Premature ejaculation (PE) is a common sexual dysfunction that affects men of all ages. It is defined as ejaculating before or shortly after sexual penetration, and it can cause distress and relationship problems.
The exact cause of PE is not fully understood, but it is thought to be a combination of psychological and biological factors. Psychological factors such as anxiety, depression, and stress can contribute to PE, as can certain medical conditions like high blood pressure, thyroid problems, and prostate infections.
PE is also thought to have a genetic component, as it tends to run in families. In addition, some men may develop PE as a result of certain medications, such as antidepressants, or because of certain lifestyle factors, such as smoking or excessive alcohol consumption.
