Premature ejaculation is most commonly defined as the inability to control the rapidity or timing of ejaculation. It can also be defined as the inability to last long enough to satisfy your partner or not being happy with the length of time you last. These symptoms are diagnosed and treated by the Urology Division of Premier Medical Group.
Premature ejaculation is a fairly common complaint. Approximately 40% of American men are affected by this form of erectile dysfunction, a larger number than are troubled by impotence. More common in younger men, premature ejaculation can be devastating for the man and frustrating for his partner.
