Ejaculation problems are common sexual problems in men.

If you have a problem with ejaculation, visit your GP, who will discuss the problem with you and may examine you or refer you to a specialist.

Premature ejaculation is the most common ejaculation problem. It’s where the male ejaculates too quickly during sexual intercourse.

A study looking at 500 couples from five different countries found the average time taken to ejaculate during intercourse was around five-and-a-half minutes. However, it’s up to each couple to decide if they’re happy with the time taken – there’s no definition of how long sex should last.

Occasional episodes of premature ejaculation are common and aren’t a cause for concern. However, if you’re finding that around half of your attempts at sex result in premature ejaculation, it might help to get treatment.

Causes of premature ejaculation
Various psychological and physical factors can cause a man to suddenly experience premature ejaculation.

Common physical causes include:

prostate problems
thyroid problems – an overactive or underactive thyroid gland
using recreational drugs
Common psychological causes include:

depression
stress
relationship problems
anxiety about sexual performance (particularly at the start of a new relationship, or when a man has had previous problems with sexual performance)
It’s possible, but less common, for a man to have always experienced premature ejaculation since becoming sexually active. A number of possible causes for this are:

Conditioning – it’s possible that early sexual experiences can influence future sexual behaviour. For example, if a teenager conditions himself to ejaculate quickly to avoid being caught masturbating, it may later be difficult to break the habit.
A traumatic sexual experience from childhood – this can range from being caught masturbating to sexual abuse.
A strict upbringing and beliefs about sex.
Biological reasons – some men may find their penis is extra sensitive.
Treating premature ejaculation
There are a number of things you can try yourself before seeking medical help.

Measures you can try yourself
It can sometimes help to:

masturbate an hour or two before having sex
use a thick condom to help decrease sensation
take a deep breath to briefly shut down the ejaculatory reflex (an automatic reflex of the body during which ejaculation occurs)
have sex with your partner on top (to allow them to pull away when you are close to ejaculating)
take breaks during sex and think about something boring
Couples therapy
If you’re in a long-term relationship, you may benefit from having couples therapy. During these sessions, the therapist will:

encourage couples to explore any relationship issues they have, and give them advice about resolving them
show the couple techniques that can help you “unlearn” the habit of premature ejaculation (the two most popular techniques are the “squeeze” and “stop-go” techniques)
In the squeeze technique, your partner masturbates you, but stops before the point of ejaculation and squeezes the head of your penis for between 10 to 20 seconds. They then let go and wait for another 30 seconds before resuming masturbation. This process is carried out several times before ejaculation is allowed to occur.

The stop-go technique is similar, but your partner doesn’t squeeze your penis. Once you feel more confident about delaying ejaculation, you and your partner can begin to have sex, stopping and starting as required.

These techniques may sound simple, but they require lots of practice.

Antidepressants (SSRIs)
Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) are designed to treat depression, but they also delay ejaculation. SSRIs used for this purpose include:

Some men may experience an improvement as soon as treatment begins. However, you’ll usually need to take the medication for one to two weeks before you notice the full effects.

Side effects of SSRIs are usually mild and should improve after two to three weeks.

Prilogy (Dapoxetine)
An SSRI specifically designed to treat premature ejaculation, known as dapoxetine (Priligy), has now been licensed in the UK. Local NHS authorities can choose to prescribe it on the NHS.

It acts much faster than the SSRIs mentioned above and can be used “on demand”. You’ll usually be advised to take it between one and three hours before sex, but not more than once a day.

Dapoxetine isn’t suitable for all men diagnosed with premature ejaculation. For example, it is not recommended for some men with heart, kidney and liver problems. It can also interact with other medications, such as other antidepressants.

Product Description

What Priligy is and what it is used for

Priligy contains an active substance called ‘dapoxetine’. This belongs to a group of medicines called ‘selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors’ (SSRIs). Priligy may also be known as a ‘urological’ medicine.

Priligy increases the time it takes to ejaculate and can improve the control over the ejaculation. This may reduce the frustration or worry about fast ejaculation.

Priligy is used to treat premature ejaculation in adult men aged 18 to 64 years.

Premature ejaculation is when a man ejaculates with little sexual stimulation and before the man wants. This can cause problems for the man and may cause problems in sexual relationships.

Premature ejaculation is the most common male sexual dysfunction, with more than one in five men affected. It is not dependent on age and affects men of all ages. Most men do not feel comfortable enough to speak to their doctor about it. My Pharmacy provides a discreet, safe and reliable treatment for those suffering from premature ejaculation.

PRILIGY® works by increasing the level of serotonin in the nervous system which may lead to an increase in the time to ejaculation. Premature ejaculation medication like Priligy provides the user with increased control over their ejaculation, increasing the duration of sexual activity by up to 300%.

During your treatment with PRILIGY® you may experience:

• An increased sense of control over ejaculation
• An increase in time to ejaculation
• An increase in sexual satisfaction
• The impression that your premature ejaculation has improved
• A decrease in levels of distress associated with your premature ejaculation
• Priligy can also lead to an increase in sexual confidence and an improvement in the sexual confidence of your partner too.

Some men experience these improvements the first time they use PRILIGY®, while others may need to use PRILIGY® a few times before they notice any changes.

How to take Priligy

The recommended dose is 30 mg. Your doctor may increase the dose to 60 mg. Only take the medicine 1 to 3 hours before sexual activity is anticipated. Do not take this medicine more than once every 24 hours or every day.
Swallow the tablets whole to avoid a bitter taste, with at least one full glass of water. This may help lower your chance of fainting.
This medicine can be taken with or without food.
Avoid alcohol when taking this medicine.
This medicine should not be used by men under 18 or over 65 years of age.

Like all medicines, this medicine can cause side effects, although not everybody gets them.

Stop taking Priligy and see your doctor straight away if:

You have fits (seizures)
You faint or feel light headed when you stand up
You notice any changes in your mood
You have any thoughts of suicide or harming yourself.
If you notice any of the above, stop taking this medicine and see your doctor straight away.

Fainting and low blood pressure

This medicine can make you faint or make your blood pressure drop when you stand up. To help lower the chance of this happening:

Take this medicine with at least one full glass of water.
Do not take this medicine if you are dehydrated (you do not have enough water in your body).
This can happen if:
You have not had anything to drink in the past 4 to 6 hours
You have been sweating for a long time
You have an illness where you have a high temperature, diarrhoea or being sick.
If you feel like you might faint (such as feeling sick, feeling dizzy, light headed, confused, sweaty or an abnormal heart beat), or feel light headed when you stand up, immediately lie down so your head is lower than the rest of your body or sit down with your head between your knees until you feel better. This will stop you from falling and hurting yourself if you do faint.
Do not stand up quickly after you have been sitting or lying down for a long time.
Do not drive or use any tools or machines if you feel faint when taking this medicine.
Tell your doctor if you faint when taking this medicine.
