Premature Ejaculation is No Laughing Matter

Premature Ejaculation (PE) is the most prevalent sexual dysfunction in America

Premature Ejaculation

The incidents of PE are more prevelant than ED. PE is defined as when a man experiences climax and ejaculates shortly after making penetration.

Why does it happen?

Unfortunately, the medical and scientific communities are uncertain as to the causes of PE, though many theories exist. All the theories are of psychology in origin and include: masturbation practices during puberty, anxiety, unresolved feelings involving frequency of sex--but no theory has been scientifically proven as to the cause.

Like ED, PE most likely does not have one singular cause, but rather many contributing factors. One thing is clear: once it happens the feeling of emasculation and embarrassment make it a near certainty of occurring again.    


The International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems (ICD-10) defines PE as ejaculating with inability to control within 15 seconds after engaging in intercourse. The 2007 ICD-10 defined PE as ejaculating without control, and within around 15 seconds. PE is diagnosed through verbal and written exams without any diagnostic equipment.

What is the real problem PE or loss of erection?

Most men complaining about PE say that the problem is that shortly, sometimes less than a minute, after beginning intercourse they orgasm and ejaculate. The problem is that they climax too soon, but is that really the issue?

Most women are fine with their partner orgasming before them, so long as they continue afterwards. Women consider PE less of a problem than men. The shame of PE causes many men emotional stress and some simply avoid sexual relationships.

Often, it is the sudden loss of erection after orgasm that is the source of frustration, not necessarily climaxing too soon. Prescription ED pills or another ED solution may help to maintain an erection for multiple orgasms, and thus performing long enough to satisfy your partner.

Solve your premature ejaculation, once and for all

Multiple treatment options, TMH has a solution that will work for YOU

  1. DECREASE SENSITIVITY - Often, topical numbing medications are effective in delaying orgasm and prolonging intercourse. The medication, usually a cream, is applied directly to the head of the penis no less than 10 minutes before intercourse. These medications are affordable and safe (there are no systemic side effects).
  2. LAST LONGER - The loss of erection after a short-lived attempt at intercourse can be more frustrating than the actual PE. TMH has solutions to help sustain an erection, not just numb and decrease sensitivity.
  3. REJUVENATE PENILE TISSUE- TMH is Knoxville's leading provider of male enhancement Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy. Find out how PRP can reverse damage caused by age, disease, or medications.
