Researchers Find Correlation Between Premature Ejaculation an CP/CPPS

Korean researchers recommend that men with premature ejaculation (PE) be screened for chronic prostatitis/chronic pelvic pain syndrome  (CP/CPPS) and vice versa. 

While studies have shown links between PE and CP/CPPS before, the bulk of that research has focused on men younger than 40 years. As CP/CPPS risk increases with age, the scientists wanted to study an older population.

They collected data from 8,261 men with a mean age of 50.4 years.  The participants completed questionnaires related to erectile dysfunction (ED), PE, and prostatitis.  Metabolic status and testosterone levels were also checked.  

The researchers found a correlation between scores on chronic prostatitis and PE assessments.  They also discovered that the more severe a man's pelvic pain, the higher his risk for PE.
