Ejaculation Disorders

What are Ejaculation Disorders?

Ejaculation disorders are problems with the release of semen during sexual activity. They can be classified as premature ejaculation, delayed ejaculation, or anejaculation (lack of ejaculation).


Examples of Ejaculation Disorders

Ejaculation disorders can affect men of all ages and may be caused by physical or psychological issues.


Premature Ejaculation

This is a condition in which a man ejaculates too quickly during sexual activity. It is often defined as occurring within one minute of penetration.


Delayed Ejaculation

This is a condition in which it takes a man a longer than usual time to ejaculate during sexual activity. It can be caused by physical or psychological factors.


Retrograde Ejaculation

This is a condition in which semen flows back into the bladder instead of being expelled through the penis during ejaculation. It can be caused by certain medications or medical conditions.


Anorgasmia

This is a condition in which a man is unable to achieve orgasm despite adequate sexual stimulation. It can be caused by physical or psychological factors.


It is important to note that these are just a few examples of ejaculation disorders. If you are experiencing any difficulties with ejaculation, you should speak to a healthcare professional.
