Personality and Premature Ejaculation: Are They Linked?
Study Explores Estrogen and VTE in Transgender Surgery
Men's personalities and attitudes could provide some insight into premature ejaculation (PE), according to a recent Journal of Sexual Medicine study.
The study included 350 men with PE and a control group of 252 men without ejaculatory issues.
Researchers used the Temperament and Character Inventory-Revised (TCI) tool to assess men's personality traits in relation to four types of PE: lifelong, acquired, variable, and subjective. Attitudes toward PE were analyzed through interview questions.
The research team found that men with PE had lower scores on novelty-seeking and self-transcendence domains of the TCI.
Over half of the men with PE said that their partner played a "very important" role in PE treatment decisions.

We're pleased to announce that a new research summary has been posted to the ISSM website.
Is it safe for transgender women to continue estrogen therapy before penile inversion vaginoplasty?
Or would this protocol raise risk for venous thromboembolism (VTE)?
"Estrogen Continuation and Venous Thromboembolism in Penile Inversion Vaginoplasty" by Ian T. Nolan, BM, et al., explores these questions.
The study was originally published in November in the Journal of Sexual Medicine.
