  • 1Department of Urology, Yonsei University College of Medicine, Seoul, Korea.


On psychological aspect, premature ejaculation in psychosexual dysfunction is generally associated with anxiety. Psychiatrists consider that the treatment of choice for premature ejaculation is directive sextherapy with psychotherapy. We screened psychopathology according to the Symptom Checklist-90-Revision (SCL-90-R) in premature ejaculation group (n=120) and control group (n=92). The rate of abnormal RESULTS of both groups were similar as 5 (4.1%) in patient group and 4 (4.3%) in control group. And there was statistical significance in T scores on 5 symptom dimensions of Obsessive-Compulsive, Interpersonal Sensitivity, Depression, Anxiety and Psychoticism, but all of the T scores of those dimensions were with in the normal range. The psychological personality test does not reflect all of the psychosexual factors. But with the psychological screening, we could find that the psychological factors are not absolutely associated with premature ejaculation.
