Answer

Consultation with a sex therapist, psychologist, or psychiatrist may prove helpful if the primary care physician or urologist cannot provide successful treatment or does not have the time to explore psychological issues and implement behavioral techniques (eg, squeeze-pause). If the primary care physician or urologist is inexperienced or uncomfortable with treating premature ejaculation, early referral to a sex therapist, psychologist, or psychiatrist is indicated.
