Delayed ejaculation (DE) is a condition where it takes an extended period of sexual stimulation for men to reach sexual climax and ejaculate.
Some men with DE are unable to ejaculate at all.
Delayed ejaculation can be temporary or a lifelong problem.
Possible causes of DE include certain chronic health conditions, surgeries and medications, and treatment for it depends on the underlying cause.
It’s normal for men to have delayed ejaculation from time to time and it is only a problem if it’s ongoing or causes stress for you or your partner.

Some men with delayed ejaculation need 30 minutes or more of sexual stimulation to have an orgasm and ejaculate. Some men can only ejaculate with manual or oral stimulation. Other men might not be able to ejaculate at all (anejaculation).
But, there’s no specific time that indicates a diagnosis of DE. Instead, you are probably experiencing it if the delay is causing distress or frustration, or if you have to stop sexual activity due to fatigue, physical irritation, loss of erection or a request from your partner.
Often, men might have difficulty reaching orgasm during sexual intercourse or other sexual activities with a partner. Some men can ejaculate only when masturbating.

These categories help in diagnosing an underlying cause and determining what might be the most effective treatment.
