There can be four types of disturbances in semen ejaculation (i.e. orgasmic discharge)

  • Premature Ejaculation i.e. early discharge or early orgasm.
  • Absent Ejaculation
  • Delayed Ejaculation
  • Retrograde Ejaculation & others


What is Premature Ejaculation?

Premature ejaculation (also known as early discharge or quick orgasm, early fall, Shigra-patan) is one of the most frequent, of sexual disorders in the male and is characterized by sudden ejaculation of the semen, just prior to or immediately after vaginal penetration during intercourse (before one wishes or before he could satisfy the female partner). Approximately 10% to 30% people of all age group suffer with quick semen discharge. Premature or 'before time' in other words, is a condition where the man has no voluntary control over his ejaculation. He is quick on the trigger once he starts the coitus. This is a very frustrating disorders of male sexual function in which man feels totally helpless. This leads to bitterness in husbands & wife relationships. For the man, lack of control of his body functioning leaves him feeling unsure of himself. His pleasure is often decreased by the abrupt early discharge. Eventually his preoccupation with trying to postpone ejaculation will hinder his ability to enjoy himself to sexual pleasure. When a man is, feeling inadequate, and ejaculating fast, the woman will probably be left unsatisfied. Her frustration will only increase the negative pattern. This is an easily treatable condition.

What is normal time of discharge?

In one scientific study European males took approximately ten minutes in discharge whereas Americans took fourteen minutes in getting orgasm.

How common is pre mature ejaculation due to some well-defined internal causes?

Many of the recent studies have proved that, most cases of quick ejaculation are Psychogenic is not correct (which was old belief). In one study by Schwartz & Pirke & colleagues found that in many patients of pme male hormones were deranged. Similarly Colpi et all found that evoked sacral potentials & Bulbocavernosal reflex were hyper-excitable in many patients. Thus psychogenic cause should never be labeled unless Hormonal & other causes have been excluded, by thorough examination, hormones & other tests as mentioned below.

Causes of Premature Ejaculation

There are number of possible causes have been propounded about the causes of premature ejaculation.

  • Hormone Disorder
  • Neurogenic Causes
  • Sex Center disorder i.e. Hyper excitability of sex center
  • Psychogenic i.e psychiatric illness
  • Urogenital Infections
  • Increased penile sensitivity to touch
  • Drug induced many drug cause PME


In following Section we'll discuss these causes in detail:

Hormone Disorder : In recent studies it have been seen that many hormone disorder directly causes premature ejaculation. Additionally hormone disorder may cause other sexual dysfunction, which may secondarily cause early discharge. These hormones are important for normal control on your ejaculation.

Deficiency of neuro-transmitters as serotonin & other have been found to be one of the significant causes of early semen fall.

Urogenital Infections : Any infection of urethra, prostate, epidididymis, seminal vesicle, Orchitis, epididimo-orchitis etc. Leads to irritability of sacro-coccigeal nerves, which govern the function of all these sex organs. This irritability leads to lowers threshold for ejaculation. Thus infections are one of the significant of early orgasm.
