Acupuncture Treatment For Premature Ejaculation

Premature ejaculation (PE) is a common condition affections millions of American men.  Treatments include the time-honored squeeze technique described by Master’s and Johnson, topical medication applied to the penis to reduce the sensation, and oral medication including the SSRIs to increase the intra-vaginal latency time or time before ejaculation occurs.  The use of acupuncture increased the time before ejaculation from 16 seconds to 65 seconds compared to an increase of 33 seconds with the use of a placebo.

Bottom Line: Acupuncture may just be another arrow in the doctor’s quiver for the treatment of PE.
