Premature ejaculation is the most frequent male sexual dysfunction, significantly impairing quality of life of both the patient and the partner and affecting up to one-third of men of every age. In the last years, our knowledge about this topic has greatly increased, and studies on the causes and treatments related to ejaculatory disorders have shed a light on previously uncharted territory. Public interest on sexual dysfunctions has likewise increased in the general population: the time lapse… 
Assessment of hormonal activity in patients with premature ejaculation
TLDR
Thyroid-stimulating hormone, luteinizing hormone, and prolactin levels were significantly lower in men with premature ejaculation according to premature ejaculations diagnostic tool (p=0.017, 0.017 and 0.007, respectively).
Management of premature ejaculation: a clinical guideline from the Italian Society of Andrology and Sexual Medicine (SIAMS)
TLDR
Evidence-based clinical guidelines provide the necessary up-to-date guidance in the context of PE secondary to organic and psychosexological conditions, such as prostate inflammation, endocrine disorders, and other sexual dysfunctions, and suggest how to associate pharmacotherapies and cognitive-behavioral therapy in a couple-centered approach.
Premature Ejaculation and Endocrine Disorders: A Literature Review
TLDR
There is evidence that diabetes mellitus (DM), obesity, metabolic syndrome (MetS), thyroid gland disorders, pituitary glands disorders, and vitamin D deficiency affect the prevalence of PE, and it has been reported that the prevalenceof PE decreases with treatment of these endocrine disorders.
Premature Ejaculation: 2020 Update
TLDR
Although the pathophysiology of these four PE syndromes has not been completely elucidated yet, pharmacotherapy must be considered the treatment of choice for lifelong PE patients whereas treating the underlying pathology must be the initial goal for patients with acquired PE.
Redefining a sexual medicine paradigm: subclinical premature ejaculation as a new taxonomic entity
TLDR
Application of these diagnoses to men who meet the criteria for SPE and/or LCEE, but not the overt conditions, could improve access to treatment for these patients and reduce progression to the more serious clinical disorder.
Is There A Role for Dihydrotestosterone/ Estradiol Ratio in Premature Ejaculation?
TLDR
Both TT/E2 and DHT/ E2 ratios were significantly lower in both primary and secondary PE subjects suggesting a role of hormonal imbalance in this context, although large-scale studies are needed to confirm these findings.
Organic and Psychogenic Causes of Sexual Dysfunction in Young Men
TLDR
This review focuses on the common etiologies of sexual dysfunction experienced by young men in order to help educate clinicians so that they may better understand, identify, and serve this growing patient population.
MANAGEMENT OF ENDOCRINE DISEASE
TLDR
Knowing how each endocrine dysfunction can impair sexual health is of the utmost importance, considering the high prevalence of conditions such as disorders of pituitary, thyroid, adrenal, gonads, as well as metabolic disorders.
Progresses in pharmaceutical and surgical management of premature ejaculation
TLDR
The pharmaceutical therapy that is currently being used in clinical practice for the management of PE is still the main choice globally due to its good efficacy and surgery may be a choice for patients who are resistant to medication.

Hormonal Evaluation in Premature Ejaculation
TLDR
Investigation of the role of hormonal factors in patients with PE found levels of prolactin and free T4 were found to be significantly higher in the PE group relative to the control group, and consideration of potential effects oformonal factors might be beneficial.

TLDR
Endocrine system is involved in the control of ejaculatory function and that PRL, TSH and testosterone play an independent role, according to a large series of subjects consulting for sexual dysfunction.
Different testosterone levels are associated with ejaculatory dysfunction.
TLDR
The data seem to suggest that T plays a facilitatory role in the control of ejaculatory reflex, comparing subjects with premature ejaculation or delayed ejaculation to those without ejaculatory dysfunction.

Sexological approach to ejaculatory dysfunction1
TLDR
Advances in understanding the importance and frequency of ejaculatory disorders, insights into their organic and non-organic pathophysiology and the efficacy of a growing arsenal of pharmacological therapies lead to a new challenge which can be confronted only with the development of new, integrated therapeutic alternatives.

Serum testosterone and gonadotropins levels in patients with premature ejaculation: A comparison with normal men
TLDR
Patients with PE have higher FT and FSH levels compared with normal men, and the causative relationship between these entities and also the clinical importance of this finding has to be determined by more comprehensive studies.
