Premature ejaculation is the commonest disorder of men aged less than 40, with at least 30% of men experiencing the problem. It is defined as persistent ejaculation before the wishes of both partners. It can happen for many reasons including anxiety, but rarely has a serious cause.
Pain on ejaculation can be associated with prostatitis, and retrograde can be due to prostate surgery such as TURP or due to a problem of nerve control of ejaculation (a common cause of this may be diabetes).
A careful assessment is usually all that is required in all men with ejaculation problems.
