Answer

If the patient has erectile dysfunction that began after premature ejaculation, treatment of both conditions may be required; in some cases, the erectile difficulty resolves once the patient gains confidence in his ability to control ejaculation. If erectile dysfunction developed first, premature ejaculation may be a secondary sexual dysfunction; it may resolve when the patient is confident of being able to maintain his erection.
