Which doctor to go to for premature ejaculation?

It is important to note that, in the vast majority of cases, there is no physical cause for premature ejaculation. Therefore,often patients arereferred to a psychologist or sexologist. And sometimes also helped by medication. The advantage of the urologist is that he works in a multidisciplinary environment with different specialists who collaborate in the treatment of the same patient (psychologist, psychiatrist, sexologist, body therapist, etc.).

What is the relationship between premature ejaculation and erectile dysfunction?

There is often confusion between erectile dysfunction and premature ejaculation. These two diseases are different, but are sometimes linked. When a patient suffers from erectile dysfunction, they can also have premature ejaculation. Since the patient knows that he will not be able to maintain an erection for more than 1 or 2 minutes, the patient ejaculates prematurely. But not all premature ejaculators have erectile dysfunction, far from it. They just have a hard time controlling their arousal.

Does the couple have to accompany the patient to the doctor?

Yes, it is advisable. Premature ejaculation has an impact on the sexual satisfaction of both members of the couple. The partner can help describe the problem. During some consultations, you may also find that both partners have sexual expectations that are too high … or different. An interview with the couple can help clear things up!
