  • Medical History
  • A thorough medical and sexual history is the main way to diagnose premature ejaculation. Sometimes a man may think he has premature ejaculation but when speaking with a medical professional he discovers that he is actually normal. The medical professional should deduce if the problem has been life-long or has been recently acquired. Sexual issues, possible psychological problems and all medications should be discussed during the medical history of the patient.
     
     
     

  • Medical examination
  • A proper general medical examination is always recommended to ensure that the man is healthy. If he complains of erectile dysfunction which accompanies his premature ejaculation he should be thoroughly investigated for any medical conditions which could contribute to his problem.

  • Bloods
  • If clinically indicated bloods may be drawn for thyroid function and prolactin levels. If premature ejaculation is associated with erectile dysfunction it might help to draw blood for testosterone levels.
