Pakistani’s men with Premature ejaculation (PE) hardly prefer to go for treatment due to cultural barriers (men dominating society). This research objective is the gives knowledge about the effective treatment of premature ejaculation, how it can be effectively treated with the help of different techniques. Premature ejaculation (PE) is happened when a man has an orgasm and ejaculated earlier at the time of intercourse then he or his spouse would like. PE is a men sexual dysfunction that creates a significant anguish for men, partner and their relationships’. Premature ejaculation is not only one illness; it contains 4 subtypes with a unique psychological concern and problems (longtime, acquired, organic and subjective). PE men and couples are treated psychologically for sexual ability but also for self-esteem, performance anxiety and interpersonal disputes. Psychotherapy outcomes alone are hard to compare and to appreciate due to insufficient methodology (lacking control groups, limited sample sizes, poor results and insufficient monitoring). Rare researches, however, which overcome these methodological barriers, indicate that psychological intervention provides a promising treatment choice for men and partners. A detail literature review was done via an electronic database, “Cochrane library databases”, “PsychInfo”, and “PubMed” from June to July 2021. The most effective procedure for lifetime and acquired PE is pharmaco- and psychotherapy combination. Men and partners develop sexual abilities and resolve the intra-psychological, interpersonal and cognitive problems that trigger and sustain dysfunction.
