Sertraline for Premature Ejaculation

And because Sertraline is a pill taken ahead of time, whether on a daily or an as-needed basis, you won't have to halt the action to apply a topical product. Modern romance at its finest.

what is premature ejaculation?

Premature ejaculation (or “PE,” for short) is defined as a “persistent or recurrent ejaculation with minimal stimulation before, on or shortly after penetration and before the person wishes it.” In simple terms, premature ejaculation occurs when you ejaculate too early during intercourse or sexual activity. There’s no specific amount of time that defines ejaculation as “premature”—most sources use figures ranging from 30 seconds to four minutes into sexual activity.


why Sertraline?

Sertraline, the active ingredient in Zoloft, is a very low dose selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) that helps increase the serotonin levels in your brain. When taken at a low dosage, it can also manage premature ejaculation during the times that count, without numbing the penis.

The SSRI class of drugs, including Sertraline, is FDA-approved to treat depression, anxiety and certain other mood disorders. Treatment for these conditions is not currently offered through H ims. Treatment for premature ejaculation is an “off- label” use of Sertraline. Learn about “off-label” use [here](https://support.forhims.com/hc/en-us/articles/360024633691-what-is-off-label-drug-use-).


how to take

Sertraline can be taken daily or on an as-needed basis for premature ejaculation. For as-needed take the medically prescribed dosage 4-8 hours before having sex. For daily, simply take your medication at the same time every day. Always take Sertraline exactly as prescribed by your doctor.


prescription pills or pej spray?

Prescription medicine for premature ejaculation, such as Sertraline, and topical products like Hims pej spray can both help delay climax--but work differently and fit different lifestyles. Since Sertraline is a pill, it might be a good fit for people worried about having to stop in the middle of the action, not being able to use a condom, avoiding oral sex, or people finding out about their PE when they apply topical products. The pej spray, on the other hand, might be a good fit for people who don't want to take a prescription pill ongoing or who want to be able to live more spontaneously, since the pills have to be taken well in advance or every day.
