Retarded Ejaculation (RE)

Retarded ejaculation — sometimes called impaired, inhibited or delayed ejaculation — is a condition in which it takes an extended period of sexual stimulation for a man to reach sexual climax and release semen from the penis (ejaculate). Some men with delayed ejaculation are unable to ejaculate at all.

RE can be temporary or a lifelong problem. It's normal for men to have RE from time to time. RE is only a problem if it's ongoing or causes stress for you or your partner.
