Today life is moving at a faster pace. Everyone is busy with his/her routine. Nowadays there is lot of work pressure at the offices. There are deadlines to meet which often leave an individual stressed out and frustrated. Stress is a major cause for producing a hormonal imbalance which in turn can lead to sexual disorders like Erectile Dysfunction (ED) and Premature Ejaculation (PE) men. In condition of premature ejaculation, man ejaculates too quickly before reaching orgasm which leaves both the partners sexually unsatisfied. Diseases and disorders such as diabetes, thyroid dysfunction, prostate disease etc., and addictions such as smoking, alcohol consumption and drug abuse and psychological causes like stress, depression, anxiety etc. are leading causes of developing PE. The first line of treatment for premature ejaculation is medicines like Dapoxetine, Duloxetine Dapoxetine was the first effective drug used for treating PE. Dapoxetine is available as the brand-Generic Priligy.
