Premature Ejaculation and Fertility Issues

Issues in the bedroom can quickly grow beyond the bedroom for many couples.

If you’re in a committed relationship, issues around sex may feel even more weighty when you add in the idea of starting a family. And if you’re living with premature ejaculation — one of the most common sexual dysfunctions in men that affects more than 30% of men worldwide — you might feel like it’s further complicating matters.

But it doesn’t have to. Communication is key, and so is education. Here are some answers to your most important questions around premature ejaculation and family matters like fertility and pregnancy.

Can Premature Ejaculation Cause Infertility?

According to the Mayo Clinic, up to 15 percent of couples are infertile — and in more than a third of those couples, male infertility plays a role.  However, premature ejaculation alone does not cause male infertility — unless, of course, a man ejaculates before he is able to achieve vaginal penetration.

The mechanics of ejaculation are quite separate from those that control the production of sperm, which fertilizes eggs in a woman’s body and leads to pregnancy.

Male infertility arises from several types of health issues, including:

  • Sperm production problems: including chromosomal or genetic issues, undescended testes, infections, or problems stemming from medicines or chemicals

  • Sperm-transport blockage: caused by infections, prostate issues, vasectomy, or absence of the vas deferens

  • Hormonal problems: including pituitary issues and steroid use

Some erectile and ejaculatory dysfunction do play a role in male infertility, including retrograde ejaculation, failure to ejaculate entirely (anejaculation), and inability to hold an erection (erectile dysfunction).

If you and your partner have been trying to conceive without success, speak to your doctor to be tested for fertility.

Can Premature Ejaculation Cause Pregnancy?

The only thing that needs to happen for a woman to get pregnant is sperm successfully fertilizing an egg. A woman getting pregnant has nothing to do with how long sexual intercourse lasts. Whether you ejaculate in less than a minute or can go all night (we’ll have what you’re having), it’s the strength of your sperm that really counts where pregnancy is concerned.

So yes, premature ejaculation can cause pregnancy.

If you are hoping to start or grow your family, congratulations! The question of how long sex should last to get pregnant is an easy one: as long as it takes the male partner to ejaculate. Granted, it may take a few tries for sperm to successfully fertilize an egg — but that’s the fun part.

Want a few stats? A German study published in the journal Human Reproduction asked 346 women using “natural family planning practices” to monitor how many ovulation cycles it took for them to get pregnant (notice there’s no mention of how long it took their partners to ejaculate):

  • 38 percent were pregnant after 1 month

  • 68 percent were pregnant after 3 months

  • 81 percent were pregnant after 6 months

  • 92 percent were pregnant after 12 months

Trying to conceive - with premature ejaculation

However, there’s no reason both parties in a committed couple shouldn’t also enjoy their sex life while trying to conceive!

If you’re experiencing premature ejaculation but have an otherwise normal sexual function (including good sperm counts), consider experimenting with some ejaculation-delay techniques or over-the-counter premature-ejaculation products to help those love-making sessions last a little longer.

Premature ejaculation vs. 'pre-cum'

All the above information also means that if you and your sexual partner aren’t trying to make a baby, you need to use some form of birth control or contraceptive every time.

Some couples — particularly those who engage in the “pull-out” method of birth control — are concerned about women getting pregnant from so-called “pre-cum,” also known as pre-ejaculate. (We don’t recommend this birth-control method, by the way, if you’re serious about not getting pregnant.)

The specific rate of pregnancies that result from pre-ejaculate only is unknown, but because pre-ejaculate contains dead sperm (or no sperm at all), it’s incredibly rare.
