Doctor: Your symptoms of premature ejaculation may not be related to your protein intake. The most common cause of premature eja culation is psychological due to pressure to perform or stress. I would advise you to wait and watch. It may also be helpful to speak to your partner and speak openly about your concerns. If these measures don’t help, you may need to see a urologist to investigate if there is an underlying pathological condition causing the premature ejaculation.
