Vasectomy and Premature Ejaculation – Does It Help or Cause PE?

A man consulting with a doctor about having a vasectomy

There are some misconceptions about the relationship between vasectomies and premature ejaculation. In this short article we’ll try to address these common misconceptions.

Can a vasectomy help with premature ejaculation?

No. Having a vasectomy will not help with premature ejaculation. If you suffer from premature ejaculation, there several treatments you can use. Most premature ejaculation cases can be cured or at least significantly improved.

Premature ejaculation happens when you cannot delay ejaculation for longer than a minute from the moment of penetration.

Can a vasectomy cause premature ejaculation?

No. Having a vasectomy will not cause premature ejaculation. What a vasectomy does is remove the sperm from the ejaculate. This mechanism is entirely unrelated to the mechanism that allows man to delay ejaculation.

Will I last longer after a vasectomy?

If by lasting longer, you’re talking about maintaining an erection for longer, then the answer is probably not. There was a study that showed that men who had vasectomies enjoyed better erectile function, orgasm, sexual desire, and intercourse satisfaction. But this was only a single study, and the general opinion is that vasectomy doesn’t affect sexual performance.

If by lasting longer, you mean delaying ejaculation for longer, then having a vasectomy will not help.
