Men With PE May Benefit From More Exercise
New Research Examines Local Treatment of Penile Implant Infection
Increasing physical activity could help men with premature ejaculation (PE), according to a new study by Finnish researchers.
PE occurs when a man ejaculates before he wishes it to happen, leading to stress and frustration for many couples. It is not clear what causes PE.
The research team investigated the role of lifestyle factors in the treatment of PE. Using survey data from two groups of men, they analyzed the men's experiences with PE, erectile dysfunction (ED), alcohol use, and exercise habits.
They found that men were more likely to have PE symptoms when they exercised less. Alcohol use did not affect PE significantly.
More research is needed, the authors noted. However, if future studies confirm a link between increased exercise and decreased PE, clinicians might consider recommending exercise to their PE patients.
The study was published online in August in the Journal of Sexual Medicine. More details are available here.
Please note that a new research summary has been posted to the ISSM website.
"Local Treatment of Penile Prosthesis Infection as Alternative to Immediate Salvage Surgery" by Saturnino Luján, MD, et al. was published in Sexual Medicine in July as an article in press.
The study discusses local treatment of inflatable penile prostheses as an alternative to device reimplantation or salvage surgery.
