Is There A Cure for Premature Ejaculation?

Don't be fooled by claims of products that can cure premature ejaculation. Just like there is no cure for erectile dysfunction, there is no premature ejaculation cure.  Like ED, however, you can learn to manage and control your premature ejaculation.

Review of Medical Research on Premature Ejaculation

Premature ejaculation is a common sexual dysfunction, affecting approximately 30% of men. Many men who may not have clinically diagnosed premature ejaculation want to last longer during sex. To satisfy this need, physicians, hospitals and pharmaceutical companies have been trying find a cure for PE for decades.  Take a look at the articles published in medical journals about PE, just since 2007, many of them in search of a cure for premature ejaculation or reviewing the current state of medical treatment for PE.

Of all this research (and there's much more), none of them mention a premature ejaculation cure and only two solutions have shown any consistency in improving PE:

  • Dopoxetine - it's a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI), an anti-depressant with all the associated side effects.  Read more>>
  • PSD502 - a very effective topical spray similar to Promescent but not available in many parts of the world including the US.  Read more>>

Selected Articles from Medical Journals about PE

You can find all of these articles at the US National Library of Medicine and are published on-line at the National Center for Bio-technology Information (NCBI).  For additional resources, visit our Premature Ejaculation Medical Information web pages.
