Frequently asked questions

How do doctors define premature ejaculation?
Doctors and other experts define premature ejaculation as ejaculating too quickly during most or all sexual penetration. What’s too quickly? It's often defined as less than a minute into a sexual experience, but it can be longer, depending on how much control you feel when you climax.

Premature ejaculation is also characterized by negative personal consequences. In some cultures, early ejaculation can be a sign of masculinity, so it's not considered a problem. But if you feel distressed, worried, or annoyed by the speed of your climax, or if your relationship is suffering because of it, a clinician might be able to help.
What causes premature ejaculation?
There are two kinds of premature ejaculation: 1) lifelong, when you've experienced symptoms since your sexual debut, and 2) acquired, when something has caused a change in your sexual function.

Many factors can cause changes in sexual function, including the following:
• Aging

• Psychological or relationship issues

• Underlying health issues
Our intake form can help your clinician determine what's going on, and why.
What should I do if I have ED and premature ejaculation?
Erectile dysfunction and premature ejaculation can occur at the same time. If you're experiencing both conditions, clinicians generally recommend that you seek treatment for ED first before adding premature ejaculation treatments. You can start an ED visit through Amazon Clinic's Erectile dysfunction treatment page.
How common is premature ejaculation?
Sexual health experts estimate that premature ejaculation affects up to 70% of men in the U.S. at some point in their lives.
What types of visit can I have?
Video visits are available in all 50 states and D.C. Message-only visits are available in 34 states. To see your visit options, first choose your state.
Can I use my health insurance to pay for a visit and/or medication?
Amazon Clinic doesn't accept health insurance for visits at this time. You can submit a claim to your insurance provider for reimbursement, but we can’t guarantee they’ll reimburse you.

If you normally use insurance to pay for your medications, you can do that with medications prescribed through Amazon Clinic. Amazon Pharmacy accepts most insurance plans. For other pharmacies, please talk with your pharmacy directly about insurance coverage. The cost of medication isn’t included in the cost of your visit.
How does Amazon Clinic protect my health information?
Amazon Clinic protects your health information by strictly following the requirements of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). HIPAA governs what Amazon Clinic and your healthcare providers can do with your medical information, as well as your contact and payment information. Amazon Clinic doesn’t and will never sell your personal information. Learn more on our privacy page.
