Factors Needing Consensus for a Universal and Objective Definition for Premature Ejaculation

Dr Vijayasarathi Ramanathan

Premature Ejaculation (PE) is commonly reported as a ‘common and most prevalent male sexual dysfunction’. The prevalence rate is claimed to be between 4% and 30% of all sexually active men. However, there is not enough epidemiological evidence to support the above statements. The review of the articles and reports on PE revealed discrepancy with the definition and/or the diagnostic criteria used by individual researchers. The burden of PE is either underestimated or overestimated due to unavailability of a standard definition.
Objectives: To analyse and compare the definitions used in individual studies on PE; to identify the key factors that needs consensus to develop a universal definition for PE. A critical review of all available literature on PE was done after obtaining Quality Assurance from the Human Research Ethics Committee, NSW Australia.
