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.

Around 1 in 10 UK young people report distressing sex problems
Wed, 03 Aug 2016 22:30:00 +0800 | NHS News Feed
Conclusion The survey results show that sexual problems are relatively common among young people. The findings are perhaps not surprising, but suggest an unmet need for advice and support around sexual function and enjoyment, as well as the more traditional concerns of preventing unwanted pregnancy and infections. Sex education is not compulsory for non-maintained schools in the UK, although pressure is mounting to make it so. Much traditional sex education focuses on contraception and safer sex practices. There have long been calls for sex education to also include discussions of sexual pleasure and what makes for a happy sex life. Previous research has found that young people with good sexual function are more likely to protect themselves against sexually transmitted infections and unw...

By Drs. David Niesel and Norbert Herzog, Medical Discovery News Some who use kratom to ease their withdrawal symptoms from heroin addiction are discovering that this is also an addictive drug that can reignite the cravings for the heroin they are trying hard to conquer.

Kratom is legal in most states and is sold under a variety of names. It is available in powdered form at head shops, convenience stores and online.
