Premature Ejaculation

Premature ejaculation is in the first place among the sexual dysfunctions seen in the men around the world. The intimacy of the subject and the personalization of this problem by our male patients, transform the premature ejaculation into a factor that reduces the quality of life and negatively affects the social and private life of the person.

It is known that there may be many different factors causing premature ejaculation. Physical or psychological problems cause men to ejaculate during the sexual intercourse sooner than anticipated, and thus to feel strange from their partners over time.

What is premature ejaculation?


Before the sexual intercourse or right after the sexual intercourse, against man’s desire; to ejaculate in an uncontrolled way is defined as “premature ejaculation”. It can be considered that there is a problem of “premature ejaculation” when there is a matter of involuntary ejaculation within a minute after having sexual intercourse.

This sexual dysfunction that prevents both women and men from having sexual satisfaction, may affect men at different levels in different periods of their lives.

Premature ejaculation should not be considered only as a physiological problem. At the same time, it should not be also considered as a sexual problem that affects only man. The fact that premature ejaculation may harm the couples’ private life can’t be denied.

Premature ejaculation is not a shameful or incurable problem!

If premature ejaculation is treated; it is a condition that can be controlled and delayed. I would like to remind that if our patients are treated for premature ejaculation, they can get rid of the effects of this problem. Premature ejaculation is a shameful or incurable problem! However, if the treatment process is not started, it may have negative effects on sexual and family life.

By the way, I’d like to present significant information about premature ejaculation;

If you are having a problem of premature ejaculation, be sure that you are not alone. As a result of a scientific research made by Mayo Clinic, it’s shown that one out of every three men having sexual relationship has a problem of premature ejaculation.

If you are having a problem of premature ejaculation from time to time, this situation can’t be considered as “premature ejaculation”. Men may have sexual problems for different reasons during different periods throughout their lives. If premature ejaculation is repeated over continuously within a period of six months, then the existence of a problem can be mentioned.

In some cases, even though the ejaculation period of men is not within the accepted range of premature ejaculation, it can be assumed that they have a problem of premature ejaculation because of their partner’s delayed satisfaction periods. In this case, precautions should be taken to delay the ejaculation time.

Importance of the treatment of premature ejaculation

It is not easy to share the sexual problems and even to take a step in order to solve them in the societies where sexuality is considered as a taboo. However, if these issues are ignored, as we have already mentioned, they may cause many negativities in the lives of couples.

The treatment of premature ejaculation revitalizes couples’ relationships, helps to regain self-confidence, and makes it possible to achieve satisfaction both physically and psychologically. Differences between the sexual satisfaction achievement periods of women and men; become more evident with the problem of premature ejaculation. For this reason, man’s ejaculation period needs to be extended as much as possible. Sexuality is a special experience between two people and it becomes meaningful by the satisfaction of both sides equally. For this reason, men and their spouses experiencing premature ejaculation should take measures in order to solve this problem.

We determine exclusive treatment options by having detailed conversations with our patients who consult us with the problem of premature ejaculation. Sometimes we only suggest to change their lifestyle; and sometimes we pass to the medical treatments as a result of the examinations.
