Tóm tắt

Premature ejaculation (PE) is the most common reported sexual complaint in men. It is believed that PE is associated with sexual behavior such as early sexual experience, novelty of partners or frequencies of intercourse. Therefore, to examine the association of PE and sexual behaviors in men, a case-control study was conducted with a total of 418 clients Subjects were interviewed for general health status, sexual behaviors, IELT and requested to complete the premature ejaculation diagnostic tool (PEDT). DSM-IV-TR criteria were applied for the diagnosis of PE. Those who diagnosed with PE(+) and PEDT score ≥ 11 belonged to the PE group; those diagnosed with PE(-) and PEDT < 11 belonged to the non-PE group. The results indicated that no significant difference was noted regarding demographic features in the 2 groups. Normal men had a more frequent sexual life compared with PE patients (9.71 ± 6.09 and 6.62 ± 5.44 episodes of sexual intercourses per month, respectively with p < 0.001. Subjects who were single or circumcised had higher prevalence of PE than married or uncircumcised men. Multivariable logistic analysis elucidated that circumcision, number of lifetime sexual partners and sexual frequencies were associated factors of PE. In conclusion, PE is a common sexual dysfunction in men. It was found to be significantly associated with circumcision and frequencies of sexual intercourse. Medical history taking of PE patients should include these sexual behavior factors.
