Premature ejaculation, like ED, is a non‐life‐threatening but often psychologically devastating medical condition having serious consequences on quality of life that adversely affects intimate relationships and marital harmony. It can result in isolation, resentment, arguments, silent suffering, and separation and divorce. There is even evidence that PE may lead to sexual dysfunction in the partners of men with ED.
Some couples present for care when they are unable to conceive because the man has an orgasm before he can place the penis in the vagina. This is called anteportal PE. It has been estimated “that between 5% and 20% of men with LPE suffer from anteportal PE.”
