ERECTILE DYSFUNCTION (ED)
Viagra®, Levitra® and Cialis®” cannot solve all ED (erectile dysfunction) problems and many patients have suffered unpleasant side-effects. In fact, a recent research article published by the International Journal of Impotency Research concluded that “More than 50% of the 30 million men who have tried Viagra® haven’t gone back.”

- Peyronie’s disease—development of scar tissue inside the penis
- Certain prescription medications

PREMATURE EJACULATION (PE)
Premature ejaculation (PE) is uncontrolled ejaculation either before or shortly after sexual penetration. It may occur with minimal sexual stimulation and likely before the person wishes. The resulting unsatisfactory sexual experience for both partners may increase the anxiety that then compounds the problem. PE is one of the most common forms of male sexual dysfunction and has probably affected every man at some point in his life.
The exact cause of premature ejaculation is not known. While it was once thought to be only psychological, doctors now know premature ejaculation involves a complex interaction of psychological and biological factors.
Psychological factors that might play a role include:
- Early sexual experiences
- Sexual abuse
- Poor body image
- Worrying about premature ejaculation
- Guilty feelings that increase your tendency to rush through sexual encounters
Other factors that can play a role include:
- Men who are anxious about obtaining or maintaining an erection during sexual intercourse might form a pattern of rushing to ejaculate, which can be difficult to change.
- Many men with premature ejaculation also have problems with anxiety — either specifically about sexual performance or related to other issues.
- Emotional or mental strain in any area of your life can play a role in premature ejaculation, limiting your ability to relax and focus during sexual encounters.
- If you have had satisfying sexual relationships with other partners in which premature ejaculation happened infrequently or not at all, it’s possible that interpersonal issues between you and your current partner are contributing to the problem.
- Abnormal levels of brain chemicals called neurotransmitters
- Inflammation and infection of the prostate or urethra
Premature ejaculation can cause problems in your personal life, including:
- A common complication of premature ejaculation is relationship stress.
- Premature ejaculation can occasionally make fertilization difficult for couples who are trying to have a baby if ejaculation doesn’t occur vaginally.
