Brief Summary: An observational study on the effect of new classification for premature ejaculation.
Detailed Description:

Premature ejaculation (PE) is one of the the most common male sexual dysfunctions and it has negative impacts on people's quality of life. According to the time that PE syndromes come out, PE is clinically divided to primary PE , which appear from the first sex ,and secondary PE ,which occurred after a period of normal ejaculation. This method of classification make little sense for treatment. In 2008, PE was divided into four types: primary PE, secondary PE, natural variable PE and premature-like ejaculatory dysfunction , and different types of premature ejaculation have their corresponding treatment. Both method of classification are based on the subjective feelings of patients, then whether certain objective test can be used to help diagnosing premature ejaculation? The drug treatment of PE mainly includes local anesthetics and selective 5- serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI), and the selective penile dorsal nerve block is the most used surgery. But the efficacy of dapoxetine(a new SSRI for PE) and local anesthetics is only about 60-70% and 60%, respectively, while the efficacy of surgery is not exact without a standard surgical indication. We suppose that there may be different subtypes of the nerve of patients with premature ejaculation may exist in, which corresponds to a specific treatment.

In previous study, the investigators studied the somatic sensory pathway and autonomic nerve function of patients with premature ejaculation, and found that they were characterized by different neural electrophysiological characteristics. About 60% patients with primary PE show hypersensitivity of penis, and the efficacy of local anesthetics or selective penile dorsal nerve block for them reached 90%. While SSRI can reduce the excitability of the sympathetic nervous system in patients with PE, and the effect of this drug on patients with Sympathetic hyperexcitability is better than those without Sympathetic hyperexcitability. Thus doctors here have already been dividing patients who only suffer from PE(no other diseases mentioned in exclusion criteria)into 4 groups according to the results of nerve electrophysiological examination and give corresponding treatment: 1. Penile sensory hyperexcitability Group, using local anaesthetics(compound lidocaine cream)to treat; 2. Sympathetic hyperexcitability Group: using selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor(SSRI)(Dapoxetine) to treat. 3. Mixed type Group: both Penile sensory hyperexcitability and Sympathetic hyperexcitability: Combined use of two treatments above. 4. Other Group: result of nerve electrophysiological examination is normal: this group of patients will receive further examination to figure out the reason. This pattern of treatment has been used in clinical practice for years.

In this research, the investigators will systemically observe the result of this classification and treatment for 12 weeks. Patients will be asked for participating in this research. The questionnaires(IELT,PEDT,PEP) can be filled in when visited or online about every 4 weeks. If he refused , he would still receive the classified treatment but not enrolled in this research. After treatment of 12 weeks, the investigators will measure the change of IELT, PEDT, PEP, nerve electrophysiological examination and CGIC, then compare the efficacy of the treatment to that has been reported before. If anyone do not want to continue the treatment, he could quit from this research. Software SPSS17.0 will be used for data analysis. The age, height, weight, quantity table, the latency and amplitude of each group will be expressed by the mean add or subtract standard deviation. Quantitative data comparison among groups was analyzed by single factor variance analysis (one-way ANOVA and LSD), comparison of rate using x2 test, comparison of before and after treatment compared with paired t test. P<0.05 showed statistically significant difference.

Groups/Cohorts Interventions
Group I
Penile sensory hyperexcitability: Latency of GPSEP of them are abnormal.They will receive treatment of Compound Lidocaine Cream-a kind of local anaesthetics that is widely used to treat PE.
Group II
Sympathetic hyperexcitability: Latency of PSSR are abnormal.They will be treated with Dapoxetine(Priligy)-a kind of selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor(SSRI) which has been shown effective to PE.
Group III
Mixed type: Both Latency of GPSEP and Latency of PSSR are abnormal.They will receive both Compound Lidocaine Cream and Dapoxetine.
Open or close this module Outcome Measures
Primary Outcome Measures:
1. Change of Intra-vaginal Ejaculation Latency Time(IELT)
[ Time Frame: After enrollment,after 4 weeks' treatment,after 8 weeks' treatment,after 12 weeks' treatment ]

Most commonly used in research on premature ejaculation.
2. Change of score of Premature ejaculation diagnostic tool(PEDT)
[ Time Frame: After enrollment,after 4 weeks' treatment,after 8 weeks' treatment,after 12 weeks' treatment ]

A questionnaire to evaluate and diagnose premature ejaculation
3. Change of grade Premature ejaculation profile(PEP)
[ Time Frame: After enrollment,after 4 weeks' treatment,after 8 weeks' treatment,after 12 weeks' treatment ]

A questionnaire consists of 4 questions to evaluate the 4 aspects of the symptom of premature ejaculation
4. The change of results of Nerve electrophysiological examination
[ Time Frame: After enrollment,after 12 weeks' treatment ]

To measure the penile sensory excitability and penile skin sympathetic excitability.
5. Clinical Global Impression of Change
[ Time Frame: After 12 weeks' treatment ]

A single question to measure the change after treatment
