High Estrogen and Premature Ejaculation

Since going through puberty, you’ve felt the effects of hormones on your body, from changes in your physical appearance and voice to your sex drive. But even as we age, hormones continue to ebb and flow, creating new and different reactions within our bodies.

For men who experience premature ejaculation (PE), hormones could be partially to blame. So, can high levels of estrogen cause premature ejaculation? The answer is more complex than just a yes or no.

While high estrogen may be a cause of premature ejaculation there are other reasons you could be experiencing PE as well. Learn about all the causes of premature ejaculation in detail.

Estrogen and Men's Health

We don’t talk about it much, but estrogen plays a big role in men’s health. And when something is awry with our hormones, our bodies tend to let us know.

If you’re experiencing premature ejaculation, know that it’s not caused directly by too much estrogen in your body — but it could be linked to your body’s production of estrogen, which may be related to one of many factors, including:

  • Obesity

  • Enlarged prostate

  • Diabetes

  • Excessive alcohol consumption

  • Aging (approaching the onset of andropause, or so-called “male menopause”)

  • Other factors

If any of the above factors sound like you — and you’re also experiencing premature ejaculation — it’s a good idea to call your physician for a check-up.

Still curious about how hormones like estrogen can affect men’s sex drive and performance? Let’s start with some basics that you might have forgotten from Biology class.

What's a Hormone Again?

Hormones are secretions that our glands produce to create a response, or stimulation, in certain tissues and cells. Think of them as super powerful and fast messengers that travel from one spot to another in the body.

Hormones essentially tell one block of tissues what to do as a means of automatic response. Instead of thinking “repair that part of the foot we just bruised,” our hormones provide responses that do the thinking (and acting) for us.

For example, one hormone you probably know is “adrenaline,” which is produced by our adrenal glands. Adrenaline helps our bodies and minds focus on self-preservation when an emergency happens, like during a bear attack or a car accident. Adrenaline gets your heart beating fast and your muscles tense in preparation for that old “fight or flight” response.

Hormones and Sex

When you experience something sexually pleasing, you can thank hormones for your arousal response. During puberty, that response may have varied from a blush in the cheeks to some more obvious reactions like getting an erection in English class.

Women and men have gender-specific, hormone-producing organs (the ovaries and the testes), but each of these organs produces both estrogen and testosterone.

Estrogen tells a woman’s body to grow pubic hair, increase breast tissue, or send blood to the clitoris. It rises and falls during a woman’s lifetime, largely increasing during pregnancy and decreasing during menopause.

Testosterone, on the other hand, tells a man’s body to get taller, develop muscles, produce sperm, and maintain the libido.

Estrogen in Men

In men, the testes produce both testosterone and trace amounts of estrogen. Estrogen acts as a balancing agent to the testosterone, and when that balance is disrupted, health issues can arise.

Too little estrogen and men risk bone issues like osteoporosis. Too much can lead to prostate conditions, including prostate cancer, as well as more minor physical changes like increased breast tissue, or decreased libido and erectile dysfunction.

In 2013, researchers at Massachusetts General Hospital published findings in the New England Journal of Medicine that when men were deprived of both testosterone and estrogen, the effects varied depending on each subject’s age, body mass, and more.

According to the study, low estrogen contributes to the sexual dysfunction and low libido that most men blame on low testosterone — and the study showed that a healthy range of testosterone for each person should be dependent on the individual body tissue or system.

Testosterone in Men

If the testes produce too little testosterone, then factors could be issues with testosterone production by the gonads, or it could just be the natural changes that occur with age.

The Society of Endocrinology notes that “low testosterone levels can cause mood disturbances, increased body fat,  loss of muscle tone, inadequate erections, and poor sexual performance, osteoporosis, difficulty with concentration, memory loss and sleep difficulties.”

If you’re experiencing any of these symptoms, you may want to talk to your doctor, or a specialist like an endocrinologist, to see what actions you can take.
