Premature ejaculation is uncontrolled ejaculation either before or shortly after sexual penetration. It happens with minimal sexual stimulation and before the person wish.
According to the European Association of Urology (EAU), the aetiology of PE is unknown, with few data to support suggested biological and psychological hypotheses, including anxiety and penile hypersensitivity.
Premature ejaculation may occur with a new partner. It may happen only in certain sexual situations or if it has been a long time since the last ejaculation.
