Criteria to evaluate premature ejaculation
Premature ejaculation causes psychological frustration as well as makes men self-deprecating, avoiding sex, leading to cracks in married life and family happiness. Besides, the patient himself is also easily tired, reduced sexual pleasure, is not mentally good and affects work. It is necessary to accurately assess premature ejaculation based on the following criteria for timely intervention.
1. What is Premature Ejaculation?
Premature ejaculation is a condition in which a man cannot control and control the time of ejaculation, causing ejaculation earlier or within 1 minute when inserting the penis into the vagina.
Premature ejaculation is quite common in men, but it is rarely mentioned because it is a sensitive issue that patients are afraid to express. Concealing the disease, not going to the doctor while they do not have enough professional knowledge to understand and deal with it makes men prone to dangerous complications such as erectile dysfunction, impotence, even infertility.
2. The degree of premature ejaculation
Premature ejaculation can be divided into 3 levels based on the time of ejaculation of men after inserting the penis into the vagina:
Mild premature ejaculation: Is ejaculation only 30 seconds to 1 minute after the penis penetration into the vagina; Moderate Premature Ejaculation: Ejaculation 15-30 seconds after penetration of the penis into the vagina; Severe Premature Ejaculation: Ejaculation occurs before sex, at the beginning of sexual intercourse, or within 15 seconds of inserting the penis into the vagina.
3. Criteria to evaluate premature ejaculation
To evaluate premature ejaculation, it can be based on the criteria of the American Psychiatric Association used by many experts, including:
The rate of ejaculation within 1 minute after penetration of the penis into the vagina account for 75-100% of the times of intercourse; Disorders persisting for at least 6 months from the first symptom; This is a cause of stress and anxiety. In addition, there are a number of assessment tables being used to determine the premature ejaculation status of patients, typically the PEDT (Premature Ejaculation Diagnostic Tool) panel consisting of 5 questions with a scale of 0-4 with a level of 0-4. Incremental degree:
When having sex, is it difficult or easy for you to delay ejaculation? In the past 6 months, when having sex, how many times did you experience premature ejaculation? Have you ever had sex with very little stimulation, causing you to ejaculate? Do you feel frustrated because you have to ejaculate before you want to? Are you worried that the timing of your ejaculation will make your wife/girlfriend feel unsatisfied? Evaluate the results based on the following points:
Total score < 8: No premature ejaculation; Total score 9-10 : There is a risk of premature ejaculation; Total score > 11: Premature ejaculation. In order to best determine their own premature ejaculation, men should put aside their apprehension to visit a doctor at a reputable hospital. In addition, gentlemen also need to clearly express to their partners to gain sympathy, avoid hiding, making the emotional relationship become cold and easy to crack.
