Ask the Health Educator: Ejaculation Before Sex

Question from December 13, 2013

why it happens that before having sex ejaculation happens?

Answer:

Ejaculation before sex is usually referred to as premature ejaculation. It is something many men experience especially, as teens and young adults. The exact cause of premature ejaculation is not known, but it could happen if a person is nervous, very excited to have sex, or may be in a hurry to climax, or have an orgasm.

Premature ejaculation is not usually an experience that men will have every time they have sex, but it is not uncommon. If you are referring to the small amount of fluid that is usually present on the tip of the penis during an erection (getting hard), this is called pre-ejaculate or pre-cum. This is not the same a premature ejaculation. This is the body’s way of preparing for ejaculation during sex will and likely happen every time an erection happens.
