Premature Ejaculation (Singapore)

Premature ejaculation affects 30% of men globally, if this condition affects you, you can seek medical advice within the privacy of your home. Simply consult a doctor via the Speedoc app to explore your treatment options today.

What Is Premature Ejaculation?

Premature Ejaculation (PE) is characterised by the inability to delay orgasm for more than three minutes. This applies to all sexual situations including masturbation.

It is not unusual for PE to cause frustrations in your relationship as it affects the quality of sex and can make it challenging for couples trying to conceive. Treating PE will help enhance your relationship with your partner, allowing you to have it going longer.

What Causes Premature Ejaculation?

There can be many causes of PE, ranging from physical to psychological factors, but the exact cause is unknown.

A number of physical factors can cause PE. These include:

  • Irregular levels of hormones or brain chemicals
  • Swelling and infection of the prostate or urethra
  • If you have erectile dysfunction (ED), that can also be a cause of your PE

Psychological factors are a little more complex. Feelings of anxiety and guilt can cause you to rush through sex and this can, in part, be due to previous sexual experiences that could have been unpleasant or traumatic.

How Is Premature Ejaculation Treated In Singapore?

Premature ejaculation usually takes a multi-pronged approach of medication and behavioural treatment. Our doctors will be able to recommend an appropriate treatment course for you.

Psychological Therapy

Psychological therapy is a way to work through the negative feelings and emotions that arise during sex. As you begin to manage your emotions better, you will gradually become less nervous and more confident about your sexual performance. This type of therapy can be used as the only treatment or in combination with medication or behavioral therapy.

The Squeeze Method

This method helps you become aware of the sensations leading to climax. With this method, your penis is firmly squeezed when you are close to ejaculation. As you become aware of what the climax feels like, you will slowly be able to better control your ejaculation.

The Stop-Start Method

This method helps you slowly regain control of your ejaculation. With this method, your penis is stimulated until you are close to climax and then stopped, allowing the urge to climax to let up. This process is repeated three times and you ejaculate on the fourth time.

This method is repeated three times a week until you have gained more control.

Pelvic Floor Exercises

To train your pelvic muscles, try Kegel maneuvers that essentially involve engaging and relaxing your pelvic muscles for three counts consecutively. Do this a couple of times a day, slowly building up to three sets of 10 a day.

Training your muscles may take some time to actually produce a difference. This also depends on whether this is the cause of your PE.


Depending on your condition, numbing agents and medication (e.g dapoxetine) may help. In the event that you experience ED concurrently with PE, it could be attributed to psychological factors.

Decreased Sensitivity

Decreasing the sensitivity of your penis may help to delay ejaculation. You can do so by wearing a condom or applying a numbing agent directly.
