Delayed Ejaculation Q & A

What is delayed ejaculation?

Delayed ejaculation is a man’s difficulty or inability to ejaculate semen during penetrative intercourse lasting longer than 30 minutes. Negative side-effects associated with delayed ejaculation include:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Low libido
  • Sexual dissatisfaction
  • Relationship struggles
  • Inability to start a family

Studies show that an estimated 25% of men are affected by delayed ejaculation at some point in their lives. Unfortunately, it is a long-term condition for some. A male may experience an inability to ejaculate during penetrative intercourse for six months or longer. 

What causes delayed ejaculation?

There are multiple known physical and psychological causes of delayed ejaculation. Examples of physical factors include:

  • Nerve damage
  • Alcohol use
  • Medications
  • Aging

The psychological causes of delayed ejaculation include:

  • Low self-confidence
  • Fear of impregnating a sexual partner 
  • Unexpressed anger
  • Past sexual abuse or trauma 

Delayed ejaculation is also influenced by the masturbation pattern of the male affected. A high frequency of masturbation, a style of masturbation not replicated through sexual intercourse, and a sex partner, unlike traditional masturbation fantasies, are all proven to negatively affect the condition. 

Dr. Rubin focuses primarily on delayed ejaculation that is caused by aging and the decrease of sensitivity men experience in the penis during sexual intercourse. 

What should I expect during a delayed ejaculation consultation?

Dr. Rubin desires that all his patients feel valued and comfortable during assessments at Improving Your Health. He understands that certain health topics may be sensitive due to heightened societal stigmas. 

Upon arrival, Dr. Rubin will conduct blood tests onsite, a physical exam, and ask you a series of questions regarding lifestyle factors, personal and family medical history, and any changes to your quality of life or symptoms of concern.

After completing his assessment, Dr. Rubin will develop a personalized treatment plan for you to eliminate the symptoms of delayed ejaculation. This will be accomplished by narrowing in on the root cause of the condition and treating it with a long-term plan.
