What is premature ejaculation?

Premature ejaculation (PE) occurs when a man ejaculates before he or his partner want climax to happen. For some men, the problem starts with their first sexual experience (primary PE). For others, it happens after a period of normal sexual functioning (secondary PE).

PE often becomes a problem for the couple. Many men with PE feel embarrassed, anxious, depressed, and worried about pleasing a partner. Single men sometimes avoid new relationships because of the stress of PE.

What is low testosterone?

Low testosterone, also called hypogonadism, occurs when a man has decreased testosterone levels or when his testes stop producing testosterone altogether.  In men, testosterone is a hormone most commonly associated with sex drive, sperm production, strength, and bone and muscle mass. Men usually have progressive lowering in testosterone levels from the age of 30 – 35 years.

What is erectile dysfunction?

Erectile dysfunction (ED) is a man’s inability to achieve or maintain an erection suitable for satisfactory sex.

To understand ED, it’s important to understand how erections occur. When a man is sexually aroused, nerves and chemicals work together so that the penis can fill with blood. It is this blood that forms the erection. After the man reaches orgasm, the blood is released back into the body. To achieve the erection a man must be in a relaxed (parasympathetic) but aroused state.
