Answer

Erectile dysfunction may be associated with premature ejaculation, and it may be difficult or impossible to establish which condition developed first. [19] For lifelong premature ejaculation, associations with certain anxiety disorders have been noted. For acquired premature ejaculation, associations with drug withdrawal, thyroid disease, and prostatitis have been found. [18]
