Premature Ejaculation (PE) is defined by a man persistently reaching an orgasm and unwillingly ejaculating during, on or before sexual activity. There’s no definite time to consider as ‘premature’, but most sources cite a duration of under 4 minutes. At Noah, our online medical evaluation takes 5 minutes, that’s a relatively good gauge, get started here.
PE is caused by physiological, psychological reasons or a combination of both.
For physiological reasons, chemical imbalance in parts of the brain responsible for reaching orgasm can result in PE with less to no stimulation.
For psychological reasons, performance anxiety is a common cause. This usually arises from your own personal fears and worries surrounding sex, and may place unnecessary pressures for you to perform to the best of your ability.
In Singapore, the prescription oral medication for PE contains the active substance, dapoxetine, which belongs to a class of medicines known as Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors (SSRIs).
These medicines are used to treat anxiety and depression, while for PE, it helps to boost serotonin levels in the body, leading to a delayed reaction in parts of the brain which control ejaculation, prolonging the time taken to reach orgasm. This prescription-only pill is usually taken 1-3 hours before sexual activity.
Most men find the prescription PE medication very effective, however, some may experience more successful responses than others. For many, it may take some time before noticing results, although some men have reported immediate results. However, it has been scientifically proven that SSRIs are clinically effective and safe for use as on-demand PE treatment.
In general, prescription oral ED medication is considered very effective for a majority of men. However, everyone’s reaction to a treatment is unique, ED medication that works for you might not work for the next guy.
