Premature ejaculation (or “PE,” for short) is defined as a “persistent or recurrent ejaculation with minimal stimulation before, on or shortly after penetration and before the person wishes it.” In simple terms, premature ejaculation occurs when you ejaculate too early during intercourse or sexual activity. There’s no specific amount of time that defines ejaculation as “premature”—most sources use figures ranging from 30 seconds to four minutes into sexual activity.LEARN: CAUSES OF PREMATURE EJACULATION
Sertraline, the active ingredient in Zoloft, is a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) that helps increase the serotonin levels in your brain. Since serotonin is part of how your brain processes sexual excitement, SSRIs like sertraline can help manage premature ejaculation during the times that count, without numbing the penis.
Sertraline for premature ejaculation is taken daily. Simply take your medication at the same time every day with or without food. Always take sertraline exactly as prescribed by your doctor.LEARN: HOW SERTRALINE WORKS FOR PREMATURE EJACULATION
Prescription medicine for premature ejaculation, such as sertraline, and topical products like Hims Climax Delay Spray can both help increase time to ejaculation--but work differently and fit different lifestyles. Since sertraline is a pill, it might be a good fit for people worried about having to plan sex or stop in the middle of the action to spray or wipe the penis. Climax Delay Spray, on the other hand, might be a good fit for people who don't want to take a prescription pill.LEARN: PREMATURE EJACULATION PILLS AND ALTERNATIVES
