Premature Ejaculation Risk Factors Include:
You may be at increased risk of premature ejaculation if you occasionally or consistently have trouble getting or maintaining an erection. Fear of losing your erection may cause you to consciously or unconsciously hurry through sexual encounters ejaculating within one to two minutes of sexual activity.
A medical concern that causes you to feel anxious during sex, such as a heart problem, may cause you to unknowingly rush resulting in premature ejaculation.
Emotional or mental strain in any area of your life can play a role in premature ejaculation, often limiting your ability to relax and focus during sexual encounters.
Rarely, drugs that influence the action of chemical messengers in the brain (psychotropics) may contribute to premature ejaculation.
1 in 3 men suffer from the condition. According to the Mayo Clinic, the exact cause is unknown. Several factors may contribute to this issue:
- Anxiety – Nervousness
- Behavior Factors
- Biological Factors (abnormal hormones, abnormal neurotransmitters, inflammation, etc)
- Relationship Problems
