Answer

Medical treatment for premature (early) ejaculation includes several options. Any serious primary medical condition (eg, angina) should be treated; for the purposes of the following discussion, the patient is assumed to be healthy, and premature ejaculation is assumed to be his only problem. In addition, any accompanying erection problem (eg, erectile dysfunction) should be treated; various methods are available, and excellent success can be expected. Accordingly, treatment of concomitant erectile dysfunction (ED) is mentioned only in passing. [21]
