Priligy (Dapoxetine) Singapore

Priligy (Dapoxetine) Singapore

Priligy, the brand name for dapoxetine, is a medication prescribed for the treatment of premature ejaculation (PE) in men. Priligy is a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) originally developed to treat depression, but it is specifically approved for the treatment of premature ejaculation due to its fast-acting nature. It works by increasing serotonin levels in the nervous system, which helps to delay the ejaculation reflex and extend the time before ejaculation.

ATA Medical provides Priligy (Dapoxetine) in Singapore to address premature ejaculation (PE) in men.

Premature Ejaculation

Premature ejaculation is one of the most common forms of sexual dysfunction among men in Singapore. It typically involves ejaculation that occurs too soon during sexual intercourse—an issue that can cause distress and frustration for both partners. Premature ejaculation is defined when ejaculation happens within one minute of vaginal penetration and causes significant distress or interpersonal difficulties.

As many as one in three men may experience premature ejaculation.

One in three men in Singapore may experience Premature Ejaculation (PE).

What Are the Causes of Premature Ejaculation?

Premature ejaculation can be caused by a variety of factors, which can be psychological, biological, or a combination of both. Here are a few common causes:

Psychological Factors

  • Stress: Stress about work, finances, or other personal issues can affect sexual performance.
  • Anxiety: This includes general anxiety as well as performance anxiety specifically related to sexual performance.
  • Relationship Problems: Interpersonal issues between partners may contribute to sexual dysfunction.

Biological Factors

  • Hormonal Imbalances: Imbalances in hormone levels, such as testosterone, may influence ejaculation control.
  • Neurological Problems: Certain conditions affecting the nervous system can impair the body's ability to control ejaculation.

Medical Conditions

  • Prostate Issues: Problems such as prostate inflammation or infection can lead to premature ejaculation.
  • Thyroid Problems: Both hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism have been linked to premature ejaculation.
  • Medication Side Effects: Some medications, especially those used to treat mental health disorders, can affect sexual function and may cause or exacerbate premature ejaculation.
  • Erectile Dysfunction: Men who are anxious about obtaining or maintaining an erection during sexual intercourse may form a pattern of rushing to ejaculate, which can be difficult to change.

If you're experiencing issues with premature ejaculation, it's important to discuss this with your doctor. They can help determine the underlying causes and recommend appropriate treatments or interventions.
