What is Priligy?
Ejaculation causes various processes in the central nervous system. Serotonin is one of the messengers that play a special role. The active ingredient found in Priligy, namely dapoxetine, reduces the reuptake of serotonin. The drug is, therefore, a serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI). Dapoxetine delays the ejaculation and ensures when taking shortly before sexual intercourse, more control over the timing of ejaculation.
What is a premature ejaculation?
Premature ejaculation occurs when you are unable to delay or control ejaculation, with the time to ejaculation being individually different. The average duration of sexual intercourse until ejaculation is about 5 minutes. The duration is different from case to case; however, the most important factor is the satisfaction of the participants. You should seek treatment for premature ejaculation if you have ejaculation on average in less than a minute.
