A number of things can increase your risk of having delayed ejaculation, including:

  • Older age — as men age, it's normal for ejaculation to take longer
  • Psychological conditions, such as depression or anxiety
  • Medical conditions, such as diabetes or multiple sclerosis
  • Certain medical treatments, such as prostate surgery
  • Medications, particularly certain antidepressants, high blood pressure medications or diuretics
  • Relationship problems, for example, problems communicating openly with your partner
  • Drinking alcohol or using illegal drugs, especially if you're a long-term drug user or heavy drinker
