Combining medication with sex therapy has not been widely studied, although past research has shown that combining approaches was more effective than medication alone. To date, no study has investigated the potential benefits of adding sex therapy to treatment with dapoxetine. In this study, the researchers hypothesized that combining dapoxetine with behavioral therapy would yield better results for men with PE than dapoxetine alone.
To assess erectile dysfunction, standard operating procedure should include:
• Investigation of the neural control of the tone of smooth muscle cells of the erectile tissue and the penile arterial supply
• Assessment of penile sensory innervation
Women’s perceptions of PE have not been widely researched. Recent studies have had mixed results. Examining these issues more closely could help clinicians better understand the physical, psychological, and interpersonal aspects of PE for couples.
