Category


Sexual Disorders and Dysfunctions

 

Etiology


Medical Causes must be ruled out first.  Relationship stress, novelty of a relationship, anxiety, issues related to control and intimacy can all play a role in the development of this disorder.

 

Symptoms


Ejaculation with minimal sexual stimulation before or shortly after penetration and before the person wishes it. The condition is persistent or occurs frequently and causes significant distress. Is not a direct effect of substance use.

 

Treatment


Relaxation training, education, and working through underlying issues are treatment options. If the relationship is new, often the difficulties will resolve as the relationship matures.

 

Prognosis


Good.
