not only can this revitalization treat premature ejaculation, but it can also help prevent this issue in the long term.
