What causes Premature Ejaculation?
print icon
  • The cause of premature ejaculation isn’t fully understood.
  • For a long time it was thought to be purely psychological, but now we know there can be physical factors too.
  • Psychological factors include poor self esteem or body image, depression, stress, anxiety, guilt, relationship problems, or a history of early or abusive sexual experiences.
  • If a man is worried about previous premature ejaculation, this can also increase the likelihood of it happening again. And if a man has a history of erectile dysfunction, he may tend to rush things at times, leading to premature ejaculation on other occasions.
  • Physical causes can include abnormalities of certain hormone levels, as well as infection or inflammation of the urethra or prostate gland.
