Types of Premature Ejaculation

It is divided into two major types:

  • Lifelong (Primary)

It is the type of premature ejaculation that a person can suffer from during the first sexual intercourse. According to the researchers, serotonin levels in the brain may be the reason for lifelong ejaculation. Antidepressants such as SSRIs increase the level of serotonin that ultimately controls ejaculation delay time. They suspect that this imbalance takes place genetically. So, lifelong is a hereditary disorder.
