PE (short for Premature Ejaculation) is a common medical condition, affecting up to 37% of men.
It is characterised by:
- Inability to delay climax
- Ejaculating within 1 minute during sex
- Stress and avoidance of intimacy as a result
As for the cause, an exact trigger isn't known – the latest view is a combination of psychological and biological factors. Of concern is that in those who suffer from PE, 74% report lifelong symptoms.
The good news is, however, is that can be treated. The best place to start is by talking to a doctor (and you can do that here, via the Pilot platform).
