Premature Ejaculation (PE), Singapore - Shim Clinic

Premature ejaculation (PE) is the male inability to delay the time it takes from the start of stimulation to when ejaculation occurs. This happens sooner than when he or his partner would like it to occur. It is a psychological mismatch of expectation that causes distress in a male or his partner.

Shim Clinic has a special focus on the diagnosis, and treatment of premature ejaculation.

Sexual activity, involves penile stimulation, which results in orgasm, and the expelling of semen (ejaculation). Minimal penile stimulation, together with a shortened time to reach orgasm, which is difficult to prolong, results in premature ejaculation.

The resulting distress and lack of satisfaction of either partner adds to the sense of premature ejaculation.

The following table is a diagnostic tool to assess if a person has premature ejaculation.
