Thank you for your question.

This problem can be lifelong or may be acquired where it may arise sometimes in a person’s life, but it is usually only temporary. Among other things, common causes of temporary premature ejaculation can be due to societal pressure, anxiety, stress, substances, or erectile dysfunction.
