What does premature ejaculation mean for men, and how can it be controlled more effectively?
While occasional experiences of premature ejaculation are not cause for concern, they can strain your relationships and sex life.
Male orgasm is usually accompanied by ejaculation, controlled by the central nervous system. Some men experience an orgasm before ejaculation or experience a climax without actually ejaculating semen, called premature ejaculation.
The average time it takes men to ejaculate after sexual contact is 5 minutes. There is no set time, so it can range from under one minute to over 30 minutes, depending on the individual. Sometimes, you may ejaculate too early, which is not a cause for concern.
A medical diagnosis of premature ejaculation is made when early ejaculation becomes problematic, for example, when you ejaculate before penetration or right after.

In addition to primary (lifelong) premature ejaculations, secondary (acquired) premature ejaculations are also possible. People who suffer from primary premature ejaculation experience it during their first sexual activities, while those who suffer from acquired premature ejaculation develop it throughout their lives.
Many underlying problems can result in premature ejaculation, including prostatitis (inflammation of the prostate gland), erectile dysfunction, or thyroid problems.
