Premature ejaculation is defined as the involuntary ejaculation of the person with limited sexual stimulation before or just after the penis enters the vagina, and this event causes significant distress in the person. Premature ejaculation is a common occurrence among men. Although there are differences between the estimates, it is thought that approximately one out of every three men has encountered this problem during their lifetime. Although the question of what causes premature ejaculation attracts a lot of attention, it is not a cause for concern unless it happens frequently. Although a full definition of premature ejaculation cannot be made, it can be diagnosed as premature ejaculation if the following characteristics are observed in the person:
Ejaculation that always occurs approximately 1 minute after vaginal penetration, or for most intercourse
Failure to delay ejaculation after vaginal penetration or until vaginal penetration
Avoiding sexual intercourse due to stress and anxiety
Types of premature ejaculation
We answered the question of what is premature ejaculation, and before we move on to its causes, it is necessary to know that there are types of premature ejaculation. It is divided into 4 classes.
Lifelong premature ejaculation: This type of premature ejaculation is observed with the first sexual activity and continues throughout life. It is the least common type of premature ejaculation in the general population. Studies conducted in China and Turkey report that it is observed between 2.3 and 3.2% in the general population.
Acquired premature ejaculation: It is a more common problem. It can occur as a result of a physiological or psychological change. It is observed between 3.9% and 4.2% of the general population.
Variable premature ejaculation: It is the most common type of premature ejaculation. It is seen in 8.5-11.4% of the general population. The person experiences normal ejaculation from time to time and premature ejaculation from time to time.
Sensory (Subjective) premature ejaculation: In this type, the person does not really have a problem with premature ejaculation, but thinks that he has premature ejaculation due to cultural and psychological reasons. The incidence rate in the general population is between 5.1% and 6.4%.
