Dr Christina Hennessey: Tom, I think quite a lot of our patients are confused about the difference between premature ejaculation, PE and erectile dysfunction, ED. Have you found this as well?
Dr Christina Hennessey:I think that both erectile dysfunction and premature ejaculation are linked. No, I think they’re two separate things. No I wouldn’t imagine they were linked. I think if you got over erectile dysfunction then there is a chance of having premature ejaculation the next time you have sex. I think that a lot of people think that those two think are separate issues but they’re both actually the same side of the coin.
Dr Tom Brett: I think a lot of people do confuse PE and ED. PE is premature ejaculation and means when you ejaculate before you or your partner would like you to ejaculate. On the other hand, erectile dysfunction, or ED, is when you have problems getting an erection in the first place. But often the two are linked because someone who has got PE could worry that they are going to come too quickly, and once there is worry in the equation you have problems getting an erection in the first place.
