Premature ejaculation is common in young adults below 40 years of age. Most often the underlying causes are psychological like performance anxiety, performance pressure, uncooperative partner or other fears associated with childhood unpleasant experiences related to sex.
However, this problem can easily be controlled by identifying any problems. Counseling may be necessary in the presence of partner. A thorough physical e examination by a qualified doctor to rule out any pathological conditions of the genitalia may also be necessary. Please consult your doctor for the examination and also a sexual health specialist for necessary examination and management. Thank you.
