Acquired premature ejaculation means that the condition began in an individual who previously experienced an acceptable level of ejaculatory control and, for unknown reasons, began experiencing premature ejaculation later in life. Acquired premature ejaculation is not related to a general medical disorder and usually is not related to substance inducement, though in rare cases, hyperexcitability might be associated with a psychotropic drug and resolve when the drug is withdrawn.
