Eli5 How is premature ejaculation related to mental health?


I saw that most healthcare professionals treat PE with therapy rather than some type of medication or exercise. But isn’t this a physiological problem and how does it even relate to mental health?

Mental health could have some effects in PE. Anxiety and depression have been seen that could affect it. PE from what I’ve seen had much to do with physical symptoms that are treatable, like breathing patterns and controlling muscle contractions in the penis. Which in many ways could be affected by mental health, like anxiety, could cause abnormal breathing patterns, creating PE during sex.

PE is treatable, and just like any muscle in your body, you can train it to control the involuntary contractions that can cause PE, check kegel exercises and breathing exercises to help with this
