PREMATURE EJACULATION (EARLY-FAST-RAPID EJACULATION)


Ejaculation can be used for defining throwing out and spurting (ejaculation) semen (ejaculate, semen) together with orgasm experienced at the end of sexual intercourse in men. Ejaculation disorders may arise either based on organic or psychological causes and a number of drugs may lead to ejaculation dysfunction. 

In urbanized society, approximately one of three men experiences this dysfunction and it is considered that it is the most frequently seen sexual dysfunction among men. Premature ejaculation is not to be compared with erection insufficiency. (erectile dysfunction, impotence). After ejaculation, penis becomes soft, it is a normal situation and for a while and penis does get hard again. This case is called "refractory period" and men perceive this as erectile insufficiency.

Definition of premature ejaculation and what normal-abnormal limit is may not be easily based on conclusive objective criteria. For this reason, some criteria have been strived to be found out for definition of premature ejaculation.


 • Occurrence of ejaculation before 15 in-out movements made for vagina,  lack of women orgasm or ejaculation of male in at least half of sexual intercourse before women. 
 • Ejaculation when male sexual organ enters into vagina or ejaculation just before it, ejaculation within 7 minutes after male sexual organ enters into vagina.
