While most people think of erectile dysfunction when they think of sexual disorders that affect men, the fact is that premature ejaculation is much more common in men under the age of 40. It affects between 30 and 70 percent of all men in the US at one time or another, whether on a one time only basis or as a constant, repeating problem. Sometimes things like nervousness, stress, or even distraction could cause the issue to occur. But in other cases, it’s a progressive problem that will begin with a single occurrence and only begin to get worse as time goes on.
The overall progression of premature ejaculation could be physical, but is actually generally a psychologically triggered issue. If you take a close look at the progression, you’ll see that it often causes its own increasing severity.
- Often, PE will begin with a single occurrence. This could be brought on by excitement, nervousness, stress, or any other potential problem. Whatever the cause, it occurs suddenly and unexpectedly.
- The next time a man begins to have sex, the fear of premature ejaculation may be present and could actually cause PE to occur again.
- This sets up a progression wherein a man’s growing fears about PE actually cause it to occur or even trigger erectile dysfunction as well.
In other cases, the issue may present itself sporadically during a period of time and then gradually begin to increase in frequency. At times it’s possible that the issue will occur, vanish for an extended period of time, and then return again while in other cases it may be highly persistent.
As you can tell, it’s hard to chart a specific progression of premature ejaculation due to the fact that there are simply too many different variables. Everything from emotional factors to physical factors could play a role in this issue. Most men will begin looking for male enhancement products that can help them control PE before they even realize what is causing the problem. And while many of these products can help, it’s important to actually spend some time determining the root cause so that the right treatments can be used.
Pinpointing the progression of this problem will vary greatly from person to person, and in many instances it will actually not continue to occur or get worse. But in those instances where it does become an even larger problem, knowing what to expect can help.
