Diagnosis of Premature Ejaculation begins with a determination of it’s source:Primary Premature Ejaculation manifests at the onset of sexual activity, typically at a younger age. The causes of Primary PE often relate to negative emotional experiences that arise in tandem with early sexual activity, including anxiety, guilt, and fear, and/or lack of sufficient sexual education.
Secondary Premature Ejaculation manifests following an established period of normal, healthy sexual activity and capable control. In these cases, periodic or chronic bouts of unsatisfactory orgasm typically result from unresolved stress, anxiety, or negative emotional issues.
Is a form that is very mild andresponds well to a variety of therapeutic, behavioural, and pharmaceutical treatments. It is most often diagnosed in young adults and men who began their sexual activity late. It commonly arises from anxiety and/or poor or absent sexual education.
Is more problematic, although still responds very well to therapy and treatment. It is more commonly found among middle age men and often originates from recent unresolved stresses, including those associated with family or career.
Is a departure from the prior two types, and is both less common and more severe; in many instances, it is caused when Type 2 PE is left untreated. Effective treatment remains available, however a solution may require longer and more intensive therapy.
Is unique in its severity and is often accompanied by additional sexual and emotional health problems. Type 4 Premature Ejaculation is not recommended for standard treatment.
The first thing to know about Premature Ejaculation is that the problem is under reported: experts estimate as many as 1-in-3 Australian men are challenged by at least occasional bouts of PE. If that sounds like a lot of men, it’s because it is and if you are suffering from Premature Ejaculation you should remember one important fact: you are not alone.
Infrequent or mild instances of PE are no cause for alarm: occasional difficulties happen and are typically situation based. However, if your intercourse is frequently or severely interrupted by Premature Ejaculation, or you find yourself avoiding sexual situations in fear of the problem, you should consult with a Men’s Health Clinic specialist physician.

Premature Ejaculation is not something you have to live with and it’s not something you need to endure for the rest of your life. PE is very treatable and you have the capability to restore your happiness, health, and sexual satisfaction.
What are the symptoms of Premature Ejaculation?
The symptoms of PE are relatively easy to determine: if your ability to have satisfactory intercourse is interrupted by an inability to control your orgasm beyond 1-2 minutes, you have a problem with Premature Ejaculation. The severity may be partially determined by the happiness of yourself and your partner with your sexual activity.
Yes. Statistics and research estimates show that PE is under reported, and the actual frequency of occurrence may be as high as 1-in-3 Australian men.
Can Premature Ejaculation develop later in life?
Yes. Natural aging can have a physical impact on your ability to perform, and changes in your life that effect your emotional health, including stress, can also lead to problems with PE. Both of these causes of late-onset PE can be overcome with treatment.
Some medications can lead to difficulty with PE, and different men can have different reactions to the same medication. Overuse or abuse of alcohol and recreational drugs can also trigger problems with Premature Ejaculation. Men’s Health Clinic physicians specialise in studying medications and their impact on our ability to enjoy a satisfactory orgasm.
Premature Ejaculation and Erectile Dysfunction (ED) are very often linked together and there are many cases of men who suffer from both problems simultaneously. In cases where both PE and ED are a problem, treatment typically follows a course that resolves the Erectile Dysfunction first, then moves on to the Premature Ejaculation, because successful treatment of the first may also resolve the second.
Premature Ejaculation that is not confronted and solved can destroy relationships and seriously diminish your happiness and quality of life. It can also provoke serious health problems, including depression and stress-related illnesses and conditions. PE should always be treated to ensure that it does not impact your life and health with more serious consequences.
Yes. Your partner is on the front lines of being affected by and dealing with any sexual health problems you are suffering from, including Premature Ejaculation. Trying to hide the problem, or refusing to face it or talk about it, can lead to lasting frustration, anxiety, depression, and stress. Even the most secure and loving relationship can be destroyed by that combination of challenges. Talk with your partner about your concerns, be honest about the problem, and work together to get the help you need.
