Are erectile dysfunction and premature ejaculation the same?admin
There is some confusion regarding these conditions, premature ejaculation (PE) and erectile dysfunction (ED). The two conditions are linked by the fact that they are related to sex and are experienced by people who are genetically male – however, while they are connected in these ways, they are quite different. Erectile dysfunction and premature ejaculation may affect a large portion of the population. If you or someone you know has either one of these conditions, it’s important to understand the difference in order to know which treatment might work best
What is erectile dysfunction (ED)?
Erectile dysfunction is the condition of not being able to gain or sustain an erection that is either hard enough or lasts long enough to have sex with.
This can be caused by both psychological and physiological problems, and while there is a preconception that it is mainly experienced by older men, our research recently found that half of men in their 30s regularly experience it. 31% of those who had experienced the condition said that they had broken up with a partner due to the issue, and 23% said they would feel uncomfortable discussing it with a GP.
There are various prescription treatments that can be used to counter erectile dysfunction, and Viagra Connect is available to buy over the omsdelhi counter.
What is premature ejaculation (PE)?
Premature ejaculation is the condition where a person cannot control their ejaculation either before or during sex. The generally-accepted definition is that if someone cannot delay their ejaculation for longer than 2 minutes, they have premature ejaculation. This is just a commonly-agreed number though, and it is down to individuals and couples to decide what is “too quick” and what is “long enough”.
There are two kinds of premature ejaculation: primary premature ejaculation, where someone has always had the condition, and secondary premature ejaculation, where someone has recently developed the condition.
The treatment Priligy is used to help delay premature ejaculation, but there are also various self-help techniques that can be helpful. Many people with the condition have found it beneficial to wear a thick condom during sex to decrease stimulation, or masturbating an hour or so before sex, or (with practice) breathing deeply when you are close to orgasm to shut down the ejaculation reflex.
The links and differences between premature ejaculation and erectile dysfunction
The two conditions are linked because they are sexual dysfunctions experienced by men, but this isn’t the only connection.
The NHS says that both ED and PE can be caused by psychological factors such as anxiety or PTSD, and there have also been some studies suggesting that there may be physical similarities between people with the conditions.
Where can I order PE and ED treatments?
You can order PE treatments and ED treatments from your Co-operative Pharmacy.
Some treatments, such as Priligy and Sildenafil, and more, will need to be ordered through our Online Doctor section, as they require a prescription. However, Viagra Connect can be ordered through the OMSDELHI .
