What Is Premature Ejaculation?

Premature ejaculation (PE) can refer to any instance when a man faces endurance issues during sex, where the man reaches orgasm and ejaculates faster than desired. PE affects 1 in 3 men across their lifetime, and is one of the most common sexual disorders for men in Singapore.

According to a study by Adaikan (2011) involving 243 Singaporean men aged between 18 and 55, one-fifth of the respondents have PE and 14% have Probable PE. However, out of those that were experiencing PE, only 23% consulted with a doctor, a third had no desire to, and only 17% of the respondents were aware of prescription medication for PE. Most of the men only heard of using behavioural techniques to treat PE.

There are two types of premature ejaculation — lifelong and acquired.

Lifelong PE refers to the condition where you have not been able to control your ejaculation since your first sexual encounter. Without treatment, some men may struggle with PE throughout their entire life.

Acquired PE is like the name suggests, acquired at a later time after their first sexual encounter, meaning that the man has experienced a time where he was able to control orgasm, before having an issue with PE.

What Causes Premature Ejaculation?

Causes of PE vary between people, and can be due to a variety of factors from biological to psychological reasons. The cause can also vary between lifelong PE and acquired PE.

Lifelong PE can be caused as a result of chemical imbalances in areas of the brain responsible for controlling ejaculation (Andrology Australia, n.d.). With less stimulation needed to reach orgasm, ejaculation happens faster than you would like.

As for acquired PE, performance anxiety, or ‘stage fright’, is often the cause. This could stem from any fears you might have surrounding sex, whether it’s your performance, being caught in the act, or even sometimes as a result of religious or cultural pressures (Andrology Australia, n.d.). Erectile dysfunction may also be a cause of acquired PE.

What Is Priligy (Dapoxetine) And How Does It Treat Premature Ejaculation?

PE medication like Priligy belong to a classification of drugs called Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors (SSRIs), which are used in the treatment of anxiety and depression. When Priligy is taken to treat premature ejaculation, the serotonin levels are boosted in the body. This leads to a delayed reaction in parts of the brain that controls ejaculation and prolongs the time it takes to orgasm.

This prescription-only pill is usually taken 1-3 hours before sexual activity.

We get it. Going down to a clinic and talking to a doctor about your penis can be really awkward.

You just want to get the medication you need to get hard, and get back to more enjoyable things in the bedroom. Is there a way to avoid a trip to the doctors and buy the PE medication you need online without a prescription?

Unfortunately no.

In order to get any PE medication (Priligy, Dapoxetine) in Singapore, you will need to see a doctor for a prescription.  

What To Do If Priligy Isn't Working for Me?

If you find you're not getting the results you want with Priligy or would prefer to avoid the side effects, here are the other common PE treatments available in Singapore:

PE Creams and Gels

Consider using mild anesthetic sprays or cream that contain lidocaine or benzocaine.

Lidocaine is a local anesthetic used to numb specific areas of the body. Not just an effective pain reliever, lidocaine's numbing effect can help you last longer in bed by reducing the sensitivity of your penis when applied topically (either as a spray or a cream). By slightly limiting the sensations you experience during foreplay and penetrative sex, this makes it less likely for you to ejaculate prematurely.

It is important to know that while lidocaine sprays do decrease your sensitivity slightly during sex, when used correctly, it will not completely numb your penis or hinder your sexual experience.

Frequently Asked Questions About Priligy

Can Priligy Be Taken With Cialis (Tadalafil) And Other ED Meds?

A commonly prescribed ED medication, Cialis is a PDE5 inhibitor that helps to relax the walls of the blood vessels and allows the blood to flow more readily to create and maintain an erection.

As both Priligy and Cialis have different mechanisms of action and are intended to address different issues, it is possible to take both Priligy and Cialis (and other ED medications) together.

However, it is important that this is done under the guidance of a healthcare professional as combining medications could increase your risk of experiencing side effects. You should inform your doctor about any medical conditions you have or other medication you are currently taking so that they can determine whether it is safe for you to combine Priligy with Cialis (or any other ED medications).

If you experience side effects like dizziness or nausea, you should stop taking the medications immediately. Here at Noah, we offer free follow-up consults so you can check in with your doctor to discuss these side effects and what the next steps are to ensure the best and safest possible experience.  

Can Priligy Cause ED?

Priligy is not typically associated with causing erectile dysfunction (ED) as a common side effect. In fact, Priligy is intended to help improve sexual function by addressing issues related to premature ejaculation.

If you do experience erectile dysfunction, consider consulting a doctor to determine its root cause and the best treatment suited for you.

Is It Safe To Buy PE Meds Online?

Yes, so long as the online platform you are considering is recognized by the Ministry of Health as a direct telemedicine service provider and you have been prescribed Priligy (or any other PE medication) by a licensed doctor.  

You should avoid sites or listings on e-commerce platforms that claim you can order Priligy or other PE medications online from them without a prescription and at low costs. These sites (and the medications sold) have not been approved by the Health Science Authority (HSA) in Singapore and are considered as illegal ways to obtain PE medication without a doctor's prescription.

If you are experiencing premature ejaculation, it is advisable that you consult a doctor. Here at Noah, our doctors are best equipped with the knowledge to help you ascertain the root cause of your PE and can determine whether Priligy is right for you. They will be able to advise you on the best treatment suited for you, and can also prescribe you the right medication should you need it.
