Premature Ejaculation: Results of Clinician Survey
World Meeting Update - Register by September 15
How do sexual health experts define and manage premature ejaculation (PE) for their patients? The results of a new survey provides some insight.
The questionnaire was completed by 217 physicians at the 17th Annual Congress of the European Society for Sexual Medicine (ESSM), held last year in Copenhagen.
Most respondents considered PE an important condition to treat, but 9% didn't think treatment was necessary. Twelve percent said that PE should only be treated if the patient feels distress.
The survey also covered criteria for diagnosis, treatment goals, treatment methods, and education on PE.
About half of the respondents felt there was not enough information on PE available for patients or providers.
The study authors stressed education as a way to "increase [sex health experts'] awareness and knowledge about the recent developments and evolved guidelines for the treatment of PE."
The report was published online in June in Sexual Medicine.
